Steel fabrication companies nowadays are not just focused on steel fabrication and customized projects. There are lots of steel fabrication businesses that focused on special processes and for this article I will show you some of their special processes!
There are companies who are specialized in casting. It is a manufacturing process in which a liquid material is usually poured into a mold, which has a hollow cavity of the desired shape and then for some time will be solidify. The part that is solidified is also known as casting. Casting materials are usually metals or various cold setting materials that cure after mixing two or more components together. It is used most often for making complex shapes that would be otherwise difficult to produce by other methods.
It is a process used to create objects with a fixed cross-sectional profile. A material is pushed through a die of the intended cross-section. There are two main advantages of extrusion. First is its ability to create a very complex cross-sections and the second is to work materials that are brittle, because the material only encounters shear and comprehensive stresses. Extrusion can also form parts with an excellent surface finish.
It is a manufacturing process about metal shaping with the use of localized comprehensive forces. Using a hammer, the blows are delivered to the metal. It is often classified according to the temperature at which it was performed. The classifications are as follows; hot forging, warm forging and cold forging. For hot and warm forging, the metal is heated in a forge.
The parts of the forge can be ranged in weight from less than a kilogram to hundreds of metric tons. Some of the most commonly known products from this process are kitchenware, edged weapons, hardware, hand tools, and jewelry.
Powder coating is a type of coating which is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. What it differs from the conventional liquid pain and a powder coating is that it does not require any solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form.
Typically the coating is applied electrostatically and then under the heat was cured to allow it to flow and form a skin. The powder is a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer, which is usually used to create a hard finish which is tougher than the conventional paint.
Powder coating is used for coating of metals, like in household appliances, extrusions and automobile.
It is a fabrication process that joins materials, usually metals or thermoplastics, by causing fusion, which is distinct from lower temperature metal-joining techniques such as brazing and soldering which do not melt the base metal.
It is the most economical and efficient way to join metals permanently.
This is just one of the many things a steel fabrication can be specialized with. Be sure that if you need a steel fabrication project, you are to deal with a specialized company.
