Not all parts and components fabricated for use in all types of applications and industries need to be produced to tight tolerances and exacting standards. However, even though the requirement may not be there for precision parts, there is still a very compelling case to be made for the use of precision metal fabricating shops and services.
Why Precision Matters
The use of the term precision metal fabricating is directly related to the tolerances that can be achieved through the various processes used. Companies that market their services using the word precision have both state-of-the-art equipment as well as highly trained machinists and fabricators with the ability to work to tight tolerances for shapes and sizes in and within a part or component.
The results of choosing precision fabrication services include ease in installation of the parts and components into the final product, limiting of waste during fabrication, higher efficiency in fabrication as well as an adherence to quality control processes from design through to final finishing.
All of these factors combined can help to reduce the cost per unit for the part. At the same time, the quality of the part is enhanced, which is an important factor in industries such as automotive, appliances, HVAC parts and even in specialized types of applications such as electric bus bar production.
Full Scope of Services
The best precision metal fabricating services tend to offer a wider scope of services. They can often work with your in-house team for full design services, which can include concept through to production or enhancing a design to lower the cost of production and increase the life cycle of the part through minor design modifications.
Other companies may also offer secondary services such as assembly, which means the component is ready to install into the equipment, system or device, saving time and reducing overall production costs.
