In our last post about short span bridge girders we showed some photos of the tub girders after we formed them in our long single ram press. In another process, we weld studs onto the bridge girders as shown in the photo below.
When customers face big challenges they search for a supplier of big ideas and big solutions. AT&F recently rolled nearly 9” thick flat plates into cylinders for just such a customer. The pressure vessel shell segments are a combination of 1/4" thick 304 Stainless Steel plate and 8 ½” thick carbon steel backer plate fused by the explosion cladding process. AT&F used the largest plate roll in North America to roll the thick flat plate into cylinder segments in just a few hours at its headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio.
Bridge girders, like the formed ones pictured below, will be used to replace tens of thousands of aging short span bridges throughout the country. These girders are a critical component of state-of-the-art bridge technology which drastically increases the speed that bridges can be built. See more about AT&F's bridge girder fabrication here.
We are packaging some beautiful stainless steel rail parts for shipment today. These parts will end up being used as side sills for locomotives.
We had the honor of having our customer on site to witness the inaugural use of our newest Cellulosic Ethonol unit.
