The term “fabrication” means to make something from
raw materials whether it’s wood, plastic or certain types of metals. Several
industries currently benefit from aluminium fabrication which refers mostly to
the construction of metal structures. Choosing a material is a critical
decision in all aspects of the production but so is the finishing process.
Although you can fabricate any metal, aluminium is
considered one of the most common resulting in big demand for aluminium
fabrication services across the world. It’s not surprising if you consider that
aluminium is all around us in our homes and office buildings. Some of the most
common are aluminium gates and aluminium frameworks used for doors, windows and
An engineering company can only be successful with
high-quality custom fabrication coupled with expert knowledge, experience and
continuous investment. We’re not only talking about investing in equipment but
also staff training and hiring. In order to provide the quality and service
excellence customers deserve, equipment and staff must be of the highest level.
There are three core factors that determine success in manufacturing and that includes production cost, quality and speed. While each component plays a crucial role, manufacturers must fully commit to all three to reach and remain within the top tier.
Let’s take a look at some of the recent fabrication projects at PRV Engineering and find out more about coded welding and finishing.
Metal fabrication refers
to processes involving cutting, shaping or moulding a raw material (metal) into
a final product. Metal components are available in a wide variety of dimensions
and materials such as sheet metal, metal rods and metal bars. The metal
fabrication process involves a wide range of skills and disciplines from profiling,
bending and forming, cropping, coded welding to assembly and painting.
It is, without a doubt,
a specialist process that requires expertly trained staff and advanced machinery.
Coincidentally, those are also the two main factors to consider when looking
for a trusted engineering company. While modern technology, machinery and
computer aided design software have pushed fabrication services to the next
level, there is no substitute for experience.
Over the years advances
in technology and engineering have accounted for many innovations within the
defence sector. Last week we looked at naval vessels and today, we focus on the
Challenger 2 MK2 Black Night Battle Tanks.
The original Challenger
2 served with distinction in Bosnia, Kosovo and Iraq and now, the Ministry of
Defence (MoD) has extended its service to 2035. BAE Systems have introduced the
first working prototype of the Black Night upgrade to the UK’s main battle
tank, Challenger 2. It features a state-of-the-art thermal imaging system and
many improved defensive systems capable of challenging anything standing in its
successful engineering company with high quality fabrication services requires
knowledge, experience and continuous investment in the latest machinery. Investment
in equipment and staff should be extremely high on anyone’s priority list.
Quality and customer service excellence are two of the most important factors and
in order to provide that, equipment and staff must be of the highest level.
