Mechanical Fabrication

Shambaugh welder working on a custom fabrication projectOur in-house approach. Your direct benefits. A distinct advantage of the Shambaugh team is our in-house planning department and fabrication facilities.

Delivery of critical drawings and materials is simplified significantly to streamline your project schedule.

The productivity, activity, actual cost per hour, and schedule savings of prefab have been proven on past projects. Example: roughly 40-50% of all piping and equipment systems can be fabricated!

Automated State of the Art Fabrication

Our fabrication shop is a 146,000-square-foot automated facility. We have:

  • 3 10-ton overhead cranes
  • 48 Jib Cranes with hoist
  • 16 carbon semi-automatic manual welding stations with Lincoln 350 Pro-Inverter MIG-TIG-STICK machines
  • 10 stainless steel manual stations with Lincoln 275 TIG machines
  • 5 orbital stations with ARC 205 machines

We offer plasma-cutting capabilities, automatic end prep, X-ray and NDE testing, sandblasting, painting, metal forming, and Victaulic pipe fabrication. We even have 40+ workstations for both carbon-steel and stainless-steel welding.

Special Fabrication Equipment:

  • Band saws with capacity through 24" pipe
  • 200 amp Miller Econotwin heliarc welders
  • George Fisher cutoff saws
  • Pipe beveling machines through 36" pipe
  • Victaulic grooving equipment through 30" pipe
  • 85-ton Scottsman ironworker
  • Sandblasting and painting facilities
  • Pneumatic power hand tools
  • Chop saws and cold cut saws
  • Pipe facing and counter boring equipment
  • Plasma cutting table and portable plasma cutters
  • Weld positioners and automatic pipe rollers

Mechanical Fabrication Capabilities

  • Ability to weld stainless-steel and carbon-steel piping, plumbing, supports, and platforms along with duplex stainless steel, chrome molly, and Hastelloy piping
  • Custom stairs and work platforms, built to fit your space and meet regulatory requirements for Food Processing and Industrial applications.  Stairs are constructed of stainless steel or carbon (painted or galvanized), and delivered to the jobsite.
  • Plumbing system components including sinks, toilets and urinals are prefabricated as soon as submittals are approved and held within our 146,000 sf fabrication facility waiting for distribution to the jobsite "just-in-time" for installation so as not to unnecessarily clutter the jobsite.
  • From Shop to Truck – Always Shambaugh Fabrication Shops and Shambaugh Trucks!
  • Capability to design and construct modular, skid-mounted equipment packages
  • Advanced parametric design software - "Revit Auto Plant" utilized to reduce engineering hours

Food Processing Fabrication

  • Unitized and pre-tested complete hygienic systems are 3D modeled and constructed to fit our customers’ new or existing space.  The required technology is delivered to your facility and installed – designed to meet regulatory requirements for food, nutraceutical, and beverage products.
  • Retrofit and replacement services for process system components with minimum downtime.
  • Design and build complete facility support, automation, and refrigeration systems for new, expanded, or renovated facilities.
  • Each system is designed by our experienced, in-house food processing and utility engineers.  
  • All systems are constructed in our shop, installed, and mobilized by our labor staff and experienced commissioning technicians.
