Fabrication of a Low Carbon Steel Muffler Heat Shield for a Construction Equipment Application

At Fabri-Tech, we have a long history of manufacturing premium quality custom metal components for the OEM industry. The generator guard shown here is constructed of 18 gauge cold rolled steel and is manufactured for a construction equipment application. Multiple fabrication processes were employed to create this custom guard including laser cutting, bending, and punching. We have an extensive number of in-house sheet metal fabrication capabilities that allow us to produce a wide variety of component types and sizes with maximum efficiency.

After fabrication, the welded assembly is powder coated with a solar black coating for performance, durability, and corrosion resistance. The front guard measures 312 mm in length, 275 mm in width, and 125 mm in height while the back cover measures 313.9 mm in length, 279 mm in width, and 132 mm in height. Tolerances as tight as ±0.25 mm and ±2° were held throughout the fabrication process. The annual usage on this part is approximately 10,000 units and lead time averages two weeks per production run for our customer who is located in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin.
