Metal fabricationi s the building of metal structures by cutting, bending, and assembling processes.
It is a value added process that involves the creation of machines, parts, and structures from various raw materials. Metal fabrication jobs usually start with shop drawings including precise measurements, then move to the fabrication stage and finally to the installation of the final project.
