Capabilities

  • DesignOpen or Close

    Our team of technical engineers work closely with you to understand your specific requirements. We then translate this into the perfect design solution. Allsops uses the best CAD design software: Radan, Inventor and SolidWorks 3D software. We also offer prototyping.

  • PunchingOpen or Close

    Allsops has invested in the latest punching technology. We are able to meet deadlines and reduce costs. Our automatic load and unload facilities enable us to run a lights-out facility to meet your tight deadlines. Allsops' punching facilities include Pullmax's 720 punch and 126 machines.

    The Pullmax 720 has a maximum working range of 3090mm x 1725mm and can easily accommodate the standard sheet size of 3000mm x 1500mm. The axis speed is 128m/min, with accuracy of 0.1mm per metre. We are capable of punching up to 3mm with a press capacity of 220KN-300KN (24–33 tonnes) and can use between 20 and 200 tools. We produce precision components fast.

  • Laser CuttingOpen or Close

    We offer the latest laser-cutting technology from Bystronic with 24/7 facilities and automatic sheet loaders to enable unmanned running. This allows us to run our lights-out facility to meet your tight deadlines. We are able to handle brass, zintec, galvanised, aluminium, mild and stainless steel.

    The maximum sheet thickness that can be cut is 20mm in mild steel, 15mm in stainless steel and 8mm in aluminium with an accuracy of 0.1mm.

  • FoldingOpen or Close

    Allsops offers precision folding capabilities using our in-house equipment. We have invested in the latest Salvagnini panel bending machine, P4Xe-2516. The machine covers the widest range of applications in the panel forming field on the market. It can make bends up to 2500mm long and 165mm high. It has four universal bending tools for maximum versatility. The Salvagnini P4Xe-2516 minimises wastage and is highly efficient meaning we can achieve the very best folding service. It complements our existing Motoman Robot, enabling optimised and consistent pressing with unmanned production, five times faster than conventional press brakes. We also have 11 CNC press brakes bending up to 250 tonnes, using the Bystronic Edwards Pearson P250 and the Hammerlee P130 with 3-point bending and an accuracy of 0.5 degrees over 3m.

  • Welding and FabricationOpen or Close

    Allsops is proud to employ over 60 skilled engineers, fully trained in working with numerous metal types and welding disciplines including TIG, MIG, MMA, spot and hand-held spot welding. Our facilities comprise a fully automated Fanuc robotic welding cell with a turntable.

    Our lifting capabilities include both 5 tonne, 4m high cranes and 3 tonne, 3.2m high cranes. We have 2.5m-long power rollers, bead-blasting cabinets, various linishing machines, a Haeger Pem and rota stud machines.

  • Powder CoatingOpen or Close

    Allsops have invested heavily in our powder-coating operation and offer 2 purpose-built conveyorised paint plants with 3-stage iron phosphate and zinc phosphate pre-treatment, fully automatic or manual. We also offer a 4m box oven. We are an AkzoNobel-approved coater.

    We can accommodate parts up to 1400mm deep, 5500mm long and 1000mm wide. Our painting lines can run at speeds of up to 2.5m a minute in automatic mode. The quality is checked continuously with a paint thickness, scratch and cure test. The skilled painters are also able to provide perfect finishes by hand on intricate work. We stock a wide range of colours and finishes including satin, gloss, matt, leatherette, texture and plasticoat finish.

  • AssemblyOpen or Close
