Our fully integrated contract manufacturing and machining services positions us as a leading supplier of large fabrications, heavy weldments and assembly services to the most demanding customers in the world. These large fabrications and assemblies include base plates and foundations for industrial-sized compressors, generators and turbines; large oil pans, precision heat platens for plywood and strand board production, sanitary pressure vessels, and hydraulic presses. With more than 200,000 square feet of manufacturing space located in Erie, PA, Custom is ideally suited to support OEMs from the east Large fabricationscoast and mid-west through the south and central USA. Complete list of fabrication capabilities and  equipment.

Material Processing
We can provide all materials required for your job eliminating the need to supply your own steel or order custom sizes to be delivered. Our multiple burn tables effeciently size raw materials for production. Capabilities include:

  • Burning (Plasma, Oxy-fuel, Beveling)
  • Forming
  • Sawing

Welding Capabilities
Welding and large-scale weldments are central to our fabrication process. Typically, manufacturing parts and components from steel plate requires cutting and welding versus bending metal. With nearly 30 certified welders and sophisticated fit-up structures, Custom is capabale of welding large components while holding vary close tolerence. We're well-versed in all forms of welding including: Robotic welding operations
  • Tungsten Inert Gas (Tig)
  • GMAW (Mig)
  • FCAW (Flux Core)
  • SAW (Sub Arc Welding) 
  • Welding Overlays  -  Corrosion resistant welding (Inconel)    
Robotic Welding
We've invested in robotic welding to maximize efficiency in repetitive assembly of standard pieces. Our robotic welding is also used on critical applications where components must be defect-free. To learn more about our robotic welding and how it can benefit your products, click here. 

Precision Fit-Up
Having a proper foundation to begin manufacturing is critical when you're welding large scale components. We have engineered complete floor or base systems that can hold close tolerance, squareness, flatness and parallelism. These unique fit-up capabilities are the foundation of our estabilishing "best practices."

Material Finishing
At Custom Engineering Company, we take the environment very seriously and only use EPA approved products.  We only use products, that when properly mixed, release volatiles into the environment that are within legal limits.
