Three Questions to Ask Before Designing a Metal Fabrication Project

When it comes to finding a metal fabrication service to produce a custom metal part or project, the success of the project all comes down to one crucial part of the fabrication process – design. 

By running your project through a smart design process before starting work, designers can map out the best fabrication process for that specific project. In addition, this step saves time and money by identifying any issues or complications prior to starting the project. However, in order to produce a high-quality part, it’s helpful for the designers to know a few things about your project before production even begins.

Keep reading to learn more about the questions to ask yourself before choosing a potential metal fabrication supplier for your project, and contact BenCo Technology today with any questions you have about how we can complete your project on time, on spec and on budget.

What is Your Process?

When starting a fabrication project, it’s critical to have a solid understanding of the timeframe you expect your project to be completed as well as the quantity of the part you need and your overall budget for the project itself. At BenCo, we make every effort to complete your project on time, on spec and on budget, but it’s important to let our team know what you expect in terms of results. By communicating this information ahead of time, we can design your project correctly from the very beginning and avoid the need to go back later and rectify the situation. To learn more about our design and fabrication processes as well as how we can work with you to complete your project to your specifications, contact our team today.

Will This Project Last Over Time?

As more businesses seek to reduce costs and boost their bottom lines, it’s becoming increasingly important to ensure you are getting the highest quality parts for your money. If you invest a significant amount of time, money and resources into a project only to have it fall short several months or years down the line, you’re hurting your profitability as well as your customers’. Therefore, it’s important to think about how long you intend for your project to last and communicate this to your design team so that they can select the right materials and fabrication processes to make that happen. Should you need help determining project sustainability, we’re always happy to work with you and answer your questions along the way.

Will This Design Give Me a Competitive Advantage?

When you think about the design you have in place for your part or project, ask yourself whether this design will give you an advantage over the competition. Poor composition, weak welding and material defects can all hurt you in the long run, which is why we aim to produce the highest quality parts we can – right off the bat. Going back to the drawing board during the fabrication process simply isn’t an option for us. When you work with the designers at BenCo, you can rest assured that we have your best interests in mind and will use our tools and experience to make sure your project sets you above your competitors from the very beginning.
