Metal fabrication is the process of building machines and structures from raw metal materials. The process includes cutting, burning, welding, machining, forming and assembly to create the final product.
Metal fabrication projects include everything from hand railings to heavy equipment and machinery. The main benefit of metal fabrication shops is the centralization of these processes – often required to be performed in parallel. The metal fabrication industry is highly cyclical and depends on industries such as auto, aerospace, construction and energy.
