Using a Fabrication Company

Metal fabrication is a process that involves the creation of metal structures, components and products through a range of different techniques. It can be extremely difficult to find the exact fit and correct measurement for a component that you require. Don’t compromising with a poorly fitting product when a fabrication company like NU Gears can manipulate and customise metal products and parts to be made to your exact specifications.

Fabrication Techniques

Metal fabrication and the process’s involved in manipulating sheet metal have changed throughout the years and have be adapted by each fabrication company.  However, many industries and fabrication companies use a combination of multiple techniques to get the desired outcome from the fabrication process.

These fabrication techniques include:

Cutting: Unwanted material can be quickly removed from the metal block regarding customer measurements through cutting. This accurate cut can be done in many ways whether it is with a laser cutter, water jet or more traditional saws.

Bending: The most commonly used method known as press brakes is the process of placing the metal on a flat, gated surface, clamping a flat bar on top of it, and lifting the gated portion to bend the metal to the desired angle; leaving sharp bends and angles within the metal.

Welding: Finished components are formed, and the metal pieces are welded together to produce more complex and larger structures for the customer or project.  An adjustable torch is used to create a controlled flame to heat and weld the metal pieces.

Machining: A fabrication company should have the machining capabilities using metal mills, drills and lathes to remove waste material from block metal to create a bespoke and tailored product for customers.

Shearing: Working like a pair of scissors, shear machines cut sheet metal to all different thicknesses depending on the configuration and size of the machinery.
