Aluminium Fabrication industry is a huge concept where Aluminium is the raw material for the process of building or rebuilding anything from scratch or semi-built materials. This Aluminium fabrication includes laser cutting, metal bending, shaping, welding, reforming, assembling the Aluminium for specific needs.
From automobiles to space shuttles and solar panels, everything has at least a fraction of Aluminium in them, which is why the use of Aluminium is not likely to decrease in upcoming decades. Instead, it’s increasing and also every day new and new fabricators are finding their way into the everlasting industry. But one thing is for sure that only a few of them provides you with the best services with the assurance of quality of material and the quality of built and we are one of them. In fact, we are one of the pioneers in Aluminium fabrication, with years of experience since 1991.
Since then, we are constantly working towards developing a healthy relationship with our clients by satisfying them with the best service with quality in built and material. That’s why our track records is rich and versatile.
With a wide range of efficient tools and a skilled workforce, we intend to deliver the best machinery and products.
We also understand that each project requires a different perspective, effort, machinery, etc. and that’s why we are equipped with some of the best tools and equipment, operated by some of the most creative, and professional hands.
Cutting, Bending, and Assembling
With our efficient and versatile tools and skilled operators, we do the entire production of your project, starting from cutting, the Aluminium sheet, bending it as required and then assembling the pieces together to form the final product.
Besides, we consider everything that affects the characteristics Aluminium while cutting. For example, Aluminium is a reflective metal. That’s why, when CO2 laser cutting is used for cutting a piece from Aluminium, we ensure that the laser doesn’t reflect away from the surface and damage the other sides or parts of the project.
Another 2 important piece of information about Aluminium is they have a good thermal conductivity and a low melting point. This is why the Aluminium sheet we use to develop your project, is taken care of. We ensure that the heat at the cutting place doesn’t reach to Aluminum’s melting point, keeping the production safe & secure and the cuttings precise.
There are different types of machines available to cut Aluminium and among them, we use laser cutting.
Laser cutting machines are mostly known for cutting Aluminium. It is simply a machine that can direct the laser beam into the material in the laser cutting tools’ bed. The light beam heats out exact area while the nozzle pushes cutting gas onto the Aluminium to vaporize it, where it needs the cutting. This leaves a clear-finished edge. For more précised cutting, we turn down the laser to a minimum so that we get delicate cuttings done.
There are generally two type of bending that we do, bottom bending and air bending.
Bottom Bending: It is a simple operation of the punch or tool that is mounted in the ram press brakes. In this type of bending, the workpiece is forced down in the bottom of dies, which is mounted to the bed over the press brake. Typically, the tools is forced slightly closer to its die than sheet’s thickness. The overbending “coins” the metal and uniformly “seats’ the bend. The advantage of this bending is that the accuracy of bending depends mostly on the tools itself, rather than largely on the press brake.
Air bending: Air bending is a simple process of pressing down material into the die, just enough to achieve your desired angle. The material isn’t pressed up to the bottom of the die, which leaves an air gap. It is preferred between the two different bending types because, in this method, the die needs to change only when the thickness of the material is changed. But the main disadvantage of air bending is that the bending accuracy vastly depends on material thickness.
But most of the time, TIG welding is done to assemble in our facility, especially for Aluminium. Here is something you might want to know about TIG welding.
TIG or Tungsten Inert Gas is a welding process, which is known for utilizing non-consumable tungsten electrodes with the inert gas (usually, Argon). As Tungsten is a rare and provides a high purity, the welding quality is quite impressive, especially for Aluminium sheets. That’s why TIG welding is the most popular welding technique for Aluminium these days.
With TIG welding, the temperature is raised by running the electric current via any tungsten electrode, which creates an arc to be used for melting metal wire and create weld pool.
But why do we use TIG welding?
There are many different types and methods of welding. But we only use TIG welding? Why not MIG or Arc Welding?
Advantages of TIG welding:
- Filler rod is not necessary
- AC polarity of Magnesium and Aluminium
- Suitable for any welding position
- Better welding quality
- Appropriate for very thin sheet of Aluminium
- Fusion welding is possible
- High efficacies
- No spatter
- No slag
- Suitable for different materials
Why we are the best?
There are few distinct characteristics and motto of our company, which sets us apart from all the other competitors in the business.
That’s why we take the liberty to go through some evaluation test, which we came out victorious without any raised eyebrows. But you wouldn’t need the certifications to get to know our quality assurance, our previous clients will tell you about our service.
As we have mentioned earlier, there are tons of other Aluminium fabricators who have been in the business for last few years. But in this kind of delicate and sensitive work where even a millimeter of mismatch can ruin the entire project, experience takes the lead. That’s why we are still one of the biggest metal fabricators with skilled workforce and versatile equipment. Thanks to our years of experience in Aluminium fabrication, we are a name or trust, quality, and precision to our clients.
