Stainless Steel Fabrication Services

Precision Sheet Stainless Steel Fabrication Across Nottinghamshire and Great Britain

Sheet metal fabrication is the cornerstone of what we do here at HEC Showman. Under that umbrella of sheet metal fabrication, we specialise in stainless steel fabrication. Stainless steel fabrication is one of our specialist skills. We have over 30 years experience working with stainless steel and in that time have honed our skills to produce quality results. From brushed to bright polished, through different grades, we have the experience to work with it all.

Although we work in stainless steel, we also have specialist fabrication skills in other metals:

Our latest addition, an Amada laser, now ensures that we are a fully self contained fabrication service. Controlling all processes at our own facilities in Nottinghamshire, ensures we offer a quick turnaround, whilst being able to ensure quality is kept at the forefront through all fabrication stages.

Stainless Steel Fabrication Laser Cutting Capabilities

As we’ve discussed on previous pages, our recent acquisition of a laser cutting machine has ensured that our fabrication services are now better than ever. This new machinery ensures that we can offer better than ever turn around times, reduced costs and better quality sheet metal fabrication services than ever before. Furthermore the laser has allowed us to adjust our fabrication processed increasing the precision of our work. Furthermore, laser cutting stainless steel presents a few additional challenges. To protect the sheet, stainless steel usually comes with a protective film. This results in additional challenges when laser cutting it. Most to note is that the plastic film has to be cut in a way that will not clog the nozzle of the laser.

Precision Stainless Steel Fabrication Forming Capacities

Our Guimadira CNC programmable press brakes further help us to achieve a high degree of consistent accuracy in our press forming of our precision fabricated products. These machines allow us to store pre-programmed settings for each of our many different products. The storage of pre-programmed measurements and controls ensures we can quickly change from job to job and still maintain quality. This saves time and possible operator error as individual information does not need to be input each time we form a product part. Furthermore, it ensures production precision from one batch to the next.

Stainless Steel Welding and Finishing Services

Stainless steel welding can be challenging. As its often self finishing, getting that perfect weld is more important than ever. Welding is definable one of our key strengths as we are capable of creating good clean welds that require little, if any dressing.

Finishing Services

Although stainless steel is more often than not left self finish due to its inherit properties, we can, and do powder coat it. Powder coating stainless steel provides a coloured finish and is often used on products that are to be used outdoors.
