The power behind energy providers? It’s sheet metal fabrication!

Date: 15/12/2020

Many industries rely on sheet metal fabrication to thrive – but in the energy sector it’s proven to be absolutely vital.

Power generation is a critical part of the country’s infrastructure, with residential, governmental and commercial properties all relying on a consistent supply of energy.

The equipment used in power generation must perform without failure for long periods of time, and often in harsh weather conditions.

Sheet metal fabrication companies provide energy suppliers with rapid assistance and product development to effectively keep our lights on. 

What kind of items are manufactured?

Sheet metal fabrication specialists provide the energy sector with skilled design, laser cutting, fabrication and installation capacity and due to the demands of the industry need to finish projects reliably, affordably and often on short timescales. 

Power generation firms require products such as:

  • Ducting and venting;
  • External kiosks
  • Sub-station roofs
  • Control panels
  • Security doors;
  • Pylon fixing bracketry;
  • Copper earthing equipment and bespoke enclosures.

For example, enclosures manufactured for power generation must be robust and durable and made of high-quality stainless steel that will resist extreme weather events, bringing together component parts easily and ensuring minimal maintenance time for crews.

Laser cutting service

Because of the competitive and fast-paced nature of the industry, cost-effectiveness in the power generation/energy sector is absolutely crucial.

Thankfully, laser cutting services have revolutionised the way energy suppliers approach the manufacturing of components.

Lasers cutters’ precision to less than a millimetre makes them ideal for industries where incredibly small dimensional tolerances are vital – hence the importance of a good laser cutting service to power generation firms. 

Also, the expansion of greener energy generation from sources such as solar and wind also increase the need for precision parts, produced quickly and cost-effectively through laser cutting.
