The main types of CMF or Custom Metal Fabrication, are design, build, and secondary fabrication.

The build and secondary fabrication, are the steps in which we employ different techniques to develop the product you desire, and “polish” or give a special finishing to the product in order to improve the quality standards and give you the satisfaction you deserve.
The development of a product, starting with the earliest stages and finalizing with the expected result has never been an easy task. It requires hard work, knowledge, dedication, and most importantly planning. Some of the services your CMF provider will offer include conceptualizing, visualization and tool design.
Conceptualizing is the stage where we finalize how the final product will look. In other words, factors such as appearance, strength, versatility, and features are decided during this phase. This way, we will be able to organize and plan our activities to start giving shape to the metal and give it out as your product.
After conceptualizing, we usually require specialized software to render 2D and 3D images of the final product. This will help us and the customer to better understand the whole process while giving a very close visualization of what the results will be.
Just as with any the process that involves creativity, Custom metal fabrication Dallas requires talent, and the intertwining of different delicate strategic processes.
There are a fair ew different methods that can be employed when working with CMF. While they all serve a specific purpose individually, in some projects using a combination of two or more will allow us to deliver a better result that is perfectly suited to your needs and will match your expectations.
