Aluminum fabrication is the process of shaping aluminum into a finished product, such as a solar panel part or an outdoor enclosure. Fabrication of aluminum spans a wide field of processes, including welding, stamping, bending, extruding, and shearing, just to name a few. Aluminium alloys are normally supplied as semi-finished products such as sheet, plate, coil, extrusions, tube or wire. All forms can then be readily fabricated into finished products using a wide range of processes. An aluminum fabricator is a person who works with aluminum in many forms to create useful items. Using skills, such as cutting, bending and welding, the aluminum fabricator is able to make detailed projects that offer not only strength, but functionality as well.
