If you’re in need of a metal part, it’s important to ask – will a standard ‘off-the-shelf’ product do the job or do you require the help of a metal fabrication company? Yes, standard parts tend to be cheaper. But in most cases, it’s worth investing the extra money and using a specialist fabrication service – such as that available at Special Metals. Here we take a look at the main reasons why.
5 reasons to invest in a metal fabrication company
100% bespoke parts
This is the main advantage of using a metal fabrication company. There’s no need to compromise or make the most of a component that isn’t quite right for your needs. You’re in control and you’re free to make your ‘ideal’ product. Simply supply the experts with your exact specifications and they will create a part that is 100% bespoke and tailored to your individual needs.
Metal fabrication companies usually have a number of raw materials for you to choose from. For example, here at Special Metals, our metal parts can be made from a range of refractory metals – including Molybdenum, Tantalum, Titanium, Niobium, Zirconium, and Tungsten – and you’re free to select the one most suited to your needs. We also offer customers a choice of finishing touches.
Each step of the metal fabrication process is completed in-house. Special Metals is lucky enough to have a fantastic multi-disciplinary team – who are capable of all specialist techniques (e.g. cutting, welding, assembling) and can take care of the entire fabrication process from start-to-finish.
This removes the need to outsource particular aspects of the job. Our customer waiting times can be kept to a minimum and we’re able to closely monitor the quality of parts as they leave our site.
A good metal fabrication company will have significant experience in fabrication. Collectively, our team have worked in this industry for more than 120 years – and, as such, we can make any metal part (standard or non-standard) from any the refractory metals mentioned above.
Just tell us what you need (however weird and wonderful that might be) and, by applying our knowledge and experience, we will produce your desired product – quickly and professionally.
Metal fabrication companies have access to cutting-edging technology and machinery, allowing them to offer customers the best possible metal fabrication service. This is one of our top priorities as industry-leaders. Our ultimate goal is to create the highest quality metal parts – and, to do so, we continuously invest in the latest facilities for our production site.
