Metal Fabrication FAQs
The metal fabrication process involves shaping raw metals and semi-finished metal products into a specific form, such as a machinery part, metal structure or finished product.
The process includes bending, forming, cutting, burning, welding, machining, and assembly of the final product.
There are many different fabrication methods. The most popular methods include:
Since in most of the cases the metals enter the fabrication stage as semi-finished or pre-fabricated products as rolls, plates or sheets, the most common techniques are:
- Cutting: Cutting parts of raw metal using torches, water jets, lasers or plasma CNC cutting machines.
- Bending: Forming the metal sections and pieces into the required shape by bending it using brake press machinery.
- Assembling: The final stage of most metal fabrication processes is assembling metal parts or sheets into the product’s final form. This can be done by welding, seaming, screwing and fastening parts together.
Metal fabrication machines include:
- Lathe Machines
- CNC Laser Cutting
- Milling Machine
- Powder Coating Rooms
- Grinding Machine
- CNC Routers
- Drilling Machines
- Shaper Machines
- Broaching Machines
- Saw Machines
- Planer Machine
- Shearing Machines
- Drill Press
- Brake Press
Metal fabrication tools include:
- Cutting Saws
- Deburring Tools
- Beveling Tools
- Throatless Shear
- Wire Cutters
- Drill Bits
- An Auto-darkening Helmet
- Angle Finders
- Cutting Glasses
- Drill Bits
For most metal fabrication services such as welding, cutting and press-bending, both the fabrication shop and each fabricator have to be separately certified.
Product design is the general idea of a product’s functionality, characteristics and uses; it could simply be a concept designed by a designer, inventor or any individual.
Fabrication design (or production design) is the planning of the actual manufacturing, be it a prototype, finished product or production line to produce it. This would typically be designed by engineers or CNC programmers.
Welding is one of the fabrication stages of metal fabrication, whereas metal fabrication is the overall process.
Steel Fabrication FAQs
Steel fabrication is a process of shaping, forming and combining structures out of steel and its alloys. Steel fabrication includes cutting, bending and assembling metal components into the desired end product or prototype according to an engineer’s specifications.
The steel fabrication process includes (but is not limited to) cutting, machining, punching, drilling, bending or straightening, rolling, welding, forming and final component assembly.
Carbon Steel – A type of steel containing carbon element on a 0.05% to 2.1% percent scale. This type of steel becomes stronger after heat treatment, but loses its flexibility. It’s also harder to fabricate.
Stainless Steel – This is a steel alloy of iron, chromium and other metals such as nickel. The corrosion-resistance properties make it widely used across industries like food, medicine, energy and construction.
Galvanized Steel – This is a steel with a protective zinc coating layer applied to protect it from corrosion.
Aluminum – This is a steel alloy with special properties of lightness, flexibility and corrosion-resistance, which is used in many industries such as aviation, aerospace, automotive, and medical.
Custom fabrication is a full cycle metal fabrication process conducted by the manufacturer – including fabrication engineering, prototype design, production, assembly, and delivery logistics of the final product to the client’s facility.
Fabrication shops, or fabricators, conduct the processes of shaping raw metal components into parts that used to build final products such as machinery or metal structures across different industries. Fabricators work according to the specifications provided or engineer custom prototypes based on their client’s ideas.
Stainless steel has almost the same properties as regular steel, except it has more flexibility which makes its fabrication relatively easy. However, engineering such as strengthening and hardening is more complex and only offered by specialized fabrication shops.
Typically, a steel fabrication engineer is responsible for designing a steel product, commissioning the manufacturing process, and in many cases, setting up the specifications and functions of the entire manufacturing line.
Each process or end product is calculated individually based on the level of customization, fabrication complexity and other production components. As a basic calculation, the costs of steel fabrication could be estimated as about 3 times that of the initial raw material. So if the cost of the raw metal itself is $500, its fabrication into structural steel could cost around $1500.
