How We Customize Our Metal Fabrication Processes

January 25, 2019

Every successful custom metal fabricating shop makes use of various processes to meet all of their customers’ needs. One essential machining process used in metal fabrication is called subtractive manufacturing—it involves cutting a part into its desired final shape and size by removing excess material. As one of the final steps in the manufacturing process, this is where specific part requirements involving dimensions and surface finish can be addressed. Subtractive manufacturing involves the following processes.



Holes are created in the metal workpiece during the drilling process. The hole created is equal to the diameter of the drill bit that is used. Like other tools, drilling tools vary in size, speed and power depending on their function.



An important part of custom metal fabricating, the turning process involves the use of a non-rotary tool bit or other cutting tools to remove excess material from long and cylindrical workpieces. During the turning process, a cutting tool is placed in a linear position outside the final dimensions of the workpiece. As the workpiece rotates, the tool cuts away unwanted material.



Rotary cutters are used to remove excess material from a fabricated part in the milling process. Milling machines are one of the most versatile machining tools currently available in the industry. These machines function at different axes and at different speeds, and can handle metal workpieces of any size.
