Metal Work for Safety
Metal Products for Safety
Tanfield’s range of metal spinning services, which includes pressing, machining, fabricating & welding, polishing, and bespoke metal spinning, enable us to produce a variety of safety equipment. Metal spun parts for safety can vary drastically in size, depending on their role. For example, a construction site gangway needs railings to ensure workers don’t fall off. However, the same workers might also need steel toe caps which are much smaller. This is why Tanfield’s capabilities make us ideal for doing metal spinning work in this industry.
Our experts can produce work up to a circumference of 2.4 meters and a thickness of 10mm. The result is Tanfield can produce the following metal safety parts:
- Warning devices such as bells and horns
- Storage vessels
- Tank heads
- Dished ends
- Bases and mounts
All our safety sector products can perform their intended function over a long lifespan, without a loss in effectiveness.
Capabilities used to Deliver Metal Spun Industrial Safety Products
At Tanfield, we use industry knowledge to match metal spinning services to our customers’ specifications. For instance, members of our metal spinning team might advise metal swaging or metal pressing to get the best results for a certain project. This also means that if you require unique safety products, we sit down to discuss what processes will get the best results.
We have a large range of automatic spinning lathes, hydraulic metal presses, swaging machines, and tools to create safety products. This gives us the capacity to scale operations in line with the needs of your project. Tanfield Metal Spinners prides itself on maintaining a 3-4 week lead time where possible. Resultantly, we ensure projects that require additional safety equipment aren’t faced with delays.
We understand that certain safety equipment must be able to withstand certain conditions, such as the effects of corrosion, blunt force, extreme temperatures, friction, crushing, and penetrating.
Tanfield has the capabilities necessary to perform and make adjustments in our metal spinning process to accommodate a wide range of materials including:
Specialist materials can be annealed for use when necessary. Tanfield also offers anodising as an additional treatment service to ensure safety equipment retains a high level of protection over time.
