Frequently Asked Questions

  • What is metal fabrication?


    In the manufacturing process, metal fabrication plays an important role. Metal fabrication involves constructing machines and structures from raw metal materials. A wide range of everyday products are dependent on it, from smartphones, medical devices, and computers to vehicles, heavy machinery, and appliances to name a few. Usually, metal fabrication manufacturers cut, burn, weld, machine, and form sheet metal parts, then assemble and finish them to create these wide range of products.
