What Is Fabrication?

Fabrication is the process of creating, building, or constructing a product through techniques like cutting, shaping, and assembling raw materials. It involves transforming those materials into finished products or structures, often following a specific design or set of specifications.

There are different types of fabrication including mechanical, insulation, and industrial fabrication. Experienced fabrication professionals, such as Crossroads C&I, utilize a range of cutting-edge tools, machinery, and techniques to produce items with precision so the final product meets the intended purpose or design requirements.

What Materials Are Used For Fabrication?

Materials for fabrication will vary greatly based on the intended application. For industrial fabrication, some examples of materials that are used include metals like steel, aluminum, and stainless steel, plastics, such as acrylic or PVC, and composites, which are materials like fiberglass or carbon fiber with resins, for a durable product with reduced weight.

For insulation fabrication, materials that are commonly used include mineral wool, polyisocyanurate, and other materials that are chosen for their thermal, acoustic, and fire protection performance capabilities.

How Does Custom Fabrication Work?

Custom fabrication involves tailoring products to specific design requirements. The first step for custom fabrication usually begins with detailed specifications or drawings provided by the client.

Next, skilled fabricators use those specs along with techniques, such as cutting, welding, and shaping, to transform raw materials into the designed custom product.

Clear communication between clients and fabricators is key for a successful fabrication process. This allows for adjustments and refinements so the customer ends up with exactly what they need for the project.
