When the railroad industry is in need of custom metal parts, they trust the company that has provided quality and reliability to the U.S for over 30 years: TMT Fab. To help aid the growth of the railroad industry, we’ve worked countless hours constructing metal parts for rail cars and train systems all over the country. Each part we build is made with the correct specifications and requirements needed for train systems. We use our CNC Machining Services and Sheet Metal Fabrication Services to provide rail cars, trains, railways, and railroad systems with the proper parts they need to withstand elements of all kinds and easily perform their daily tasks.
For over 30 years Thieman Manufacturing has provided the best custom metal work around. Located just outside of Charlotte, North Carolina, we have provided sheet and plate metal fabrication for industries all over the United States. Our engineers can make a variety of different railroad parts for trains and railway systems.

Our Machining Capabilities
Custom metal parts in the railroad industry need to be reliable, high-quality, and of the utmost strength. Our engineers begin by looking at your CAD file and use their skills and knowledge to give you the best same-day quote. We tend to work with four main metals, Stainless Steel, Carbon Steel, Aluminum, and Copper. And after your custom metal part is finished produced, we offer a variety of metal finishes that give your parts the utmost ability to succeed. Contact us for more information and to get started on your custom metal railroad parts today.
A standard finish is minimal, and is left with a raw-form metal.
Also called “Bead Blasting,” this finish creates a smooth matte appearance on metals.
Powder coating is a painting process where powdered paint is sprayed on a part or application prior to heating. The result is a strong layer that is more resistant to wear and corrosion.
This process also allows for a wide selection of colors for the further customization of color.
This layer of zinc coating provides protection from corrosion.
Also known as Chem Film or Chemical Conversion Coating, this metal coating provides corrosion resistance and conductive properties. This coat may also be used as a base for painted or color finishes.
This three-step process coats fabricated metals in a bath of molten zinc, protecting it from corrosion.
A process that alters the physical and chemical properties of a metal, by heating it or cooling it to extreme temperatures to make the material harder or softer.
Using a pump, spray, or pressurized vessel, liquid paint is evenly applied to a part or application.
This dipping (immersion) process uses organic paint particles, where the paint based finish is able to stick on a metal surface with the help of electrical currents.
If a custom finish is required for an order, or the finish is not listed on our site, please include this information when requesting a quote. We can likely still complete the project.
Our metal fabrication process produces highly durable and precision cut parts and prototypes .
Our turnaround for fabricated parts are often processed and completed within just 2-3 weeks of an order.
Our metal fabrication services combine many options, ranging from the type of metal, it strength, finish, and durability.
Our parts are manufactured on-demand, and our process allow us to effectively create 1 prototype or 1000s of parts.
The railroad industry chooses TMT Fab because we have 30+ years of trusted steel fabrication experience. Each part is precisely made with durability and excellence.
