The Processes Involved During Custom Steel Fabrication

March 12, 2021

Custom steel fabrication is closely related to metal fabrication, however the components are made through different processes and technologies. The most popular methods in fabricating steel and other metals are lathing, grinding, milling, honing, welding, among many others. Nonetheless, there are many fabrication shops, like Baseline Custom Fabrication Ltd., that offer specialties that would be suitable for the needs of your business projects. Serving as a very essential component for a lot of manufacturing companies, the application of steel fabrication covers industries from electrical to automotive. As time has passed, the use of steel as the most desirable raw materials has resulted in the standardization of many metal parts and products. 


Now, if you also need custom steel fabrication, it’s important that you understand the processes involved in creating the part or final product you need.


There are some fundamental fabrication processes that your project may have to go through. One is casting, which has been around for many years already. It involves forcing the molten or liquid metal into a mould that once cooled down will harden, obtaining the desired shape of the product. This process is perfect for metal parts that have complicated geometries because it offers the highest degree of flexibility. Though steel is popularly used in casting, there are also other materials utilized such as iron, gold, aluminum, silver, copper, and even concrete. 

Other processes used during custom steel fabrication are forming and expanding the raw materials. Casting is indeed very common but shearing the metal sheet is also done, which creates the expanded raw material. It expands the steel to its desired size while achieving the intended shaped holes that are enveloped by interconnected strands of metal. The final products look very appealing, making them suited for architectural purposes. They come in various thicknesses as well as grating sizes. 

If you have a project that requires intricate work, Baseline Custom Fabrication Ltd. has been specializing in custom metal work for over 30 years across Toronto, the GTA and Durham. Contact us today to learn more about how we can assist your business.
