Custom Fabricated Stainless Steel Frames for the Food Service Industry

Our company was asked to custom fabricate a stainless steel frame by one of our clients in the food service industry. The customer-supplied print and 2D CAD drawing showed that the Illinois-based company was in need of an 8 ft L x 2 ft. W x 3 ft. H stainless steel frame.

We used state-of-the-art equipment (KASTO cold saw, Okuma CNC mill, Okuma CNC lathe, Bridgeport mill, Hardinge lathe, and Miller TIG welder) to saw cut, laser cut, mill, turn, and weld 130 lbs. of 304 stainless steel tubing and bar.

A #4 polish was applied, and the frame was tested and inspected using a number of different and exacting processes (caliper, micrometer, tape, and square).
