The manufacturing industry has evolved into a large state that a lot of different services, processes, and companies have been born. Fabrication, or the process of creating, assembling, and producing a product from different working assemblies to a piece of equipment or a semi-finished part.
But do you actually know what fabrication is? Are you aware of what it does, how it’s done, what processes and methodologies are involved?
What is Fabrication?
Fabrication can be anywhere from producing a wide range of products like formed sheet metals, plain sheet metals, to different parts of cars, aerospace parts and components, and many more. Fabrication involves the process of constructing products by fusing or combining different and standardized parts.
Many people confuse fabrication and manufacturing – thinking that they’re both the same. Though most of the time, they have the same goal (and that is to produce), they’re different – so how do you distinguish the one from the other?
What is Manufacturing?
Manufacturing is defined to be the process of releasing, producing, or procuring goods and other materials, components, parts, and equipment. It is known as the process of converting raw materials and parts to a finished or semi-finished product.
More often than not, manufacturing is done in a large scale where 100 production units are considered few. Whether you need manufacturing or fabrication – you can count on us here at Kentucky Contract Manufacturing Technicians to help you with any of it!
Fabrication vs. Manufacturing
So are you now aware of how the two processes are different? Do you already know how you would distinguish them? To make it simpler for you fabrication is the process where something is formed through combining different raw materials, components, and parts.
Manufacturing is the creation of those raw materials from scratch. To give you a more concrete and clearer example, let’s say that an automotive company is looking to create the body of a certain car and they need quite a few of them.
The automotive company would need to import parts from a European “manufacturer” for the sheet metals and some of the glass needs it has. Then, you contact a “fabrication company” to help you in the combining and the fusing of the semi-finished parts, as well as those that are finished to finish 70% of the car’s exterior.
The fabrication process that we have here at Kentucky Contract Manufacturing Technicians is actually simple. As a matter of fact, it involves a lot of different processes but is pointing and coming from the same roots and have the same goal.
Metal fabricators start by bidding on certain jobs by submitting the draft, drawings, as well as the processes that they’re going to do to produce the output you need – everything starts from there. But we are considered as the best not because we’re always chosen and picked by clients, but because of the versatility of our skills and expertise.
When we’re chosen, we then proceed to the following steps for the fabrication process to take place:
- Material Choosing – the material that is to be used in the process is selected and is deliberated.
- Decision of Services – we will check and distinguish whether or not we’ll be completing the work ourselves or we’re going to tap other manufacturers with some of the parts and components.
- Fabrication Processes – when finished, we then move forward to different procedures like cutting, casting, forming, press brake bending, even finishing and assembly.
- Products and Outputs Inspection – every product that comes out of our types of machinery are checked and are inspected to ensure that they’re at their best and their highest quality.
