Types of Metal Fabrication
Cutting – a common type of fabrication that involves cutting a metal workpiece to separate it into smaller sections. We can achieve this through a number of processes including; sawing, laser cutting, waterjet cutting, power scissors, and plasma art cutting.
Casting – The act of pouring molten metal into a mold or die, when cooled the metal hardens into the desired shape. Ideal for mass-production of parts and it involves the reuse of mold/die to recreate identical products. Types of casting include; Die casting, Permanent mold casting, semi-permanent mold casting, sand casting.
Drawing – The use of tensile force to pull metal through a tapered die, stretches the metal into a thinner shape. Types of drawing we can facilitate; cold drawing, deep drawing.
Folding – Manipulation of metal using a brake press that creases the metal by pinching it. Held between a punch and die impacting pressure on the metal causing it to fold. Typically used with sheet metal.
Forging – The application of force to shape metal. Using a hammer or die, applying striking force on the metal workpiece until the desired shape is achieved. We use a number of techniques, involving cold forging and hot forging.
Welding – two or more pieces of metal becoming joined. This is achieved through a combination of heat and pressure. A popular process as metal can be any shape or size. Types of Welding include; Stick Welding, MIG Welding, TIG Welding, Flux Cored Arc Welding.
Machining – This refers to the process of shaping metal but removing unwanted material. Achieved in a variety of ways including; drilling, turning, and, and milling.
Punching – Turrets on a punch press hut through the metal into a die creating holes.
These are to name just a few types of metal fabrication techniques, allowing for the composition of new products, with the expert machinery and tooling technology we facilitate at Mulhouse we are able to collaborate in the design and manufacturing of new end products, ranging from garden tools and industrial equipment to the production of a specific part to custom housing interiors, any question and queries please get in contact.
