Metal fabrication and manipulation is one of our key areas of expertise and an important process in many of the projects we undertake.
Consequently, we’ve invested heavily in both the latest manufacturing equipment and training for those employees who use it.
Though the vast majority of heavy industries depend on high-quality metal manufacturing, few businesses can work to the standard we aspire to. Our extensive plant list ensures we’re capable of taking on bespoke metal fabrication projects and delivering on budget, to tight deadlines and the highest degree of accuracy.
Metal fabrication services
We are committed to providing the highest level of service. We deliver:
Experience and expertise
Metal fabrication and manipulation is one of our key ares of expertise.
We have invested heavily in the latest metal fabrication manufacturing equipment and training.
Bespoke metal fabrication projects
We are equipped to complete bespoke metal fabrication projects, on budget, to tight deadlines, and the to the highest degree of accuracy.
Our welders are trained in accordance with the latest regulatory certification process.
Sheet Metal Fabrication
Using 5-axis laser cutting equipment, we have the ability to manufacture complex designs to precise specifications. However, press punching may prove a more cost-effective metal manufacturing process for less complex and high-volume orders. In such a case, our X1 Amada Turret Press and Amada Brake Press, as well as our CNC machining capabilities, are the ideal solution.
Extensive welding technologies
We also maintain extensive welding technologies and the expert staff required to tackle complex projects. All welders at Portsmouth Aviation are trained and qualified in accordance with the latest regulatory certification processes. This means BS EN ISO 9606-1:2013 for steel and BS EN ISO 9606-2:2004 for aluminium and aluminium alloys. We also ensure that we’re always able to provide MIG, MAG, TIG, spot welding and induction silver soldering and brazing services.
