This will become a “blast tank” for use by researchers for testing ballistic material at military research centers and universities. Here, we're working on it with our TOS WHQ 15 horizontal boring mill. It is being fabricated with 3/4” thick rolled plate with 1-1/2”...
We're working on component of a large test fixture that will have military applications when finished. It is being built with 5” thick 6061-T6 aluminum plate that is 66' by 89” and milled on our TOS boring mill.
Time for another game of count the processes! Today's contestants are two separate pieces that will be combined at a later stage. Show off your metalworking knowledge by telling us how you would make them.

It's time for a game of count the processes! Take a look at these two pieces on our shop floor and see if you can see what metalworking processes we used to create them. There is a ratchet wrench on one of them for scale.
To build these devices, we have to rely on pretty much every skill our crew has here at CMF - laser cutting, rolling, machining, welding, programming and engineering. What are they? They are air cannons that are used for materials testing. Our clients use them for...
Commercial Metal Fabricators has 53,000 square feet of manufacturing space on nine acres. Inside, we have 18' foot high bays, all of it covered by cranes with a maximum of 12 tons lift. We're just minutes from Interstates 75, 70 and 675 and US 35. [gallery columns="2"...
Designed, engineered and fabricated at Commercial Metal Fabricators, this is a QC fixture for checking welding on truck frames for the military.
Working closely with our client, our team created this QC text fixture for use in military applications. The machine frame held plus/minus .005 tolerance.
These are typical examples of parts that were fabricated and machined to become finished parts. After the plates and other pieces were plasma cut and the bars saw cut, the basic parts were formed and welded. They were then stress relieved. A program was developed to...
