Our welding shop is equipped with a number of different welding machines, these allow us to do a wide variety of different types of welding in many different materials. Our smallest welding machine is a Lincoln 180 amp MIG welder. We used this welder for small and thin steel jobs. We also have a 250 amp AC/DC TIG welder, with this machine we are able to do steel, stainless steel and aluminum TIG welding. Our newest welder is a Fronius trans process solution intelligent welder, it is absolutely a state-of-the-art machine.

It allows us to weld large variety of different steels in all positions using a variety of different consumables and producing superior welds every time. We also have a 100 amp plasma cutter which can be used manually, or be coupled to a 4’ x 8’ computerized cutting table. With this table we can produce a large number of industrial parts up to ¾” thick with the plasma cutter, or we can change to a victor cutting torch and cut anything up to 3 inches thick.
Our hydraulic shop is equipped to handle a large number of hydraulic and pneumatic cylinder rebuilding and manufacturing jobs. We are equipped with a test bench, and a large number of tools purpose built to help us disassemble and reassemble hydraulic cylinders.
