Sheet Metal Fabrication of Steel Coupling Guard for the Pump and Fluid Handling Industry
By combining our advanced laser cutting, press brake, and TIG welding technology, Manufacturing Designs of VA was able to successfully fabricate two coupling guards used within a pump/fluid handling system, while meeting a ±.010 of an inch precision tolerance. We first laser cut all components to shape from 14 gauge HRP&O steel sheet metal. We additionally cut logos into this sheet metal. We then TIG welded all components together and provided two 90° bends at the base of each unit for product stability.

Once the units were successfully built to print, we then deburred the coupling guards until they possessed a smooth, 1.5 millimeter finish. We finally applied a safety yellow powder coating to each product. Once completed, the coupling guards measured precisely 6.5 inches long and high, and 4 inches wide. The parts additionally weighed 2.32 pounds.

Manufacturing Designs of VA performed a variety of in-process inspections in order to ensure the high-quality of our products. First, we checked all measurements in flats. We then inspected the first bent unit and the first welded unit of each coupling guard. We also completed a final, comprehensive examination of the products before shipping the finished units to our buyer's facility. Fulfilling all customer product requirements, the coupling guards met with high client satisfaction.
