Fully Automated Coil Lines
A Fully Automated Coil Line system is excellent for accelerated projects and offering faster turnaround for all coil operations, quickly loading the coils in the fastest and most efficient means possible. The components operate in unison to eliminate the need for operator attention or intervention when loading coils. With the push of one button, an automated system retrieves the coil to be processed. The system will then measure the outside and inside diameters of the coil. After measuring, the Coil Car will position and raise the coil as required automatically for loading onto the line’s uncoiler. It can then then spear the coil and center it automatically on the line. This sequence of events takes place unattended by the line’s operator.
Plasma Cutting Tables
Plasma cutting is one of the most effective means of cutting thin and thick materials alike, although must always be conducted by a set of skilled hands and the highest quality equipment and table. Hand-held torches can usually cut up to 38 mm (1.5 in) thick steel plate, and stronger computer-controlled torches can cut steel up to 150 mm (6 in) thick. Since plasma cutters produce a very hot and very localized “cone” to cut with, they’re extremely useful for cutting sheet metal in curved or angled shapes, and Stromberg Metal Works, Inc. is proud to offer the best plasma cutting tables on the market.
Seam, MIG & TIG Welding
When welding thin metal, the main objective is to avoid warping, burn-through and excessive heat affected zones while still ensuring the weld has sufficient mechanical strength for the application. The welding processes that provide the most control over heat are short circuit transfer MIG (“short arc”), pulsed MIG, TIG, and pulsed TIG.
For fabricators and others with bottom line goals, welding sheet metal often means a constant battle between productivity and equipment investment vs. burn-through, warping, excessive heat affected zones (HAZ) and weld appearance. For the individual occasionally welding sheet metal, success can be as simple as learning the proper techniques.
Coated Ductwork Capabilities
Over the last few years, Coated Ductwork has become an industry standard. The chemical inertness of PVS combined with the strength of Spiral pipe make Vinyl Coated Duct ideal for chemical fume removal applications and for underground HVAC applications where strength and resistance to corrosive salts and other minerals found in backfill are prerequisites.
Another popular modern trend, professionals will notice the proliferation of exposed spiral sheet metal ductwork as a key architectural design element in both the new construction and renovation of commercial buildings. In numerous modern commercial buildings and structures, the use of spiral duct creates a contemporary look in any space.
Quikduc Duct Flange Systems
Strong and virtually leak-free rectangular duct connection systems Quikduc Duct Flange Systems consist of roll-formed flanges, corner pieces, gasket, and cleat. The flanges attach to the duct wall and have an integral mastic which allows the flange to seal itself to the duct. Corner pieces are used to add rigidity to the flange, hold the ductwork together, and provide a sealing surface for the gasket. The gasket serves as a seal between the flanges. The cleat insures even compression of the gasket along the length of the flange.
A flat sheet of material is not actually produced by a mill as a flat sheet. In reality, a flat sheet of material starts its life as part of a coil of material. A Cut-To-Length Line / Blanking Line will uncoil the material, level it, and then cut it to the required length and stack it. The end product produced by a Cut-To-Length Line / Blanking Line is a flat sheet of material cut to a very precise length tolerance. When considering a Cut-To-Length / Blanking Line and the proper line configuration for your application, there are several variables you should consider. The thickness of the material, the type of material, length of the sheets to be produced, as well as annual volume to be processed all influence the line configuration and capabilities required for a successful installation.
Automated Estimation Systems
Automated Estimation Systems allow the professional contractor to estimate the cost and effort (and to perform the necessary pre-planning analysis) for crucial project variables, such as completion date and additional required staff or equipment. If applying different estimation tools on the same project data, variation in estimated results are encountered. As a modern method of planning your own project, automated systems are a near-guaranteed to quicken workflow and precision.
Computer-Aided Drafting Systems
CAD, or computer-aided drafting, is the use of computer technology for design and design documentation. CAD software replaces manual drafting with an automated process. If you work in the architecture, MEP, or structural engineering fields, you’ve probably used 2D or 3D CAD programs. These programs can help you explore design ideas, visualize concepts through photorealistic renderings, and simulate how a design will perform in the real world.
Labs, Cleanrooms & Pharmaceutical Systems
Cleanroom and Pharmaceutical Systems are designed specifically for life science facilities and can easily accommodate changes in airflow demands, reduce future HVAC renovation costs, maintain the environmental integrity of a research facility, and help earn the points to achieve an organization’s LEED goals. Controlling these factors contributes directly to your operating margins, reducing risk, and lowering facility costs.
Architectural, Ornamental and Specialty Metal Work
Establishments primarily engaged in manufacturing architectural and ornamental metal work, such as stairs and staircases, open steel flooring (grating), fire escapes, grilles, railings, and fences and gates, except those made from wire will find all that they need with Stromberg Metal Works, Inc.’s many equipment offerings and services.
Custom Hoods, Panels, Trim and Grilles
If you work in a field related to automotive, particularly the rebuilding of exterior metal work, Stromberg Metal Works, Inc. has the means and equipment for all of your professional needs, as well.
