FABRICATION OF HEAVY GAUGE STEEL BASE WELDMENT FOR THE MACHINE TOOL INDUSTRY
GK Metal Fabrication was approached by a customer in the machine tooling industry to fabricate a steel base weldment. The weldment’s A36 steel was plasma cut (Messer 400 amp high definition bevel plasma) and then machined. We then formed the steel at a 135° angle using a 1000 ton x 30 foot press brake. The 17′ long, 15′ wide and 3′ high weldment was then stress relieved and shot blasted. GK Metal Fabrication was able to hold tightest tolerances of +/- 1/32″ throughout the fabrication process. Each of the client’s 7, 41,000 lbs base weldments underwent a magnetic particle weld inspection.
