Custom Fabrication of a Dump Body for the Heavy Equipment Industry


A customer in the heavy equipment industry came to us for fabrication of a dump body. Using the latest fabrication technology available, we applied our cutting, bending, and machining capabilities to form the body from AR400 abrasion resistant steel plate. Our large welding robots and positioners ensured accurate and precise welds, which were UT tested to guarantee their strength. The dump body had an overall dimension of 5 to 6.5m long and 3 to 4m wide. We painted the body with primer and a fresh coat of yellow paint to meet the specifications of the customer. This order totaled 30-50 dump truck bodies per month.
