When you think of the dirty and mud-covered hills of the motocross sport, you can typically see riders competing and doing stunts wearing helmets. You may think that it’s only boys in this sport but there is a bright blonde ponytail under the helmet of one rider from Swanton.
Custom Fabrication and Welding News
Swanton Welding was featured in a segment on WTOL's Your Day at 9. Swanton Welding's Chuck Morgan and Bill Zeiter were interviewed by WTOL's Amanda Fey about the welding, fabrication, and career opportunities available at Swanton Welding's Main and Heavy Fabrication facilities in Ohio.
Swanton Welding is excited to announce their partnership with Swanton High School to open the N.D. Zeiter School of Technology.
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 typically industries consuming or producing good, liquids, and or vapors. Industries like petroleum either in producing or manufacturing petroleum, chemical engineering and or manufacturing, and the agriculture industry for bulk storage.
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.
