Custom Fabricated Metal Cones


Eldred Sheet Metal Works, LLC, fabricates custom metal cones made from carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum, and alloys in material thicknesses from 16 Ga. (.0625") up to 2" thick.  Metal Cones are used by various industries as transitions, pipe increasers/ reducers, rain caps, hoppers, tank ends, funnels, guides and forms.  Cones can be fabricated with specified small and large diameters, lengths, and material thicknesses.  Eldred offers turnkey fabrication or labor only when customers provide their own material or gores to be fabricated.


Large Eccentric Cone & Matching Cylinder

There are three types of cone frustums; Eccentric, Concentric, and Oblique.  An Eccentric cone is a cone whose side is perpendicular to the base of the cone.  A Concentric cone is a cone in which the axis is perpendicular to the base of the cone and an Oblique cone is a cone whose axis is not parallel to the base of the cone.  Eldred has software to layout all three types of cone frustums.  The dimensions required for laying out a cone must include the large diameter, the small diameter, the vertical height or length, and the thickness of the material. 

A cone frustum is created by cutting off the point of a cone with a line parallel to the base.  Eldred fabricates cones from flat layouts by forming the metal to the proper dimensions, usually from as little as two pieces. The process starts with the drawing of the frustum.  Eldred uses the latest technology for producing the flat layouts of the cone frustum.  Next, the flat layout is programmed into a cad layout and then processed by a plasma cutting/ flame cutting machine. Once processed, the flat layout is formed to the desired dimensions and welded to the customer’s specifications to create the desired cone frustum.  Additional services such as beveling, punching, notching, machining, sawing, or welding may also be performed on the fabricated cone frustums.
