Fabrication

General Tool Company’s world-class precision fabrication group provides extraordinary capabilities to our customers. With nearly 3 dozen Certified Welders working in teams on two shifts, we perform aerospace, marine, and defense work to meet several welding codes. We are NADCAP Accredited for Welding, Brazing, and NDT.

Our modern fabrication facility has 30,000 square feet with a crane capacity of 40 tons. Our capabilities have been broadened by the addition of 2 Cloos 6 axis robotic welding cells with positioning tables for higher volume production.

Our 5 Axis Water Jet with 80,000 PSI cutting improves the quality of our weld preps and leaves no heat affected zone on the parts.

Our work envelope capability is very large as enclosed photos demonstrate.
