Materials for
Custom Sheet Metal Fabrication

Our 33,400 square foot facility uses a wide variety of metal types in contract fabrication. To provide high-quality, abrasion-resistant solutions, we proudly partner with Hardox and Strenx. The primary types of materials we use for sheet metal fabrication include:

  • Steel (AR 400 / AR 500, Qt100, 44W, 80W)
  • Stainless steel
  • Aluminum

Our custom fabricators can also work with additional material types such as bronze. Let us know your material and metal fabrication requirements and we will build to exact specification.

Metal Fabrication Equipment

We combine computerized fabrication equipment and traditional methods to fabricate parts, equipment and machinery to your specifications. Our advanced machines perform these fabrication processes:

  • CNC plasma cutting: In applications that require precision cutting, we use our STI-200-HD with Burny 10 controls. This CNC plasma cutter can cut materials up to 6 inches in thickness using computerized directions, with average cuts of about 1.5 inches.
  • Saw cutting: When cutting larger pieces of metal, we use the Hydmech S-20A band saw to cut heavy-duty applications up to 13 inches tall and 18 inches wide. This scissor-style band saw can cut both rectangular and round shapes or prepare a component for detailed cutting.
  • Waterjet cutting: Our Flow Mach 3 4020B waterjet cutter provides tight cutting tolerances for precision applications. It can handle materials up to 7 inches in thickness and uses FlowMaster PC-based controls.
  • CNC machining: For machining applications, we have an extensive tooling and CNC machining capacity, ranging from CNC lathes, milling machines and 4-5 Axis boring machines. In addition, we use advanced manufacturing software MasterCam to boost productivity and quality builds.
  • Welding: Our welding shop specializes in stick, TIG, MIG, Flux-Core, Metal-Core, hardwire, and full penetration (full-pen) welding. We are steel, stainless steel and aluminum certified to CSA standard W47.1 Fusion Welding of Steel and W47.2 Fusion Welding of Aluminum. Our AWS certification is to standard D1.1 Structural Steel and D1.2 Structural Aluminum. We can combine methods as needed to create the appropriate bond for your project.
  • Forming: There are no limits to what we can bend. Ranging from 170 to 500 Tonne bending capability, our most common metal forming projects are 0.5 inches thick and 10 feet long. If required, we have the capacity to customize bends above and beyond this.
