ABCO boasts 30,000 square feet of in-house Metal Fabrication and Machining. This work space allows us to provide custom quality-controlled components and assemblies that support the requirements of machine builds as well as enables us to deliver a fast turn-around time. We have extensive machining equipment, including CAD/CAM machinery for CNC milling, drilling, turning, and grinding operations for all types of metal and plastic materials. Our specialties lie in CNC horizontal turning, vertical 5-axis milling, horizonal milling, and high-speed machining. With those particular capabilities, we are able to precision machine parts from 1″ to 120″. In addition, ABCO has a vertical boring mill which allows us to machine diverse shapes of heavy or large parts.
Our metal fabrication and machining teams know their trades and value quality, accuracy, and on-time completion of their work. Both teams work together to manufacture components integral to ABCO’s custom design build and build-to-print equipment, as well as provide job-shop machining and fabrication services for clients. ABCO’s in-house abilities demonstrate our full-service commitment to clients and ensure exceptional quality control of our manufactured components. For a full list of ABCO’s equipment and capabilities, see our Metal Fabrication and Machining equipment list below.
As part of our end-to-end welding process, we perform Non Destructive Examinations (NDE) on our welded components to locate and determine any defects. Applying Visual Inspection (VT), our Level II and Level III NDE inspectors practice in accordance with SNT-TC-1A. With tools such as fillet gauges, magnifying glasses, tape measures, and calipers, inspectors can reveal spatter, excessive buildup, incomplete slag removal, cracks, heat distortion, undercutting, and poor penetration.
