Craft offers its customers 40,000 square feet of burning, forming, fitting and welding capability in steels, aluminum and exotics. Craft’s fabrication facility is served by 40 ton overhead lift capacity and numerous small cranes. CNC, Oxy-fuel and Plasma cutting machines routinely handle materials up to 15 inches in thickness in 10 foot widths and 45 foot lengths. Shears and bending equipment have capacity for 10 foot width materials up to 1 inch in thickness. Weld positioners are rated up to 20 tons. SMAW, GMAW, FCAW, MIG and TIG processes are used for mild steels, low alloy steels, stainless steel, nickel alloy and copper alloys. Other special processes are available for specialized materials such as titanium.  Craft also preforms both Vibratory as well as Thermal Stress Relieving. We use “Formula 62″ vibratory method and have an oven with a 16 Foot wide by 12 Foot tall opening utilizing 55 foot long rail car bottom oven. This oven is calibrated to NIST and has both zone controlling thermocouples as well as part sensing thermocouples.
