Metal fabrication technology has made huge strides over the last several decades. The tools we use to manufacture your metal parts are increasingly integrated with precision-based computer controls and automation. Nevertheless, the fabrication process demands just as much expertise and craftsmanship as ever before.

It’s a misconception that CNC machines do all of the hard work and heavy lifting to completely automate the fabrication process. In reality, the quality and repeatability of your end products are highly dependent on how our technicians set up the machine, maintain the tools, and constantly monitor the results. They may not be manually controlling the machines most of the time, but they’re more intimately involved in other ways throughout production.

From CNC programming to custom workholding to ongoing quality control, the entire DMG team works hard to ensure ongoing precision and repeatability for your custom fabricated products.

Choosing the Right Metal Materials for the Job

Once you have a finalized product design, one of the first roles your metal fabrication company undertakes is choosing the ideal metal for the application at hand. While it’s not uncommon for customers to specify their own chosen materials, we’re backed by decades of combined expertise in materials science to make the best suggestion for your unique products.

Choosing the right metal ensures quality manufacturing results and functional performance of the end product, in addition to optimizing your project in terms of cost. In specialized cases, we may suggest the use of higher-performance steel and alloy material options. These premium materials combined with advanced metal coatings can offer enhanced strength, corrosion resistance, and other material properties that make them more suitable for today’s challenging industrial applications.

Effectively Employing CNC, CAD, and CAM Technology

Advanced CAD software and CNC fabrication systems have substantially streamlined the process of manufacturing precision parts and components. However, we don’t simply load up the part design, load in the workpiece, and hit the “start” button. The fabrication process still demands expertise and craftsmanship from start to finish.

For many custom fabrication projects, the product development and design process is ongoing. We can often make further enhancements in design for manufacturability (DFM) specific to our production machinery to ensure your products translate as smoothly as possible from digital design to metal. Even with our full integration of CNC and CAD systems, our technicians still work hands-on with your products to ensure precision results every step of the way – from machine setup and monitoring to post-process quality control.

Ensuring a Quality Metal Finish

Taking quality a step further, we want to make sure your fabricated parts are finished to perfection. That’s why we implement high-performance powder coating and other metal finishing solutions into our value-added secondary processes.

Compared to conventional liquid paints, our heavy-duty coating techniques enhance both the aesthetics and durability of your products. Beyond meeting your manufacturing specifications, DMG fabricates parts with a premium look and feel that will stand the test of time against rust and corrosion.
