CUSTOM SHEET METAL FABRICATION PRODUCTS
One of our accounts came to us with a cardboard model for a new idea of instrumentation in the Particle Analysis business. Their forte is in the engineering of the inner workings of this instrumentation, and not so much for the sheet metal housing required.
Prescott Metal helped developed the prints for this rather complex sheet metal housing, produced a working prototype in short order, and helped the customer bring this new product to life. We are now doing the production runs for this customer.
One of our customers produces plastic vacuum hoses for a variety of markets, and was setting up a new manufacturing line. They were in need of a fabricated truss, 54 feet long that was the main component of this new manufacturing line. This truss needed to be very flat from one end to the other, and they didn’t want to go overseas where they had purchased this truss before which was very expensive and with a very long lead-time.
We worked closely with this customer, and developed a manufacturing plan that allowed us to meet the demanding needs of this product. We needed to minimize any twisting or deflection from the many welds required. Today the customer is turning out many hoses, and is ready to add another line. He will be coming to us for the next truss.
One of our accounts was producing testing equipment for the computer industry. We were fabricating steel tubular frames, with stainless steel panels covering the openings. This customer was looking for a different finish other than the standard #4 grained finish on the stainless panels to set their equipment apart from their competition. They wanted something much more course, and other suppliers weren’t able to give them the desired look.
Prescott Metal was able to develop a method that was able to achieve the desired look, the customer was ecstatic, and Prescott Metal built a reputation for finishing stainless panels that still carries throughout this industry today.
