Nowadays, backyard renovations often include the modern décor of privacy screening or metal artwork as displays for walls or fencing. You know the ones with the patterns or palm fronds etched on them, which your landscaper may source, or you can find them at your local hardware store if you’re into DIY projects. But have you ever wondered who made them or how they were manufactured?

Tradies, such as us, have a fleet of vehicles which can include Utes with aluminium vehicle canopies that are lockable to keep tools inside. But how were they created?

There are many more examples in everyday life where metal fabrication has played a part in creating structures or objects. According to Metro Steel, over 50% of all products that we have around us require either some form of fabrication or welding.

But who can manufacture such items? Before we answer this…

What exactly is Metal Fabrication?

Australian General Engineering define Metal fabrication as “the process of building machines and structures from raw metal materials. The process includes cutting, burning, welding, machining, forming, and assembly to create the final product”. Or Wikipedia simply puts it as “Metal fabrication is the creation of metal structures by cutting, bending and assembling processes”.

Metro Steel also mentions in an article that “the earliest forms of metal fabrication is thought to stem from around 4000 BC when the ancient Egyptians learned how to bend and shape gold to fashion into jewellery.”

So as to answer the question who can build such items mentioned above through metal fabrication – WE CAN!

Isn’t Voltora an Electrical Contractor?

Yes – but we now also offer metal fabrication services! Why you ask?

As we worked on some commercial projects over the last year, we found the need to subcontract out more metal fabrication, which added another element to the job process and additional costs for us and our clients.

With more projects on the horizon requiring metal fabrication, our Managing Director Tory Ogden thought it was time to bring on a Metal Fabricator/Boiler Maker. As a result, we will be able to offer our clients a “one-stop shop” and keep their costs down.

What have we created so far?

In the first month of our metal fabrication operation, we have created:

Metal Work
Bench Saw
Horse Signs
Safety Bollards
Solar Frames
Bobcat Spreader Bar
Aluminium Enclosure
