It offers full manufacturing capabilities allowing complete, high-quality fabrication of Forney burners, igniters, flame detectors/scanners, and associated equipment.
Fully certified AWS and ASME welders at our Monterrey plant use an array of advanced AC and DC welding machines. These GTAW (gas tungsten arc) machines include pulse GTAW, orbital- and fixed-head GTAW for mechanized welding of piping, both semi-automatic and mechanized GMAW (gas metal-arc) and FCAW (flux core) plus PAW. We ensure compliance with industry standards with full Radiographic Testing (RT) and 100% visual inspection in accordance with ASNT Level II of all welding and leak testing of all pressure pipe welds. Third-party RT is also available.
Our experienced metalworkers are skilled in all grades of metal including carbon steel, stainless steel and higher alloys, and aluminum using the latest cutting, milling, and turning equipment. At the service of your order’s specifications are
• 1 high-definition plasma cutting machine
• 3 conventional lathes
• 2 CNC lathes (± .001”)
• 3 CNC machining centers
• 3 milling machines and
• 2 (24”) Do all saws
In addition, our sheet-metal machines include 2 press brakes, 2 shearing machines, 2 sheet metal rolling machines and 1 CNC turret press.
The Monterrey plant’s sand-blast booth and paint booth provide coatings for metalworking products with full liquid painting capabilities. Sand-blast booth capacity is 4.7m x 12.7m x 4.1m (width, length, height), with similar capacity in our paint booth (4.5m x 12.6m x 3.7m).
Assembly and testing of mechanical and electrical components and systems are the Monterrey plant’s bread and butter. Skilled workers at ESD (electrostatic discharge) workstations assemble and test printed circuit boards, cable and wire harnesses, and complete BMS systems. The plant also installs and tests power supplies, fans, connectors and accessories. All electrical assembly work is conducted in accordance with UL / FM / ATEX standards. Our mechanical assembly operation capabilities include assembly of mechanical components, equipment, pumps and burner management systems.
All inspections, non-lab non-destructive testing, post-weld, RT and hydrostatic testing are performed on-site by our fully trained manufacturing team.
The Monterrey plant earned ISO 9001 certification in 2008 and has all widely recognized international certifications. These include certifications with ATEX, UL, and FM Global. All welders are AWS/ASME certified for WPS, PQR and WQR, and their work is inspected by an on-site certified welding inspector.
