Stainless steel fabrication is an exciting industry. The YouTube video “Introduction to stainless steel fabrication” offers insight into stainless steel fabrication.
Steps in Stainless Steel Fabrication
Steel fabrication starts with sourcing raw materials of high quality. The raw material (steel) is then manufactured into something else.
This process involves bending, welding, or cutting the raw material before transforming it. The final product is used in construction or assembly. Let’s look at a simple example. A property owner may want to put steel bars as a decorative feature around their property. The property owner provides the steel manufacturer with the measurements and design. The fabricator and owner agree on a price, and the fabricator sources the material. The fabricator builds the fencing according to the requirements of the property owner.
Another simple example is the auto manufacturing industry. A car builder might need a component manufactured from steel. A designer at the auto manufacturer will design the part through software. The design is sent to the steel fabricator. The fabricator builds the components and ships them back to the auto manufacturer. The process requires in-depth knowledge of the industry and skills. People who work in steel fabrication are often tradesmen.
