Fabricated Metal Tees

Call Eldred Sheet Metal for custom fabricated metal tees in any size. Custom metal tees can be fabricated by to your specifications, pending Eldred weld shop approval, within our shop capabilities. Eldred uses the latest software to design and lay out flat patterns.  The flat patterns are then nested and plasma cut using our CNC Plasma Cutting Machine. Once cut, the patterns are then preformed and rolled just like the cylinders.  Great care will be taken to insure that the finished product is within +/- 1/8 inch of the desired diameter.

We can create custom pipe tees from carbon steel, stainless steel, galvanized steel, aluminum, and various alloys.  The metal cylinder fabrication process starts by determining the flat layout or stretch out of the piece to be rolled.  Then Eldred preforms the ends of the material to the desired radius. Eldred will preform on the press brake the minimum length required based upon the thickness of the material and the equipment used to roll the sheet or plate. The preforming step prevents “flat spots” which results in a more uniform and accurate finished product. The material is then rolled on the plate roll to the desired diameter. Eldred uses a radius guage to check and verify the correct diameter. Once the material is rolled to the correct diameter, it will be tack welded. Eldred can tack weld or weld complete to your specification pending Eldred weld shop approval within our shop capabilities.

Eldred uses the latest software to develop flat layout and bend patterns for custom metal tees.  Once the flat pattern layout and corresponding file is developed, parts are nested using the latest nesting software.  By nesting parts Eldred is available to minimize waste and increase productivity.  Nested parts are then cut using a High-Definition CNC Plasma cutter.  Parts up to 120" X 240" can be cut.  Once cut our skilled professionals can form or roll the parts to meet the specified dimensions.  Items can be tack welded or fully welded.  Eldred weld shop is certified in AWS D1.1 Section IX with DNV-GL offshore Standard DNV-OS-E201(Oil and Gas Processing Systems)as well as NACE MR0175/ISO 15156-X. All other weld procedures to be considered for approval by Eldred Weld shop foreman.

Thicker material sometimes requires a beveled long seam for welding purposes.  Please specify if your project requires welding prep.  Eldred can bevel to your specifications. 

*Material thickness determines the length and diameter that can be rolled. Eldred utilizes five different sheet and plate rolls to fabricate your rolled parts.
