Our Capabilities


Custom Welding by Metal Fabrication Experts

SMF’s industry-leading fabrication & welding department is ready to tackle your next project. Our seasoned team has developed processes and procedures to ensure efficiency in cost, quality, and on-time delivery. We have successfully produced some of our field’s most challenging and complex welding projects. SMF employs robotic and conventional welding to handle projects of all shapes, sizes, & demand requirements. No project is too large for SMF’s multiple positioners and 40,000lb lifting capacity.

Types of Welding

SMF strives to offer the most comprehensive welding services. Our tools and machinery allow us to quickly and efficiently complete any project, ensuring high-quality and complete accuracy. As such, the welding services we offer include:

  • Robotic Welding – When welding projects become repetitive but must stay precise, robotic welding comes into play. Robotic welding uses mechanized programmable tools to automate the welding process. Such capabilities are incredibly beneficial for welding projects of a larger proportion.
  • Conventional Welding – Our standard welding process is best for custom jobs and special metal fabrication requests. As expert, certified welders, our team implements all welding types, such as tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding, metal inert gas (MIG) welding, and spot-welding.

Best Uses for Welding

As professional welders, we’ve helped businesses throughout the U.S. create the parts, tools and equipment they need to operate. We’ve welded for multiple industries, including commercial, automotive, electronics, agricultural, aerospace, medical, industrial and more. Here are some examples of the products we’ve helped produce through our welding capabilities:

  • Pipes
  • Brackets
  • Joints
  • Steel Beams
  • Metal Columns
  • Metal Frames
  • Platforms
  • Parts
  • Tools
  • And More
