WELDING AND FABRICATION
A specialty built from our machine-building roots is welding and manufacturing. Customers enjoyed the quality of our work on the machines we designed for them and started to request our services in this field.
Our team of qualified welders from AWS D1.1 and ASME Section IX are proficient in welding all forms of carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminium and a variety of specialty alloys, including Inconel 718 and Nytronic 60. All structural types are treated, including the channel, angle, beam, tubes, and plates.
In the medical, pharmaceutical, food processing, packaging, and nuclear energy sectors, we work extensively with businesses. We are also aware of the strict welding requirements expected in these industries and work with them on a daily basis. Astro Machine has the potential to work with different requirements such as food grades for GMP and FDA. All the secondary support services associated with this level of welding complexity are provided by us such as:
Penetrant examination of Dye
Testing of Magnetic Particles
Processes for industry-specific cleaning
Systems for Panel Wiring and Monitoring
For all applications, Astro Machine Works, Inc. constructs control cabinets to customer requirements. Many customers have come to rely on us for their panel wiring and control system needs due to the extensive panel and control wiring needed in the production of our custom machinery. The main control cabinets, operator stations, and a variety of on-board” wiring and connections are supplied with full wiring. This requires daily wiring of PLCs, as well as experience with touch screen technology and servo drive technologies. Our clients appreciate our custom wired panel layout and arrangement, including the completeness and appearance of our labelling and bundling.
