Welded Bracket for the Heavy Construction Equipment Industry
A Tennessee-based construction equipment company approached Z&L Machining, Inc. to manufacture welded brackets. These brackets of laser cut and hot rolled 1018 steel bar stock were to be used within a weldment for heavy construction equipment.
The brackets were saw cut to a length of 4.331" ±.020" using a Kasto saw. They were then drill, tapped, and deburred with an Okuma CNC Mill. Finally, the seats were welded to the HR A-36 plate with a Miller MIG welder. Each 2.73 lbs. bracket was then tested and inspected using calipers, thread gages and a CMM.
Using these top of the line machines, processes and testing, Z&L was able to create a run of 1,400 brackets within tightest tolerances of +.005/ -.003".
