30” Roll Form line with ERW welding for production of closed sections

ROLL FORMING

We have invested in the latest roll-forming production equipment to form sheet metal into shapes with closer tolerances. All tube is sized to precise tolerances promoting high-strength and good surface finish properties to produce open profile and welded closed sections.

PARTS MANUFACTURING

Our value-added capabilities include punching, cutting, bending, piercing, notching, chamfering, swaging/forming, part identification (marking/etching), roll-forming, custom fabrication, welding, painting and fiber optic tube lasers. We also manufacture tube with laser welded tubular blank technology to produce high diameter thickness ratios (200:1).
