What is Metal Fabrication and How Does It

Work?

What is Metal Fabrication?

When any metal undergoes various processes to take the form of structures or

machines, it is known as Metal Fabrication. It is the designing and manufacturing

of quality metal products in accordance to specified configurations. The

standard processes of metal fabrication include shearing using ​shear blades​,

machining, welding, rolling, grinding, etc. The computer controlled procedures

can be laser cutting, punching, bending, and forming. Being automated by

programming codes, these procedures offer clear-cut specifications along with

precision. Metal Fabrication is a value added process where the value of the

metal increases as it undergoes various procedures.

How does it work?

The Bidding

Metal fabricators are specialized in the field to execute the work with utmost

care and perfection. Most of the large scale manufacturing units have in-house

fabricators. If not, they are frequently in contact with other fabrication units,

also known as fab shops. Fabricators bid on jobs by providing drawings and the

whole plan of the project. The work may vary from building of a hand railing,

machinery parts, to whole structures for buildings. Once the agreement is

finalized, the real work starts.

The Planning

Apposite skills and strategic planning is required for the work. All the stages to

be executed are pre-planned and sorted. The raw materials are ordered which

commonly include plate metal, formed metal, expanded metal, welding wire,

hardware, castings and fittings, as is appropriate for the given work. Engineers

are also involved from the beginning when the work is outsourced by a

manufacturing plant.

Execution

Fabrication alters a mere heap of metals to high-end machineries and building

structures. The task includes intricate procedures and is executed by

professionals. Firstly, the metal is cut using tools like laser cutters, bandsaws,

burn tables, water jet cutters, CNC machines, etc. Another process common

during the fabrication is forming or shaping of metals. The shape of the raw

material is modified using tools like punches or dies under this process. Rolling

machines and tube bending machines are used for the making of round sections

of the metals.

After the primary processes, the task of compilation or assembling is done. The

product formed by the previous process is welded together to get the desired

shape, size and functionality. The metal is cooled down so that it can be

sandblasted and painted. The final product is tested for quality assurance and

shipped over to the client. To ensure quality it is important to keep the cutting

tools in top working condition. For example laser cutting machines should be

regularly serviced and all the ​laser parts and consumables ​are regularly replaced.
