Steel fabrication

Fabrication applies to the building of structures by cutting, shaping and assembling components made from steel. Steel fabrication shops generally concentrate on the preparation, welding and assembly aspect with a much greater use of the multi functioning machines.

Fabrication (cutting and drilling features) of structural steel elements has always been performed using manually operated techniques, and these remain today as fabrication methods. The emergence of CNCoperation of a machine tool with a computer controlling the manufacturing process

During the computer numerical control manufacturing process, a machine tool or machining center drills, cuts, or shapes the piece of material.

The terms numerical control and NC refer to the method used prior to computer numerical control. However, the abbreviation NC is often used in the term NC file.
