At Astro Engineering and Manufacturing, our perforated metal department quotes aggressively and delivers quality perforated metal products for both architectural and industrial use.
We are equipped with the TruPunch 3000, and have a second machine, the TruPunch 5000, coming in the Fall of 2018 which will expand our punching capabilities. Those machines along with the welders, laser, press brakes, saws, and machining capabilities, gives our clients access to full service metal fabrication from a single source. Being we do all these operations in house, we can get the projects through faster and maintain control over the quality. With our modern equipment, talented workforce, and expanded perforating capabilities, we are creating projects containing perforated metal sheet, perforated aluminum panels, and perforated stainless steel sheet for industrial and architectural applications.
Handling Your Perforated Sheet Metal Requirements
Let Astro take care of the metal needs of your project. Our team of engineers and project managers offer collaborative design to tweak your project for optimum performance and efficient fabrication. Mounting systems and brackets are not always fully addressed on requests for quotes. Industrial prints may call out parts that are not available or are designed for less than optimum fabrication methods. We enjoy finding cost saving options and improvements to pass on to our customers. The sooner in the process that we are consulted on these projects, the more help we can offer.
PERFORATED SHEET METAL APPLICATIONS
Our start in delivering quality perforated metal projects for architectural and industrial use began with fabricating replacement food dryer plates for food dryers. This requires punching a variety shapes and patterns plus slitting and notching. We overcame obstacles of warpage and sheet growth; and learned how to use cluster punches for increased speed. We were able to achieve and meet the tolerances needed to make first-quality parts by drafting in SolidWorks, and program the punch in ways to manage and control the deformation created by punching holes in sheet metal. That was over 10 years ago, but we are still discovering ways to continuously improve.
We continue to perforate and fabricate food dryer plates but have expanded to other perforated metal projects. This includes perforated aluminum fencing and balcony railings, perforated metal building panels for parking ramps, filtration parts for the water filtration industry, commercial radiator covers, and more. We can handle your everyday needs for perforated metal panels and stainless steel perforated sheet work. At Astro, we take pride in the quality of the work we provide and our ability to get your project done efficiently and effectively.
