The metal fabrication industry has undergone significant advancements over the last few decades, largely driven by new innovations in engineering software, manufacturing technology, and materials science.

Computer-aided design (CAD) software and robotic fabrication equipment have largely become the norm, facilitating much higher efficiency and repeatability than traditional manufacturing methods. Furthermore, the convenience of the design process combined with the flexibility of modern production technology has opened up custom metal fabrication services to many new types of products and emerging applications.

Backed by extensive experience in the American fabrication industry, DMG is organized to offer the most versatile contract manufacturing solutions possible. Our company utilizes some of the most cutting-edge manufacturing equipment available to deliver the highest level of precision and efficiency possible.

The Significant Advancements in Metal Fabrication Technology:

CAD and CAM Technology

Computer-aided design (CAD) and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) software streamlines the product development process for today’s fabrication projects. This crucial technology allows for precise designing and even simulation of metal components before the fabrication process begins.

DMG’s engineering experts utilize CAD and CAM development to optimize designs for better functionality while also optimizing products for the production process to follow – i.e. design for manufacturability (DFM).

CNC Manufacturing Systems

Computer-numerically-controlled (CNC) fabrication technology takes the results of the streamlined design process and turns them into functional metal products as efficiently as possible. While most often associated with custom machining services such as CNC milling and turning, CNC technology is also crucial in today’s metal fabrication processes. For example, at DMG we utilize precision CNC forming systems as well as CNC laser cutting.

Advancements in Materials Science

The development of high-performance alloys and advanced metal coatings has expanded the range of materials available for specialized metal fabrication needs. Compared to many traditional steel and conventional alloy options, today’s high-performance metals can offer enhanced strength, durability, corrosion resistance, and other physical/mechanical properties that make them suitable for more demanding applications.

Surface Finishing and Coating Techniques

Compared to traditional liquid paints, higher-performance metal finishing and coating techniques enhance the aesthetics, durability, and functionality of fabricated metal components. From high-performance industrial parts to everyday consumer products, powder coating and specialized surface treatments provide a longer-lasting protective solution.
