Metal Fabrication Processes :-

 

  • Cutting:-  The most commonly used metal fabrication processes involve cutting, where sheets of metal are split into halves, thirds or smaller sections. In a lot of applications, the metal being cut is freshly made, and has yet to be shaped into anything in particular.
  • Folding:- One of the more complicated processes of metal fabrication involves folding, where a metal surface is manipulated to shape at a certain angle. With certain folding applications, the intent is to make the metal surface fold at a 90-degree angle, or something else that’s either more or less blunt.
  • Welding:– Welding is one of the most popular metal fabrication processes among crafts enthusiasts. The process of welding involves the joining of two separate metal parts. The parts used in a welding application could be sheets, panels, bars or shapes — as long as the parts are made of metal, it really doesn’t matter. are meant to be joined. A lot of metalworkers first pursue the area of metal fabrication with welding projects in mind.
  • Machining. When a machine is used to remove portions from a piece of metal, the process is known as machining. Typically, the process is performed on a lathe, which will rotate the metal against tools that trim corners and edges to cut the piece down to a desired shape or measurement.
  • Punching. When holes are formed in a piece of metal, the process involved consists of punching, where metal is placed under a die and submitted to a punch-through by a drill. Punching falls into one of two sub categories based on the intention of a given application.

Applications:-

Many everyday items are manufactured using the metal fabrication process, such as:

Blinds,Cans, Handles, Heaters, Locks, Keys, Latches, Pots, Silverware, Fans,Chairs,Hinges,

Lamps,Faucets,Appliances,Tools,Sinks,Fasteners
