Metal Fabrication: The Complex Processes of Customization Made Simple

February 08, 2018

Over the years, the industrial sector has relied more on metal fabricating for a wide variety of applications. Fabricated machines are necessary to facilitate processes in automobile factories, food processing facilities, construction companies, and the list could go on.


The value of metal fabricating, whether in sheets or specific parts, is in precision, speed and cost. They can be done either manually or mechanically, using computer-controlled technology (CNC machines and CAD design) for increased efficiency, safety and production cost.


One of the great benefits offered by metal fabricating is the opportunity for product customization. The process goes beyond cutting, bending and assembling of the metal parts. Custom metal fabrication integrates the client’s needs and unique specifications in every step of the manufacturing process. The various and complex processes can be simplified into three basic stages.


  • Design stage - Conceptualization of the final product as well as the tools required. The dimensions are visualized and analyzed with the aid of CAD or other computer-based tools.


  • Build stage - This second part of custom metal fabricating involves technical knowledge and expertise to determine which techniques are best suited to create the end product, like laser or plasma cutting. All the processes and methods are to be considered but selecting only those which are the most appropriate. The most common methods include sawing, lathing, milling, cutting, bending, welding, and many more. The fabrication can use one or a combination of several processes to achieve the desired output.


  • Finishing stage - During this final phase, the various components are enjoined together to form the finished product. This is when polishing of rough edges and cleaning are also done. Testing of the final product is carried out to ensure quality.    


Given the diversity and complexity of custom metal fabricating, it is best to partner with a company with an established reputation and highly-skilled staff.
