When AT&F was approached to produce 40ft long complex weldments for a crane manufacturer, the company looked to employ new technology on a larger scale than is typically attempted. AT&F is known for the scale, scope, and precision of our long-forming capabilities. More recently, we made investments to cover long length precision welding using robotics. Traditionally, long length full penetration welds are susceptible to heat distortion when performed manually, or by common semi-automatic methods.
Turning a plate of steel into a finished part takes specialized equipment and a deep understanding of what the plate undergoes during the process. From heavy cylinders to frame rails to crane booms, large structures can be formed with a high degree of control, but different projects call for different pieces of equipment. AT&F has world class equipment and expertise in metal forming going back to the 1940’s so you know your project is in good hands, no matter the size or dimensions.
After arriving at the Ronald McDonald House in Cleveland, OH, the team of AT&F volunteers quickly unpacked the groceries and began preparations. This was not their first time making dinner for the house, and their confidence in the kitchen was reassuring to many of the guests. The team prepared pizza and made good use of the four ovens in the kitchen. With up to 55 families to feed, dinner had to be big. Fortunately, a five-person team made quick work of the bulk-purchased food.
Continuing on AT&F’s tradition of close involvement with the U.S. Military and showcasing our respect for the men and women of our armed forces, AT&F has partnered with the Wounded Warriors Project to donate 40 trophies, laser cut and welded from stainless steel.
