Swanton Welding is excited to announce their partnership with Swanton High School to open the N.D. Zeiter School of Technology.
Custom Fabrication and Welding News
Stainless steel can be the steel of choice for many applications, but when it comes to heavy fabrication, the cost of creating large pieces entirely from stainless can be cost prohibitive.
Creating non-essential parts and framework from a lower costing carbon steel can help reduce the overall costs of larger fabrication projects.
Building a massive metal device to lift semi trucks in the air and tilt them several degrees safely and securely is no easy feat. But Swanton Welding didn’t just fabricate one, the company created two at the same time.
Paint is the most commonly used material to protect steel and other metals.This is mainly done for two reasons; for appearance and for corrosion prevention. Why would you want your huge financial investment to look bad and just rust away?
The term “storage tank” has a remarkably broad definition. While it sounds simple enough, a storage tank will vary from person to person and industry to industry. Custom fabricated storage tanks can be designed and built to contain organic liquids, non-organic liquids, vapors, or solids. These custom tanks are specifically designed and built with a customer’s need and usage in mind. Industries where storage tanks can be found are: petroleum producing and refining, petrochemical and chemical manufacturing, bulk storage and transfer operations, other industries consuming or producing liquids and vapors.
Steel detailing, the process of creating steel structure concept drawings, plays an important role in the construction industry. This process creates engineered drawings steel fabricators and erectors use that indicate size, orientation, and location in a three-dimensional space. These detailed plans allow the fabricator to build steel pieces per your design and make it possible for the erector to install the pieces on site. Steel detailing can provide drawings for an array of objects, including trusses and columns, used in building a variety of structures. Getting these drawings done correctly is crucial for a project’s success.
As a purchasing manager, you will spend a lot of time evaluating outsourcing manufacturing facilities trying to find the perfect fit for your business. Selecting a custom metal fabrication company takes time and a unique understanding of the sector; you need to consider factors such as quality, on time delivery, and price. The decisions you make influence the operations of the entire company.
Solvents play an important role in industrial manufacturing, processing, and certain lab applications. They can expedite or retard drying times, thin out solutions, clean/disinfect raw materials, and boost fuel performance. Custom distillation equipment gives companies the ability to separate crucial solvents for cost savings and workflow efficiency.
Many businesses rely on efficient, safe, and performance-ready machines, including computer electronics, robotics systems, and mechanical equipment. Any company can lose time and money because of hardware malfunctioning and user-involved accidents. Choosing custom metal fabrication machine guards often prove invaluable in protecting machinery and workers from harm. Invest in the right kind of machine guard to avoid machinery-related risks.
If you’re in the market for fabrication, it’s important that you start with a good idea of how to acquire an accurate estimate. If you set out with vague plans and not enough questions and answers, you’re going to fall into one of the many pitfalls of fabrication estimates. Whether you’re hiring a team for the simplest of welding projects or to produce cutting-edge technology, keep these six common pitfalls in mind.
