Working with flat patterns every day is the ultimate practice for learning to visualize how things will “unfold” inside your head. http://bit.ly/2hpLa6j
Take a flat-patterned drawing and visualize the end product, complete with all of the necessary bends in the correct sequence and orientation. Can you do it? This skill is much appreciated in a metal fabrication shop.

FMA Communications has moved to a new office. http://www.thefabricator.com/blog/moving-pains
Things change and businesses move. Change and moving aren’t always easy, but acceptance and good planning can help make the transition as seamless and painless as possible. Remember, it is what it is. Make the best of it.

In deciding how to manage welding fumes in your facility, you need to consider several situational factors and the welding equipment being used, both of which will influence just how the end goal is met. http://bit.ly/2haUJ9W
Welding fumes should be a real concern for fabricating shop owners. By understanding what types of materials they are dealing with, the explosive nature of metal dust, and the proper ventilation system needed to control the fumes, shop owners can keep their employees safe and focused on the job.
