How We Operate
Professionalism and top quality products & services in Steel Fabrication Ireland is why we are trusted by our customers.
Steel fabrication is the process of building machines and structures from raw metal materials. The process includes cutting, burning, welding, machining, forming, and assembly to create the final product.
Steel fabrication projects include everything from hand railings to heavy equipment and machinery. Specific subsectors include cutlery and hand tools; architectural and structural metals; hardware manufacturing; spring and wire manufacturing; screw, nut, and bolt manufacturing; and forging and stamping.
The main benefit of metal fabrication shops is the centralisation of these many processes that are often required to be performed in parallel via a collection of vendors. A one-stop steel fabrication shop helps contractors limit their need to work with multiple vendors to complete complicated projects.
Welding is the main focus of steel fabrication. Formed and machined parts are assembled and tack-welded in place, then rechecked for accuracy. If multiple weldments have been ordered, a fixture may be used to locate parts for welding. A welder then finishes the work according to engineering drawings (for detailed welding) or by their own experience and judgement (if no details are provided).
Special measures may be needed to prevent or correct warping of weldments due to heat. These may include redesigning the piece to require less welding, employing staggered welding, using a stout fixture, covering the weldment in sand as it cools, and post-weld straightening.
Straightening of warped steel weldments is done with an oxyacetylene torch. In this highly specialized work, heat is selectively applied to the steel in a slow, linear sweep, causing the steel to contract in the direction of the sweep as it cools. A highly skilled welder can remove significant warpage this way.
Steel weldments are occasionally annealed in a low-temperature oven to relieve residual stresses. Such weldments, particularly those for engine blocks, may be line-bored after heat treatment.
