Perforation Rollers and Lasers Create Revenue Opportunities for Metal Fabrication Industries

Advancements in perforated metal are being observed in the North America metal fabrication market. Perforation rollers are becoming increasingly commonplace in the metal fabrication industry in order to create even and uniform punches in metal. Equipment manufacturers are increasing efforts to develop project-specific rollers to meet unique demands of clients. These trends contribute toward the growth of the North America metal fabrication market, which is estimated to reach a value of ~US$ 6 Bn by the end of 2030.

There is a growing demand for perforation rollers that can go through the metal cold or be heated to create a clean punch each time. These novel rollers are creating incremental opportunities for metal fabrication companies, since the heated pin in these rollers creates a reinforced ring around the perforation to increase the strength of the metal. On the other hand, lasers are being highly publicized for the perforation of metals.

Automation: Hero or Villain in Metal Fabrication?

Automation is revolutionizing the North America metal fabrication market. Industry 4.0 and metal fabrication activities are gaining prominence in manufacturing end-use products. This is evident since the manufacturing end use segment is expected to generate the third-highest revenue in the market.

Moreover, job scarcity is one of the outcomes of the adoption of automated processes. However, there is an industry-wide labor shortage in the North America metal fabrication market. Hence, companies are adopting automated procedures to meet the demands of clients. Robots are not completely eliminating human workers in the market landscape, but come handy in automating unskilled or mundane tasks. Thus, fabricators are tapping into opportunities in other aspects of welding and machining of metal fabrication that require manual labor.

Supply Chain Crisis Due to COVID-19 Demands More Visibility for Monitor Networks

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has disrupted supply chains in the North America metal fabrication market. With rapidly surging COVID-19 cases and deaths in the U.S., the overall economy in North America is undergoing unprecedented changes. Metal fabrication containerships are being delayed and arriving after several days. The author of Supply Chain Resilience, Phil Palin, focused on catastrophe-preparedness at the MODEX material handling tradeshow held in Atlanta on March 10 2020. Many factories in the North America metal fabrication market have resumed their production activities, but are challenged by the non-availability of truckers.

Metal fabrication companies are strategizing on visibility in supply chain networks to meet the demands of automotive industry clients. Moreover, there is a growing demand for the right data to differentiate between just-in-time lean inventory and resilient supply chains. Thus, metal fabricators are focusing more on agility and less on inventory amidst the COVID-19 crisis.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

The agility in processes is the key to overcome supply chain challenges amidst the COVID-19 crisis. On the other hand, the tube laser technology is offering companies in the North America metal fabrication market with several opportunities. This technology is being highly publicized to produce more precise cuts and reduce downtime associated with the downstream assembly.

Robotic and artificial intelligence technologies are bringing a significant change in the market landscape. However, primitive techniques in metal fabrication are resulting in less-than-optimal designs, thus inhibiting market growth. Hence, companies should adopt perforation rollers to create even metal designs that meet client requirements in construction, automotive, and manufacturing industries.
