Hardened Steel is a Base Element of Mining Industry Fabrication

Badger Sheet Metal Works marks 10 years in its modern facility. Mining industry fabrication is a specialized segment of material handling fabrication that requires expertise in extra-hard materials capable of withstanding extreme demands. Badger Sheet Metal Works is a mining industry fabrication supplier that has experience with a wide range of metals.

AR400 steel is the primary grade used in mining industry fabrication in Wisconsin. "Heat-treated to enhance hardness, AR400 alloys can last up to four times longer than conventional structural plate," said a Badger Sheet Metal Works spokesperson. "The abrasion-resistance properties of AR400 steel are ideal for applications in which high-impact wear is the norm."

"Mining, gravel production and other similar industries require steel fabrication products that can survive rugged operations," said Kenny Coe, Director of Sales at Badger Sheet Metal Works. "We select the appropriate grade of AR400 steel depending on the target application. These can range from material handling fabrication orders to dump body liners and conveyor systems."

Various grades of AR400 steel yield differing characteristics for welding, machining and grinding, bending and forming, wear resistance and corrosion resistance.

Badger Sheet Metal Works facility's large-scale capabilities were designed for handling heavy projects such as those in mining industry fabrication. The plant's 70'x 320' main assembly bay features four crane rails with a total lifting capacity of 30 tons and a 22' under-hook height.

A third-generation metal fabricator based in Green Bay, WI, Badger Sheet Metal Works also is celebrating its 95th anniversary in 2018, all under the leadership of the De Caster family.
