Learn All About Custom Metal Fabrication

Custom metal fabrication is a process where metals are cut, formed, and assembled to create custom and unique products. This can include anything from small parts and components to large structures and buildings. 

Cut To Size and Shape

The process of custom metal fabricating usually starts with a designer creating drawings or blueprints of the desired product. From there, the metal is cut to size and shape using a variety of methods, including sawing, waterjet cutting, laser cutting, and more. 

Assembled Using Rivets

Once the metal is cut to the correct size and shape, it is then formed into the desired shape using methods such as stamping, bending, welding, and machining. Finally, the various parts are assembled using rivets, screws, or welding to create the finished product. 

Construction And Manufacturing

Metal fabrication that is custom is used in a wide variety of industries, from aerospace and automotive to construction and manufacturing. It can be used to create everything from small simple parts and components to large complex structures and buildings.
