Metal Fabrication process involves various stages, and each project is unique. However, the general process of custom steel fabrication works as below:
Designining: Fabricators work with clients to create diagrams of the project, whether by hand or CAD (computer-aided design) software while working with the customers.
Prototyping: Fabricators create a prototype before full production to ensure quality and application after the completion of the design. Prototyping is an optional part of the process and it is only implemented when there is a requirement from a client.
Programming: Drafting engineer translates CAD designs into automated, computer-controlled machines after the designing of prototyoing finishes.
Cutting: Among the most widely used cutting techniques are laser cutting, mechanical shearing, and water jet cutting. Fabricators also use other methods to cut plate and sheet metal.
Forming: Fabricators use folding, bending, stamping, punching, machining, and other methods to bend the metal into the desired shape.
Finishing: Fabricators use refining or coating methods to finish the product after the formation of the shape.
Assembling: If a product design requires assembly, fabricators may weld or incorporate other elements.
FFM holds CSA Standard W47.1, Certification of Companies for Fusion Welding of Steel
