What Is Metal Fabrication?

Metal fabrication is the process of building machines and structures from raw metal. It aims to process the flat metal to conform to specific shapes.

The process involves:

  • Cutting
  • Burning
  • Welding
  • Machining
  • Forming
  • Assembly

All these steps lead to creating the final product. Our metal fabrication projects for residential and commercial properties include hand railings, heavy equipment, machinery, cutlery and hand tools, architectural and structural metals, forging, stamping, and many others.

We are highly skilled specialists trained to cut and manipulate metal with precision to any desired shape.  Our services include general fabrication and specialized fabrication work.

How Much Does Metal Fabrication Cost?

New processes and technology have reduced the cost of metal fabrication over the years. The expected average cost of metal fabrication is $1,200 to $1,500. When you need metal fabrication with all kinds of designs, the price can reach up to $2,500 per ton.

The total cost will depend on the size and design needed. Metal fabrication projects that require steel longer than 30 feet will require additional costs. Unique, unusual, and custom design may also increase the price.

Types Of Metal Used In the Fabrication of Metal

There are a variety of metals used in our fabrication services. Every fabrication begins with sheet metal versions of these different types of metal. Although, some metals come in the form of pipes, tubes, or bar stock.

The most common types of metal that we use in our fabrication services are:

  • Aluminum: Used for low-temperature applications. It is lightweight and durable making it a popular choice in many fabrication projects.
  • Steel: Composed of iron and carbon. It is used in a wide range of fabrication projects. Carbon steel is the most used material for fabrication because of its strength and sturdiness. Stainless steel, on the other hand, is most commonly used for appliances and cabinet fittings.
  • Copper: It is known for its conductivity, malleability, and corrosion resistance.
  • Magnesium: It has a low density and is popular in fabricating aircraft and automobile parts.

We use the pipe and tube form of steel and aluminum metals, depending on the needs of the fabrication project. Precious metals like gold and silver are typically available in sheet or bar forms because of their great value.

Our team gives key consideration to the material used in the fabrication process. We have experienced technicians who fabricate according to your needs and requirements.

Sheet Metal Fabrication

We offer specialized fabrication services like sheet metal fabrication. This involves turning flat sheets of steel or aluminum into metal structures or products, by cutting, bending, stretching, punching, folding, and assembling.  We create a functional part following a streamlined and precise process of fabrication.

The Metal Fabrication Process

Worker cutting metal with grinder - BigEasy Mobile WeldersOver the years, we have developed a streamlined metal fabrication process that allows us to deliver the desired outcome for our clients.

We get materials manufactured to the highest standards of the industry. The full process of our metal fabrication service includes the following steps:

1.  Design

Our team analyzes and adjusts your desired design. With custom metal fabrication, we will work with you to determine project requirements, manufacturing approaches, and areas of improvement. We use CAD software to create your desired design.

2.  Prototyping

We use 3D printing or rapid sheet metal prototyping to analyze the feasibility of the design. We will apply the needed adjustments as we consult with you.

3.  Programming

When the CAD design is finalized, we will proceed to program our computer-controlled machines used in the metal fabrication process. These machines produce the precise automated cutting, punching, and turning of the metal sheet to produce the desired outcome.

4.  Fabrication

Once programming is completed, fabrication begins. The duration of this process will depend on the complexity of the design and the process involved. The fabrication processes are:

  • Cutting

The most fundamental step can be accomplished through laser cutting, waterjet cutting, shearing, sawing, or flame cutting.

  • Casting

Molten metal is poured by the fabricator into a mold, cools down, and turns solid.

  • Forging

The raw metal is compressed with high-pressure machinery so that the fabricator can bend and shape it.

  • Punching

Turrets punch pre-designed patterns into the metal for whatever purpose it will serve, whether for aesthetics or utility.

  • Drawing

Tensile force is used to pull liquid metal into a tapered die.

  • Milling

Perforations are made on metal.

  • Drilling

Holes are drilled using a circular bit.

  • Turning

The metal goes into a spinning platform while a technician cuts it radially as it spins.

  • Extrusion

Cylindrical parts are formed as ram billets through a die.

  • Welding

Two or more metal parts are fused together using heat, pressure, or both.  A joint is formed by the metal parts as they cool.
