Laser cutting 2mm mild steel – sparks generated from piercing holes
Whether you call is manufacturing, production, fabrication, engineering etc. It’s still the process of taking raw materials and transforming them. Manufacturing can be laser cutting complex shapes from mild steel. Perhaps to be used as the starting point (a blank) for a wall fixing bracket. It could be CNC punching aluminium strips that will be rolled and welded together to make rings. Again, manufacturing might be folding and then welding stainless steel pump housings for the pharmaceutical industry. They all take materials and process the in some way.
