Steel Fabrication 101

Steel fabrication is a term a lot of people are unsure of in regards to the process and outcome, and understandably so. Steel fabrication has changed a lot over the years, and includes a much broader array of finishes and solutions for customers looking for process options for their business.

Steel fabrication machines can now quickly “construct” what once took a skilled tradesman many man-hours to complete, and can provide modern cutting techniques in no time that were once a laborious task.

That being said, modern steel fabrication machines and practices are still an art form, and a skilled eye and knowledgeable CNC Machining Technician is still required to execute a project properly.

Understanding Steel Fabrication Machinery

Some fabrication shops are still fixed with traditional mechanical press brake machinery, while others have upgraded to the latest hydraulic system, but regardless of the equipment used – skill remains the most important factor.

At Absolute Fabrication, our metal processing involves profile plate burning, shearing, forming, and cutting equipment. From gauge material to 10” plate our profile-cutting table can cut any shape and quantity you need. Shearing and forming capacity up to 3/8”.Our HyD MACH S-20 band saw can cut up to 18 1/2” wide, 13” round material or stack material for fast repetitive processing.

Buying modern machinery, or hiring a company that boasts of their equipment capabilities, is truly only as useful as the person operating them. So choose wisely.

The Importance of Quality Designed Steel Fabrication

The design concept you have for any given project is only as good as the solution or final product it creates.

Whether you require a large-scale steel fabrication project in Langley, or need a steel fabricated prototype in Surrey to display a function your business is trying to sell – hiring a company who can draft and design your project is imperative to your results. Ideas are a great start, but the real-time solutions they offer, and the ability to implement them is what needs to be the final result.
