-- Metal fabrication Bradford is a trade that requires professional steel fabricators Bradford and specific tools and metal fabrication techniques. To be able to create metal structures by cutting, shaping and assembling pieces of metal, one needs to have the right education and skills.
It is recommended that a steel fabricator holds a degree in metal fabrication and also the necessary skills that can help them transform a drawing on a piece of paper into something solid and durable like a fire escape, bed head, automated gate, fence, or other product made from mild steel, stainless steel, aluminium or other alloy or metal.
During the process of metal fabrication Bradford, a number of tools are used. Among the most important ones, we can include chisels, CNC machines, press brakes, band saws, punches, and laser or water jet cutters. Steel fabricators know how to use these tools to obtain the desired metal section.
Steel fabricators Bradford are usually focused on working with metal and manufacturing metal structures, thus on using hardware to create products, but they can also be required to design metal structures, case in which they have to use computers and software programs developed especially for this kind of job.
On a computer, steel fabricators can see what a metal structure would actually look like, when completed, and be able to take the decision of manufacturing it, as seen on the computer, or modifying it, to match the exact requirements of their client. Specialised software programs can allow clients to see their product before the product is actually manufactured.
The first phase of metal fabrication, after designing a metal structure with the help of a software program, is the one of cutting the raw material used to create that particular metal structure. Cutting is usually performed with band saws, or with laser or water jet cutters and by human operators or robots.
The next phase is shaping the material by using press brakes or hammers. Some pieces of metal need to have rounded corners, be entirely plain, or present a wavy structure. They can be brought into the shape requested by their clients by using the right tool that applies force to the metal and changes its original shape.
Once the pieces of metal are cut and shaped as requested, they are joined through the process of welding. This represents the joining of two or more materials by melting the layer of the materials where they will be bonded and by adding a material that will solidify the liquid formed during welding.
