Fabrication Structural Steel - Plate works - Piping

Our fully integrated contract manufacturing and machining services positions us as a leading supplier of large fabrications, heavy weldments and assembly services to the most demanding customers in the world. These large fabrications and assemblies include base plates and foundations for industrial-sized compressors, generators and turbines; large oil pans, precision heat platens for plywood and strand board production, sanitary pressure vessels, and hydraulic presses. With more than 20,000 square meters of manufacturing space located in Gauteng, Custom is ideally suited to support OEMs from the Gauteng. Complete list of fabrication capabilities and  equipment.

Material Processing
We can provide all materials required for your job eliminating the need to supply your own steel or order custom sizes to be delivered. Our multiple burn tables effeciently size raw materials for production. Capabilities include:

  • Burning (Plasma, Oxy-fuel, Beveling)

  • Forming

  • Sawing


Welding Capabilities

Welding and large-scale weldments are central to our fabrication process. Typically, manufacturing parts and components from steel plate requires cutting and welding versus bending metal. With nearly 30 certified welders and sophisticated fit-up structures, Custom is capable of welding large components while holding vary close tolerence. We're well-versed in all forms of welding including: 

  • Tungsten Inert Gas (Tig)

  • GMAW (Mig)

  • FCAW (Flux Core)

  • SAW (Sub Arc Welding) 

  • Welding Overlays  -  Corrosion resistant welding (Inconel)    

Robotic Welding

We've invested in robotic welding to maximize efficiency in repetitive assembly of standard pieces. Our robotic welding is also used on critical applications where components must be defect-free. To learn more about our robotic welding and how it can benefit your products.

 

Precision Fit-Up

Having a proper foundation to begin manufacturing is critical when you're welding large scale components. We have engineered complete floor or base systems that can hold close tolerance, squareness, flatness and parallelism. These unique fit-up capabilities are the foundation of our establishing "best practices."

Material Finishing

At Custom Engineering Company, we take the environment very seriously and only use EPA approved products.  We only use products, that when properly mixed, release volatiles into the environment that are within legal limits.
