What are the Advantages of Powder Coating for Metal Fabrication Projects?

Posted by CAMM Metals on Jul 15, 2020 3:34:29 PM

Metal fabricators act as one of the pillars that support the nation’s infrastructure and economy. Countless aspects of our day-to-day life depends on some form of product fabricated from metal, whether its household appliances or critical medical technology. In short, fabricated metal products are invaluable in society, if they've been properly finished by a trained professional.

Why is Metal Finishing Important for the Finished Product?

Taken on its own, raw metal has some distinct problems; without proper finishing, exposed metals can eventually corrode and tarnish. Depending on the intended use, unfinished metal-fabricated parts can be eroded by salts, weakened by ultraviolet light or rusted by rain. However, metal fabricators realized many years ago that properly finishing components is essential for enhancing durability and the product’s life span.

How to Reduce the Cost of Laser Cutting Projects

Posted by CAMM Metals on Jul 14, 2020 3:33:58 PM

Laser cut parts are valuable for many industries, and the pieces are critical aspects of machinery in sectors ranging from aerospace  to the medical field. However, many companies are simply unaware that their laser cutting costs, despite the production, could be dramatically reduced by simple alternate choices and improved communication with their laser cutting partner.

Laser cutting is a uniquemethod of piercing material with a laser beam to melt or destroy the material in a precise line, resulting in a clean finish. Many companies, small businesses, and industrial organizations opt for laser cutting because it produces barely perceptible edge effects from the cutting, unlike many other methods.
