Large fabrications can be a problem for companies that do not have the expertise or equipment to handle them, none of which is a problem for Industrial Maintenance Welding & Machining. We pride ourselves on our large fabrication skills, which were all called into play when a scrap metal customer asked us to manufacture a steel scrap shredder. Scrap metal shredders must function in an incredibly harsh environment as they reduce all kinds of metal into small pieces, and the design and manufacture of this equipment had to reflect the ruggedness of their application. We used our customer's engineering and horizontal boring mill-working from customer specifications and 2D CAD drawings-to manufacture components for the shredders, whose final dimensions were 20' wide, 24' long and 35' high, and weighed a whopping 300,000 lbs. We then welded the 6" steel plate into the final assembly to tight tolerances of 1/16" before paint was applied. Dimensional and visual inspection and functionality testing were used to confirm the operation and quality of the finished shredders. Our skilled staff showed remarkable flexibility because we were required to accommodate several modifications during the construction process, which actually saved our customer three weeks of field assembly and fitment. We now assemble two to five of these steel scrap shredders per year, which takes about three to six months to complete.

Don't trust the fabrication of heavy duty equipment to a lightweight manufacturer. Contact Industrial Maintenance Welding & Machining for further information.
