Metal fabrication is the creation of metal structures by bending, cutting and re-assembling pieces of structural steel or sheet metal. Bespoke machines are used for each unique process including; shears, lathes, guillotines, folders and benders, sheet metal machines and rolls and punches.
The fabrication process usually starts with measurements and drawings being taken. These then get used to precisely form the required structure and the process will finish with installation. Some examples of projects are; gates and railings, stairs and steps, ornamental/architectural metal, furniture, metal tools, metal containers, boilers and generators, steam or vapour generators, structural frames for buildings and products for use in buildings e.g.; shutters, metal window frames and doors.

Arc Alloys take on a virtually unlimited range of fabrication jobs, ensuring they produce top of the range products with meticulous accuracy.
Metal Fabrication Process
Pieces of metal are cut to size using cutting, bending and burning processes. The parts are then assembled together by welding and binding with adhesives, riveting and threaded fasteners. The metal will be formed into its desired shape and machined to remove any unwanted material from the structure.
After the object has been welded and cooled, it will generally be sand blasted, primed and painted. Next any individualisation required by the customer is then completed. A thorough safety check is undertaken before shipping and installation.
