Custom Metal Fabrication

Custom Metal Fabrication is a process where different materials are used to create a product or item in need of a custom look and feel. The word itself encompasses the whole procedure of fabrication of metal objects and component parts from raw material. Metal fabrication generally deals with anything metal related; such as making gates, windows, storage bins, table legs, door knobs, and many more such items. There are different metals that can be used for Custom Metal Fabrication such as stainless steel, chrome, brass, stainless steel, alloy steel, and others. Furthermore, it also involves making use of other materials such as plastics, fiberglass, wood, composites, etc.

A metal fabrication project involves a number of steps which include designing the product, purchasing the raw materials, installing the components, assembling the parts into a working platform, and testing to check whether the product or object is functional. After the product has been designed and ordered, the fabricator then prepares the design and makes use of CAD/CAM software to create the final deep drawing of the object. The final deep drawing is then sent to the manufacturer, who completes the task by manufacturing the object using the appropriate equipment.

One of the most common applications of metal fabrication is to make frames from metals such as aluminum, sheet metal, stainless steel, and zinc. Other popular uses include making windows and doors using metal, making gate posts, and creating table legs, shelf brackets, and many other such objects. Custom Metal Fabrication can be used in all sorts of fields and industries. The fabricator acquires basic welding, and metal-bending skills, as well as computer skills. The fabricator should have enough skill in working with welding equipment such as plasma torches, cutters, grinders, Sanders, and water jets.
