Stainless steel fabrication
Here we have a typical stainless steel fabrication project manufactured in our factory at Fareham, Hampshire in December 2013. The blank parts for these boxes and covers were laser cut from 304 stainless steel using our brand new Trumpf 3030 fibre laser cutter and then bent up using a range of our CNC folding press brakes. The stainless inserts were then inserted in our Haeger inserter press and fly presses. All the welding was produced using our TiG welding facility. The boxes and covers were then sent for polishing to produce a perfect outside finish that was smooth and showed no sign of welding at the corners joints. All the welded plates had tags laser cut in position to line up with slots in their mating parts to make assembly easy for the welders and ensure all parts lined up correctly. These tags and slots can easily be inserted into the 3D model using our Radan sheet metal software. It’s nice to be able to show a project like this that encompasses so many different manufacturing processes and enables us to show off what we can do for our customers. The final completed box and cover will house a pump and control gear for the fuel delivery industry.
