At AEI Fab, Listening = Lasting Relationships

At AEI Fabrication, we specialize in fabrication and machining; however, we'd like to think we also specialize in LISTENING.  

We listen carefully to project details from potential new customers.  We listen to current customer project specifications and design needs.  We listen to the metal market's movements for ultimate cost efficiencies.  And, we listen to post-production comments after a fabricated or machined project or product has been completed to ensure our processes are spot-on.  We're always looking to execute our fabrication and machining processes in a more efficient way for YOU.

AEI Fabrication listens to ensure your fabrication and machining needs are met

Listening carefully has led us to projects and product creation in a variety of industry sectors including solar, construction & architecture, communications, traffic signal systems and industrial lighting to name a few.

AEI Fabrication specializes in many industry sectors including solar, wind power and alt energy

We listen carefully to YOU because we believe that listening and focused execution from listening create the perfect fabrication and machining process for your job.  The perfect process makes for a great customer experience for YOU and creates a lasting relationship -- the foundation for doing business.

Keep challenging us and let us know how we're doing for YOU.  We're listening.

Our Press Brakes Are Heavyweight Champions . . . Here's The Heaviest.

Over the years, boxing has had more than its share of trademark phrases.  'Fly like a butterfly, sting like a bee' comes to mind from the great boxing heavyweight, Muhammad Ali.

We think it's only fair when describing our champion heavyweight to let you know that it weighs in at  500,000 pounds, some 499,780 more than the invincible Ali.  And, our heavyweight has multiple 'legs', which would normally disqualify it from any competition if you weren't talking about metal fabrication.  So let's find out what our heavyweight is made of . . . 

Amada HG 2204 Press Brake for Metal bending, forming and fabrication

Our main heavyweight is our 14-foot, 250-ton Amada HG2204 Hydraulic Press Brake that handles a full range of material thicknesses in bend lengths from 55 to 169.3 inches. Equipped with a newly-developed AMNC 3i (intelligent, interactive, integrated) control, our HG-2204 provides high-speed and high-accuracy operations on every job.

AEI Fabrication Amada HG-2204 Press Brake for bending, forming and fabrication

A 19" multi-touch LCD panel ensures efficient operation with enhanced database network features that provide better communication between our design/engineering staff, the CAM program and the AMNC 3i — resulting in less manual interaction and faster processing for your part or project.

Additional features of the our HG-2204 14-foot, 250-Ton Heavyweight include:

  • Bend Indicator technology ensures high-speed and high-precision.
  • AMTS tooling provides the ideal solution for multi-stage bending.
  • Independent L-Axis (L-Shift) provides the capability to bend a wide variety of part shapes.

AEI Fabrication Press Brakes

And that's the tale of the tape from our heavyweight weigh-in.  If you want to get in the fabrication ring and go a few rounds with our heavyweight champion HG-2204, ring the bell -- we're at your service!  

At AEI Fabrication, it's in our blood to ask, 'What Can We Fab For You?'

In A Game Of Inches, We're A Player. We Can Laser Cut Metal Up To 1.5 Inch Thick.

We perform a variety of operations here at AEI Fab -- CAD/Design, Product Engineering & Development, Welding, Stamping, Bending & Forming, Assembly, Finishing, QC, Logistics and much more. But, one of the most unique services we offer is laser cutting, for the simple fact that we can laser cut just about anything.

Our AMADA LC3015 F1 NT laser cutting system (shown below) enables us to cut a universe of metal alloys up to 1.5-inch thickness with tremendous, error-free laser precision. Even the most complex designs are simplified and executed in 3X less time by our Amada laser cutting system, which is one of a handful in the United States.

The AEI Laser Cutting System Can Cut Most Metal Alloys Up To 1.5 Inches Thick
The LC3015 F1 NT is engineered to provide high-speed processing, ultra-precise accuracy, superior cutting quality and full-range capabilities. Featuring a 3-axis linear drive system, no lens change technology plus ultra-fast piercing and cutting, the LC3015 F1 NT brings AEI Fabrication's productivity and output to a new level, saving you additional money on every run of your job.

The LC 3015 F1 NT also utilizes a cell system approach to automation, allowing AEI Fabrication to select the optimum configuration best suited to your project production style and requested fabrication process. This system approach is designed to increase machine utilization for both high-mix/low-volume and high-volume production runs.

The LC3015 F1 NT can also cut the most intricate of patterns using its digital interface. As an example, see the 1/32" scrollwork in the 3-inch cross pendant below -- high art!

The next time you have the need for metal laser cutting, whether hairline designs or up to 1.5-inch metal thickness, call on us here at AEI Fab.  We'll get in the game for you to ensure you win on quality, price and efficiency with your product/project delivered on time, every time.

  • We continued incredible laser and fab work of nearly indestructible alloys for lifting mechanisms used in sanitation truck manufacturing;
  • We fabricated a plethora of architectural designs for commercial construction;
  • For a second year in a row, we fabricated Vintage Mini Racers for the Grand Prix of Scottsdale that are getting attention from Pebble Beach to Detroit;
  • We created parts for a variety of alternative energy projects; and,
  • We even had our two 2016 candidates for President of the United States take a spin in their AEI Fab Vintage Mini Racers(!).

Yes, it's a new year. Fab days lie ahead & we can't wait to see what 2017 brings.  We're grateful for your business and want you to know your satisfaction is our main priority.  No matter the year, at AEI Fab we always strive for perfection and will continue to inquire -- What Can We Fab For You?
