Companies are always looking for ways to increase profits and decrease spending. But it is extremely important to save money where you can without compromising the quality or integrity of the product.
Custom Fabrication and Welding News
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?
Key qualities of a successful project manager include integrity, vision, enthusiasm, competence, composure and team building. Swanton Welding project manager, Kody Kessler, embodies all of these traits and many more.
The absolute last thing you want in a fabrication project is for a steel structure to fatigue and fail. Quality steel could be the secret to successfully avoiding this. The key is to make sure the materials you are using for your structural steel fabrication project possess the quality you want to deliver. After all, the quality of the end product is only as good as the quality of the material being used and the fabricator you work with.
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.
A key role is understanding what the customer wants from start to finish is the project manager. The project manager communicates all the needs from the customer’s vision to the shop floor, and then to final delivery. Understanding the complex nature of metal fabrication takes years of experience. Toby Curtis, a Swanton Welding project manager, has this experience and knowledge based off his 23 year career as a Swanton Welding employee. He works with Swanton clients once their fabrication project moves from the estimating department into production.
Mining uses many different devices, from conveyors to elevator lifts. These mechanisms require strength and flexibility, which steel can provide. Here are some things steel fabrication can provide for mining companies.
Ever-changing demands in the industry require advancements in machining processes and tools that can perform the job faster, better, and with more precision. We aim to stay ahead of the curve, getting the best equipment available to fill the needs of our customers. The newest addition to our machine arsenal is the Mazak VCN-530C, which addresses our most immediate and consistent machining needs.
Steel is integral to creating a fun, safe place to play. One such location is a water park, where families and friends can kick back and relax, splash in the water, or experience exhilarating water rides – all of which steel makes possible. The next time you’re standing in line for your favorite ride, look up. The beams holding up the structure are steel, a substance that allows engineers to design more inventive and fun water park creations. Steel’s strength and durability give the engineers freedom to create newer, better, more exciting rides.
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.
