Fabrication at de Havilland Fabrication & Welding is carried out to approved procedures by qualified welders.

If you would like to discuss our capacity or about your fabrication projects, please do not hesitate to contact us.


Fabrication is the building of metal structures by cutting, bending, and assembling processes:

Cutting is done by sawing, shearing, or chiseling (all with manual and powered variants); torching with handheld torches (such as oxy-fuel torches or plasma torches); and via CNC cutters (using a laser, mill bits, torch, or water jet).

Bending is done by hammering (manual or powered) or via press brakes and similar tools.

Assembling (joining of the pieces) is done by welding, binding with adhesives, riveting, threaded fasteners, or even yet more bending in the form of a crimped seam. Structural steel and sheet metal are the usual starting materials for fabrication, along with the welding wire, flux, and fasteners that will join the cut pieces. As with other manufacturing processes, both human labor and automation are commonly used.

The product resulting from fabrication may be called a fabrication. Shops that specialise in this type of metal work are called fab shops.

The end products of other common types of metalworking, such as machining, metal stamping, forging, and casting, may be similar in shape and function, but those processes are not classified as fabrication.
