What is metal fabrication?

Metal fabrication is the art of modifying, molding, twisting, and boring crude material. One example would be transforming sheet metal and plates into the frames of basic pieces. Fabrication can be done by hand, but now we have many advanced computerized methods to complete even the most custom pieces with precision accuracy.

A metal fabricator must first comprehend the initial segment of the procedure, the outline. After that, the pieces are sliced to the best possible size utilizing systems that could incorporate a round observed, fire or plasma cutting.

If there are multiple parts that need to be secured together, openings are bored or punched into the steel for jolts to be presented later on. Depending on the piece, different capacities might be used, such as the roller or segment twisting machine makes bends in the steel or press breaking. This applies pressure on the full distance across of the bits of steel.

Most shapes are then covered with an uncommon paint that is resistant to disintegration and fire. Finally, the parts are ready to be welded and packaged to be shipped off to different destinations.

What's the thickest material that you can cut on your flat sheet laser?

Lee Metal Fabrication has two ENSIS Series Fiber Lasers. AMADA's 3kW ENSIS fiber laser technology utilizes a highly innovative resonator to automatically and precisely adjust the diameter of the laser beam. This unique feature enables continuous processing of thin-to-thick materials by a single machine with no lens change or additional setup required.

  • Mild Steel .032'' to 3/4''
  • Stainless Steel .032 to 1/2''
  • Aluminum .032 to 3/8''
  • Maximum Sheet Size 5' x 10'
  • Accuracy 0.0004''/20''
