Metal fabrications

Inspection of Metal Fabrications

From CNC punch profiling and laser cutting both sheet metal and metal tube, subcomponents are expertly welded into metal fabrications overseen by a qualified welding inspector with non-destructive testing (NDT) facilities on site.  Welding jigs and fixtures are manufactured to ensure correct alignment of parts before metal fabrication and welding.

Robotic Welding

Hydram Sheet Metalwork employs three Panasonic PerformArc robot welding cells to ensure consistency and economy on longer production runs of custom sheet metal fabrications and metal products.  All three cells are equipped with electric turntables allowing maximum productivity.  The largest system has rotary manipulators allowing workpieces to be turned independently of the robot position.

Maximum welding robot capacity for components is 150kg, 2200mm long for metal fabrication and welding.
