Machining

 
 

Bending

We can bend tubing as well as sheet steel and aluminum
 

Laser Cutting

Our multiple lasers can cut steel up to 1/4" thick in most shapes imaginable. From customer bases to logo'd items, we have the ability to quickly go from design to prototypes to large scale production for a far lower cost than 3D printing
 

Swaged Tubing

An economical way to form leg ends, so one leg nests into another. A spring button can be an option. Swaging features close tolerances and provides great strength.  We are tooled up for 5/8", 3/4", 1", and 1-1/4" diameters. For other diameters - there is a one time, non-recurring setup charge. Available with and without optional Spring Button.
 

Drill or Punch Holes

We can add holes at the locations and in the size you designate. Specify if you need a hole countersunk
 

Tube Expansion Ring and Stop Line

We expand a line on an inner tube and a stop line on the outer tube. The expansion ring will hit the stop line when a tube is fully extended and prevent the inner tube from coming out
 

Tube Milling, Punching and Piercing

For small runs, we can mill out slots or other irregular shapes in a tube. For larger runs, our in house toolmakers can manufacture a die which is much more efficient for production
 

Threading

We can add a thread either directly into a surface, or add a threaded connector if needed
 

Notching

We can notch a tube to ensure a strong fit with a perpendicular crossbar
 

Round corners

We can add rounded corners to rectangular pieces of aluminum or steel sheets. This can reduce the risk of injury as well as improve the aesthetics of the product. If you have a specific radius in mind, please let us know
 

Imprinting

We have the ability to add logos to finished surfaces (including anodized shapes, powder coated surfaces, and acrylic) for branding where appropriate. This is done through direct to substrate printing. Size and shape restrictions do apply
 

Riveting

Testrite has deep experience in riveting, with over 30 riveting machines onsite. We can help identify the right rivet for your application
 

Cut to Size

Any of our materials can be ordered cut to the size you need. Specify if a high degree of precision or perfectly flat cut is needed.
 

Miter Cutting

We can cut our materials at 45 degree angles for right corners, or other angles (including compound angles) upon request
 

Welding

Testrite has a welding department with electrical and spot welding capabilities. We weld both aluminum and mild steel
 

Building Tools and Dies

For larger quantity jobs, we can use our catalog of 100s of dies or build new dies in house for efficient production. Dies enable us to improve consistency, improve speed by reducing the labor required for production, and often combine multiple operations into one step
 

Automatic Screw Machining

In large volumes, we can develop unique parts to be machined from a solid aluminum bar (or heavy walled hollow) on one of our 4 automatic screw machines. For smaller projects, we can use one of our many in house lathes. Our 98 years of experience and pre-existing tooling are a tremendous asset
