How modern steel processing technologies help us

The steel processing industry is transitioning into a new and exciting phase through modern machinery and emerging technologies.

While traditional methods will always remain at the foundation of metal processing, new advancements have revolutionised the industry by:

  • Reducing project inefficiencies
  • Reducing supply chain concerns
  • Reducing steel wastage
  • Reducing overall costs

Through investing in new technology and machinery, a select number of structural steel companies in Australia, and around the world, have now positioned themselves as industry leaders and innovators in the steel processing industry.

The intersection between technology and reality

New machinery allows industry innovators to tackle jobs with greater efficiency and reduced labour, and this is made possible through the intersection between technology and material-reality.

Modern steel processing machinery works seamlessly with advanced drafting and imaging technologies.

Essentially, information and data can be read by the new machinery and translated into reality with reduced inefficiencies and increased precision.

Simplifying the supply chain

At BridgeFab we oversee projects from planning, drafting, fabrication and erection. The entire supply chain is simplified by our team organising the steel process as a whole. This makes it easier for our clients.

Reduced labour, reduced costs and competitive prices

While this unprecedented technology and machinery is a large investment for a steel processing company, it often means reduced costs and labour for our clients.

By reducing labour, human error and streamlining the supply chain process, and advanced metal processing company can provide a quote that is competitive, if not unbeatable.

The bottom line? It’s well worth your time and money to seek the services of an advanced steel processing company, or at the very least, get a quote.

Steel processing involves cutting, forming, joining, machining, heat treatment, surface treatment, precision machining, and inspection to transform raw steel materials into usable products or components for various industries.

Steel processing is important because it allows for customisation, enhances mechanical properties, enables joining and assembly, provides surface protection, ensures precision and accuracy, assures quality, and offers versatility in creating steel products for various industries.

Shot blasting is a surface preparation process that involves propelling abrasive materials at high velocity onto a surface to remove contaminants and prepare them for further processing or coating. It is commonly used in industries such as automotive, aerospace, construction, shipbuilding, and metal fabrication.
