Stainless steel is a complicated type of metal to work with, especially when you have no idea about them. That’s why it’s best to hand over your dream project to some of the finest welders and engineers who have been giving their 200% in our facility. At FMB Trading And Engineering Pte Ltd, we always try to impress our clients with the advanced machinery and high-quality material. That’s why we are the pioneers of this industry since 1991.
Advantages of Stainless Steel Fabrication
If you are asking yourself whether it was a legit decision to choose Stainless steel for your products, let me remind you why you made up your mind for Stainless steel fabrication in the first place.
Resistance against Corrosion: Perhaps the most important reason why you chose stainless steel for your custom made an order is its rust proof nature. It increases the lifetime of the material or product, saving your money and hassle. Especially for industries that involve wet atmosphere, stainless steel have no other economic alternative.
Ease of fabrication: Everyone will agree that with top-notch machinery and tools, it’s easier to cut, mold, bend, and weld stainless steel compared to regular mild steel.
100% Recyclable: Another good reason why you should go with stainless steel fabrication is the affordability to recycle the entire material when you no longer need the item.
Hygienic: For uses in Hospital, kitchen, and anywhere where you might want to keep hygienic, Stainless steel items are best for use.
Heat Resistance: For heat exchangers, valves, boilers, and anything that comes within the range of extreme heat, stainless steel can be useful as they have a good resistance against heat.
High strength to Weight ratio: The higher grades of stainless steel has comparatively better strength to weight advantage. This is why industrialists use stainless steel to make their items durable yet lightweight.
Looks: Nothing can match the satisfaction of looking at a stainless steel produced item. This is another reason why your factory or household items should be made of stainless steel.
Fabrication of Stainless Steel
Stainless steel fabrication includes Cutting, shaping, molding, bending, grinding, welding, assembling, etc. and we do it with our team of experienced operators and top-notch machines and tools.
For stainless steel fabrication, we specifically use Mechanical cutting or thermal cutting.
a) Sawing: We use proper tools to ensure you get the precise shape and dimensions. That’s why we use sawing in our facility to cut stainless steel with ease and precision.
b) Hand Hacksawing: Hand hacksawing is usually used to the random cutting of lightweight gauge material that has a small diameter.
c) Power hacksawing: We use power hacksawing to cut austenitic and duplex grades of stainless steel.
d) Shearing: Stainless steel requires more power to cut and that’s why shearing is an efficient way to fabricate stainless steel.
e) Abrasive Cutting: Our experienced operators use the rotation of high-speed abrasive discs to cut through stainless steel.
f) Water jet cutting: This one is comparatively new. But it is already a game changer. For extreme precision in cutting, water jet cutting has no match. With it, you can make delicate designs according to your imagination.
A) Powder (Flux) cutting: Although this cutting method is not ideal for stainless steel, we still use this for more efficiency in joining.
B) Plasma Arc Cutting: Perhaps plasma arc cutting is the most common thermal cutting method that we use.
C) Laser cutting: Laser cutting is another common way to shape your favorite item in a fabrication factory.
D) Arc cutting: In the electric arc process, the temperature gets extremely high and our expert operators use the cutting technique to precisely shape the steel sheet. Two common methods of arc cutting is oxygen-arc cutting and carbon-arc cutting.
It’s not hidden that stainless steel is more challenging to machines than regular carbon steel. But the ferritic grades of stainless steel is comparatively easier to machine than the austenitic grades.
Machining process includes threading, drilling, turning, bending, milling etc.
Grinding is actually a process to get the polished finish on the surface of any metallic item. This is done by removing the uneven metallic area of your item’s surface. We have a well-equipped workforce and a wide range of tools to ensure a smooth surface for all your products so that it looks and feels smooth.
Welding and Joining
Welding, joining or assembling is the most crucial part of the whole production process. At FMB Trading And Engineering Pte Ltd, we make sure that the finish is spot on. That’s why we use TIG, MIG arc welding to precisely join the stainless steel parts to give your finished product that doesn’t only looks good but also work efficiently for your purpose.
Tungsten Inert Gas or TIG welding
TIG is a welding process that’s known for using non-consumable tungsten electrode, accompanied by inert gas like Argon. As Tungsten metal is a rare and its purity is high, the welding quality is quite satisfying, especially for Stainless steel. That’s why TIG welding is the most common and popular welding technique for corrosion resistant steels like stainless less.
In this process, we firstly raise the temperature passing an electric current through the tungsten electrode. This creates an arc that melts the stainless steel and creates weld pool.
Why we provide TIG welding:
- Filler rod isn’t necessary
- Suitable for any type of welding position
- AC polarity of Aluminium and magnesium
- Appropriate for even thin stainless steel sheet
- Better weld quality for stainless steel
- Fusion welding is possible
- No slag or spatter
Metal Inert Gas or MIG welding
MIG (Metal Inert Gas) welding involves combining metals with a wire, connected to an electrode current. This wire gets through the welding stick that is shielded by an inert gas.
Advantages of MIG Welding includes the lower degree of precision and ease of use. But MIG welding very much sensitive to the external factors such as dust, rain, wind, and even voltage and wire speed.
This welding is mostly used in stainless steel fabrication as it’s capable of giving you a sturdy, strong weld that is done properly and able to withstand the larger forces, giving you utmost versatility as well as strength required for such application.
Why we provide MIG welding:
- High productivity
- low-cost equipment
- High deposition rate
- Low cost consumable
- Low hydrogen deposits
- Minimum spatter
- Can be used for any thickness
- Easy to master
- Clean and efficient
- High electrode efficiency
- Faster welding
Why are we the best at Stainless Steel fabrication?
There are few distinct characteristics and thinking of our company that sets us part from all the fabricator services you hear about.
Now that you know, what kind of stainless steel related services we give and what is our expertise, you can decide for yourself whether your product will be more secure with other fabricators or with someone who known these things better like our team at FMB Trading And Engineering Pte Ltd, thanks to our well-trained technicians, operators etc.
