Expansion Nearing Completion at Fab Masters Company

Fabricating - Aluminum Extrusions

Company Provides One-stop Machining, Fabrication, and Assembly

MARCELLUS, Mich.—Fab Masters Company, Inc. (FMC), an ISO 9001:2000-certified manufacturer of CNC-machined and fabricated metal parts, describes itself as a one-stop shop that is willing to accept new challenges and handle a wide array of fabrication needs. The company, nearing completion of a 31,000-square-foot expansion to its facility begun this summer, is a major provider of machining services to the extrusion industry in the Midwest. It also serves the medical industry, using extrusions and custom machining processes to produce parts used in bed rails, diagnostic equipment parts, dental X-ray equipment, and optical equipment. Fab Masters' machining projects have the company working with castings as well as intricate extrusions, ranging from miniature shapes up to 17-inch circle size in 6000 series alloys.

"We machine to customer specs," says Ronald Troxell, president of FMC. "We like to machine no tighter than + / - 0.005-inch in general, depending on span of dimension, et cetera. We do use probing to help in machining of extrusions that have large tolerances, or bow and twist to produce parts for fit, form, and function."

In addition to CNC machining, the company provides a certified aluminum and steel welding service (AWS D1.3-98, GMAW; AWS D1.2, GTAW). Fab Masters also takes responsibility for various finishing processes (deburring, anodizing, powder coating, and wet painting), and performs light assembly before shipping finished parts to its customer or its customer's customer. "We help control cost by handling their complete project, from acquisition of custom extrusions through delivery to their customer's door," says Troxell.

Fab Master's expansion, expected to be completed this month, has made room for a greatly expanded welding shop that includes an aluminum twin-arm robotic welder, along with eleven TIG and MIG welders. The new space will also house new saw-cutting machinery, including a B&O high-speed production saw with a cutting window of 12 inches by 36 inches.
