Heavy Equipment Fabrication for the Construction Industry
Construction projects always need high-quality equipment workers can rely on for safe performance, and APX York Sheet Metal aims to provide those services to businesses throughout central Pennsylvania and northern Maryland.
Due to how diverse their product catalogs often are, many construction OEMs will look to outsource some of their manufacturing processes to fabrication facilities, which helps with simplifying production and lowering costs. We utilize skilled experts and locally-sourced materials to offer all manners of custom steel fabrication for industrial construction, and we do so at competitive price points.
Throughout our 71 years of existence, we’ve developed a reputation as a fabricator that delivers excellent work and quick turnaround times. Your project will be no different.
Construction Equipment Part Fabrication
Within our 65,000-square-foot facility in York, PA, we utilize up-to-date technology — like different cutters, drills, welders, punches and other tools — to perform unique services, including laser-cutting, bending, welding, grinding and painting. Everything is kept in-house, which saves money and ensures your project only has to go through one place, as opposed to other competitors who frequently have to outsource different aspects of the process, like powder coating.
We primarily fashion construction equipment from different grades of steel and aluminum, which allows you to adjust the durability and weight of your products as necessary.
Some items are highly flexible with how you construct them — like deep drawn shells — which you can mold into sinks, auger housings and engine hoods on vehicles. Conversely, some metals hold certain advantages over others that make them better-suited for different kinds of equipment.
Stainless steel is a durable choice for creating large frames, mounts, plates and other heavy machine parts for standard vehicles, such as excavators, bulldozers, compactors and loaders. You can use it for plenty of standalone equipment, too, like structural frames and railings. It offers an array of resistances — including corrosion, moisture and bacterial — while holding up against heavy impacts and other wear.
Aluminum is lightweight, a tremendous conductor for heat and electricity and more malleable while still offering critical resistances to different environmental factors. To name a few applications, it’s useful for carts, electrical housings and certain machine parts that don’t carry large weight restrictions.
From small and quick to large and intricate, we can handle any request you bring to us. We will work closely with you to understand the specifications of your design, and we will also remain in open communication with you throughout production to ensure you receive the unique solution you’re looking for.
If you find that the first version doesn’t quite live up to the standards you set for it, we can implement modifications in the next run to improve the performance. We will keep going until we get it right. You won’t find that level of flexibility with any other local fabricator, nor from generic stock parts that come with general applications in mind.
