What is fabrication and what processes does it involve?

Fabrication is the action of manipulating semi-finished or raw materials to create something (most commonly machines and structures). Essentially, it is the process of making something from scratch rather than assembling it from ready-made parts/components.

Fabrication is an essential part of the manufacturing process, and although they can work independently, they are also interconnected. Fabrication is a very hands-on part of the manufacturing process.

Metal fabrication specifically, is one of the most important aspects of modern day to day life. Every time you get in your car or pick up your phone, you are interacting with the result of custom metal fabrication. It involves working with sheet metal which, at this stage, is pliable enough to assume different shapes. This is done by highly skilled and qualified metal fabricators, through cutting, stamping, shaping, folding, and welding. Each job will require different parts and processes.

Metal fabrication usually starts with the need for something, which involves a piece of metal suited for a particular task. This part is then designed, prototyped (a common but not entirely necessary step in every project), fabricated and assembled.
