Being a custom metal fabricator is one of the most exciting and rewarding undertakings one can be involved in. It means being a critical part of so many industries—providing creative solutions to companies ranging from mining to construction, and oil to architecture.
As a fabricator, we get to work with leaders in their field and true American innovators. It also means working with some of the most creative and talented people in the world, and having the opportunity to be creative in the process.
For instance, we recently had the chance to work with an artist, helping to design a beautiful sculpture that is now prominently on display near the United Center in Chicago.
This artist came to us with a vision for the sculpture. They provided drawings and CAD files, and we worked closely with them to create a design plan: to plasma cut two separate plates on our large plasma table and weld them together into one large fabrication.
The torch came down and cut out areas of the metal piece, cutting specifically to the project’s design, in one-inch-thick carbon steel. Two panels were created, each panel measuring 10 feet tall and eight feet wide. We then welded the fabrication and upon final inspection and approval, it was sent to be painted and installed.
In the end, the result was a beautiful metal sculpture that matched the initial design and was expertly made and crafted, whose aesthetics matched its quality. It serves as a great example of work that is not only the epitome of fine metal workmanship, but also a piece of art—something that can be enjoyed for generations.
We love having the opportunity to make our work enjoyable to so many others and making an artistic dream a reality.
