SouthStar Plasma Machine

At Signal Metal Industries, Inc., we have deep roots in the flame cutting industry. Serving the needs of industry since 1973, our extensive in-house capabilities enable us to achieve the tightest tolerances and meet the most challenging delivery schedules. With our multi-torch, CNC controlled oxy-fuel and plasma cutting equipment and 25-ton lifting capacity, we can process plate measuring up to 60' in length x 13' in width x 12" in thickness.

We have a 10-acre burning facility and a continuously replenished inventory of more than 2,000 tons of A36, A572-50, A516-70, A514-TI, stainless and alloy plate measuring from 3/16" up to 12" in thickness. Our two oxy fuel multi-torch cutting machines and two plasma machines, one with a CNC drilling and beveling head, can operate 20 hours per day to process jobs in an expedited manner. With a technically trained team of experienced programmers and operators using powerful AutoCAD and NC Polaris software tools, we deliver quality parts with narrow ±1º kerf cuts and tighter than standard dimensional tolerances. We specialized in delivering parts in a cleaned up condition free from slag and with no rough edges.

Cost-effective in low or high volume, our flame cutting services satisfy the needs of OEMs and manufacturers in a diverse range of industries. We specialize in providing complete parts kits, professional packaged to protect the contents during transport and storage. As part of our comprehensive job shop capabilities, we also offer services such as beveling, drilling, and part stamping/etching. If you are interested in learning more about our reliable and high-quality flame cutting services, contact us today.
