Metal cutting and shaping
Cutting is the first stage of processing to make every project precise. B.Metal employs highly specialised staff and advanced machinery on a useful 12,000mm by 3,000mm floor area. The company can make cuts of any size with classic computerised belt miter saws, disc-cutting chop saws, acetylene torch beams and plates, and pantographs with benches for numerical control.
In additional to cutting and shaping, B.Metal also provides sheet and metal plate bending up to a 100mm thickness with a last-generation MH4-roll MG rolling press.
Specialised B.Metal workers employ carpentry to prepare handmade products for welders. They carry out step-by-step assembly of various elements that vary in size and thickness for a range of different technical projects.
Carpentry is a crucial phase for the final outcome, with precision and attention to detail essential for the installation of structures all over the world.
Piping is the specialised part of carpentry. B.Metal produces piping in any size and type for the chemical, petrochemical, steel, thermal ecology and aqueduct sectors. It provides joints for glass, socket, rapid and flange soldering and production accessories such as faucets, gates, manometers, safety valves and condensers. The company always verifies the seal based on characteristics requested by the client, and tests using high-pressure equipment.
Welding is the most delicate and important part of the engineering sector. Each type of material and thickness must be treated with great care and accuracy to certify and guarantee seal, durability and accuracy of the work which was ordered.
B.Metal deals with all kind of soldering using cutting-edge technologies, including submerged-arc with a manipulator, continuous wire (FCAW), and TIG. It ensures constant quality control through the use of non-destructive testing (NDT).
Sandblasting and painting
The phase following metalworking consists of solder dross cleaning and the removal of oil, grease and various kinds of stain.
B.Metal’s 600m² booth with aspiration allows greater abrasive power, dust collection and recycling for painting and iron grit sandblasting after cleaning. The booth is equipped with a bridge crane at an 8m working height, with an overall depth of 18m by 30m.
