Reinforcing steel bars, also referred to as rebar and utilized in reinforced concrete constructions, are created through a process called rebar fabrication. Concrete and steel reinforcement are combined to create reinforced concrete, a composite material that adds durability and strength.
The key aspects of rebar fabrication are Material Selection, Bar Design and Detailing, Cutting and Bending, Welding and Assembly, Quality Control, Tagging and Identification, and Delivery and Installation.
Rebar fabrication is a specialized operation that needs trained personnel, sophisticated equipment, and adherence to engineering standards. Rebar that has been properly manufactured and installed is essential for improving the durability, stability, and strength of reinforced concrete structures.
