CRAFT Engineering

Our fifty years producing complex machined fabrications allows us to be far down the manufacturing learning curve. Our engineering staff will analyze your component for manufacturability to be sure we are providing the most cost effective finished part.



CRAFT Machining

Our fleet of more than 50 sophisticated machining tools includes multi-axis CNC lathes, very large horizontal and vertical boring mills, as well as a range of complementary equipment to complete intricate tasks.

Able to handle virtually any size job, Craft’s machine shop can turn and bore parts up to 25 feet in diameter, 13 feet high and 15 inches thick. In addition, our lathes can turn 66-inch diameters up to 25 feet in length, and we operate mills with 26 feet of continuous horizontal travel and 11 feet of vertical travel.

CRAFT Welding and Burning

Craft Machine Works boasts an extensive list of welding capabilities and machinery for turnkey production. Our weld positioners are rated up to 20 tons, and our electronically controlled plasma arc burning system can flame-cut a 15-inch thick plate of steel or aluminum. Spanning 16 feet in width by 12 feet in height, our stress relieving oven features a 55-foot rail car bottom and is calibrated to NIST with zone-controlling thermocouples.

To provide one shop for all your manufacturing needs, our specialists can perform SMAW, GMAW, FCAW, MIG, TIG and submerged arc welding, as well as thermal stress-relieving and vibratory stress relieving using the “Formula 62″ method. We also meet all AWS, ASME and Military standards to weld a broad range of metals including aluminum, mild and low-alloy steel, stainless steel, carbon steel, nickel/copper alloys, high-molybdenum alloys, tempered alloys (HY80-HY100) and titanium.



CRAFT Fabricating

Within our 40,000 square-foot facility dedicated to sheet metal fabrication, we offer a range of capabilities including:

Burning, forming, fitting and welding of steel, aluminum and exotic materials

CNC, Oxy-fuel and Plasma cutting machines able to handle materials up to 12 inches thick, 10 fee wide and 45 feet long

Shears and bending equipment for materials up to10 feet wide and one inch thick

Small and large cranes with up to 40-ton overhead lift capacity

View our full list of fabrication capabilities.



CRAFT Assembly

Because we provide complete manufacturing services, from engineering through final finishing, Craft Machine Works is an invaluable asset for its customers. Our large assembly shop houses a 40-ton overhead crane and mobile lifts to handle heavy components, and provides hydrostatic testing, load testing and operational testing for all pneumatic, hydraulic and electrically powered assemblies. As you can see from the included pictures, Craft can handle the largest fabrication projects.



CRAFT Finishing

With a dedicated, fully enclosed blast and paint facility, we tailor finishing to your needs and specifications with options of epoxy, urethane, alkyd enamels, coal tars and custom finishes. Our technicians perform blasting in accordance with Steel Structures Painting Council (SSPC) regulations, utilizing various blast media depending on the substrate material and specific customer requirements.

Painting processes include shop primers, enamels, epoxy systems, polyurethane finishes as well as coal tar applications. Craft also utilizes electronic mil thickness gages to verify the coating thicknesses from prime and intermediate coats through the final topcoats, assuring compliance and conformance to specification requirements.

Finished products are verified using blast profile comparisons; sling psychrometers and surface thermometers to test temperature, humidity and dew point to confirm environmental conditions are within specification requirements for process control and conformance.
