With dedicated workshops for carbon steel and stainless/alloy manufacture and modern equipment, Vessco delivers the highest quality vessels and columns. The workhorse tools of the trade include rotators, positioners, plasma cutters, guillotine, bevellers, roll former, gantry cranes, test and measuring equipment.
We have a limited machine tool capability including centre lathe, radial arm drill, pillar drills and our hydraulic metal worker. In addition we regularly call upon our sister company’s extensive and modern machine tool capability.
Our machine shop has 5 x CNC Machining Centres capable of a variety of cycles from the mass production of small diameter non ferrous components to the low volume production of large diameter, thick flanges and forgings in ferrous and reactive metals. Standing alongside such machines there are modified machining centres for fast precision edge prepping of plates with vertical and horizontal borers for producing large diameter girth flanges and penny ends.
Welding and fabricating form the core manufacturing activities of pressure vessel and column production. We have a large selection of welding machines and regularly utilise TIG, FCW, MCW, SMA, SAW and pulsed MIG processes. We have a library of welding procedures and qualifications for all the above processes in a wide variety of metals and alloys. Single processes and combination processes are utilised throughout the business on a daily basis.
