Metal Fabrication


We have a team of highly qualified and experienced machine operators, fabricators and welders working to the highest professional standards.

Metal fabrication includes several processes of manufacturing metal components by changing the raw metal material using various tools. Metal fabrication processes can be classified as cold, warm and hot working depending on the temperature at which the material is processed.

Most of the objects around us from paper clips to automobile parts are transformed by metal fabrication processes such as bending, punching, drilling, turning, grinding, threading etc. The factors influencing the metal fabrication process included the type of material being machined, the rate of production, the desired geometry, and other physical requirements of the part.


  • Lead times are dependent on customer needs
  • Delivery either by our trucks, common carrier, or freight trucking
  • Outside processes include: galvanising, powder coating, laser cutting and engraving.
  • Metal fabrication can be divided into the following categories.

Metal Forming

Including: Forging, Rolling, Extrusion, Drawing, Bending and Spinning

Shearing

Shearing is a metal cutting process through which flat surfaces cut using a scissors-like action, usually in straight lines.

Turret Punching

Turret Punching creates shapes in sheet material by successively punching a series of basic shapes. Edges are cut by the shearing action of a punch and die.

Production

We have fully equipped workshops including: welding, forming, fabricating and polishing. We have facilities for handling stainless steel, glass and more specialised materials. We can provide sections, fabricated, drilled and painted if required, for self- installation, or a complete supply and install service.

For those short-run or one-off specials, repairs and refurbishments, we maintain our own machine shop to keep lead times down to a minimum.

We produce a range of Architectural Metalwork features including: Balconies, Staircases, Mezzanines, Balustrades and Canopies, as well as a range of specialised and secondary metalwork and structural steelwork. From low cost galvanised steel to prestige stainless steel and glass or decorative.
Structural & Trimming Steelwork

We can take care of structural elements of buildings, working from designs provided, or providing design services with professional indemnification. We can provide sections, fabricated, drilled and painted if required, for self-installation, or a complete supply and install service.


Machine Shop

For those short-run or one-off specials, repairs and refurbishments, we maintain our own machine shop to keep lead times down to a minimum. Our skilled craftsmen will ensure that there is minimum downtime for repairs and reduced lead time when something unique is required.

Blanking

During blanking, different shaped parts are created in sheet metal by applying a punch and die.

Material Removal

Including: Sawing, Tapping, Broaching, Boring, Turning, Drilling, Milling and Grinding.
