Aluminum Fabrication For Quality Performance

For over 20 years, Thieman Manufacturing Technologies has been a leader in custom aluminum fabrication providing skilled techniques with detailed precision. Each of our metal fabrication techniques can be used on aluminum to help create the ideal end production result — one that performs at the highest level. 

What makes Aluminum so appealing is that it can be shaped into almost anything. Its versatility makes it a popular option for many different production uses as well as its ability to provide excellent strength at such a lightweight. From thick aluminum plates, to the thin body of soda cans, aluminum has proven its worth in a variety of different industries.

Features of Aluminum

High resistance against both chemicals and corrosion

Conducts heat and electricity well

Easy to work with

Has an excellent strength to weight ratio

Machining Options for Aluminum Fabrication

MIG & TIG Welding – These welding services produce high precision finished metals for a variety of different industries. MIG welding is great for producing high strength finished products, while TIG welding is typically used to weld thinner metals and requires precision and complex control. Aluminum is typically welded using TIG welding. 

CNC Milling – Our precision metal bending services are intended to bend sheet metal into various shapes such as a “V” or a “U” shape. At TMT Fab, our technicians use press-brake forming, swaging, rolling, and various other metal-bending solutions to deliver high-quality precision results. 

CNC Turning – This process pieces away at a metal bar until it is formed into the desired shape. 

CNC Punching – State of the art technology gives all our CNC machining equipment the benefits of increased production capacity, speed, and versatility all while providing exceptional results.

Laser Cutting – The ideal solution to burn, melt, cut, or vaporize small-medium sized metals to leave precise edges and high-quality surface finishes.

Metal Forming – This process aggressively bends metal sheets and plates between 90 tons and 175-250 tons. Our technician operated press brakes can make predetermined bends resulting in a variety of different shapes.

Metal Rolling – TMT’s custom plate rolling and sheet rolling machines can accurately roll steel and aluminum to almost any custom dimension, thickness, or specification, with enough speed to meet even high-volume production orders.

Metal Sawing – Our metal sawing capabilities allow us to precisely cut any shape, angle, bar, pipe, tubing, and channel with ease.

Metal Finishes for Aluminum Parts

Also called “Bead Blasting,” this finish creates a smooth matte appearance on metals.

Parts and applications may have an anodized finish for a wide variety of custom colors, which may include clear, black, gold, or desired custom colors.

  • – Type II Anodized Finishing creates a finish that is resistant to corrosion.
  • – Type III Anodized Finishing creates a thicker finish that is more wear resistant than its lesser option.

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.

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.
