Aluminium fabrication can be described as the process of shaping different aluminium parts into a finished product. Several industries rely heavily on aluminium fabrication but none more so than building metal structures.
In this article, we will briefly cover elements of both – the aluminium fabrication process and specialist finishing.
We define powder coating as the process of applying a
powder material to the surface using an electrostatic or compressed air method.
It’s also one of the most advanced techniques for applying a protective and
decorative finish to nearly any type of metal.
More companies are turning to powder coating as it
produces a dry, clean and highly durable finish, without using volatile organic
compounds. Overall, it is more economical as it saves customers time, effort
and money in the long run.
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
steel fabrication involves a complex process of turning steel into fabricated
products for a construction project or other industrial applications. Structural
steel has been a first choice in all types of construction and for quite some
time. Even the smallest project incorporates steel because it offers faster
construction among many other benefits.
steel fabrication and welding process is demanding and you should only consult experienced
fabricators. A less experienced company may not be able to properly perform the
tasks at hand which means they could compromise the product viability. Welding
and fabricating structural steel requires special expertise that only a few
companies share, PRV Engineering is right up there.
Shot blasting is used to clean, polish or strengthen metal preparing it for the application of overlays or specialist coatings. It is a technological process used to remove various impurities from different surfaces using abrasives. This includes removing rust or old layers of paint to prepare surfaces for further processing like painting, welding or powder coating. Many industries working with metal use shot blasting, including aerospace, automotive, construction, shipbuilding, rail among many others.
