The Steel Fabrication Process
Steel can be fabricated in many ways. Taking advantage of its flexibility, strength, weight, and ability to be incorporated into a variety of designs, when it comes to the fabrication process the application of steel is nearly limitless. Steel can be taken from its raw stock form, depending on the type and grade, or it can be hot or cold rolled into sheets, which in turn are used in sheet metal fabrication. Steel is also tempered in different ways to improve its qualities as needed, with hardness and flexibility being the most affected.
The fabrication process APSM Systems can be tailored to create a completely custom steel sheet metal product, but below are some of the most commonly used methods of turning your design into a prototype or mid to high-volume producedfinished product.
Custom Steel Product Design and Fabrication Methods
Cutting/burning: From lasers to plasma cutting torches, heat can cut, warp, shape, and further temper steel.
Forming: Through intense pressure, steel can be rolled into just about any desired shape without compromising its structural integrity.
Machining: Steel can be machined with dies, lathes, presses, drills, acid etching, grinding, or other methods.
Welding: Fusing steel to steel or other metals is an ancient invention, taking two pieces of metal and fusing them together with intense heat, bonding them at the molecular level permanently. Today, it can be done with such precision, from arc welding to plasma welding, that it has become crucial to fabrication.
Final assembly: Once your component is built, it will be tested for strength, functionality, and precision by our highly trained and dedicated staff.
