Essential Fabrications was recently contacted by a leading supplier of bodyshop and garage equipment to ask if we could carry out metal fabrication in order to manufacture some bespoke workshop equipment.
Based in Morpeth, Northumberland, Stanners Equipment Limited has a Partner Company, Stanners Specialised Services which is an Institute of the Motor Industry Approved Awards Centre. This includes on site British Standards weld testing, boron steel awareness courses and QAA Certified and bespoke welder training.
Essential Fabrications was asked to fabricate and supply a pneumatic ram which would be used to test the quality and strength of welding being done by those taking the BS Standard accreditation.
Using a variety of metal fabrication techniques, we manufactured all metalwork including the metal casings for the hydraulic rams, the hydraulic rams, self locking jaws and all mounting brackets and pipework connectors.
Essential Fabrications then built the assembly which will be used to pull welded assemblies apart to test the welding and the point at which the welded joints break to ensure they would pass the BS standard.
Commenting, Eliot Saxton said, “This is an unusual project, but demonstrates our ability to manufacture a range of components in accordance to highly technical design drawings. The finished metal fabrication is of exceptionally high quality and the finished assembly will ensure the welding work carried out by those being assessed meet British Standard requirements.”
Essential Fabrications is a trusted fabricator for many leading engineering and manufacturing companies who use us on an outsourced basis during busy periods, to cover holiday periods and also when project requires fabricating methods that are outside of their normal equipment set ups. Outsourcing fabrication to a trusted specialist third party helps to maintain high standards as also helps to prevent workforces from being pushed too hard and therefore forced to compromise on the end finish of the product in order to meet a time deadline. This approach also helps to improve staff morale and ensures that the manufactured product is delivered to the end client in a timely fashion.
If your business is working at full capacity and you are in need of outsourced fabrication, or you have an unusual project needing our specialist expertise, please contact us.
