Metal Fabrication / Welding
The in-house metal fabrication and welding capabilities at Fox Valley Stamping Company provide several clear benefits to our customers including:
- Quality – guaranteed consistent, detailed, durable parts
- Efficiency – better coordination with customer production flow
- Lower Prices – parts completed without additional subcontractors means competitive pricing
- Turnaround – in-house metal fabrication allows faster delivery
After parts are stamped, punched and formed, the individual stampings or metal blanks are completed in our in-house metal fabrication process. This process begins with taking the multiple sheet metal parts or blanks and welding them together, sometimes to very close tolerances, as called for by the project specifications. Machined components or other hardware may also be added in the metal fabrication process, and, if necessary, we build specific fixtures to put all the parts together. FVSC in-house welding capabilities save on project costs. Our semi-automatic MIG welding and TIG welding machines provide quality weldments consistently and efficiently. MIG welding is versatile and fast. TIG welding yields a higher quality weld and is ideal for thin parts and stronger welds. The TIG welding process is also cleaner, with minimal post-weld cleaning required.
