About Metal Fabrication & Engineering
Metal fabrication is the building of metal structures by cutting, bending, and assembling processes. It is a procedure 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 companies 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 Avondale Heights
Laser cutting is a technology that makes use of 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 traditional commercial laser for cutting components entailed 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 guided 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 Avondale Heights
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 called for considerable skill and time. Both services are offered by Australian General Engineering in Melbourne, for more information on metal MIG & TIG Welding in Avondale Heights
CNC Folding, Rolling and Pressing in Avondale Heights
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 typically 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 typical 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.
About Avondale Heights, Melbourne, Victoria
Avondale Heights is a suburb 12 km north-west of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Its local government area is the City of Moonee Valley. At the 2011 Census, Avondale Heights had a population of 10,990.
Avondale Heights is located on a plateau bounded by a large bend of the Maribyrnong River to the east, south, and west, and to the north by Buckley Street.
The suburb derives its name from the Avondale Estate. Originally known as Maribyrnong West, when the Council undertook to change the name, postal authorities drew attention to the existence of Avondale in Queensland. The suburb was therefore called Avondale Heights to distinguish it from the Queensland town.
Walter Burley Griffin and Marion Mahony Griffin prepared plans for part of the area: Milleara Estate in the north (also known as City View) in the 1920s. One objective of their design was to remake suburbia and society. They did this through creating internal gardens where communities could both physical and socially bind together. They imagined children's playgrounds, social centres, nature reserves and links with an intricate system of pedestrian ways. Interviewed in Melbourne in 1913, Griffin spoke of internal reserves as;
'…favourite playgrounds. Here all the children from the different houses can play together, where their mothers can see them, and where they are safe from the motor traffic in the streets.'
The streets are designed in a curvilinear way typical of the Griffin's design, often following the topography of the land.
There is only one main road - Military Road which runs from Canning Street and Maribyrnong Road, then becoming Milleara Road. There are about 40 shops at the Canning Street end (including Raglan street) and 20 at the other end, near the St Martin De Porres Primary School.
Four bus routes service the suburb:
- 406 Footscray – East Keilor via Victoria University, Highpoint SC, Avondale Heights (every day). Operated by CDC Melbourne.
- 407 Highpoint SC – Avondale Heights via Milleara Mall SC (Monday to Saturday). Operated by CDC Melbourne.
- 465 Essendon – Keilor Park via Buckley Street, Milleara SC, Keilor East (every day). Operated by Ryan Brothers Bus Service.
- 903 Altona – Mordialloc SC via Essendon, Northland SC, Box Hill, Chadstone SC (every day). Operated by Ventura Bus Lines and CDC Melbourne.
Recreational and commuter cyclists have easy access to the Maribyrnong River Trail along the Maribyrnong River.
