house liftsWhat makes custom welding so exciting is the fact that many of our customers come to us with a problem that needs to be solved. Through our experience and skills, we’re able to provide a solution like this one, which made an otherwise challenging job easier!

What exactly are those things?

liftsThe pictures in the post are of objects used to lift houses and buildings to re-level them after they have settled. There were 20 pieces total that we created. There is not much industrial support for that type of work, though it’s needed! We’ve done quite a few custom one-off projects for our customers, and lately, their projects have been getting bigger, so they need more than one or two things at a time.

ACW’s plasma table gets the job done

lifts for relevelingA few months back, we wrote about a cool new plasma table we purchased to better serve our customers through custom projects and light production. Using the plasma table, we were able to do in a couple of days what would previously have taken by hand over a week of cutting and drilling to accomplish. What a difference! The table also made all the pieces identical. This was critical as the two center holes had to be exact. By cutting notches in the outer sides of the brackets, every single one went together exactly right.  The only real labor time was in welding, of which there was a lot! Almost 11 feet of weld per bracket!

This was a great project to really put our new plasma cutting table to the test! Need one-off custom pieces created, or light production of machine parts? Reach out to us and see how Affordable Custom Welding can help!
