Questions to Ask about Aluminum Fabrication

Aluminum fabrication may involve any number of separate processes in the manufacture of aluminum parts and products. A list of the services provided by a typical aluminum fabricator may include part forming, bending, welding, precision sawing, hardware installation and other machining processes. There are fabricators that serve both the consumer and industrial markets. Here are a few questions to ask an aluminum fabricator to improve the odds of a successful project.

  • What does your company do?
    Fabrication is an umbrella term that covers several types of work. Find out what type of metals the company will fabricate, and what type of machining work they do. Ask if they work with tubing, with wire, with sheet metal, or whatever service you need.

  • Do you supply the stock raw aluminum?
    Ask if the company has aluminum to fabricate or if the raw materials will have to be ordered.

  • What is your lead time?
    Different manufacturing work may require longer to accomplish, especially if you need a custom size for your aluminum sheet metal, tubing or other product. Find out in advance how long the job will take.

  • Do you have a minimum order?
    Some fabrication companies only supply large orders to major manufacturing companies, and may not take on an individual project.

  • What are your payment terms?
    Ask what percentage of the total price will be required up front, and when the balance is due.

  • What type of warranty do you provide?
    Ask if their work is guaranteed to meet your specifications. Also ask if they have a return policy.

    Positions in the aluminum fabrication industry vary greatly and the job availability is increasing. The primary positions in the aluminum fabrication industry center on being a welder, fabricator, metallurgist, engineer, or a machinery operator. The focus of these particular jobs is on being the best at metal fabricating, which applies to the building of machines, structures, and other equipment, by cutting, shaping, and assembling components made from raw materials. Without proper fabricating, sheets of metal simply cannot be produced or assembled as efficiently.

    All of the jobs mentioned are of great importance to the aluminum fabrication industry, as they serve to refine raw materials. Refining is the process of removing impurities from the metals and is known as the process of purification of a substance or form. Refining also applies to steel, an alloy of iron with small amounts of carbon. Similar to this process, employees in their respective fields also have to form the process of extracting metals by heat, which is referred to as smelting. It is also essential to point out that a laser will be evident in nearly every job. In the aluminum fabrication industry, a laser provides the proper light amplification that produces an intense monochromatic beam of coherent light to cut sheets.

    Being a welder in the aluminum fabrication industry may be the particular job that is the most important as they join pieces of metal together to create a custom finish. They must follow a precise design to extrude aluminum or steel, as they are surrounded by a wall which helps fortify the final result.
