Metal fabrication

It is usually starts with drawings in the shop include precise measurements along with that the next step is fabrication stage and finally, the installation of the project. It is building of metal structures by bending, assembling and cutting processes. The value added process involves the construction of structures and machines from raw materials.

Metal work is the process of working with metals to create assemblies, individual parts, or even large-scale structures. This term covers a range of work from huge bridges and ships to precisely the engine parts and delicate jewelry. Overall the process includes the range of tools, processes, and special skills.

Processes
Assembling
It is nothing but joining of pieces and is performed by welding, riveting, binding with adhesives, or bending in the method of crimped seam. Initially the starting materials, used for fabrication such as sheet metal, structural steel along with fasteners, flux and welding wire for joining the cut pieces.

 

Cutting
The process of cutting performed using chiseling, shearing and sawing. Cutting accomplished with a gas torch by pressing a lever on the torch that fire a flow of pure o2 into preheated metal. It triggers a chemical reason, oxy cutting works on ferrous metals and steel. If you need to cut aluminium, copper, titanium then you need other non-ferrous metals.

 

Bending
Bending performed using press brakes or hammering and other similar tools. In this modern fabricator company, use press brakes to either air-bend or coin the metal sheet. Off-line software’s makes programming CNC-Controlled press brakes efficient and seamless.

 

Raw Materials
Standard raw materials used by the fabricators such as
  • Casting
  • Welding
  • Plate metal
  • Tube stock
Fabrication
Fabrication engineering tradespersons cut, shape, join and complete the metal to repair or maintain the metal products and structures. It may produce patterns or moulds or metal castings. Apply the coating and work with a variety of materials.

 

Welding process
It plays the key role in steel fabrication.  The machine and formed parts assembled and tack welded into place, re-checked for its accuracy.  Suppose if dual weldments ordered a fixture used to find the parts for welding. Precautions needed to prevent warping of the weldments due to heat ratio. It includes re-designing the weldment to use fewer welds, using a fixture, covering the weldments in the sand while in cooling season, and straightening process after welding.
As the business, we grew from a small workshop before 35 years in the UK, as of now we have bunch of teams in various departments. We are one of the top companies in welding metal fabrication process that includes weld stainless steel, aluminium, mild steel, brass, copper etc. Our professional skilled workers offer a range of domestic and commercial welding services in the UK. We have customers throughout the UK because of our quality if services.
