Signal Metal Large Fabrication Facility - 100 Ton Crane Capacity

At Signal Metal Industries, Inc., production of custom steel fabrications is one of our core strengths. Our heavy plate fabrication experience spans more than four decades, and we have achieved status as being one of the most reliable and respected companies in the field. With quality and timeliness as two of our foremost priorities, we are ISO compliant and have an outstanding record for on-time completion.

We offer complete turnkey fabrication and assembly for projects that range in size from moderate to epic. Our 120,000 square-foot facility houses a full range of heavy duty plate fabrication machinery, state-of-the-art robotic and manual welding stations, an oversized stress-relief furnace, and range of machining and finishing equipment. We have cranes that can lift up to 100 tons, 35 feet under hook, as well as multiple medium-size fabrication bays with 20-ton lifting capacity.

Inside our dedicated assembly area, we have the tools for managing the installation and testing of electrical, hydraulic, and lubrication systems as well as the installation and alignment of mechanical components such as motors, gear drives, wheel assemblies, and more. In addition to traditional measuring instruments, our quality lab houses the latest technology laser-based measuring devices as well as hydro, pneumatic, and lift testing equipment. We also offer a full range of Non-Destructive Testing for verifying weld quality.

We take a structured, organized approach to project management. Our multi-disciplined engineers, fabrication specialists, quality technicians and assembly professionals work together as a team to ensure quality objectives are met and that schedules are on track. Our key manufacturing leaders are hands-on and each have over 25 years of experience. We have a long history of supplying quality fabrications that support needs of steel making, heavy industry, power generation companies, and many other industries where large scale equipment and machinery are the norm.
