Laser Cutting

Laser Cutting

Our lasers range in power up to 4000 watts with the capability of cutting mild steel up .750" thick, stainless steel up to .500" and aluminum up to .250". We can process blanks up to a maximum size of 60" x 120".

Brake Forming

Our brake presses range in tonnage up 220 metric tons and are capable of forming mild steel parts up to 13 feet wide and .500" in thickness.  All of our brake presses have CNC backgages capable of 8-axis movement.  We have a wide variety of flexible tooling to accommodate most part configurations.

Brake Forming



Our weld department is capable of MIG, TIG, and Resistance Spot Welding of mild steel, aluminum and stainless.  Our welders are qualified through and in-house welder qualification program based on AWS D1.1 to ensure consistent quality and reliable welds.

Hardware Insertion

We have the capability to install various hardware items such as threaded standoffs, self locking nuts, and blind standoffs, as well as most products offered by Penn Engineering or equivalent.
