Industrial steel fabrication involves the shaping, joining, and/or forming of metal. This process usually happens by deforming or removing some of the raw material.

3 Things You Didn’t Know About Industrial Steel Fabrication

If you are unfamiliar with the intricacies of industrial steel fabrication, this may seem like a simple one- or two-step process. But steel fabrication is much more complex than you may believe. Here are a few things you may not know about what industrial steel fabrication looks like:

  1. Industrial steel fabrication requires multiple steps—Fabricating steel may involve machining, welding, cutting, shearing, and forming the steel. We carefully plan and execute these essential steps to determine the lead time and provide an accurate estimate before fabrication begins.
  2. We use multiple types of equipment—Just like the fabrication process is highly varied, so are the different pieces of equipment we use. On any given job, we may use a lathe, grinder, press brake, and table saw. The combination of equipment we use varies depending on the individual project.
  3. Fabrication is not a limitless process—There are some limits to what you can accomplish with industrial steel fabrication. Although our customization capabilities are extensive, fabrication still has its limits. For example, certain design specifications may not be compatible with steel and the other materials being used for the project as a whole.
