#6 Aluminium Doors Windows Manufacturing Process
Fabrication is the process where raw material turns into the parts that used in an assembly process.
There are different types of the fabrication process according to the raw material used and method of fabrication.
Let’s take a look at the types of fabrication processes used in aluminum door and window making.
Cutting is the most common process used I fabrication. In this process, the metal workpiece is split into two or many pieces there are different types of cutting machinery available in the market.
Metal cutting with the hacksaw is a traditional way to cut metal.
But nowadays Metal cutting is taking place with plasma torches, water jets, lasers machine and other advanced machines.
This operation will perform in the very specific case when some parts need to be bending for making the possible shape.
Dies and bending machine is used to metal folding or metal bending.
This process is used to remove the excess material from raw material, this process is done with a lathe machine or three axes machine.
Punching process is used to convert metal into required shape using die and punching machine.
The process of making a long cut on a piece of metal. This process is done on sheet metal.
Stamping process similar to that punching process, but here metal is not cut into pieces only the die is shaped to make a raised portion of material rather than penetrating.
This is one of the oldest and flexible methods used in fabrication.
In this process, Metal is poured into the mold to get the desired shape of the mold.
Welding is a process of joining two pieces together, there are various types of welding process exists.
Some popular welding methods are
- Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW)
- Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW/MIG)
- Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW)
- Gas Tungsten Arc Gas Welding (GTAW/TIG)
Once the metal is converted into the required form it needs to paint, silk coating and corrosion coating.
