Manufacturing Industry: Metal Fabrication Services

The Australian manufacturing industry relies heavily on metal fabrication for its continued success. Manufacturing is a lynchpin in virtually every other vital industry, as the need for tools and equipment is universal. 

For effective manufacturing, prototyping and design is just as crucial to the end result as quality production. Metal fabrication workshops with strong design capabilities provide exceptional value, as well as benefits for lead time and quality control. 

Based in the Peel Region, WA, Kanyana Engineering provides a range of quality metal fabrication services and solutions for manufacturing. We specialise in:

  • End-to-end high-precision metal fabrication solutions 
  • Custom metal fabrication and design services
  • Components, partial projects or complete assemblies
  • Secondary processors and assembly projects
  • CAD to CAM – simulate assembly to cut out delays and reworks
  • Coded and certified welders for specific industries and projects

No job is too big or too small for Kanyana Engineering, providing world-class results with the communication and attention-to-detail you require. We can cut, bend, roll and join a wide variety of metals according to your specifications. If you are planning a small- or large-scale run of a product, we’re proud to offer the best lead times in the industry. 

There are countless benefits to on-shore metal fabrication services, meaning you won’t need to compromise and send your project off-shore. Working with an Australian metal fabrication company means you’ll avoid lengthy times and shipping delays. This rapid turnaround is especially valuable in the prototyping phase, allowing you to pick up and resolve issues prior to mass production. 

The expert team at Kanyana has worked with manufacturing clients for many years and understands the needs of the industry. With all of our design, prototyping, and fabrication services offered under one roof, we have the capacity to take care of your next manufacturing project.

The Importance of Metal Fabrication in the Manufacturing Industry

The endless possibilities of metal fabrication translates perfectly into the range of products needed in today’s world. Metal fabrication workshops create components for a variety of household products, including cars, electronics, medical devices and many more. 

But the demands of manufacturing go beyond the domestic field, as industrial sectors rely heavily on the output of manufacturing processes. Industries that benefit strongly from metal manufacturing include the mining industry, energy and resource sector, construction, agriculture and defence forces, among others. 

As long as the demand for specialised equipment exists, custom metal fabrication will be needed to meet it. Unique tools, equipment and attachments just can’t be created using mass production avenues, and in many cases require a lot of detailed design work to achieve the correct result. 

The team at Kanyana Engineering has extensive knowledge in both design and fabrication,  and can give you the expert advice needed to get your project off the ground. With our state-of-the-art equipment and specialised knowledge across a whole range of metal processes, we can deliver a high-quality product on time and within budget.

Benefits of Prototyping Services in the Manufacturing Industry

At Kanyana Engineering, we offer complete in-house design services for manufacturing projects using the latest CAD and CAM technology. Whether you need us to create a design from scratch or produce a prototype of your existing design, we have the capability to produce plans and models as required. 

You’ll work closely with our professional design staff to make key decisions on materials, processes and specifications. When it’s time to move from prototype to full production, our workshop is capable of scaling to meet your needs. 

Why is prototype design so important? 

Prototyping is a common step in manufacturing projects used to analyse the feasibility and design of a complete product. This process allows any design flaws or inaccuracies in the product to be smoothed out before a full run of the products is manufactured. At Kanyana, we aim to deliver a seamless, end-end manufacturing process for your project, from design to assembly.

The prototype phase is an incredible asset to metal fabrication projects in the manufacturing industry. This can include a single prototype production or rapid prototyping through to short runs, acting as proof of concept or with full assembly capabilities for product testing. 

Benefits of prototyping include:

  • Allowing for quality improvement 
  • Room for trial and error 
  • Minimises waste
  • Reduces end costs 
  • Improves product quality 
  • Allows immediate implementation of modifications 
  • Minimises communication errors 

At Kanyana Engineering, our expert team offers high-quality CAD and CAM services to develop your product prototype. We can build and manufacture practically any shape or design thanks to our in-house design and engineering expertise, as well as full NC automation.

When choosing a prototype and fabrication company in Australia, you’ll avoid lengthy lead times, allowing you to give swift feedback on prototypes. Compromising on this stage of the process and rushing into full production can be disastrous if the design has an unexpected flaw. With a local custom fabrication company, you’ll have the time to thoroughly test prototypes and avoid costly problems later down the line.

Kanyana Engineering can meet your computer-aided design and prototyping needs, including:

  • One-off prototyping, including prototype parts for testing with complete assembly capabilities
  • Prototype runs to your desired quantity

What Metals Are Used in the Manufacturing Industry?

The manufacturing industry relies on a variety of metals to create finished products. Some of the most common metals used for product manufacturing include steel, aluminium, brass, and copper. 

Steel is a durable and versatile metal that is often used in the manufacturing industry. It is strong enough to withstand a lot of wear and tear, making it ideal for products that will be used outdoors or in environments with a lot of abuse.

Aluminium is another popular metal used in manufacturing, as it is lightweight and corrosion-resistant. This makes it a good choice for products that need to be durable but also easy to transport.

Brass is a strong and malleable metal that is often used in fixtures and fittings. It is also corrosion-resistant, making it a good choice for use in harsh environments. 

Copper is a soft metal that is used in many electrical applications.

At Kanyana Engineering, we can work effectively with a full range of metals, giving you maximum versatility when it comes to product design. Our high quality fabricating and prototyping services provide a wealth of options to achieve the results you need.

Our Projects: Refuge Chambers

Kanyana Engineering has played a key role in the manufacturing of RefugeMe Chambers. In conjunction with Murray Engineering, the Kanyana team has crafted the complete set of parts for this vital safety equipment. 

A refuge chamber is a key piece of safety equipment used in underground mining. These chambers act as a shelter for miners to be used in hazardous or emergency situations. They are designed and equipped with gas monitoring, network connectivity, CCTV surveillance, two-way video communication, and air scrubbing systems. 

Kanyana Engineering completes the full fabrication process for the refuge chamber, while fit-out and installation is carried out by Murray Engineering in line with Australian mining requirements. 

The team at Kanyana Engineering has collaborated with mining industry clients for many years, and understands how important safety is to mining sites. For that reason, we were well equipped to deliver this manufacturing project to the very precise specifications necessary.
