Steel Fabrication

With over 30 years of experience in designing and fabricating steel, stainless steel and allied products, ML Industries is well equipped with the knowledge and expertise to fulfill any of our customers needs. Our skilled workers are experienced with the various fabrication processes of fencing, grating and railing.

Our team of experienced and knowledgeable workers and supervisor provide customers with the following metalwork services:





Cutting





V-cut/ Planar Processing


Produces sharp edged profiles with a minimum radius to allow for easier bending that are impossible to accomplish with conventional bending machines. This technology is designed to score straight lines in metal sheets without cutting them completely.




Shearing


Shearing is also known as die cutting. It is a process which cuts stock without the formation of chips. This process does not involve the use of burning or melting. During the shearing process, an upper blade and a lower blade are forced past each other with the space between them determined by a required offset. Materials that are commonly sheared are Aluminum, brass, bronze, mild steel and also stainless steel.




Band Saw Cutting


A band saw has a long blade with a continuous band of toothed metal stretched between two or more wheels that is used to cut material. Using a band saw produces uniform cutting because of the evenly distributed tooth load and also the ability to cut irregular or curved shapes like a jigsaw.




Oxyacetylene Auto Cut


A torch is used to heat metal to its kindling temperature, then a stream of oxygen is trained on the metal to burn it into a metal oxide that flows out of the kerf as slag. This process is semi-automated with our machinery to allow for highly precised cuts according to templates.



Forming






Sheet Bending


Produces a v-shape , u-shape or channel shape along a straight axis in ductile materials, most commonly sheet metal. Typical products that are made like this are boxes such as electrical enclosures and rectangular duct work.




CNC Pipe Bending


Produce bends in multiple directions and angles. Round, square and rectangular tubes or pipes are possible to be bent to meet job specifications. A pipe bending machines is used to create a variety of single or multiple bends and to shape the piece into the desired form. These processes can be used to form complex shapes out of different types of ductile metal tubing.




CNC Turret Punching


By using a variety of strokes with several different tools in turn, a turret press may make a wide variety of parts without having to first make a specialized press tool for that task. This saves both time and money, allowing rapid prototyping or for low volume production to start without much tooling delays.




Punch Press


Punching is a metal forming process that uses a punch press to force a tool, called a punch, through the workpiece to create a hole via shearing. The punch often passes through the workpiece into a die. A scrap slug from the hole is deposited into the die in the process.




Notching


Commonly performed before joining light-gauge tubes to make a tee or similar joint, as by welding. Either one or both tubes may be notched before assembly.

 



Machining


Machining is the removal of material from a workpiece using multiple processes including cutting into clearly defined geometry, abrasive processes and nontraditional machining processes.




Ring Forming/ Rolling


Ring rolling produces a precise ring of larger diameter and a reduced cross section by rolling a ring of smaller diameter. One idle roller and one driven roller acts on either side of the ring’s cross section in this process.



Welding






MIG – Gas Metal Arc Welding


An electric arc forms between a consumable wire electrode and the workpiece metals, which heats the workpiece metals, causing them to melt and join.

TIG – Tungsten Inert Gas


The weld is produced using a non-consumable tungsten electrode. The weld area and electrode is protected from oxidation or other atmospheric contamination by an inert shielding gas, and a filler metal is normally used.

ARC – Electrode


Electricity is used to join metal to metal by creating enough heat to melt metal, and the melted metals when cool result in a binding of the metals. It is a type of welding that uses a welding power supply to create an electric arc between an electrode and the base material to melt the metals at the welding point.
