Welding Aluminum vs. Welding Steel

It’s often said that aluminum is a harder metal to weld than steel. And while it’s true that most welders start out by learning to weld steel before moving on to aluminum, it’s not entirely accurate to say that it’s harder. In general, welding aluminum is simply different, and requires a solid understanding of those … Continue reading “Welding Aluminum vs. Welding Steel”

Fabricating Aluminum vs. Fabricating Steel

As would probably be expected, precision steel fabrication and manufacturing is a big part of what we do at EVS Metal. While steel tends to the metal most frequently undergoing a range of fabrication processes at any given time, we frequently work with aluminum as well. However, these two metals require different treatment by our … Continue reading “Fabricating Aluminum vs. Fabricating Steel”

Aluminum Facts

As an all-under-one-roof metal fabricator, steel may make up the bulk of what EVS Metal uses to fabricate parts and products, but aluminum plays an important part in our business as well. Last week, we covered some of the basics of aluminum — what it is, where it comes from, and how it’s different than … Continue reading “Aluminum Facts”

What are the True Costs of Outsourcing Metal Fabrication Processes to Multiple Vendors: Part Two

While outsourcing fabrication processes can sometimes result in cost savings for Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), there are often hidden expenses that are not terribly clear until it’s too late. Often this is the result of outsourcing to too many contract fabricators, rather than consolidating operations under one or two outside manufacturers. Last week, we talked … Continue reading “What are the True Costs of Outsourcing Metal Fabrication Processes to Multiple Vendors: Part Two”

What are the True Costs of Outsourcing Fabrication Processes to Multiple Vendors?

OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) can end up spending an inordinate amount of time looking for the best, most efficient processes and contract fabricators to manufacture their products. While this is, at least on the surface, a worthy endeavor, where many go wrong is that they outsource to too many contractors. While each fabricator may indeed … Continue reading “What are the True Costs of Outsourcing Fabrication Processes to Multiple Vendors?”
