Fabrication Tickets

Identification and Tracking

Each fabrication ticket is typically assigned a unique identifier or job number, which helps in tracking the progress of the fabrication job throughout the production cycle.

Job Details

Fabrication tickets contain detailed information about the job, including the part or product to be fabricated, its description, quantity, and any special requirements or specifications.

Materials and Components

They specify the materials to be used, such as types of metals, alloys, or other materials, as well as any necessary components, fasteners, or accessories.

Technical Drawings

Fabrication tickets often include technical drawings, blueprints, or CAD (Computer-Aided Design) files that illustrate the exact dimensions, tolerances, and specifications for the fabricated item. These drawings serve as a reference for machinists or fabricators.

Work Instructions

Detailed work instructions are a central component of fabrication tickets. They outline the step- by-step process for fabricating the part or product, including machining operations, welding techniques, assembly instructions, and quality control checks.

Quality Control Checks

Fabrication tickets may specify inspection points and quality control criteria to ensure that the fabricated items meet specific standards and quality requirements. This includes measurements, testing, and visual inspections.

Tooling and Equipment

Information about the machinery, tools, and equipment required for the fabrication process is often included. This ensures that the fabricators have access to the necessary resources.

Safety Guidelines

Fabrication tickets may also include safety instructions and precautions to ensure the well-being of the workers involved in the fabrication process.

Cost Estimation

In some cases, fabrication tickets may include cost estimates for the job, including labor, materials, and overhead costs. This helps in tracking the project’s financial aspects.

Signatures and Approvals

Depending on the organization’s workflow, fabrication tickets may require signatures or approvals from supervisors, quality control personnel, or other stakeholders at various stages of the fabrication process.

Progress Tracking

Fabrication tickets are used to monitor the progress of each job, including start and completion dates, labor hours expended, and any deviations from the original plan.

Documentation and Records

They serve as essential documentation for record-keeping and auditing purposes, ensuring that the fabrication process adheres to industry standards and regulations.
