Basic Metal & Fabricated Metal Products

Basic Metal & Fabricated Metal Products Industry

Basic metal production encompasses the activities of smelting or refining ferrous and precious as well as other non-ferrous metals from ore or scrap, using metallurgic techniques. It also comprises the production of metal alloys and super-alloys by adding certain chemical elements to pure metals.

Fabricated metal products are metal parts that are combined, shaped or otherwise processed to create a useful product. Fabrication is a blanket term for many metalworking processes; these include rolling, punching, stamping, sintering, welding, machining and many others. Fabrication is a secondary metalworking process.

The manufacture of basic metals and fabricated metal products consists of two main groups of activity – metallurgy (ferrous and non-ferrous) and the casting of metals. The industry as a whole is geographically concentrated. This applies particularly to ferrous metallurgy (Moravia-Silesia region).

Until recently the development in the industry had been influenced by a robust demand on the part of the car industry, mechanical engineering and construction. Employers  therefore faced difficulties related to insufficient generational replacement of human resources. There has been a slump in interest in studying the relevant disciplines, and even in the ongoing period of economic crisis occupations such as casters and founders remain to be in short supply.

FAQ

Fabricated metal products are metal parts that are combined, shaped or otherwise processed to create a useful product. Fabrication is a blanket term for many metalworking processes; these include rolling, punching, stamping, sintering, welding, machining and many others. Fabrication is a secondary metalworking process.
Basic metal production encompasses the activities of smelting or refining ferrous and precious as well as other non-ferrous metals from ore or scrap, using metallurgic techniques. It also comprises the production of metal alloys and super-alloys by adding certain chemical elements to pure metals.

Some examples of products made with metal fabrication include: Hand toolsBolts, nuts, and screwsCans.

Simply put, Metal fabrication is a manufacturing process used to shape metal into parts or end products. CAMM Metals uses a wide variety of techniques to shape sheet metal into a part or good. Many metal fabricators use sheet metal, which can be up to . 25 inches thick.

There are three main types of metals ferrous metals, non ferrous metals and alloys. Ferrous metals are metals that consist mostly of iron and small amounts of other elements. Ferrous metals are prone to rusting if exposed to moisture.
