If you have a design that you would like to make a reality, your local metal shop may be able to help more than you think. By welding, cutting, and forming metal to match your design, a local metal fabricator can create anything you can dream up. They can create a finished product for you in no time using aluminum, stainless steel, and carbon steel materials, allowing you to bring your design to life.
For example, Image West Metals recently manufactured unique bike racks with maintenance stations, located throughout Salt Lake City. The maintenance stations carry the tools any rider may need to change a tire or do basic bike maintenance. The team created the bike racks according to a drawing, making slight tweaks along the way to ensure the finished product was both artistic and functional, providing people with a new convenience that benefits the entire city.
These bike racks and maintenance stations were a new design, but this won’t pose a challenge for experienced welders and fabricators who can work with a simple drawing or image to create unique metal structures. Even if you only have an idea, but are not sure how to build it, your local metal shop can provide suggestions to help you create your metal project.
When all you have is a drawing to base your design on, things can go wrong, or your drawings may not be done according to safety and engineering regulations. Having a local metal shop on your side can provide you with peace of mind that your design can really work the way you intend it to. During the fabrication process, a professional can also detect problems with the design and make suggestions or adjustments to fix the problem.
A custom metal fabrication job can be accomplished in both large and small quantities, or you can choose to have a prototype created to ensure that your design can be mass produced. As the the new design is being created, any issues will become quickly apparent, saving you time, money, and frustration later on.
