MetalÃ¢â¬Å¡ fabricationÃ¢â¬Å¡ is the building of metal structures by cutting, bending, and Welding assembling processes...
The initial process of heavy metal fabrication involves cutting metal pieces into their required shapes and sizes. This is done using saw cutting, gas or flame cutting, laser cutting, waterjets and/or plasma cutting.
DRILLING AND PUNCHING:
Drilling and punching are done to allow sections to be bolted together. Drilling involves the use of high-speed rotating twist bits that cut through the metal while punching uses a mechanical component that is forced through the metal under high pressure.
BENDING AND ROLLING:
Some parts are made of bent or cylindrical metal which will need to be shaped as such. Bending or rolling in heavy metal fabrication is done using section bending, plate bending, tube bending, press braking and tee splitting. In these methods, bending is achieved by passing metals plates through a set of bending rolls that are shaped to the cross section of the bar.
Welding is used to prepare connection joints to attach fixtures and fittings. Here several methods are used that include stick welding, TIG welding, MIG welding, flux-cored arc welding and submerged arc welding among many others.
