At J&E Companies we can combine powder coated fabrications with stainless steel into a single unit, which is exactly what was required by this project. Working from our customer’s specifications and 2D CAD drawings, we began with cold rolled galvannealed steel and 304 stainless steel, ranging in thicknesses from 0.0239” to 0.0598” (24 GA to 16 GA). Our laser cutters carefully outlined the necessary sheet metal blanks, which were then turret punched, formed, and edges ground. The stainless steel was finished to a #4 brush finish. Following preparation to remove soil, lubrication greases, metal oxides, and welding scales, the galvannealed steel was powder coated to improve corrosion resistance and durability. The entire unit was welded together using spot welding and finally, dimensionally and visually inspected. The information kiosk was 48″ long, 36″ wide, and manufactured to precision tolerances of ±0.005”. From design to delivery, we took only six weeks to manufacture 35 of these information kiosks for our customer in Minneapolis, MN.
At J&E, we can quickly and easily fabricate and finish disparate materials into a completed unit that will receive rugged use in a high-traffic consumer environment. For more information about our sheet metal fabrication skills, contact us today.
