About Metal Fabrication & Engineering
Metal fabrication is the building of metal structures by cutting, bending, and assembling processes. It is a practice that involves the production of machines, parts, and structures from various raw materials. Large fabrication workshops employ a large number of methods in one factory 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 machines, stairs and hand railings for buildings.
CNC Laser Cutting Services Near Strathmore
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 common commercial laser for cutting components included 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 routed 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 Strathmore
MIG welding is an arc welding method 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 procedure 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 components. Previously, some alloy steels and aluminum had to be welded with a torch, something that called for considerable skill and time.

CNC Folding, Rolling and Pressing in Strathmore
Metal folding or forming is basically 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 generally determined by the shape of the top or bottom instrument (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.
Casting Raw Materials
Metal fabricators have many standard raw materials at their disposal that can lower 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 enabling it to cool and harden in the desired shape. A high degree of custom flexibility makes casting a suitable choice for applications that require sophisticated 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 strategies 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 markets 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 elements and components. Before kicking off the metal fabrication process, it is helpful to understand which materials are available and appropriate for our unique application.
Galvanized Sheet Metal Fabrication Strathmore
Galvanized sheet metal is a steel or iron product that has a protective zinc coating to prevent rusting. The most typical method is hot-dip galvanizing, in which parts are submerged in a bath of molten zinc. This technique 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, protects against 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 Strathmore
If you require aluminum parts machined, we are one of the most qualified 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, widely used for less than 100 years.
Aluminum parts are economical, lightweight and attractive. Parts produced from this metal are routinely 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 toughness. It is resistant to rust as a thin protective layer is formed when subjected to the environment, preventing surface rust. Aluminum is chemical resistant, straightforward to machine, and has a high durability to weight ratio-- it weighs about one-third as much as steel.

About Strathmore, Melbourne
Strathmore is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia and is situated approximately 11 km north-west of Melbourne's central business district. Strathmore is part of the City of Moonee Valley local government area. At the 2016 Census, Strathmore had a population of 8,419.
The Tullamarine Freeway divides the suburb into northern and southern halves. When the freeway was upgraded by CityLink in the late 1990s, noise barriers were installed, which at the time of installation some residents feared would be like a 'Berlin Wall'.
The first land sales in the area of Strathmore were made in 1843 and 1845 in the Parish of Doutta Galla. Major Frederick Berkley St John was the purchaser of the Strathmore North area (Section 23). The other major purchaser (Section 15, Parish of Doutta Galla) covering the Strathmore area was Edward Jones Brewster. Both made significant fortunes from land speculation.
Brewster subdivided and sold 100 acres (400,000 m²) of land to Thomas Napier, who occupied the land and left a lasting legacy to the area – the origin of its name. The area of Strathmore was originally called North Essendon. The name of "Strathmore" was first suggested by the Rev. John Sinclair in 1936 and was initially adopted by the church. The name was derived from Thomas Napier's Scottish heritage, the Valley of Strathmore, Scotland close to where he once lived. The name was submitted to Essendon Council in 1943. In 1955 the Victorian Railways changed the name of the station from North Essendon to Strathmore.
Strathmore Post Office opened on 1 October 1953.
As a relatively unknown suburb, Strathmore's profile has been enhanced considerably following the construction of the Direct Factory Outlet shopping complex in December 2005 which is located on the Bulla Road turnoff on the Tullamarine Freeway next to Essendon Airport. The DFO, while enhancing Strathmore's profile and boosting the local economy, has resulted in heavy traffic. As a response new traffic lights have been installed on the complex intersection and nearby streets have been blocked to prevent spillover parking during busy periods.
Napier Park is a 10-acre (40,000 m²) block bounded by Woodland and Napier Streets, Noble Avenue and Glenbervie Road. It was donated to Essendon Council in 1920 by Theodore Napier, the son of Thomas Napier. It is a carefully preserved woodland block which gives visitors an idea of what the Strathmore Area was like prior to European Settlement. The park includes a stand of River Red Gums (Eucalyptus Camaldulensis). These trees are protected under the National Register of Significant Trees. There is only one other such stand of Redgums in the Melbourne area.
Boeing Reserve is a large reserve in Strathmore Heights, with two cricket ovals, three AFL ovals and a baseball field. The reserve takes up much of the suburb of Strathmore Heights, and has a large, wooden sculpture at the south end, it also has a function centre, football/cricket/baseball clubrooms, a toilet, drinking taps, several tracks and a playground, as well as a lot of open grass areas.
Other important landmarks are Essendon Airport, Moonee Valley Railway Viaduct, Tullamarine Freeway and the Moonee Ponds Creek.
Former Premier John Brumby is a resident of Strathmore.
