To our knowledge the machinery we have gives us the capability of welding and assembling the largest plate Girders or H-beams not only in South Africa but also in Africa.

This advanced machinery allows us to assemble and weld large plate girders automatically, without having to assemble them manually. This additional investment in our business and for our clients saves us a considerable amount of time and money and gives us unspeakable efficiencies and accuracies in production.

Our state of the art welding line enables us to;

  • Manufacture faster
  • More reliable & accurate assembly
  • Improved welding penetration
  • Improved welding quality
  • Ability to manufacture cambered beams
  • Ability to manufacture tapered beams
  • Prevention of angular deflection with straightening rolls
  • Double deposit Submerged Tandum Arc Welding
  • More competitive pricing

The types of beams we are able to weld are;

  • T Beams
  • H Beams
  • Box Beams
  • Star Beams
