ESSENTIAL CAPABILITIES IN STEEL FABRICATION
WHAT IS STEEL FABRICATION?
Steel fabrication is the process of converting steel into structures or parts using a variety of fabrication processes.
We employ a variety of techniques to fabricate parts based on your specifications.
These methods include:
‐ Steel Extrusion
It is essential to ensure that your steel fabricator can handle all types of custom projects from complex structural steel components to small, fabricated parts.
Common uses for custom stainless-steel fabrication include:
‐ Structural steel framework
‐ Embedded steel parts
‐ High strength bolts
‐ Miscellaneous steel products
‐ Custom specialty fabrication
Steel is often used for structural support in buildings, bridges, and other large-scale construction projects.
Ensure that the steel fabricator has what you need for your type of projects such as the capabilities to produce quality columns, trusses, and other support structures.
Stainless steel is used as a trusted material by many industries. For example, airplane components, railways, wind turbines, and other large parts are often made from stainless steel due to its durability and affordability.
For some projects you will need equipment to handle the production of smaller parts.
Embedded and miscellaneous steel projects may include anything from stairs and handrails to anchor bolts and roof frames.
During your factory visit, check to see if they are equipped to provide reliable solutions no matter the size or scope of your project.
From steel frames and high-volume runs to individual machine components, they should be able to offer efficient fabrication services in areas such as:
‐ Short-run or high-volume projects
‐ Fast turnaround for custom fabrication
‐ Reliable quality assurance processes
‐ Complete secondary operations
‐ Initial sample submission
If you need functional prototypes or a high-volume production run, they should be able to cater to your needs.
They should have a team that can oversee the process from start to finish, making your product development cycle easier.
Look for someone you can partner you during the design process to reduce the need for later revisions.
Fast turnaround is important to be on schedule.
They should have prototypes ready to ship quickly to help keep your development cycle on schedule.
For short runs and long runs, they should be able to offer quotes as soon as possible to get your parts into production.
As you insist high standards for your project, so should you insist on similar high standards when it comes to your finished product.
The quality assurance processes are a crucial step, ensuring that your parts meet or exceed your expectations, down the detailed activities like checking the function, performance, and measurements for precision and quality.
