Heavy Machining / Fabrication Capabilities
What is Heavy Fabrication?
Heavy Fabrication is a type of fabrication that involves very large or oversized components and materials. AT&F has some of the largest fabricating equipment on the planet. This enables a customer to purchase large, heavy fabrications from one Company instead of needing to source the heavy fabrication from multiple suppliers. Examples of heavy fabrication are bridge tub girders that AT&F can form in one piece up to 60’ long; Large diameter and long vessels for use in the heavy fabrication of process equipment for Bio Fuel market; Telescoping Booms for the heavy industrial Truck Mounted Crane market. Fabricators with smaller equipment are unable to Cut, Form, Roll, Weld, and Machine components and assemblies at the size and scope of AT&F.
Through its investment in large-scale heavy fabrication and machining equipment, AT&F’s commitment “We Invest In Customer Success” is illustrated. The CNC horizontal boring mill on AT&F’s campus in Cleveland provides AT&F customers access to critical functions of heavy machining – milling, boring, drilling, and threading (40′ X-axis x 14′ Y-axis x 6′ Z-axis). AT&F also offers its stainless steel, carbon, and alloy material fabrication customers a new vertical boring mill that features a 360-degree rotary table with a diameter of more than 16 feet and a load capacity of 160 tons. Capabilities include a 30-foot swing and more than 8 feet of ram travel.
The boring mills are housed alongside colossal plate rolls and press brakes in a facility that has 100-ton lift capacity, 25′ doors, and rail siding access. By offering capital investments in heavy machining, AT&F can fabricate parts from start to finish, allowing customers to reap the efficiency gains of custom fabricating, high-precision machining and shipping components all from one location. Extending our machining capacity, AT&F Wisconsin is also capable of heavy machining.
According to Ken Ripich, EVP of AT&F, “Our customers require highly precise fabrications ready for assembly. AT&F leads the industry with state-of-the-art technology and services that greatly benefit our customers. Adding machining to our services provides our customers with a supplier able to fabricate parts from start to finish. Our customers demand and deserve the highest quality products available and AT&F is more prepared than ever to provide them.”
