One of the major advantages of stainless steel, and the austenitic grades in particular, is their ability to be fabricated by all the standard fabrication methods. In some cases stainless steel lends itself more favorability to some fabrication methods better than the more well-known carbon steels. The common austenitic grades can be folded, bent, cold and hot forged, deep drawn, spun and roll formed. Because of the materials’ high strength and very high work hardening rate all of these operations require more force than for carbon steels, so a heavier machine may be needed, and more allowance may needed to account for spring-back.
Austenitic stainless steels also have very high ductile properties, so are in fact capable of being very heavily cold formed, despite their high strengths and high work hardening rates. Few other metals are capable of achieving this degree of deformation without splitting.
Our machining division is equipped with the latest machine tools offering fast cut rates and fast tool changes. We buy high end machines because we expect our parts to stand out aesthetically from our competition’s parts.
To put out a consistently beautiful machined product, year after year, machines need to be rigid and durable. Our highly skilled machinists can push our machines to the limits producing your parts with fewer equipment breakdowns. Looking at finished machined parts will make you think our machinists use only slow feed rates.

Welding is a critical PROCESS in many manufacturing operations. But studies have shown that many shops focus on the cost of the products used in welding, with less emphasis on the overall productivity of the process. Viewing welding as a process can lead to important productivity improvements. We focus on the overall cost of delivering parts at the lowest cost.
An important resource of our company is our employee know-how combined with their continual efforts to use this application knowledge to our customer’s benefit.
Our sales representatives, application engineers and product specialists will work with you to solve problems and improve operations. Our engineers have many years of practical industrial welding and cutting experience, which can be focused upon your situation.
Regular feedback from our experiences around New England ensures that we are always up-to-date in process improvement opportunities.
Our welding services include:
