A wise man doesn’t know all the answers.
He just knows to ask the questions.
Here’s a few we’ve been asked…..

Services

What’s the first thing I need to work with Steeltech?

The first thing we will need is full dimensional drawings. You can either provide your own or work with our in house team to produce them.

What is considered a normal lead time?

This depends upon the complexity of the project, but in most cases you should allow for 3 to 4 weeks to complete your parts.

Can you handle rapid turnaround projects?

We always endeavour to meet your needs. However, we will be realistic with our lead time quotes and won’t make promises of deadlines we can’t make.

What sheet metal materials can you weld?

We can weld, using Tig (tungsten inert gas), Mig (metal insert gas) and gas welding mild steel, zintec, galvanised steel, stainless steel, brass and Aluminium.

Miscellaneous

What is Punching?

Punching is a metal forming process that uses a punch press to force a tool, called a punch, through the workpiece to create a hole via shearing. The punch often passes through the work into a die. A scrap slug from the hole is deposited into the die in the process.

What is TIG Welding?

TIG is short for Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW). In the TIG welding process, an arc is formed between a non-consumable tungsten electrode and the metal being welded. Gas is fed through the torch to shield the electrode and molten weld pool. TIG is most commonly used in high quality, high precision, welding applications.

What is Press Braking?

A press brake is a machine tool for bending sheet and plate material, most commonly sheet metal. It forms predetermined bends by clamping the workpiece between a matching punch and die.

What is MIG Welding?

MIG stands for Metal Inert Gas Welding. This is often referred to as wire-feed welding. MIG welding is a commonly used high deposition rate welding process. During the welding process, wire is continuously fed from a spool. MIG welding is sometimes referred to as a semi-automatic welding process.
