Precision Metal Fabrication

Diamond Metal Products, Inc., a Minnesota corporation, faces complex requirements that are intricately connected to the needs and demands of our customers. Metal fabricators not only have to make quality products to exact specifications, but we have to match our production schedule to our customers and deliver products on time. Metal fabrication is a value added process that builds machines, structures, equipment etc., by cutting, forming and assembling components made from raw material using a variety of diverse pieces of equipment. A fabrication shop will bid on a job, usually based on, but not limited to, an engineered drawing, and if awarded the order will build the product.

The fabrication of the product is long and varied. There are multiple processes that are required to complete the product. Listed below is a brief description of some of the typical processes routed through our shop:

SHEARING/CUTTING

We have the capabilities of using a variety of materials, and depending on the layout of the part, it will be cut to size by a variety of processes. The most common is by a turret punch press. Here is a list of Diamond Metal Products standard punches. Other available options are water jet, laser jet, or plasma cutting.

GRINDING

Deburring, a process to remove sharp edges, burrs, and depending on the process, adds a "grain" in the material.

FORMING

Press brakes are the most common method of forming. The flat material is placed into the various shaped punch and die configurations to bend to the desired angle and form. Tube bending machines use dies to bend tubular sections without kinking them.

ROLLING

Rolling - machines are used to roll curves into material much like fire rings. They are also used to straighten plate steel.

WELDING

Welding is a process to unite the fabricated parts by applying heat, a filler rod and sometimes pressure to join the material together. See Weld Symbols for an explanation of print marks. Various ways of assembling a part could be by welding, resistance welding (spot welding - of which we spot weld steel, stainless steel and aluminum), riveting, or screwing together as a unit.

HARDWARE

Hardware typically means the installation of self-clinching nuts, studs, bolts and fasteners into the product to complete fabrication.
