OTHER SERVICES

We have specialised suction lifting devices to handle / lift  sheets and minimize scratches and unwanted marks.

We use Autodesk and Solid works suites to ensure perfect drawing outcomes especially when handling customer’s drawings.

Our design team leader is trade qualified and has an engineering background with professional trade certificate ‘ in design software ’ and possesses  more than 10 years’ experience in the industry.

LASER CUTTING

Maximum thickness is a balance between machine capacity and optimum quality.
Maximum sheet size: 3048 x 1524mm
Maximum thickness:
–  Mild Steel             – 16mm
–   Stainless Steel     – 12mm
–   Aluminum           – 12mm
–    Copper               – 6mm
–    Brass                  – 6mm

We can use 2D / 3D and DXF files. But the main files we use are DXF, DWG and most 3D files, including Solid works part files, Inventor part files, Step files, IGES files and so on. If you have files other than those mentioned we’ll try our best but we can’t guarantee it will be compatible with our systems and software.

If it’s a 1 mm aluminum sheet we can go up to 1 mm dia hole  If its stainless steel its different but in general we assume the bore to be about 75 % of the sheet thickness.

Pricing is based on time taken combined with material value. There is an initial set up charge, laser cut time and cost of materials. That means a one off custom part will be more expensive than a larger production run.

We are proud to say that we are using the latest in Fiber Lasers and CNC Brake Press machinery.  We use these machines because of  their precision, reliability, finish, and the back up service we receive. Our laser machinery is powered by a fibre optic 2kw IPG laser power source which allows us to cut quickly and efficiently whilst maintaining the specified tolerances required in the industry.

Our manufacturers specify the repetitive accuracy to +/-0.025mm and positioning accuracy to +/-0.050mm

A burr is common when laser cutting aluminum. But we need to be careful that we use the right cutting gas . Be it Nitrogen / Oxygen /or compressed air . Depending on the material thickness say 3mm and under, we cut burr free. When the material thickness is 4mm and over, we use Nitrogen which gives us a clean cut finish.

FOLDING

We have a 3100mm 110T machine capable of folding 3000mm of 6mm mild steel. The smaller the length, the thicker we can fold. We have tooling to fold 0.5mm material right through to 16mm material.

We are proud to use an Yawei CNC press brake which we installed brand new.  The machine has a full 2D -7 axis back gauge,  CNC hydraulic crowning, hydraulic upper and lower tool clamping, offline programming software which automatically corrects incorrect K-Factor’s/bend radiuses and the list goes on. There has been no expense spared on our machines and tooling .

Yes – in fact we would like that.

Yes . We can send you the required data to ensure your parts come out correct.

FABRICATION

We have specialist fabricators who are skilled in common welding techniques on most common materials, including

–   Stainless Steel TIG and MIG welding

–   Aluminum TIG and MIG welding

–   Mild Steel TIG and MIG welding

We use our electro-polishing machine to minimize acid staining.

Not yet – we will be getting one by the end of this year . We are sure this will increase our speed of  fabrication for our customers.

Yes – we have specialized machines to carry out these processes.

Yes . we have experienced staff who can do this . You name the micron, we’ll do it.

POWDER COATING

Yes, we can . This gives our customers added benefits thereby reducing secondary lead time delays, admin costs and double handling. It would be more economical to let us powder coat your  product when we make it.

We offer  a superior powder coating finish. We are a metal manufacturing supplier but our sister company carries out our powder coating work.

We use Dulux powder coating range but can use others where required. We often get custom colours made for large quantities or ongoing orders where we’re required to match a particular company colour.

We do when necessary. We use a subcontractor with whom we have had a longstanding relationship. They provide us excellent service. But we still project manage this for our customers to ensure the process is seamless and that lead times and costs are kept to a minimum.

FINISHING

Other than powder coating, we  subcontract work to companies with whom we have had long standing relationships.

Below is a list of finishing services we provide .

Galvanising
Zinc/Electroplating
Spray Painting
Anodizing
Electro-polishing
Bead blasting

We care about your product as much as you do, so we ensure the highest levels of quality are maintained.
