Custom stainless steel fabrication benefits food-grade projects

Robinson Fabrication & Machine specializes in food industry stainless steel fabrication

Custom stainless steel fabrication expertise lies at the heart of virtually every food industry project imaginable, along with non-standard fabrication jobs such as ductwork and piping. Robinson Fabrication & Machine, a division of Robinson Metal, Inc., has the capability of producing a wide range of fabrication projects on the shoulders of the 20-ton lifting capacity available in its dedicated stainless steel area.

Stainless steel is the material of choice when there is a need to withstand sanitizing agents and cleaning compounds, or to prevent the accumulation of dirt or food particles. In addition to tables and work stations used in the food industry, stainless steel fabrication is useful in the construction of holding tanks, mixers, carts and ornamental items.

Robinson Fab & Machine’s ability to deliver custom stainless steel fabrication for a variety of project types makes it the supplier of choice for industries such as pharmaceutical, cheese and dairy production, meats and other food production.

“There really is very little within the custom stainless steel fabrication realm that falls outside of our capabilities,” notes Jamie Tilkens, Robinson Fab & Machine division manager. “Our team uses dedicated equipment within our stainless steel area to ensure carbon molecules do not contaminate the stainless steel parts.”

Frames, conveyors require custom stainless steel fabrication

Food-grade items often require stainless steel fabrication expertise due to the non-standard configurations needed within manufacturing facilities. Hoppers, guards and other stainless steel components often must meet food safety regulations for non-toxic materials.

Robinson Fab & Machine works with stainless steel grades of 304, 304 #4, 304L and 316L in many of its food-grade custom stainless steel fabrication projects. Surfaces must be smooth, corrosion-resistant and non-absorbent under use conditions.

“Our customers rely on us to deliver stainless steel projects that do not put their operations at risk,” Tilkens explains. “Food manufacturers, in particular, require a superior product.”
