Metal Fabrication is a big part of OFAB’s business. We have been doing it for over 30 years and have seen many challenges. We know what it takes to get the job done from small to major fabrications.
There are many disciplines involved in metal fabrication. At OFAB we try to cover them all. You will see information on the major areas here including:
Our fully automated band saw machines with cutting capacities up to 18” x 27” enable us to process structural sheets and tubing. Besides supporting our in-house machining and fabrication capabilities, these machines also enable us to meet the specific saw cutting demands of OEMs and other industrial customers. We have over 3 decades of experience in manufacturing saw-cut parts from materials such as aluminum, stainless steel, and copper.
OFAB’s Hyd-Mech production metal sawing equipment can handle materials up to 8,000 lbs in weight. Horizontal and vertical angular adjustments can be made to our compound miter saw cutting machines. These sawing machines enable us to cut accurate miters and crosscuts on workpieces.
We perform metal fabrication, saw cutting, and other processing operations in compliance with AS 9100A standards. Saw-cut parts can be finished by plating, powder coating, anodizing, and painting. Warehouse facility is also available for customers to stock products.
We bend and form sheet metal of any intricate profile. 40 to 400 ton CNC press brakes at our job shop allow us to handle diverse production volumes. Engine mounts used in fire and mining applications, mounting brackets, steel or aluminum frames, and several other products are precision bent at our facility.
Sheet material with thickness up to 3⁄4” and width up to 12’ can be bent on our CNC press brakes. Our custom fabrication shop is also equipped with cranes and forklifts to handle large parts. We also perform a variety of secondary operations such as laser cutting, welding, plating, and heat-treating. Based on the application requirements, we undertake engineering and assembly too.
We have over 30 years of experience in producing a wide range of plasma cut parts, including engine enclosures, mounting brackets, and emergency response vehicle parts. Our fabrication shop is equipped with 1 oxy-fuel torch cutting machines and 1 CNC plasma cutting machines to meet your prototyping as well as low to medium volume production requirements. The plasma-cutting machines can cut sheets with thicknesses up to 6”.
Our CNC plasma cutting equipment can create clean cuts on electrically conductive materials with virtually no slag. OFAB specializes in processing sheets, plates, and bar stock of materials such as aluminum, stainless steel, and carbon steel. Using our CNC plasma burning machines, we fabricate custom parts from metal sheets up to 126’ x 152’ in size and 10,000 lbs in weight.
At our one-stop fabrication shop, we also paint, and powder coat plasma cut parts. Our skilled staff converts your drawings into specific part geometries for CNC machine control.
Using CNC punching machines, OFAB fabricates punch-profiled parts such as panels, frames, and sub-frames. Our fabrication shop has CNC punching machines as well as manual punch presses with tonnage capacities up to 120 tons and punch diameters up to 4”. We also have two 60-ton Iron Worker machines for punching and shearing operations. These machines enable us to meet light-duty and complex metal fabrication needs. We work with steel, aluminum, stainless steel, brass, and copper sheets with thicknesses up to 1 1/4”. OFAB also specializes in cutting slots, louvers, and special features on materials such as nylon, rubber, and vinyl.
OFAB uses 60 HP Calypso Hammer Head water jets for high-speed cutting. Using 60,000-psi pumps, we perform intense cutting at tight tolerances. We can cut most metals, as well as fiberglass, nylon, rubber, and stone. Sheets up to 120″ X 240″ in size can be accommodated in our Calypso water jets.
Our water jet cutting services are environmentally safe and clean. Superfine finish can be obtained in our water jet cutting, thereby avoiding additional finishing. Water jet cut sheet material is bent, rolled, or welded to create different parts. We also perform painting, galvanizing, and heat treating operations on the cut parts.
