Steel Fabrication 101
Steel Fabrication 101
September 18, 2017

Steel fabrication has no doubt become indispensable in the construction industry. Many construction projects are consistently leaning towards the use of steel and steel-made products for durability and strength. As such, there has been a boom in the fabrication of steel. It has become possible to design iconic and unique structures because fabrication allows for customization for specific applications.

Besides the construction industry, food processing factories and movie sets also heavily rely on steel fabrication services.

It should be noted that among metals, steel promises more potential in a variety of application because it has very high tensile strength. Steel is able to handle large loads without fracturing. It is less susceptible damage through corrosion and fire. It is also possible to manipulate the properties of steel depending on the application at hand.

Steel has become desirable in the construction of strong and durable tools and structures.

As such, steel fabrication is an essential process in manufacturing and construction. Manipulating steel is a very hands-on experience involving the use of electricity and pressure. It is paramount for this process to be carried out in places with sufficient safety precautions. Fabricators must be dressed in flame resistant protective gear, appropriate eye goggles, and heavy working boots while working on steel.

Fabricators use several techniques to prepare steel products for long-lasting service. These techniques could be mechanical, manual or computer-controlled. Manual processes, such as cutting using saws, usually require reworking for smooth finishes. Mechanical means are smoother because they minimize human manipulation. Computer-controlled systems such as laser cutters are the best for flawless fabrication and pattern imprints. All these processes have their place in manufacturing steel products and are used together to achieve winning products.

At Baseline Custom Fabricating Ltd., we have given ourselves to producing the best steel products through skilled workmanship and using cutting-edge technology.

 

Steel fabrication is a very technical trade! It's important to obtain credentials from a good certification program!
