Structural steel fabrication is a process of bending, cutting, and moulding steel structures to create beams, columns, and steel members. Structural steel fabricators erect and provide quality, fabricated steel components and structures. Structural steel is cost effective, durable, and highly stable for construction.

Structural steel fabricators closely work with designers, architects, shop workers, project managers, detailers, equipment operators, inspectors, and engineers to create steel structures for building reliable structures. Our metal fabricators at Northern Weldarc fabricate structural steel components for various construction projects. We use advanced fabrication tools and equipment to create structures that comply with the equivalent standard requirement of different acceptable load dimensions along with the shape and size of structural steel required by code.

Fabricators usually prepare various structural steel components within their workshops; this saves transportation time and reduces the overall construction cost. Our professional fabricators can easily fabricate columns, trusses, beams, industrial stairs, mezzanines, access platforms, handrails, etc.

Metal Fabrication

Steel is preferred by many engineers, designers, and contractors because of its numerous benefits. The fact that it is recyclable, cost-effective and reusable makes it desirable for many construction operations. Many operations involved in construction processes require structural steel beams, ladders, and trusses. Steel fabrication is used for the fabrication of beams, ladders, and trusses. These structural element and tools hold a great significance in accomplishing significant and minor construction projects.

A structural steel beam is used to erect structures that people depend on every day. There are three types of structural steel beams, namely I-beam, H-beam and T-beam. Fabrication of structural steel beams may seem simple but requires a lot of research, experience and different competencies. Fabricators must be able to interpret blueprints and engineering drawings, utilize modern techniques and computer-aided software that is used for the fabrication of steel beams. Also, the fabricators must have a good idea of which type of steel will be suitable for the purpose steel beams are supposed to serve. Having sufficient knowledge and experience ensures that the beams are built with utmost precision and accuracy and makes a job far more manageable. Fabrication of the steel beam is not only dependent upon the purpose but also the region. Many other factors need to be considered while producing them. Furthermore, different compliance methods are outlined for a particular area and to ensure the safety of the structure being built. This makes it very important for a fabricator to be thoroughly familiar with the relevant standards of compliance right from fabricating to assembling.

Apart from considering the height and strength of steel ladders, many aspects are considered during its fabrication. Type and finish of ladder, dimensions, treads on the steps, guards, and handrails, accessories and installation are essential points that need to be considered. Once a fabricator has a clear idea of the type, dimensions, and other important information, the fabrication process starts. The structure of a steel ladder is design in a computer-aided designing software such as CAD and CAM as per the specifications. With the help of such software, steel fabricators create a 3D prototype of a ladder. The next stage is fabrication where steel ladders are built according to the design with the help of right fabrication tools and fabrication techniques. After a ladder is fabricated, it undergoes finishing and assembling to ensure a ladder works appropriately.
