Since 1954, we at Davis Machine & Fabrication have been a reliable provider of large castings and fabrications for applications across a range of industries. In the project profiled here, a Lime plant manufacturer contracted us to fabricate large steel ducts in which 45° angles were necessary. Using advanced machinery including a ½" Plate Roll, CNC plasma burning machine, and press brake, we performed welding, plasma cutting and roll forming processes to configure steel to exacting customer specifications. A tight tolerance of ± 1/16" was held throughout. The fabricated duct was sandblasted, and painted as stipulated. Quality was ensured with comprehensive fit testing and visual inspections.

Overall dimensions for the completed unit was 17' in length, 10' in width, and a weight of 2,500 lbs. 8 ducts were manufactured in a turnaround time of 2 weeks, meeting the highest industry standards for quality and functionality.
