Steel fabrications are the creation of a metal structure, made by bending, cutting, and assembling. It is used to create machines, parts, tools, and structures form many different materials.

There are many different types of steel fabrications such as:

Cutting

Folding

Machining

Welding

Stamping

Casting

Punching

Shearing

 

Steel fabrications are used to fabricate something from raw materials or something that is semi-finished, it is a process that is made rather than something that is assembled from ready-made parts.

 

The difference between welding and steel fabrication is the process. With welding you join pieces of metal, plastic, or glass, they must have a similar melting point and composition, they are fused by welding. Fabrication is a process that creates a metal product from scratch.

 

Four types of steel can be fabricated:

Carbon

Alloy

Stainless steel

Carbon

 

The most used metal in the world for steel fabrications is Steel. It has over 3500 different grades and almost 2 billion tons of steel that is manufactured globally every single year.

 

The hardest steel in terms of tensile strength is tungsten, this is the strongest out of all of the natural metals, however, its impact strength is weak, it is a brittle metal that is well known to shatter on impact.
