Stages in the Fabrication Process
Stages included in the fabrication process include the following; CNC cutting (turret punch / laser / water-jet / plasma), machining (milling / turning), guillotine, sawing, pressing and MIG / TIG welding (including Aluminium). These stages are then often followed by a number of finishing processes for example; Zinc plating, powder coating, anodising wet spraying and galvanizing.
From the concept stage through to CAD, procurement and the actual fabrication we apply our extensive skills to ensure a value for money result is delivered.
Our approach is to choose the right process and not necessarily be restricted by what we deliver in-house. If we know of a better process available through one of our supplier networks, that is the one we will recommend.
Our consideration will be for ongoing value not just the cheapest way for us to do our bit. Consideration for product use and maintenance is high, giving you a life time value option not just the lowest cost today.
Whilst convincing buyers “cheapest isn’t always best” is no easy task, we strive to convince them to look a bit deeper into what they are actually buying.
In the immortal words of philosopher, John Ruskin:
“It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money – that’s all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot – it can’t be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.”
