Facilities

The workshop is equipped with a shear cutting capacity of 3m x 6mm thick. Our folding/forming facilities consist of a 2.5m 60 Ton press brake with extensive tooling which lends itself to prototyping and small batch work. Both our 3.6m 120 Ton press brake and our 1.5m 30 ton press brake are complete with 4 axis CNC controls and are ideal for accurate and consistent forming on large/continuous projects.

The workshop is equipped with a large box and pan and smaller forming facilities again making prototype or single batch work practical. The workshop is equipped with a 22 station Nisshinbo CNC punch press with the largest stations capable of punching up to 100Ø holes. The punch press is accurate and reliable ensuring consistency on all punched works prior to forming.

The Nisshinbo punch press is programmed with an offline system with our dedicated operator using Radan/Studio software. This means our clients can send via Fax, email or CD rom pre-drawn requirements in any version of AutoCAD or standard DXF format enabling us to accurately and swiftly programme to the client's requirements. The workshop is also equipped with various fly presses, swaging and jointing machines to complement forming and punching facilities.

Our welding department is equipped with 3 No. TIG machines, the largest being a 400 amp square wave machine which enables us to weld thick gauge stainless, aluminium, ferrous materials, copper, brass and titanium. Our latest addition to the welding department is an inverter controlled unit with the capabilities of welding most thin materials accurately and with minimal distortion. The welding facilities are complete with 6 No. MIG plants with dedicated stainless, aluminium and light gauge machines. We also have plasma, oxy acetylene and soldering equipment.

Section Forming and Cutting

Our workshop is equipped with a 6m NC mandrel bender with an 80 dia capacity, ideal for forming tight radiuses on thin wall tubing without necking or distortion. This machine is used extensively for forming mild steel and stainless steel handrails and for services within the automotive industries. We also have a CNC controlled "Baileigh industrial" tube bender, ideal for both single and batch work tube bending, particularly on the thicker walled tubing. We have a pyramid CNC controlled fully power driven ring roller capable of roll forming angle, flat bar, box tube sections and RSC this machine has a capacity of 60 x 60mm angle, 60 x 12mm flat bar and 80 dia x 3mm thick tube. As well as a range of compressed air nut inserting guns we also have 2 M12 capacity stud welding units, this allows studs to be welded to sheet without any face marking or distortion.

We carry a large stock of pre-galvanised steel, plain and stucco aluminium, stainless steel in brushed, bright polished and mill finish in both sheet and section forms, as well as a vast stock of the more conventional materials and sections.
