As regular readers of our blog will know, we often talk about steel fabrication and with this in mind; we thought we’d take a closer look at what it means.
Steel fabrication is simply the process which is used to manufacture separate steel components which, once they have been assembled and joined together, form a complete steel frame. Steel frames can be made from either standard sized steel sections, or if standard section sizes aren’t appropriate, fabricated sections can be manufactured to order.
The way in which steel sections are fabricated has changed a great deal over the years and whereas once a tape measure would be used, the majority of steel section manufacturers now use computer aided design and detailing. Computer aided design (CAD) is software which is used to design each section and is linked directly to CAD controlled machinery on the factory floor. Not only does the use of CAD dramatically increase the speed of manufacture, it also offers huge benefits in terms of accuracy and quality.
