What does it mean to have metal fabrication?
- May 07, 2018 -

Metal is fabrication is the process of assembling a metal structure from individual parts made from standard metal stock which can include, sheet, plate, bar and tube (as well as extrusions in the case of aluminium).

This can include various processes used to cut the metal to size, shape it and join it such as :

machining

bending

abrasive grinding

folding

cold forming, including open die forming and pressing

drilling and punching

welding brazing and soldering

Fabrication also tends to imply that at least some of the parts are (more or less) permanently joined and so it tends to be closely associated with welding processes.
