Barnshaws Metal Bending – Hamilton, our branch in Scotland has completed four large cylinders for well-known fabricators from Aberdeen.
The scope of work included shearing 8 mm thick 2.5m x 10.1m free issue plates on a sheet metal guillotine and rolling them to 3m diameter 2.5m wide cylinders on plate rollers.
As rolled plates this size would simply collapse during transport a set of bespoke stiffeners were added to support the weight of cylinders.
John Chalmers, Director at Barnshaws Scotland, said: “Thanks to many years of experience, we were able to complete these works within only 5 days, while meeting the high quality standards of the oil and gas sector. Our talented operators are able to precisely complete any difficult task with high precision.”
Our Scotland branch is well known for offering our customers access to a wide range of metal bending options, including plate rolling. Thanks to that, our customers know that they will always receive a high-quality product in a short time. The division has extensive frequent supplies of metal elements to the construction, transportation, marine, oil & gas and energy sectors.
