What Fabrication Processes Can THERSER UK Offer

The heavy fabrication process involves a number of different steps, including design, material selection, cutting, welding, bending, and finishing. Each of these steps requires specialized equipment and skilled technicians to ensure that the final product meets the necessary specifications and quality standards.

Extrusion: Extrusion is a process of forcing a material through a die 
to create a long, continuous shape with a constant cross section. The 
material can be metal, plastic, or rubber. Extrusion can be used to 
create products such as tubing, rods, and profiles.

Sheet metal fabrication: Sheet metal fabrication is a process of 
cutting, bending, and forming thin sheets of metal to create various 
products. Sheet metal can be cut using laser cutting, waterjet 
cutting, or shearing. Bending can be done using press brakes or roll 
forming. Forming can be done using punching or stamping.

3D printing: 3D printing is a process of creating objects by layering 
material using a 3D printer. The printer reads a digital file and creates 
the object by depositing material layer by layer. 3D printing can be 
used to create complex geometries, prototypes, and custom parts.



Welding Types

MIG welding (Metal Inert Gas)

TIG welding (Tungsten Inert Gas)

Flux-cored welding

Gas welding

Stick welding (Shielded Metal Arc Welding)


Quality Inspection and Testing

Perform non-destructive testing

Verify dimensional accuracy

 Conduct visual inspection

 Assess weld quality

Use dye penetrant testing

Apply pressure and fatigue testing

Qualify welding procedures

Maintain comprehensive documentation

Heavy fabrication involves rigorous quality inspection and testing procedures to ensure 
the structural integrity, dimensional accuracy, and performance of the fabricated product. 
Along with non-destructive testing techniques and dimensional checks, visual 
inspection, weld quality assessment, hardness testing, and other specialized tests 
help verify the quality of the fabrication. Thorough documentation and traceability 
further ensure compliance with standards and provide a reference for future inspections or repairs. By implementing comprehensive quality checks and inspections, you can confidently deliver high quality, reliable heavy fabrications that meet customer specifications and industry requirements.
