Midwest Manufacturing and Logistics produces short run, high quality, low carbon steel weldments up to 190,000 pounds.
The weld shop has both plasma arc and oxy-fuel plate burning capabilities in two N/C plate burning machines. These machnies are interfaced to the company CAD/CAM system where the burning templates are created. Flame beveling, forming, heat treating, and shot blasting capabilities also exist in the fabrication facility.
Most welding is done by positioning the parts on mechanical positioners ranging in size from 4.5 tons to 350 tons. Positioning the weldments in this way allows for the most efficient welding deposition rates. Gas Metal arc (metal core) welding processes are employed throughout the fabrication unit. This process was chosen for its deposition rate, penetration benefits, and low slag generating characteristics.
