Why is a prototype custom fabricated before producing multiple weldments?

The reason for making a prototype custom fabricated before producing multiple weldments.

Explanation

Fabrication refers to the creation or development of metal structures by means of various metal removals, forming and assembling processes which include cutting, bending etc.

An automated process cannot be implemented for the mere task of fabricating small number of objects or similar kinds of objects.

Therefore, for producing large number of similar objects and items, the first object is always produced and fabricated by means of hand as per the dimensions and the instruction on the technical drawing of the component.

This object thus produced is known as a prototype which is then further used to mass produce the desired object...
