Allerton Steel completes complex fabrication for offshore sector

Allerton Steel has recently completed a complex fabrication with challenging machining requirements.

Measuring 3.5m x 2.5m x 2.4m the fabrication weighs in excess of 13.5 tonnes. Manufactured from S460 & S690 steel with plates upto 80mm thick.

The machined pocket 200mm x 77mm x 20 mm (coins used for scale) in various locations on the fabrication initially proved to be a challenge due to difficult access with close proximity to the side wall of the fabrication, use of conventional CNC Milling Machine was not possible. Therefore, a new right-angled specialist head was used allowing access for the cutting tool.

Operating from modern workshops and office facilities on two sites, with over 6,950 sq m (75,000 sq ft) capacity. The workshops offer a lift capacity up to 60 tonnes and are equipped with modern plant and machinery including semi-automatic welding, CNC operated profile, saw, drilling and milling machines. Additionally, we have a 3D modelling and surveying system to assist with complex fabrications and inspection.

CE Marked to Class 4 BS EN 1090, for highways bridges we are NHSS Sector 20 and RQSC qualified, for Network Rail-bridges we are RISQS qualified. We hold BS EN 9001:2015 and BS EN 18001:2007 and hold the BCSA Sustainability Award - Silver Standard and Construction Line - Gold Standard.

Allerton Steel is experienced in fabricating a wide range of road, rail, foot and bridleway bridges. In addition, we can offer installation services if required across the UK.
