We believe in precision and custom all metal fabrication in London, Ontario, a welding shop with separation of steel fabrication, stainless steel fabrication, aluminum fabrication. Most importantly, we provide one source fabrication service for custom metal fabrication projects. Furthermore, our custom metal fabrication service for precision fabrication project will suite your budget, project’s functionality and project’s utilization time. In fact, our precision fabrication projects are usually related to mechanical components, steel cast’s supports or aluminum cast’s supports.

Additionally, we also believe in our welding shop’s contribution to your fabrication project in following:

  1. overall fabrication rigidity,
  2. weld size,
  3. reduction of fabricated piece’s weight,
  4. maintenance of tolerances between structure’s mechanical components
  5. improvements in mechanical joints between metal fabrications containing at least two different metals and/or alloys

Not only we substantially contribute to our client’s designs of precision metal fabrications, but also reduce costs through practical fabrication solutions and reduction of bureaucracy in our welding shop in London, Ontario.

Complex fabrication projects

Our welding shop enthusiastically acquire complex fabrication projects that involve fabrication process consisting of joining multiple fabricated pieces into one unit. Within the whole process, we maintain precise tolerances. With our precise specialization in metal fabrication in London, Ontario, we undertake projects consisting of multiple metals and machined parts.

We perform custom metal fabrication’s orders from one unique fabricated piece to multiple same fabrications. We can do it as long as it will fit to our small metal fabrication shop in London, Ontario. Due to the small size of our fabrication shop and our specialization, we do not provide fabrication of structural elements used in construction industry. Unfortunately, clients from the construction industry have to look for a different supplier. 

Keeping this in mind, we welcome metal fabrication Toronto inquiries in regard to any other industry except structural steel elements. To initiate the process, please attach the drawings of your planned metal fabrication in your email. And we will provide our quote promptly.  If you do not posses engineering drawings, but you know what you want than please provide the sketch of your idea.

Small Fabrication Shop in precision metal fabrication in London, Ontario

Our fabrication shop specializes in precision metal fabrication of relatively small pieces that interact with each other. Or they interact with other fabrications or mechanical components. These fabricated pieces are interacting with each other in very tight fit tolerances. Our mechanical background and experience as industrial millwrights in variety of industries makes us a natural fit for precision fabrication.

We specialize in

  1. Custom aluminum fabrication
  2. Stainless steel fabrication
  3. Mild steel fabrication of weldments used outside of construction industry

The interactions and movement of fabrications influence how we approach the fabrication process. We always try to design the fabrication process in such a way to avoid any assembly issues. Furthermore, we also understand the cumulative inaccuracies effect on the assembly failure. Therefore, we sometimes recalculate the fabricated parameters to consider fixed and critical components. Fabrications within the precision metal fabrication concept are assembled in our metal fabrication shop in London, Ontario, many times prior delivery to customer.

Fabrication with metal art components

Metal fabrication with art components is one area where we excel. Our clients demand that our fabrications with metal art components look impressive. Moreover, they must make stunning effect. The process starts with the interview to familiarize ourselves with basic objectives of the metal fabrication purpose. Then we produce drawings that help visualize to the client our concepts. During the drawings stage we consult with artists that are familiar with particular art.

After the drawings stage is time for a modeling stage when we must maintain certain dimensions and obligatory functionalities. But we are not sure how the whole thing will look like and how certain components will interact. The metal artwork modeling form and important part of the whole modeling process. The metal artwork modeling gives us a perspective and dimensional coordination between metal artwork pieces and the functional components. It is paramount to us to exactly understand how the functional components interact with metal artwork. Our forger is consulted at this stage.

Once the modeling is done and approved then the metal fabrication and assembly of other components including forged components starts. We maintain the order of assembly during the metal fabrication process to make the final assembly as easy as possible. Please keep in mind that certain components delivery could be scheduled much in advance for easy installation on site.  

Custom metal fabrication in London Ontario

Custom metal fabrication lays at the base of many of our fabrication projects. Our customers can choose the metal they want us to make their fabrication. We do steel fabrication, aluminum fabrication and stainless-steel fabrications. Pending the metal choice for your fabrication, we approach these projects slightly differently. The approach differences for fabrication in particular metal originate from differences of

  1. welding consumables,
  2. welding parameters,
  3. joint preparations, and
  4. warpage characteristics.

Moreover, the specific metal fabrications do not interact with each other and each project runs its course separately. However, some fabrication projects have involved steel fabrication and aluminum fabrication or steel fabrication and stainless-steel fabrication. Furthermore, our abrasives do not mix to maintain complete purity during the welding process.

Our metal suppliers

In the light of our metal fabrication success, I need to mention our metal suppliers with excellent service, valuable advice….and custom cuts. First of all, we buy our steel from St. Thomas Steel Centre for their superior service. Secondly, we buy our small and untraditional pieces of steel as well as aluminum pieces from Metal Supermarket in London. In fact, I would like to recommend these suppliers to buyers of steel in London area.
