How to pack and transport this Globe?
Step 1: Model
By utilizing blueprints or 3D drawings provided by our clients, we initiate the whole design by first using foam, fiber glass or clay as mold for the following procedures, depending on the size, shape, materials and so on. For a plastic scale-down mold, please refer to the video at the bottom.
Step 2: Engineering and Preparing Stainless Steel Sheet
High quality stainless steel is applied in the construction procedure, where we usually use standard AISI/SS 304 Stainless Steel due to its comparatively high cost-effectiveness and practicability among 201 and Marine Grade 316 Stainless Steel Sheet, or specific materials mandated by our clients, say fiber glass or 316. Quality stainless steel is crucial to the whole project, and thus we will choose suitable materials with caution.
After the preparatory process, we will cut the chosen materials into pieces and then bend and shape them according to the mold with the help of certain tools and appliances, such as hammers and plasma cutter. During the process, every piece of them will possess the rough shape and curve as per the presented design.
Step 3: Rebar within the Sculpture
It is critical to ensure the security of the design. Therefore, rebar or armature is going to made accordingly to fit into the sculpture or to be placed outside the sculpture so that it could within wind, snow, rain etc. It is usually made of steel.
Step 4: Further Enhancing
This is the procedure where we are going to attain the exact replica of the design. Since the pieces of stainless steel sheet have been already entitled with the approximate outlook, they are going to be further re-modified, enhanced and honed to perfection.
Step 5: Polishing
By using several tools and materials, the surface of the sculpture is mirror-polished to flawlessness.
Step 6: Packing
Specifically-tailored wooden box will keep the sculpture safe and intact during transport.
