Manufacturing Capabilities

FABSEC® has a licensed manufacturing capacity in excess of 60,000 tonnes per annum. The two fabricators are Severfield and Cellbeam Ltd, a subsidiary of William Hare Ltd. Through these modern, low-cost manufacturing plants Fabsec offers not only stringent quality assurance and customer focus, but also an innovative product range.

Through significant and strategic investments FABSEC® beams are manufactured using the UK's most modern beam welding capability. The plate feedstock goes through web and flange profiling equipment during which the cells are cut and the pre-camber formed.

The webs and flanges are shot-blasted and then joined using submerged-arc, wholly automatic welding. Fire protection can be applied as an optional final process in factory-controlled conditions.

FABSEC's production capabilities permit the manufacture of a wide variety of section sizes, spans and configuration. Plate thicknesses ranging from 6mm to 120mm can be accommodated. Manufacture utilises highly efficient CNC machines which boast rapid production speed - the welding time for a typical web to flange weld exceeds 1 metre per minute. Unlike some alternatives, manual welding is only ever required for unusual shaped beams and for fittings - the main 'carcass' of the beam is machine welded to a very high level of quality.

Steel is 100% recyclable and can be recycled again and again, without degradation  of its properties  or performance
