Steel fabrication is used in a range of industries.
Steel fabrication is used in many industries around the world and involves a combination of processes. Steel is known for its strength and durability, as well as its heat resistance and low maintenance. These characteristics make it a very popular material. Read on to find out about some of the most common steel fabrication applications, and how we can help with your project…
1. Architecture and construction
Structural steel is used widely in the building and construction industry. Because it is such a hardy and corrosion-resistant material, steel can be used in large construction projects, such as buildings and bridges. It can also be used in much smaller details for buildings and design elements. These include handrails and countertops, to name a few.
2. Transportation industry
Steel is used in many transportation-related products in sectors such as the automotive, rail, marine and aerospace industries. A wide variety of elements involve the use of steel, including cars, trains, handrails, piping and exhaust systems.
The steel fabrication process is also widely used in the shipbuilding industry. Some of the most-used steel products in this sector include steel flowing, grates, ladders, steel sheeting for hulls, conveyance tubing, platforms and stairs. Steel fabrication is also often used in the maintenance and repair of ships and other transportation-related products and vehicles.
3. Energy sector
Steel fabrication is also used widely in the energy industry. This includes oil and gas companies, nuclear plants, as well as wind and solar energy companies. Some of the essential metal products in these industries include oil and gas platforms and wells; the components for electricity power turbines; wind turbines; transformers; electromagnets; transmission towers and electromagnetic shields. While a range of materials may be involved in the fabrication of these products, steel fabrication is often a key process.
4. Mining industry
Steel plays a very important role in the mining industry. The mining process itself requires various tools and machinery, many of which are produced by means of steel fabrication. Some of this equipment includes trucks, loaders, shivers, and draglines, as well as rails, rods, pipes, fitting and grading.
How can we help?
At BridgeFab, we offer a range of steel fabrication services, including cutting, folding, bending, welding, punching and machining. We also do shearing, stamping, and casting. We are a family-owned business and have many years of experience in the industry. We have embraced advanced robotics and automation to deliver excellence in steel fabrication and erection, and are available to assist in projects of any size.
When it comes to taking on projects, we take care of the entire process — this includes drafting and detailing of the project site; 3d modelling of the project; processing and fabrication of steel; and erection by a trained team.
