Diverse Equipment Capabilities

A & P Fabricating Solutions, LLC has the equipment capabilities you need to complete your project on time and on budget. Count on us for all your custom fabrication needs.

Our plate rolling machine rolls different kinds of metal sheets into a round or conical shape. It's also sometimes called a "roll bending machine", "plate bending machine", or simply "rolling machine".

Plate rolling

Bending is the manufacturing process that produces a v-shape, u-shape, or channel shape along a straight axis in ductile materials. Sheet metal is most commonly used. Equipment used includes box and pan brakes, brake presses, and other specialized machine presses. Typical products created by this process include boxes for electrical enclosures and rectangular ductwork.

Plasma cutting is used to cut steel and other metals or materials of different thicknesses using a plasma torch. For this process, a gas such as oxygen, air, or an inert gas is blown from a nozzle at high speed. Other gases may be used, depending on the material being cut.


At the same time, an electrical arc is formed through the gas from the nozzle to the surface being cut, which turns some of that gas to plasma. The plasma is hot enough to melt the material being cut and moves quickly enough to blow molten metal away from the cut.

Laser cutting:

Amada 2000 watt laser


Laser cutting works by directing the output of a high-power laser most commonly through optics. The laser optics and CNC (computer numerical control) are used to direct the material or the laser beam generated. A typical commercial laser for cutting materials involved a motion control system to follow a CNC or G-code of the pattern to be cut onto the material. The focused laser beam is directed at the material, which then either melts, burns, vaporizes away, or is blown away by a jet of gas.
