Encyclopedia description

The Metalframes Fab processes refined steel and other alloys for the manufacture of large steel beams and numerous other heavy metal components. Even though most small and mid-sized space vessels today are no longer constructed mainly from steel, the demand for the steel is still high. In many places with higher-than-average radiation, steel-alloys can be more practical than energy shields or even PDD (poly-diamandoid). Many immobile space installations are constructed with a metal-alloy skeleton at their core.
