Metal Forming

Process Meets Precision

We have the expertise, tools and machines to bend and form the tubes and components vital for high-quality cylinder production.

We specialize in bending and forming rectangular and specialty-shaped tubes for structural weldments. Dimensional capabilities range from under 1-inch to 8-inch diameter rounds.

To produce the shoulder and necks of the cylinders, many of our tanks require precise hot-spin forming. Cold-press forming includes deep drawing and ironing.

Our Machine Technologies team supports our metal-forming processes with their tooling and machine-building capabilities. We tap into our many robust processing capabilities to fabricate best-in-class products for our customers.

Product Performance Perfected

Using state-of-the-art equipment, our heat-treating techniques strengthen material or enable material ductility. Achieving precise performance properties is often a critical part of the cylinder production process.

In-House Team and Testing Lab

A wide range of manufacturing facilities rely on our advanced metals evaluation lab for product and process development.

Our in-house team of metallurgical engineers allow us to partner with customers to provide supplier trials, materials-related problem solving and product development.

Some of our lab services include chemistries, mechanical properties analysis, tensile test, hardness test, micro evaluation, microhardness testing, spectro-chemical analysis, profilometer test, R-Bar test, Erichsen test, Olsen cup test, zinc coating test, reverse engineering, certification, PPAP, failure analysis, various imaging processes (macro photography, scanning electron microscopy) and other analyses, to provide a microscopic view of materials. This allows us to predict the operations outcome of a material before running it live in a facility.

Paintings & Coatings

Protection Against the Elements

Durable paintings and coatings extend the life of our products by resisting corrosion and damage.

Cylinders are designed to endure rugged environmental and handling conditions. Our top-coat capabilities include fully automated E-Coat systems, Durabond and both powder and wet paint stations to ensure they stand the test of time.

Pressure Testing

Contents Safely Contained

Our safety standards far exceed industry regulations, with stringent testing processes to ensure unparalleled cylinder integrity.

Many of the products we produce store hazardous contents under tremendous forces of pressure. To ensure the integrity of their construction, we perform various pressure tests including, but not limited to:

  • Pressure cycling
  • Hydrostatic testing
  • Burst testing
  • Bubble leak testing

The Science and Art of Joining Metal

We’re a leader in structural welding, with expertise in multiple weld processes, paired with process controls, inspections and robotic capabilities. Our highly skilled welders are trained and certified to AWS D1.1/D14.3, and support GMAW, FCAW, SAW and Spot.

Weld specifications, paired with operator process instructions, ensure quality and accuracy. Weld-size gauging, micro-etching, magnetic particle testing and ultrasonic testing provide verification in the weld process.

In an effort to improve efficiency and quality, robotic technologies are implemented across several product lines.

Our wide range of joining process capabilities extend to include:

  • Gas Metal Arc Welding
  • Gas Tungsten Arc Welding
  • Plasma Arc Welding
  • Submerged Arc Welding
  • Resistance Spot Welding
  • Resistance Projection Welding
  • Shielded Metal Arc Welding
  • Laser Welding
  • Brazing
  • Soldering
  • Robotic Welding
  • Mechanized Welding
  • Carbon Steel
  • Stainless Steel
  • Aluminum
