Fabricated Stainless Steel Minor Ingredient Dump Station for an Industrial Conveying Equipment Manufacturer
At ADM Custom Metal Fabrication, we built the minor ingredient dump station highlighted here for a customer in the industrial conveying equipment industry. Having the right equipment in our shop, and a skilled, detail-oriented workforce enabled us to plan, execute, test, and inspect this assembly within a four week timeframe.
Featuring dimensions of 30" in length x 24" in depth x 40" in height, we constructed this dump station from T316 stainless steel materials, including 11 gage sheet, ½" thick round stock, and ¼" and 3/8" plate. Primary operations involved saw cutting, laser cutting, forming, and welding. By using a stud welding we ensured that the fasteners were strongly bonded to a flat, clean surface, leaving no risk of material entrapment. We finished the workpiece with deburring, sanding, and grinding to achieve smooth surfaces and clean edges, and then polished it to a #4 finish to ensure the surface was completely defect-free.
Constructed and assembled to within ± 0.015" tolerances, we conducted multiple inspections at all critical stages of production to verify that we satisfied the requirements of the customer specification. This dump station allows the minor ingredients to be dispensed with precise control, accuracy, and repeatability.
