Metal fabricating requires various practitioners in a range of roles, carrying out different tasks. Each person contributes in their own way to the production of the final product.

Blacksmiths: Currently, many people don’t use that name to describe them. However, they are some of the key role players in the metal fabricating industry today. For any product to be considered complete, it must have passed through the hands of a blacksmith. The blacksmith moulds a draft of the final product from raw materials. They then pass it to the next person in the production line.


Welders: This is the person who unites pieces of metal together to get the desired item. The decision on where to fix each piece of metal, the size, shape and type of weld utilized is a complicated one.  Some of the factors that this decision depends on are specific to the product desired. The end product of this step is called a weldment.


Ironworkers: Metal fabricating cannot end without these people. They are also referred to as steel erectors. Fabricating process starts as prefabricated segments which are then moved to the expected sites by rail, barge or trucks. Ironworkers install these components in relevant locations.
