Here at G.E. Mathis, we pride ourselves on the ability to manufacture a wide range of high-quality components of all shapes and sizes. By staying informed about the latest and greatest manufacturing equipment and processes, we can stay ahead of the competition and do what other manufacturers cannot. One area in which we excel is the fabrication of long parts. This is something that many manufacturers are not capable of doing; our equipment and capabilities offer us a distinct advantage in this market segment.
When making long parts, some manufacturers, due to equipment limitations, may have to fabricate short pieces first. If you want a piece that’s 30 feet long and a manufacturer can only fabricate pieces that are 10 feet long, they would need to form that long part by welding together three different pieces. The problem is that all three of these pieces may not come out exactly the same, leading to the fabrication of a long part with flaws that could greatly lower the quality of the piece.
On the other hand, we’re able to form longer components in just one piece. This is thanks to our lineup of six precision press brakes that can easily handle lengths of 20 to 40 feet. This means that the customer gets a higher-quality, more consistent part in one piece to the length. The whole long part is completely uniform and our manufacturing process eliminates the middle seam in a formed piece, which allows us to cut down on secondary processes that cost more time and money.
So when you need uniform, high-quality long parts, come to the experts. We can make all sorts of long parts, like angles, channels, bump formed segments, and cone segments, and we have experience working with a wide range of materials, from carbon, stainless steel, and aluminum, as well as alloy steel.
