Here are a few facts you may not know about metal fabrication and its role in your life:


Fact #1: The earliest practice of fabrication originated from the Egyptians back in 4000 BC when they were bending and shaping gold.

Fact #2: There were more than 4000 laborers including blacksmiths, riggers, and painters worked together in constructing the Sydney Harbor Bridge. There was no single welder employed, however, since industrial welding at that time was still in a developmental stage. What held the bridge together was 6 million steel rivets.

Fact #3: The initial attempt to do welding in space was done by Russian Cosmonauts in 1969, which led to the technology advancements needed in building the international space station. The deepest underwater weld was performed at a staggering depth of 11,500 feet, laying an extra-long pipeline from Oman to India.

Fact #4: Long before a car hits the road, there are more than 950 hours of welding and metal fabricating spent in creating the vehicle from scratch. The hours include working on roll cages as well as on suspension and chassis.

Fact #6: If you don’t know it yet, more than half of the products surrounding us have gone through some form of welding and fabrication. These include the cell phone you are always holding, the bridges you passes by everyday, the appliances you use daily at home and at work, and so on. The list is almost endless.
