Metal fabrication techniques

Metal fabrication

When the metal Fabricators are at work on a project there are a few methods that are at the disposal fabricate a metal fabrication of metal is done in order to create a structure or a machine, structures are most of the time done in order to construct the skeleton for a building project or sometimes to build a particular object such as box in iron railing or sometimes creating iron cages to keep Birds are wild animals, they also create raw materials to make a machine which should be used for various purposes sometimes even for metal fabrication here are a few basic metal fabricating methods that will be at the disposal of the metal Fabricators.

Metal bending

This is a process which is considered to be the easiest than compared to other methods. The time metal bending in small shops is done using hammer manually. To get the most precise metal bending metal brake is made use of in this technique the metal is made two lie flat on a surface, a flat bar is clamped to the top of the metal and then a gated portions lifted in order to bend the metal to the angle you have to bend the metal to.

Metal cutting

Metal cutting.

This is another most important method that is used the process of fabricating a metal. In this process, the metal pieces are cut using various tools such as hand shears, power shears, throatless shears, Angle grinder, or plasma cutters. Hand shears are considered to be one of the most important tools that any metal fabricated should have with him in this a metal fabricator cuts the metal manually, power shears are quick and will need a very less amount of effort then compare two hand shears. throatless shears are designed to cut straight lines and also shapes in the metal without any waste of material or marring edges. An angle grinder is a handheld tool that spins an attached wheel to cut the metal. Plasma cutters are considered to be the best of all the cutters as they give precision and there is very little wastage that is done when using a plasma cutter.

Metal shrinking

This is a very old method, and in fact, the earliest method of shrinking method In this process the Metal bunches are tucked with the hammer to form the desired sheet. In the method of shrinking, It has moving textured jobs that grab hold of the metal sheet from top and bottom and force them together. Using a shrinker is much more precise than tucking a metal. In heat shrinking fabricator hits an area which is overstretched with the torch and that metal shrinks to the normal size when it cools down.

Metal shrinking

Metal stretching.

In the hammer and Dolly method an object is placed behind the metal and hit on the opposite side which causes the metal to increase the surface They also make use of sandbags and plastic mallets to increase the surface area of the metal quickly. In the stretching machine, it does the inverse of shrinking machine it pulls both the top and down of the metal slowly instrumental stresses.

These are some of the ways that metal fabrication takes place, and each of these methods has the room pros and cons.

What do you mean by welding and fabrication?

Welding

Metal fabrication and welding are two words that are always used on the same plain, but in fact metal fabrication means the process of creating an object through different steps that will have to be followed by every metal fabricator and welding is one of the steps involved during the process of metal fabrication, it is easy to get confused as fabrication means joining two materials together or combining two materials together and welding is a method of combining two metal objects together, as you can see in the above sentence metal fabrication is called as a Process and welding is a Method of sticking or joining two metals.

Here is a brief description of metal fabrication and welding.

Metal fabrication.

In this process two or more metals are made to undergo a process that will combine them together the process starts with the metal being cut to procession as given in the blueprint this is the step where they will have to be very careful as even a small variation in measurement can result in a huge difference and the product that is about to be given to the client will be completely out of measurement hence is very essential to make sure that you are cutting the metal precisely according to the measurement give another blueprint there are computerized ways of cutting the metal pieces in order to get the most accurate cut of the metal. After the metal is cut the metal is a either made to bend or stretch or shrink Obtaining the same that is required of as in the blueprint the precision has to be maintained even while bending the metal as it can change the shape of the final product if not went to the right angle there are various ways of bending a metal one of the old and ancient ways of bending a metal is by hammering in the metal to the desired angle or placing it between two iron rods on a wooden plant and then bending it using an iron bending Lever, another way to bend the metal is by using the metal brake machine which will bend the metal to the desired shape with much less effort than compared to the previous other methods of bending metal. After the process of bending metal is completed the last step that is involved in metal fabrication is to combine both the metal pieces using various techniques one of the most used technique is the welding technique, the adhesive technique just a name a few.

It is here that confusion comes between metal fabrication and welding together.

Welding.

Welding is a process of combining two or more metal pieces different types of welding are followed depending on the circumstance the welding method is chosen. Different types of welding methods are
MIG(inert metal gas) or gas metal arc welding.
Arc welding or shielded metal arc welding.
TIG(inert tungsten gas).
FCAW(flux-cored arc welding)

These are some of the metal welding methods that are used. And welding is just a method of combining two metals and metal fabrication is the process that is involved in combining two metals.

What does a metal fabricator do?

Fabricator

The metal fabricator is the one who measures cuts and fixes two pieces of metal together he also Aligns different types of metal Together metal Fabricators work most of the time in factories or construction sites as their job role requires of them to cut metals bend the metals and to join two pieces of metal together.

Here are a few requirements that a metal fabricator needs to meet to be qualified as a metal fabricator.

Qualification

Qualifications for a metal fabricator.

In this kind of job most of the time the metal Fabricators gets trained at the job site but here are a few training that a metal fabricator can go through in order to be a qualified metal fabricator he can receive training on welding under which they will study on blueprint reading various welding techniques, different types of metal and steel fabrication safety regulation which is the most important and welding is one among the many things that a metal fabricator does in order to fabricate the middle.

Skills required of a metal fabricator.

apart from learning different types of welding and also being taught how to read a blueprint a good dexterity is important for this job role some of the important qualities that a metal Fabricators should possess are a good knowledge of mathematics great mechanical skills and above all a very good physical stamina as the Fabricators has to stand for extended periods of time and use the machinery or the computer and sometimes even lift the metal pieces which can be huge these are some of the skills required of a metal fabricator to be the best at this job.

Responsibilities

Responsibilities of a metal fabricator.

Most of the people who are working in this field work and plants, factories and even Constructions sites metal Fabricators main work on cars,aircrafts and also some of the electronic devices just to name of you in the various steps involved in fabricating a metal the number of people who will be given a job for a particular process the sometimes differs the metal Fabricators will be employed in excess for a job like bending a metal sometimes they can also be employed at large in places like welding the metal pieces it varies from factory to factory depending on the product that they are manufacturing but at the end of the day they will have to be really well versed in interpreting blueprints and cutting metals to the right angle. They will also have to be well versed in the various techniques that come along with improvement in technology that keeps happening now and then.

This kind of career will be very fulfilling to people who love working hands-on manually and love to use their physical strength much in their work and are not disturbed by the noisy atmosphere around, learning for a metal fabricator varies from place to place , But on the overview, they are well paid for the service they render

What is metal fabrication

Metal fabrication process

Metal fabrication refers to the process of constructing metal structures back cutting bending and fabricating the pieces; this process is followed to create machines parts that form as the raw material for structure. Most of the time this is done based on drawings provided by the engineer to construct a particular structure. This process is done by computerized machinery also known as robots, but in small-scale welding shops this is done by two or more people who are assigned to that particular project. This process starts with the engineer drawing out the details with precise measurements and then handing it out to the Assembly line which is then supposed to load it into the computer and make the Machines work or give it to the people who are in charge for assembling that particular structure.
Some of the work done in metal fabrication are the construction of hand railings structural frames for buildings and sometimes also building heavy pieces of equipment.

Here is a more brief explanation of the process followed for fabricating metal.

Metal cutting

The process of cutting.

This is accomplished by Sawing the metal into 2 pieces or by shearing the metal or by chiseling All of this can be accomplished either manually or by using power tools such as a drill, saw, etc. cutting can also be done by torching using plasma torches or oxy-fuel torches. There are cutters of different variables that are available in the market today. One of the present and most innovative forms of cutting is the water Jet cutter which makes use of water and passes the water through the metal at very high speed this cuts the metal, laser cutting Technology is another recent innovation. The process of cutting is the most important in the process of fabricating two metal pieces.

Process of bending

This is another most important step in the process of fabricating two metal pieces, it is essential to bend the metal piece to the right angle using the right tool even a little mistake while bending the metal will result in redoing the entire process all over again, hence it is essential to use the right kind of tools and also make sure that you are bending the metal to the given measurement precisely here are a few ways the process of building a metal can take place. Using a regular hammer one can bend the metal, but you will have to be very precise and perfect in your measurements, press brakes another innovation which will enable us to get the most accurate and perfected to the point result.

 

The process of assembling.

This is the last and final step in the process of fabricating this is the last and the most important step, in this step both metal pieces will have to be joined together, most of the time this process is done by welding both metal pieces together or sometimes binding them with adhesives or riveting or threaded fasteners These are various ways through which the process of assembling takes place.
