Previously there were many things which were manually created. The weapons for the war, shields and other metal products were manually created. But today with the improvement in technology we have machines to do everything. Minute metal products can get easily designed with the fabrication process. These machines make it very easy for us to design and manufacture many products. The entire process of manufacturing is done by industrial tools. We live in a world where fabrication is one of the best things that make our life easier. There are many fab shops which do the metal fabrication. The metal fabrication is the process of structuring metals into various machines and other structures. The structuring of metals is done by bending, cutting, welding, formatting and assembling the various parts to form a hard product.
Many metal tools are made by the fab shops using the fabrication process. To make these tools, you need to certain tools to make the manufacturing process possible.
The following are some of the tools which are used in the fabrication process:
- Oxy-gas torches.
- Magnetic grills.
- A throat-less sheer.
- Various angle grinder discs.
- A set of Cleco fasteners.
- Cutting glasses.
- Press Brake and Cambering Machine.
The Oxy-gas torches are used mostly for welding purposes or to cut the steal. The torches use acetylene, gasoline, propylene, and hydrogen. These gas torches are mostly used for the small-scale fabrication process.
The Magnetic grills are used to drill the structural objects. Magnetic drills make a hole in the metal and are used to drill metal pieces which cannot be moved or lifted. A magnetic grill has a mag base, magnetic driller, and magnetic broach machine cutter.
A throat-less sheer:
The throat less sheer is used to cut the irregular metal pieces in a straight or a curved piece of metal. It has a tall handle and three holes for mounting. The tall handle makes it easy for you to cut the metal pieces. A throat less sheet is a tool which you can find in almost all fab shops.
Various angle grinder discs:
The angle grinder discs have grinding wheels which are either super abrasives or conventional abrasives.
A set of Cleco fasteners:
These Cleco fasteners are used to fasten multiple sheets of metal before they are joined together permanently.
Metal cutting can get quite dangerous and since the fabrication process has a lot of metal cutting work to do you can use a gutting glass to protect yourself from any accidents which could be caused.
Press Brake and Cambering Machine:
The press brake machine clamps the steel sheet between a matching punch and dies pair to bend the sheets of steel. The press brake is used to convert the sheets of steel into girders, sections, and angles.
The cambering Machine is also used to change the structure of the steal. But the cambering machine converts the steel into vertical or horizontal arcs instead of bending the steel sheets.
