Metal fabrication involves converting raw metals into different shapes for use in the assembly process. Fabrication of metals is an essential process in industries such as construction and manufacturing. Fabrication techniques are employed to turn raw materials into processed metal structures and these structures are used in building machines, buildings, and bridges.

Where is Metal Fabrication and in particular Welding used?

The list is extensive - from tools and equipment to art and construction. Metal is formed and shaped in different ways to form all sorts of things we use in our day to day living. Consider:

  • Aircraft construction
  • Automobile and truck construction
  • Bridges
  • Buildings
  • Cutting tools
  • Dies
  • Earth moving equipment/cranes
  • Furniture
  • Jewellery making
  • Art/Sculpture
  • Machine tools
  • Pipes
  • Pressure vessels/tanks
  • Railways and locomotives
  • Ships
  • Storage tanks
