Structural Steel Fabrication

Structural steel fabrication has been admired for its ability to create robust and sustainable structures due to its highly reliable material composition. Structural steel is high in demand and also a demanding process, the process of converting this material substance into equipment or structures that can be used in the construction of buildings or as a form of input in other industrial applications is referred to as Structural Steel Fabrication. When it comes to getting the most out of your structural steel, it is best to let the specialist handle it and hence contracting a company that can utilize structural steel up to its fullest potential is of the essence.

The hype created about structural steel is not without a reason as the substance is highly economical and is significantly less heavy as compared to its contenders. However, being light weight does not indicate, in any way, that the steel lacks durability or robustness. Structural steel Metal Fabrication is a process that makes use of light weight structural steel to create breathtaking complex structures that are strong and long lasting. Creating a structure via structural steel fabrication that can withhold any blows is difficult and hence the work should only be appointed to skilled, knowledgeable and specialized workers. 

The Entire Process in a Nutshell

General Outline:

After the contracts have been signed, the initial step taken is to understand the basic concept the client has in his mind. The “idea” or “ideal” structure is described on paper and discussed upon in depths with the client before the actual work starts.

Standard Layout/ Blueprint/Drawing Creation:

Based on the general outline provided a blueprint is created and edited or corrected as per the client’s demands. Once the blueprints have been approved they are moved to be created into “shop drawings” to take the order to the next step. The shop drawing will align with your project details and be held accounted for the budget and deadline that has been stated. 

Cutting/Shaping and Drilling:

Structural steel needs to be molded into a form that can be better used and utilized. Saws, shears, cutters, lasers, punches, notches, and plasma are used for the sake of this purpose. These tools are used to shape and drill the steel beams into a structural form that best aligns with the blueprint that has previously been created.

Component Assembly:

When the cutting and drilling process has been completed, the flow doesn’t stop there. Next up comes the process of assembling the shapes into a form a proper physical structure. Welding is done to assemble the pieces, the fabricators recheck to ensure optimum quality and accuracy is achieved.

Complete Assembly and Shipping:

This part is highly essential as the project comes to an end. Structured steel fabricators make sure that the end result is assembled fully or partially based on the terms of your contract, and is functioning flawlessly as well as being free from any faults. A total quality check is conducted again to ensure maximum accuracy has been achieved and the project (in terms of equipment or components) is prepared to be shipped to your destination.
