Advantage Manufacturing is a one-stop-shop for steel products serving Drayton Valley, Edmonton, and other surrounding areas. We are one of the few CWB-certified shops to offer expert steel fabrication in Alberta.
What does steel fabrication mean?
Fabrication is the process used to produce various steel components that act as building blocks in the creation of a bigger end product. Large automobile and construction companies buy standard sections of steel from the steelmaker and use the help of fabricators to make amendments to these sections. This process helps in forming an end product of the desired strength, weight, and other specifications.
We offer the best quality steel fabrication in Alberta using the most recent technology. Our team converts pieces of steel into by-products and usable parts through machining, cutting, and welding to produce the best quality product. Due to our extensive expertise, we serve a large base of clientele from the construction, mining, shipping, and automobile industry.
Common applications of Aluminium
Aluminum is among the most prevalent metals in the world and serves several purposes. Some of the most common applications of aluminum include:
- Automobiles, electrical appliances, and solar panels - It is a non-ferrous metal that plays a pivotal role in the manufacturing of cars, air conditioners, solar panels, etc. It has strong heat transfer applications and is excellent for carrying liquids and gases.
- Power lines - It is a lightweight metal that makes it an excellent candidate for carrying energy across long distances. It is mixed with copper or boron to conduct heat and for durability. It is one of the important metals that companies use in making power lines for their ability to withstand corrosion.
- Construction - Aluminium is commonly used in construction projects for building structures like skylights and bridges. It is low maintenance and can be easily painted, molded, or amalgamated with other materials.
Besides, it is also extensively used in building aircraft and helicopters. Furthermore, aluminum alloys are useful in building commercial heat sinks, computer CPU'S, and graphic processors.
Advantages of aluminum
It is a versatile and light-weight metal, with high resistance to corrosion. These properties make aluminum, one of the most commonly used metals in several industries. This non-ferrous metal can be easily cast, melted, molded, and extruded into different shapes and fabricated to suit different requirements.
It is extremely versatile and strong and works well when building complex designs through the process of extrusion. It weighs only 1/3rd the weight of steel and is one of the easiest and cheapest metals to transport. You can transform aluminum into anything using alloying elements to increase its strength and formability. Lastly, due to its lightweight, corrosion resistance, formidability, and ease of fabrication, it is extensively used in vehicle manufacturing, building cladding, electrical appliances, kitchen fittings, etc.
