Fabrication is making something and welding is just one operation performed during that process. Fabrication involves design and layout, and proper cutting of components. Welding is the method (one of) in putting it all together.
After desiging the banner it should be placed on the specified area but before placed it. It needs a stand or we can say that metal frame to hold banner.
Fabrication is making something and welding is just one operation performed during that process.
Welding is basically joining two pieces of metal together: No design, layout, cutting, forming, or machining(yet another trade).
Welders and fabricators are separate trades where I live in BC but among experienced workers there is often a lot of overlap in skills: Welders do some fabrication and fabricators can weld.
Even with the skill overlap in experienced workers, I don’t generally trust welders to do complicated layout or forming work or fabricators to do difficult welds…at least not quickly.
What are fabrication and welding?
Fabrication and Welding both are two essential processes in the metal industry.
Fabrication is a long process of building metal structures by bending, cutting, welding and assembling them. Simply, fabrication is an act of turning raw material into some certain designed mechanical parts for later use in an assembly process.
WHAT ARE METAL FABRICATION PROCESSES?
The following are some common metal fabrication processes used in:
Welding is a process of joining metal materials with a technique called fusion. In simple words, in welding metals are joined by using heat and pressure. Welding has different processes and types.
What are the welding methods?
The following are some of well know welding methods:
Oxy-fuel Welding or oxyacetylene welding or oxy welding
Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) or stick welding or electric welding
Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) or TIG welding
Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) or MIG welding
Flux-cored Arc Welding (FCAW)
Submerged Arc Welding (SAW)
Electroslag Welding (ESW)
Electric Resistance Welding (ERW)
