Process: General Heavy Fabrication 15mm Plus

Overview

General heavy fabrication is a type of manufacturing that includes a combination of processes to make components of thick plate.
Fabrication is usually considered heavy fabrication when the plate's thickness exceeds 15 millimetres. The thick plate requires heavy machinery; for example, instead of using laser cutting, gas or plasma cutting might be more efficient. Also, presses need to be much more powerful to bend pieces of material. Naturally, this means that there are special workshops that have equipment and machinery to take care of the heavy fabrication.

The heavy fabrication manufacturers make components that often go into industries that make products which needs to withstand great forces such as the heavy vehicle or construction industry. It can be small components or large beams used in constructing buildings.

This company is looking for a supplier to undertake the manufacture and installation of two different designs of ramp that adhere to the requested specifications. The enquiry itself will be an excellent fit for those with immediate capacity, as a non-negotiable lead time of six weeks from order placement is required. With a £100,000 spend on the services of subcontract fabrication companies, the client may also wish to utilise the service of the chosen vendor within similar projects moving forward.

The manufacture of two different designs of furnace is required, by a company that outsources fabrication work to the tune of £200,000 a year. They are looking to grow their supplier base for these units - as well as similar designs - by building long-term relationships with new subcontract vendors. Interested parties will need to have the in-house facilities to handle fabrications of this size and weight, as well as the immediate capacity available to fulfil the initial order.

The client is looking for quotes on the piece parts for a frame, which will be used as part of a barn extension. There are sixty parts in total, which are to be fabricated from structural steel as per the drawings attached. The buyer has advised that there will be ongoing orders available, making this enquiry especially well-suited to those that are looking to add new names to their long-term customer base.

The buyer behind this enquiry requires the immediate manufacture of an industrial staircase, to be used as part of a silo project. The staircase will need to be fabricated in sections, in order to aid easy installation onsite. The chosen supplier will also be asked to provide a galvanised finish. Due to being let down by their current supplier, the client requires a prompt response, with interested parties quoting their best price and earliest lead time.

Quotes are required on the attached tower stringers and flat plates, on behalf of a company that outsources in excess of £350,000 worth of fabrication work every year. They are currently looking to increase their supplier base and subsequently, vendors with the required capabilities are asked to make contact at their earliest opportunity. The buyer has also advised that they may wish to utilise the services of the successful supplier within similar projects moving forward, meaning that there is plenty of scope to develop the relationship.

A range of fabricated parts and assemblies are currently sought, on behalf of a manufacturer of lifting equipment that currently does not have the capacity available to perform this work in-house. All of the items are to be made from stainless steel, in batches ranging from 1 to 4 off across the set. Moving forward, there is potential for ongoing work, as well as diversification into additional projects as they become available.

Suppliers that can provide the fabrication of bridge parapets are asked to get in touch with the buyer at their earliest opportunity. With a £20,000 spend on outsourced fabrication services, this item is too large for the client's in-house facilities and subsequently, they seek quotes for manufacture, delivery and installation. The stated specification must be stringently adhered to and ideally, the buyer would like to collaborate with a supplier that has experience in this type of work.

An array of large fabrications are required, on behalf of a company that specialises in the manufacture of lifting equipment for the marine industry. The buyer - who spends over £90,000 a year on subcontract fabrication services - would normally manufacture these units in-house, but due to running at full capacity, they are now keen to utilise the services of a third party for their production. They will place orders of the units in question approximately every three months.

This company specialises in the manufacture of signs and outsources fabrication processes to the tune of £50,000 a year. They would like to establish contact with third parties who are able to produce the attached unit, which is five metres in length. This has previously been manufactured in-house but due to a lack of capacity, the client would like to speak with external suppliers in regards to their production on this occasion. Moving forward, these units will be ordered on an ad-hoc basis, although the buyer may wish to utilise the successful supplier's services within additional projects.
