The experts at KOIKE
have worked for decades with top companies in the area of general fabrication.
Our combination of products and know-how allow our customers to stay ahead of
the competition. The types of cutting and welding done in general fabrication require unique
solutions for each application. Those in the general fabrication business
segment handle a wide variety of cutting and welding for their customers. They
often take new jobs that involve specialized requirements.
The large ranges of KOIKE standard and customized equipment are designed to meet the rigorous demands of our customers.
Cutting machines, such as laser, plasma, oxy-fuel and waterjet cutting are used to cut production parts such as brackets, gussets, flanges, covers, and other specialized parts. Our products range from small, one torch cutting machines, to large CNC gantry cutting machines with multiple torches. Parts are often made of very thick steel and require specialized bevels for welding in the next stage of fabrication. Large gantry cutting machines have the option to add plasma bevel cutting and oxy-fuel bevel cutting to the machine. Laser and water jet cutting machines can be equipped with three-dimensional bevel cutting heads.
Portable semi-automated cutting and portable welding carriage(s) are employed in difficult areas that are often done by hand. Productivity in these areas can often be increased up to three-fold.
The handling of large weldments and parts can be done safely by the use of positioning equipment such as gear driven positioners, headstock and tailstock sets, and turning rolls. Positioners reduce workload on overhead cranes and other handling equipment. Welds are done more efficiently and defects are reduced. Savings can also be seen in the reduction of wire and gas usage.
