Equipment

We have a well equipped welding facility with the capability to weld aluminum, stainless steel, mild steel, magnesium etc. Additionally, we can cut metal using either flame or plasma cutting methods. Additional metal cutting capabilities consist of drilling, milling, turning, surface grinding, sawing and automated cutting.  Plastic thermoforming is also available.

Stay tuned as we are updating this page with our new equipment!
