About Metal Fabrication & Engineering
Metal fabrication is the building of metal structures by cutting, bending, and assembling processes.
It is a method that involves the production of machines, parts, and structures from various raw materials. Large fabrication workshops employ a wide range of methods in one shop or facility including welding, cutting, forming and machining. Australian General Engineering provides such services to Melbourne based suburbs and across Australia.
Metal fabrication projects usually start with shop designs including precise measurements, then move to the fabrication phase and finally to the installation of the final job. Fabrication facilities are employed by contractors, OEMs, and VARs. Typical projects include loose parts, structural frames for buildings and heavy gear, stairs and hand railings for buildings.
CNC Laser Cutting Services Near Airport West
Laser cutting is a technology that utilizes a laser to cut elements and is used for industrial manufacturing applications. Laser cutting works by directing the output of a high-power laser most generally through optics. The laser optics and CNC (computer numerical control) are used to direct the material or the laser beam generated. A regular commercial laser for cutting components consisted of a motion control system to follow a CNC or G-code of the pattern to be cut onto the material. The focused laser beam is pointed at the material, which then either melts, burns vaporize away, or is blown away by a jet of gas, leaving an edge with a high-quality surface finish. Industrial laser cutters are used to cut flat-sheet material as well as structural and piping components. For more information contact Australian General Engineering for a custom quotation.

MIG & TIG Welding Services in Airport West
MIG welding is an arc welding procedure in which a continuous solid wire electrode is fed through a welding gun and into the weld pool, joining the two base materials together. Shielding gas is also sent through the welding gun and protects the weld pool from contamination. MIG stands for "Metal Inert Gas." The technical name for it is "Gas Metal Arc Welding" (or GMAW), and the slang name for it is "wire welding."
TIG stands for Tungsten Inert Gas and is technically called Gas Tungsten Arc Welding or GTAW. The method uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode that provides the current to the welding arc. The tungsten and weld puddle is protected and cooled with an inert gas, typically argon. TIG welding is similar to oxy-acetylene welding in that you use a filler material for build-up or reinforcement. TIG welding is often referred to as Heli-arc welding, originating from an early Hobart "Heli-Arc" machine. The name comes from using helium gas as a shield around the electric arc. TIG welding was developed in the 1930s and was used during World War 2 as the preferred way to weld many aircraft elements. Previously, some alloy steels and aluminum had to be welded with a torch, something that demanded considerable skill and time.

CNC Folding, Rolling and Pressing in Airport West
Metal folding or forming is merely the process of applying one or bends to a sheet of metal by securing the sheet at a certain point and administering enough pressure to fold the metal.
The angle of the bend is normally determined by the shape of the top or bottom device (usually a "V" shape) and also the pressure applied.
At Australian General Engineering, we have a range of folding possibilities, including press brakes, automated panel folding and robotic.
The conventional and most typical method of folding is to use a press brake device. We have several press brakes which form bends by clamping the metal sheet between a punch and die (top tool and bottom tool. An operator will feed in the sheet to a pre-set back stop and hold the material in place while the press brake applies the bend.
Casting Raw Materials
Metal fabricators have countless standard raw materials at their disposal that can decrease cycle times and workflow. Casting, a fabrication process that has been in use for over 6,000 years, involves forcing liquid metal into a mold and permitting it to cool and harden in the desired shape. A high degree of custom flexibility makes casting a suitable choice for applications that require intricate geometries. Raw materials used in the process typically include molten metal, but epoxies, concrete, and clay are also used. Common metals used in the casting process include:
Common fabrication approaches include welding, lathing, broaching, grinding, milling and honing, though many metal fabrication shops offer a variety of specialties that may be well-suited to your specific needs. A vital process for virtually all manufacturers, metal fabrication, ranges from sectors such as automotive and electrical to food and beverage. Over the years, the use of popular raw materials has resulted in the standardization of many fabrication components and components. Before initiating the metal fabrication process, it is helpful to understand which materials are available and appropriate for our unique application.
Galvanized Sheet Metal Fabrication Airport West
Galvanized sheet metal is a steel or iron product that has a protective zinc coating to prevent rusting. The most standard method is hot-dip galvanizing, in which parts are submerged in a bath of molten zinc. This approach provides corrosion protection, durability under harsh conditions, a long lifespan, versatility, availability, and sustainability.
Galvanizing protects the underlying iron or steel in the following main ways:
The zinc coating, when intact, stops corrosive substances from reaching the underlying steel or iron. The zinc serves as a sacrificial anode so that even if the coating is scratched, the exposed steel will still be protected by the remaining zinc. The zinc protects iron by corroding first. For greater results, application of chromates over zinc is also seen as an industry trend.
Aluminum Sheet Metal Fabrication Airport West
If you require aluminum parts machined, we are one of the most equipped and cost-effective sources, and we can finish the job right.
Aluminum is the third most abundant aspect in the earth's crust after oxygen and silicon and is a relatively brand-new commercial metal, thoroughly used for less than 100 years.
Aluminum parts are economical, lightweight and attractive. Parts produced from this metal are commonly less costly because they can be machined in less time than lots of other metals such as steel and do not need extra surfaces. As the pure metal is soft, small amounts of copper, magnesium, zinc and other aspects are added for durability. It is resistant to rust as a thin protective layer is formed when subjected to the environment, preventing surface rust. Aluminum is chemical resistant, easy to machine, and has a high durability to weight ratio-- it weighs about one-third as much as steel.
The specialists at Australian General Engineering, located in the Melbourne area, strive to provide consumers with a wide variety of quality fabrication and sheet metal services.
Victoria, Australia-- Manufacturing is an essential aspect of modern consumerism, so having dependable and top-of-the-line manufacturing equipment is important for large industries to remain successful.

About Airport West, Melbourne
Airport West is a suburb 11 km north-west of Melbourne, Australia. Its local government area is the City of Moonee Valley. At the 2011 census, Airport West had a population of 6,959.
Bounded by the Calder Freeway to the south, the Tullamarine Freeway to the east, and the Western Ring Road to the north west, Airport West is so named for its position to the west of Essendon Airport, Melbourne's first general airport now used for light planes, charter and freight since the opening in 1970 of Melbourne Airport, located to the north of the suburb.
It has the distinction of being the only locality in Australia which does not itself contain an airport to contain the word "Airport."
The present Airport West post office opened on 22 November 1982. The Niddrie North office which opened in 1960 was known as Airport West between 1974 and 1982, before reverting to Niddrie North.
Tram route 59 travels from Westfield Airport West (at Matthews Avenue), then runs via Matthews Avenue, Keilor Road, Mount Alexander Road, Fletcher Street, Pascoe Vale Road, Mount Alexander Road, Flemington Road and then terminates at the corner of Elizabeth Street and Flinders Street, at Flinders Street Station.
The Albion-Jacana freight line passes through Airport West near its north and west boundary. A railway line to Melbourne Airport via Airport West has been proposed under The Greens 2008 People Plan.
The currently congested Tullamarine Freeway and Calder Freeway interchange saw a redevelopment to help traffic flow easier in 2006–2007.
Seven bus routes also service the suburb, and a NightRider Bus Service also operates around the area.
