Just roll forming isn’t very valuable to you. You can do just roll forming in-house. To be competitive, a manufacturer has to offer value throughout your supply chain, from beginning to end of the project.
Will people remember your building after interacting with it? Or will they leave and immediately forget it?
Who wants to make great roll formed parts? Not you, obviously. Optimization is so boring. You’re a trailblazer, a forward thinker -- and that means going against the grain. Breaking tradition.
The terminology of architectural mouldings (also spelled moldings) can be vague and confusing. Here’s a quick overview of common types and distinctions.
Architectural design aims to balance economy, elegance, and efficiency. Perforated metal paneling and wire mesh certainly apply to all three.
Galvannealed and galvanized steels start out similarly. They are both dipped into a hot zinc bath (approximately 850° F), so the zinc bonds to the metal's surface. This coating increases the steel's durability and protects against corrosion.
It's the introduction of a secondary process that[...]
If you’re interested in creative uses of architectural metal, look no further than HOK. They have many examples, but these are some of the most inspiring.
Architectural design may be functional first and foremost, but it’s still a form of art. One aspect of art and analysis is motif.
When you think about supply chain risk mitigation, what are the first things that come to mind? For us, the usual suspects are:
Metal forming processes reshape materials into usable components and products. Included here are the benefits and common applications of:
