When you are looking for metal fabrication services, you will want to make sure that the company you employ has the skills, experience and customer service capabilities to follow through on your request and provide a great service.
What Is Involved in Metal Fabrication?
“Metal fabrication” encompasses a wide range of techniques and processes, from casting, pressing, machining and welding to forging and CNC cutting, but the results are always the same – an item or component is made from metal, meeting a customer’s requirements.
This is where Special Metals UK stands out from the crowd – our facilities and expertise are unmatched, but our ability to work specialist metals like molybdenum, tantalum, tungsten, zirconium, niobium and titanium sets us apart from other fabricators, which may not have the skills or specialist equipment to reliably work these rare, special metals.
What to Look for in a Metal Fabrications Company
Metal fabrication companies vary in quality, from industry leading companies like Special Metals to companies which may not be able to provide the quality and consistency which you require.
Here’s what to look out for in a metal fabrication company to make sure you’re getting the quality you need:
A Proven Track Record
The first thing you should look for in a metal fabricator is a track record of success: testimonials, former customers and the ability to demonstrate a history of excellence are great votes in favour of the company. At Special Metals Fabrication, we can provide demonstrations of our past successes and testament to our capabilities, so you know what your fabricator can provide before placing your order. Just talk to us on 01268 820409 to discuss our proven track record of excellence; our head office team will be happy to help you.
A metal fabricator with years of experience is a more reliable partner in fabrication than a novice company. Special Metals UK has years of experience at the forefront of the UK metals fabrication industry, and has been working with exceptional metals like titanium, niobium and tantalum for that time; making us the UK’s foremost metals fabricators.
Our expert team has a wealth of experience and knowledge to fall back on, and has a breadth of varied skills and expertise – but we aren’t satisfied to rest on our laurels. The fabrication team at Special Metals UK is always pushing the boundaries, making sure that we remain at the cutting edge of specialist metals fabrication with constantly-evolving techniques and standards to keep up with industry best practice.
High-Quality Customer Service
A metals fabrication company that won’t provide good customer service likely won’t provide a good product, so don’t be afraid to ask your fabricator what they can do for their customers and what support they offer.
This is another field where Special Metals can excel, as our customer service is a point of pride for us as a company – we always strive to provide the best quality service to our clients, and provide same day quotations if you need a quick turnaround and prompt service.
A great metal fabrication company will invest in cutting-edge equipment to ensure the best possible standards for their customers. Outdated machinery and facilities means a less-than-optimal service potential, but a fabricator like Special Metals Fabrication will invest continuously in improving their facilities, making sure that they can provide industry-leading services, regardless of your requirements.
Value Added Services
Value added services can be a double-edged sword in metal fabrication. Where fabricators outsource some specialist services, like special metals welding, an additional link in the chain is introduced, increasing customer waiting time and potentially decreasing quality – so in Special Metals UK, we make sure to provide all our value added services like welding and machining in-house, where the quality can be assured. We also offer next day delivery on stock parts and next day delivery on machined parts, so our clients can always get the components they need, when they need them!
Metal Fabrication UK Accreditation and Quality Assurance
If you are considering a metal fabrication company, make sure that they are certified to the standard you require – Special Metals UK holds an ISO9001-2008 accreditation, which asserts our commitment to quality and standards across the board. If you would like to download a copy of our ISO accreditation, you can do so from our website – or contact us to discuss our credentials in more detail.
