Fabrication

Where the required detail cannot be pre-designed into the aluminium extrusion profile shape itself, ABL has a full range of fabrication machines to complete the manufacturing process.

We will work with you to determine the best fabrication method based on

  • the amount of components to be produced
  • the batch quantities
  • the actual fabrication detail involved
  • the quality requirements
  • component tolerances

ABL Components has a large range of equipment which is capable of fabricating and machining aluminium extrusions from 25mm to 14 meters long with the ability to machine components to a high surface finish.

We are one of the few businesses in the country to be able to supply a start to finish experience with in house Stockholding, Cut to Length, Deburr, CNC Machining, CNC Bending, Powder Coating, Anodising & Customer designed bespoke packaging.

On many occasions if the machining is quite simple then aluminium extrusion or components can be punched or drilled at very competitive rates, especially if high volumes are involved.

ABL designs its own tools to ensure excellent quality components are produced to tight tolerances from aluminium extrusions, castings or sheet. This ensures that we keep set-up prices as low as possible which is particularly important for new products or projects, low quantity parts and product development or prototyping.
