How LCF Achieves Excellence in Metal Product Manufacturing

Overview of LCF’s Process for Superior Home and Garden Metal Products

At LaserCAM Fabrication Inc. (LCF), achieving excellence in manufacturing top-tier home and garden metal products involves a meticulous process. Here’s a step-by-step look at how we create best-in-class metal products:

1. Design Phase

The journey begins with the design phase. Our designers use advanced computer-aided design (CAD) software to craft detailed 2D and 3D models. This allows us to visualize the final product, evaluate its functionality, and ensure it fits seamlessly into its intended space.

2. Material Selection

Once the design is set, we move to material selection. We primarily use titanium, steel, aluminum, and stainless steel. Each material offers unique benefits:

  • Aluminum: Lightweight and corrosion-resistant, ideal for outdoor furniture.
  • Stainless Steel: Durable and resistant to corrosion, perfect for both outdoor and indoor use.
  • Steel: Strong and robust, suited for heavy-duty indoor furniture. The choice of material depends on the product's intended use, design requirements, and budget.

3. Manufacturing Process

With materials chosen, we begin manufacturing:

  • Cutting: Metal sheets are precisely cut into required shapes using CNC (Computer Numerical Control) laser cutting machines.
  • Bending and Shaping: The cut metal pieces are then bent and shaped using CNC-assisted press brakes and other equipment, bringing the design to life.
  • Welding: The shaped pieces are welded to form the product's frame. Skilled welders ensure strong and secure joints. Depending on the design, rivets or PEM inserts may also be used for assembly.

4. Surface Treatment

Post-welding, the product undergoes surface treatment:

  • Cleaning: The product is cleaned to prepare for finishing.
  • Powder Coating: Unless the product is stainless steel, it receives a powder-coated finish. This coating is more durable and resistant to scratches and chipping compared to traditional paint.

5. Quality Control

Quality control is integral throughout our manufacturing process:

  • Inspection: Our inspectors monitor the product at various stages to ensure it adheres to design specifications and passes safety tests.
