The importance of experience in stainless steel fabrication for food machinery There’s an awful lot that goes in to producing high quality fabrications for the food processing industry. Whether it is investing in the latest machinery which gives highly accurate results during cutting, drilling, forming and bending, or capitalising on decades of experience and knowledge to make the fabrication work for your customer, each part is equally as important as the next.
When it comes to quality food grade stainless steel fabrications, however, it is vital that everything is made following strict quality control practices to ensure that they are completed with a hygienic and sanitary finish. This is where experience counts. From choosing the right welding method to avoid contamination or producing a finished fabrication that’s free from lines, grooves and pits takes not only skill, but many years’ experience. At C H Barnett, we carry out the entire fabrication process at our facilities under strict quality control procedures.
This provides total traceability from start to finish, ensuring that our customers’ products have been produced following the necessary controls and procedures demanded when producing fabrications for the food industry. Assembly is carried out in a dedicated clean area to reduce the risk of product contamination. In addition, the use of both MIG and TIG welding methods also means that we are able to protect the weld from contamination. Stainless steel is commonly used for machinery and contact parts used within food preparation as it offers a clean and sanitary finish, as well as providing safeguards against corrosion from the food itself and any chemicals used to clean it.
In choosing a company with many years’ experience in providing custom-made, quality food-grade steel fabrications, you will be able to use that skill and knowledge to help you improve your existing product or create a new product that meets your exact needs.
No longer will you have to ‘make do’ with a standard piece of machinery, working with a company that really knows what they are doing will ensure that you get the right piece of equipment for your processes.
