What is Mild Steel Fabrication?
Mild steel fabrication is a metal working process using mild steel material. It involves various manufacturing techniques and processes such as welding, shaping, rolling, cutting, bending, and more. Due to its excellent ductility, weldability, and malleability, mild steel is the best choice for several processes and industries.
A form of carbon steel with little carbon content is called mild steel. Mild steel also referred to as low carbon steel, has a carbon content of between 0.05 and 0.25 percent by weight. It is not alloy steel because it only contains small amounts of the components iron and ferrite. Mild steel can easily machine, cut, twist, bend, punch, drill, weld, roll, forge, etc. Compare to stainless steel, working with mild steel is simpler and more cost-effective.
In various manufacturing techniques, KDM can produce various mild steel products such as automotive parts, stairs and hand railings for buildings structures, structural frames for buildings structures, frames for heavy equipment, etc. A broad scope of surface treatments is available to meet different types of applications. If you have unique mild steel fabrication requirements, you can contact us immediately.
Mild Steel Fabrication Techniques and Processes
A method of shaping mild steel metal using compression forces. It uses rollers, presses, or hammers. Forgings can be produced with extremely tight tolerances.
Machining process can deliver high precision and accurate mild steel machined parts. We can work with various mild steel grades that withstand various machining processes.
Cold rolling processes offers smoother surface products with greater dimensional accuracy and increased hardness. It increased tensile strength and yield strength.
KDM is an expert in tempering mild steel fabrication. It provides advantages such as increased ductility, less brittleness, and improved abrasion resistance.
Drilling process uses a drill bit to remove material. A drill press, which applies the necessary amount of force, will be used for the drilling. KDM is professional in this method.
KDM uses mild steel flame spraying to improved durability, corrosion protection, hardness, and wear resistance. It adds protection to damaged materials.
Nitriding is a quick processing and low-temperature process. It can enhance the material’s bending qualities and resistance to abrasion. It is a clean pollution-free operation.
Hot rolling improved the mechanical properties and remove the microstructure defects of the material such as cracks, bubbles, looseness, etc. KDM has advanced tools and machinery for this process.

Various Mild Steel Grades Suitable for Fabrication
Depending on the qualities your steel manufacturing project requires, there are numerous mild steel grades accessible to you. The following are some of the most low carbon steel grades KDM can work with:
EN 1.0301 – This steel grade has 0.4 percent manganese, 0.1 percent carbon, and 0.4 percent silicon. It is frequently used for cold-headed, extruded, forged, and cold-pressed parts and forms because of its good weldability. It is generally utilized in appliances, furnishings, and automobile equipment.
EN 1.1121 – Due to its unusually high ductility, EN 1.1121 is a widely used low carbon steel grade. It has a carbon content of about 0.1 percent and an average manganese content of 0.45 percent. It can be formed using manufacturing methods such as welding, heat treatment, quenching, and tempering. This process can increase its strength.
EN 1.0402 – Hydraulic components and camshafts are usually made from this material. It also has an excellent blend of ductility, strength, and durability.
Mild Steel Properties
- High-Strength – mild steel fabrication reduces material thickness, weight, and costs. It undergoes various treatments to produce exceedingly high-quality properties.
- Resilient – mild steel is resilient material with the long life cycle. It is a cost-effective option when considering life cycle costs.
- Easy to fabricate – mild steels are easily shaped, machined, cut, welded, and quickly produced.
- Great Appearance – Mild steel is available in a variety of surface finishes. It produces a beautiful, gratifying appearance.
- Temperature Resistance – Mild steel finished products withstand extremely high temperatures while still maintaining great quality.
Mild Steel Fabrication Applications
- Steel buildings and bridges – Mild steel are ideal for the construction industry due to its malleability, weldability and ductility. It is also fire-proof and complies with stringent seismic and wind requirements.
- Gates and fencing – mild steel gates and fencing provide excellent security and aesthetic appeal. Mild steel is unbreakable and can be surface treated primed or galvanized.
- Machinery Parts – Mild steel is perfect for manufacturing machinery parts due to its malleability properties.
- Pipelines made of mild steel are frequently used to transmit gases and liquids. This is because they are exceedingly ductile and are simple to weld. Additionally, under pressure, mild steel pipes do not fracture; rather, they bend to permit the fluids to pass freely.

Different Mild Steel Fabrication Surface Treatment
Galvanizing on mild steel material is the lowest overall cost compared to other coatings. The product has a permanently-bonded tough coating, easy to clean surface. It is an environmentally-friendly finishing process that enhanced steel appearance and prevents corrosion.
Powder coating process increases the mild steel’s toughness. The finished mild steel frame endures longer and withstands damage better, consistent quality even if exposed to moisture and humidity. It offers a protective layer that aids in preventing corrosion when applied to steel.
A thin metallic layer is created on the substrate during the electroplating process. A positively charged electrical current is passed through a solution containing dissolved metal ions during this process. Aside from mild steel, other metals such as copper, nickel, silver, and zinc are common metals used for electroplating. To improve the performance of almost any base metal that conducts electricity, electroplating can be used.
Surface treatment painting improves a mild steel product’s look and resistance to corrosion. Some of the most popular ways of applying paint to a component’s surface include dipping, brushing, electrostatic painting, spray painting, and powder coating. These methods protect metal parts in a variety of physical situations and achieve incredibly consistent results.
