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.
Metal fabrication services play a major role in the manufacturing industries sector especially when it comes to producing material handling equipment. Material handling forms one of the most important aspects of manufacturing industries and is used in a number of sectors from steel and mining industries to cement and construction industries. To manufacture this kind of equipment metal fabrication services are used resulting in the production of various types of material handling equipment such as positioning equipment, and loading equipment. Among the various material handling equipment used today in industries, conveyor systems are perhaps the most important. In this article we will take a look at some of the most important types of sorting conveyor systems being produced by metal fabrication services. Continue reading →
