New Fresh Produce Modular Frame for Marco

New Fresh Produce Modular Frame for Marco

Pipecraft Innovations joined forces with Marco’s Design & Manufacturing team in order to secure the volume contract for the next generation of Fresh Produce Modular Frame as part of their Innovative Productivity Systems.

Metal Fabrication & Tube Bending Expertise

We initially produced a sample of the production frame to demonstrate the metal fabrication skills and expertise we have at the Lancing facility, particularly with precision tube bending and high quality finishing. The brief was to produce the finished frame, with its slick and clean lines, along with in-house machined components welded and then finished in their polishing shop prior to bead blasting.

The Stainless Steel frame has the primary requirement of being functional and robust, but with the additional specification of being stylish in order to enhane the strong technical product ethics for which Marco Limited has gained a global reputation.

Tube bending for Ricardo, Sussex

Sussex-based pipe and tube bending company, Pipecraft, are proud to have been working with Ricardo in Shoreham-by-Sea, Sussex – a leading provider of engineering solutions to the world’s automotive industries, for many years.

Pipecraft supply Ricardo with mandrel bent components vital to the manufacture of many of their products.

This particular order was for the manufacture of bespoke inlet and exhaust manifolds for testing of automotive development engines.

It involved a highly complex process, encompassing a variety of stainless and mild steel mandrel bent components, CNC machined flanges and turned unions brought together via high quality Tig welding.

The tube bending components were supplied in both satin polished and powder coated mild steel materials.

Prestigious Art Deco Stainless Steel balcony

Prestigious Art Deco Stainless Steel balcony

As part of a multi-million pound project at a private residence based just outside of Manchester, Pipecraft were appointed to replace a Victorian wrought-iron balustrade with a mirror-polished steel balcony to compliment the Art Deco styled interior and create an impressive centrepiece within the entrance area.

The task of producing the intricately curved structure was awarded to specialist pipe and tube bending company Pipecraft for its ability to handle the metal fabrication and tube bending all under one roof from its facilities in West Sussex. Being able to handle the entire project from the initial prototype stage to final finishing gave Pipecraft the advantage over other tube bending companies.

Working directly with the client, we brought their specification to life by advising on suitable sizes, materials and finishes, drawing on our specialist tube bending and tube manipulation expertise. The process involved the manipulation of solid tubular stainless steel rolled with a bow-fronted centre section, then lovingly fabricated without any weld faces being visible.

This 500 kilo masterpiece was finally mirror-polished before being carefully wrapped and delivered to the client’s property.

The end result is a magnificent example of highly-skilled metal fabrication and tube bending brought together to create a stunningly unique piece of architecture that will greet everyone entering the property.  Visit metal furniture to find out more about our services.
