A Break-Down of Metal Fabricating

July 05, 2021

In the case of almost every metal item found in your home or office, these are the results of custom metal fabrication. It is important to note that economies rely heavily on metal fabricating processes for the creation of metal products in a number of locations. However, many of us may not fully understand what this process is all about and how important it is throughout our daily lives.


Metal fabrication is one of our specialties at Baseline Custom Fabricating Ltd., and we are dedicated to meeting your needs with our range of capabilities. 


We would like to break down metal fabrication to help one appreciate and visualize it better. Let’s start with defining what metal fabricating is. Basically, it is a process of manipulating sheet metal to create certain shapes for products or parts.

Strategies and materials

Forming sheet metal into different shapes is done through various processes. These include cutting, stamping, shaping, folding, and welding. Depending on the fabrication project, creating the final product can require combinations of some or all of these methods. Typically, the metal fabricator will determine the strategies and materials to be used based on the project requirements.

Machinery and tools

This industry has been active for several years, and significant technological advancements continue to occur. While basic improvements have been made, the technology has seen further developments, which help fabricators utilize modern machinery and advanced tools when working on projects.

Software and automation

Some of the most vital technologies used for metal fabricating today include specialized software that aids in making designs. Another factor that also drives growth in the industry is automation, which greatly revolutionizes the fabrication process by allowing machines to perform with less human intervention. This results in improved machinery overall, making it possible for fabricators to create multiple complex products that are available today.
