Custom Manufacturing of Carbon Steel Mounting Bracket for the Railroad Industry

Mechanical Designs of Virginia was recently contracted by a railroad industry client to custom manufacture a mounting bracket that would be used within a transportation application. Based off of a customer supplied print, we laser cut, bend, machine and weld the brackets.

Constructed from durable carbon steel, we employed our CNC milling technology to skim cut any excess material, drill all holes, and tap all threads. After all mount bracket components were fully manufactured and welded together, we then deburred the finished bracket, creating a smooth finish, and paint the part using quick dry steel primer.

To ensure that this high-quality part met with precise customer requirements for design and functionality, Mechanical Designs of VA performed a series of product inspections using thread gauges, dial calipers, a height indicator gauge, and feeler gauges. Only after we were fully assured that we fulfilled all of our client’s exact specifications did we deliver this product to our customer.
