THE SERVICES WE OFFER
CNC cutting is the process of using a laser beam or a hot plasma to gradually remove material from a chosen type of sheet metal and thickness. Some of the many creative ways we use this service is to create a custom decorative wall piece, a professional business sign, or even a 3D object assembled from sheet metal.
Coating & Plating
Both Powder coating and Electroplating make metal components more attractive, durable, and stronger. When deciding between the two, you have to consider the finished product’s intended use. The more critical the part or component is in an industry, the more metal plating services will be likely in order.
Welding is a fabrication process whereby two or more parts are fused together. At AB Industries we offer both TIG and MIG welding. TIG welds are better for thinner metals and smaller projects because they produce precise and clean welds. MIG welds work well with larger projects with thick metals
Form & Fold
Form and folding is a technique of metalworking whereby metal is folded. This process gives a metal product its shape. We a machine to bend (or fold) the metal to reach its intended form. The benefits of using this robust and efficient machine is that it can fold small intricacies and create a variety of shapes for many day-to-day products.
Rolling is a metal forming process in which metal is passed through one or more pairs of rolls to reduce the thickness, to make the thickness uniform, and/or to impart a desired mechanical property. The concept is similar to the rolling of dough. The main objective of rolling is to decrease the thickness of the metal.
Guillotining is a technique of metalworking whereby metal is cut into two through the use of a machine called the Guillotine. The machine cuts through metal similarly to a pair of scissors, and uses 'square edge' blades to ensure a smooth cut is made.
Pressings is the process of inserting flat sheet metal into a specialist machine often referred to as a power press, but also sometimes called a stamping press. This metal is then formed into the correct shape(s) through the use of a metal die. A die is an implement which is pushed into the sheet metal. This forces the sheet metal to take the shape of the die.
The hot dip galvanizing process is relatively simple. It involves cleaning steel and immersing it in molten zinc to obtain a coating. This coating is a protective zinc which is generally applied to either steel or iron in order to prevent premature rust and corrosion.
