The matrix behind steel fabrication

December 30, 2015

Have you asked yourself what the fuss about steel fabrication is all about? It’s not only because it’s one of the mist admirable business ventures but also a creative exercise that structural technicians like to participate in. It encompasses all the processes involved in cutting, bending and even shaping steel to form an end product. It is different from other forms of welding in that it takes various pieces of metals and attaches them to create a pre-defined size and shape.  Fabrication companies hire talented technicians to assist them in transforming raw components into marketable items. The marketability of the products depends on how creative they are, as well as their ability to meet the purpose of the indented clients.

While some fab shops create standard products for sell in the open market, there are times when clients require items that are tailored to meet highly specific needs.  Custom steel fabrication comes in to fill the gap between  standard products and customer’s needs, by offering the option of having products designed with adjusted sizes and shapes. In most circumstances, there is minimal chance for error in custom fabrication, and hence the need for technicians to build as much experience as possible in the venture. A mechanist should be able to evaluate the original shape of raw materials, whether in form of a plate, pipe or a pre-shaped channel, and then see its potential look in a new application. Customers love having their work done by experienced technicians, which explains why it’s critical to transfer skill from old employees to new ones.

A large proportion of the steel fabrication process is hot and labour intensive, involving the use of pressure and electricity. However, there is a small fraction that can only be achieved by the use of n electric arc furnace. Baseline custom fabricating relies upon a wealth of experience in fabrication processes to remain on top the market in steelwork services.
