Tig Welding, Guillotining and Press Brake

In this article we will explore Newton Abbot Engineering Case Study which included using tig welding, Guillotining and Press Brake work.

Our client had recently purchased several new Lorries as part of the expansion of his locally owned line marking business.  After contacting RB Engineering he visited the workshop to discuss the work that was required.

Newton Abbot Engineering Case Study

Fitting of the new fabricated tank

Materials used by the team for this work was, mild steel plate and various hydraulic fittings.

The work entailed, fabricating and installing hydraulic tanks, fabricating and mounting manifolds for Gas Supply Compressors, fitting various pipe associated brackets and modification of aluminium fuel tanks.

In 4 days’ time the Lorries would be needed for contract work and the deadline was set for this time scale.

The measurements for the hydraulic tank had to be precise to ensure that the tank was not affected when the cab was tipped.   Pipe sizes for the hydraulic flow between the tank and the pump needed to be worked out correctly.  The tank has to fit into a specific space and hold the 250 litres of oil with allowances for expansion.

On completion of the fabrication work tests were carried out including pressure testing the tank to 8psi and no leaks were found.  The tank was then painted with a coat of coast etch primer and two coats of top white coat.

The finished items were then taken to the client’s premises where the tank was fitted and the hydraulic pump was bolted on.  All of the hoses were connected and the tank was filled with hydraulic oil.  A test run was successfully completed.

The deadline was met and the client was able to fulfil his contracts on time.

The client had visited the workshop daily to witness the progress of the work and discuss the fittings of all the parts.  He was more than happy with the end results and has since become one of RB Engineering’s top customers.

This case study is typical of the kind of work RB Engineering do.  If you would like further information, please feel free to call the workshop on Tel: 01626 865951.
