Custom Industrial Equipment
Astro Metal Craft was founded in 1987 as a fabricator of custom industrial equipment primarily for the food processing industry. We have since expanded to a greater variety of industries. The types of industrial equipment we fabricate include machine frames, stainless steel tanks, screening and filtering equipment, stainless conveyor belting, spiral chutes, food dryer plates, and most recently, industrial equipment for the railroad industry.
We are able to fabricate high-quality specialty products and component parts for the railroad industry. Astro builds high-tolerance steel parts for train systems that need unique, custom parts and equipment. Our scope of work for railways include (but not limited to) wagon parts, fresh and grey tanks, rail bracketry, rail switches, switch rods, rail crossings, sliding chairs, plus railroad cantilevers.
Our Trumpf TruPunch machine gives us sheet metal perforating capabilities. Combining perforating with the welding, laser cutting, forming and more, gives us the ability to fabricate complex designs all in our shop. This is why we are able to delight our clients in their needs for custom industrial equipment.
