What is Metal Fabrication?

Metal fabrication involves creating metal structures by performing processes such as cutting, bending, and assembling. Another way of understanding the process is knowing that the fabrication process is also considered as manufacturing sheet metal and other flat metals to conform to specific shapes.

Another related process in fabrication is custom fabrication. This involves creation of new parts using novel combinations of the different processes during fabrication like stamping, shaping, and folding.

We’re made up of a team of highly-skilled metal fabricator specialists who are trained to perform all fabrication processes with precision to the desired shape.

Our well-planned fabrication process works for small and big projects with metal parts such as:

  • Plate metal
  • Expanded metal
  • Formed metal
  • Wire for welding
  • Hardware
  • Fittings
  • Castings

Our metal fabrication team uses the most advanced technology and trending practices in the metal fabrication industry to create and build structures from raw materials.

Where to Buy Metal for Fabrication

There are specific custom iron manufacturers and suppliers who provide high-quality stainless steel that is highly durable.

The type of metal used for the fabrication process usually depends on the application it will be used and individual metal characteristics like:

  • Strength
  • Conductivity
  • Flexibility
  • Resistance to corrosion

In the metal fabrication industry, the types of metal used are:

1. Carbon Steel

The most common material we use for our metal fabrication services is carbon steel. It is the predominant metal in the fabrication industry because it has the most versatile options.

Carbon steel can be used in most major applications in construction and machinery.

Its outstanding features include:

  • Strength
  • Sturdiness
  • Readily available in a wide range of thicknesses and stock sizes

2. Stainless Steel

Our clients love stainless steel for manufacturing and metal fabrication because of its distinctive polished feature. The components (carbon steel, aluminum, and chromium) of stainless steel make it durable, corrosion-resistant, and resistant to tarnishing in the air.

Our expert manufacturing and metal fabricators love working with this material because it is easy to work with in both the fabrication and welding processes.

3. Aluminum Fabrication

This favorite lightweight material for metal fabrication is common in many industries, especially those that need fabrication projects that cannot deal with a lot of weight.

Our most common clients who choose aluminum fabrication include the automotive and aerospace industries.

The best features of aluminum that make it the best choice for fabrication are:

  • lightweight
  • durable
  • versatile
  • has good thermal properties

We use only high-quality metal that will deliver what our clients expect. We go through a planning process before fabrication to make sure that we use the perfect type of metal for the fabrication project.

We cut and design metals to their precise details according to the design that our clients desire.

The types of metal we use in every fabrication project are sourced from manufacturers who strictly follow industry standards. This ensures that the fabrication project will ultimately lead to customer satisfaction.

How Much Does Metal Fabrication Cost?

Metal grinder - Big Easy Iron Works

The advancement of technology has made it possible to make metal fabrication easier and more convenient. This has also led to greater production at a lesser cost.

The national average for a metal manufacturing project is $1,843. A manufacturing project typically ranges from $625 to $3,138. The main factor that would determine the cost of a metal manufacturing project is the size and design you require.

Unique and customized designs will incur additional charges for manufacturing, especially if there are more needed cuts and other processes to make sure that the design is right and in order to make things fit properly.
