Aluminium Fabrication And Specialist Finishing

aluminium fabrication

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.

Using Powder Coating For The Perfect Finish

powder coating

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.

Aluminium Fabrication And Finishing

aluminium fabrication

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 even showers.

Structural Steel Fabrication At PRV Engineering

Structural 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.

The structural 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: Surface Preparation and Specialist Coatings

shot blasting

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.
