The production process begins with a state-of-the-art Messer HPR260XD Plasma cutting system.
This machine runs up and down 100 feet of track over our 80 foot long Veriform downdraft table. It runs fast and makes incredibly accurate cuts and precise holes and slots.
Besides cutting plate, our ProNest software - with Hypertherm's "True Hole" technology - allows for optimum nesting, etching and top quality cuts every time.
Scribing is another great feature of this machine as cutouts for shapes or holes can be etched in the plate to save layout time later in the fabrication process.
We had been using another supplier for our rolling, but when we needed improved turn around time, they couldn't deliver, so we looked around and settled on Double R after exploring a few others. I think their quality is pretty good and more importantly, it's ready on time.
“In order of importance its Quality, Delivery and Price. Just behind that – if something is wrong – how quickly can we get a replacement part? Yes, we have a plate supplier nearby who does roll small bands for us, however, it’s a struggle to get them round on the bigger bands – Double R Steel does it right and if there is a problem they fix it fast.”
Pretty much everything they have done for us, they've done very well. There are very few companies that Cantec is comfortable with subcontracting work to and Double R is certainly one of them.
You have an excellent staff at Double R. We like dealing with you and have recommended you to others who need top quality rolling done.
Not the lowest price, but excellent quality and excellent service.
Double R does our yokes and nobody else can do them and they do a very good job of it.
