Capabilities

An overview of our equipment:

  • 3 nearly identical Trumpf flat sheet laser cutters. Largest capacity 5 foot x 10 foot x 1/2 inch thick sheet. Trumpf is based in Germany and has grown to be the largest machine tool manufacturer in the world, largely on the basis of their superior laser technology. Trumpf invests nearly 15% of its revenue into research and development.
  • 1 Trumpf Punch/Laser combination machine. Punched holes are usually faster to make and more accurate than laser cut holes. For perforating, the punch will usually outperform the laser. The combination of punch and laser on one machine frame allows the best of both technologies.
  • 75 Watt YAG laser marker.  Engraves text, graphics or bar code on metal parts.
  • 4 press brakes for bending metal. The largest can accept tools up to 10 feet long.
  • 12 foot shear with the capacity to cut 3/8 steel plate.
  • 4 foot x 16 Ga powered roll.  Initial pinch style.
  • 2 foot x 16 Ga Urethane roll. With small cylinder attachment for small diameter tubing.
  • PEM hardware insertion press with extensive inventory of PEM and equivalent hardware.
  • CNC and manual milling machines.
  • Manual lathe and the usual tool room machines.
  • Welding Machines. We have multiple MIG welding machines as well as manual TIG and manual and automated plasma welding machines.

 

We generally stock significant quantities of sheet metal in the following grades:

Aluminum Alloys:

  • 5052-H32: Every standard commercial thickness from .025 through .250
  • 2024-T3: Most every thickness from .025 through .125
  • 6061-T6: Most thicknesses from .040 through .250

Steel:

  • Cold rolled: Every gauge size from 24 Ga through 16 Ga .024 through .059
  • Hot rolled and pickled: Every standard thickness from 14 Ga through 1/2 inch

Stainless steel:

  • 304: We stock most every thickness from 22 Ga (.030) through 1/4 inch
  • Most of the lighter thicknesses of 304 we also stock in sanded with a # 4 finish and PVC coated. This is the finish common in commercial kitchens.
  • 409: We stock 1.5 and 1.8 mm thickness which are most commonly used in engine exhaust systems.
  • 316, 321: We have some stock in these less common alloys, but can obtain more quickly.

We identify our material and maintain a paper trail for most of the sheet material that we have in stock and can provide “certs” on request.
