Custom metal fabrication is a core capability in our manufacturing process. The experience we have gained from years of fabricating carts, racks and containers goes into everythong we build.
Our combination of equipment and experienced craftsman enable us to fabricate complex products with a high focus on repeatability and accuracy. Our fabrication department is designed to produce our products in house which enables us to better monitor and control quality, production time, and materials.
Matcon utilizes automated sawing systems for cutting raw materials used in racks and containers. We use this process because it improves manufacturing performance and measurement accuracy as well as reducing operating costs. This process also allows us to cut materials in bulk further reducing production time.
Matcon uses Laser and Plasma Cutting as a part of its manufacturing process to improve productivity and reduce costs.
Laser cutting is a cutting process that allows for extreme precision and repeatability along with a high quality finish and maximizes materials. It is the prefered cutting method when tight tolerances need to be achieved. Laser cutting is used with thinner materials up to 1" carbon and 1/2 " aluminum.
Plasma cutting is an alternative method used to cut materials up to 2" thick while maintaining precision and repeatability.
Matcon incorporates CNC Machining into a variety of our primary fabrication operations. Using CNC enables us to reduce manufacturing time while improving accuracy. Our machining includes CNC and manual machining, CNC milling, CNC turning, CNC drilling, slotting, threading, boring, hard turning, drilling and tapping. Materials worked include carbon steel, alloy, aluminum, stainless steel, nylon and other plastics. Bar feed up to 2-3/4” diameter; turn up to 16” diameter. Short and long run productions are available.
These are processes using specific equipment to cut, bend and shape metal into specific forms. Matcon incorporates press forming shearing and stamping in its manufacturing process when needed to ensure accuracy, product quality, and performance.
We have the capability to shear up to 1/4" x 10', and can bend brake up to 10' lengths with our 130 Ton press while utilizing a programmable backstop which improves accuracy and repeatability while reducing setup time.
Robotic welding offers significant value to our operations because it increases productivity and accuracy over traditional welding methods. This helps us reduce material waste and reduce production time which helps us be more price competitive. Our robotic welding process is determined by part configuration and length of the run.
