Intercon offers a full range of heavy fabrication services. Welding expertise extends from mild steels to alloys, stainless steels, and structural materials. Procedures and personnel meet various welding codes, including AWS, ASME and MIL-STD-248/278 specifications.
Shape cutting is accomplished with CNC multiple head burning machines capable of burning 40 ft. plates up to 15 in. thick. Plasma cutting attachments handle aluminum and stainless steels. Forming equipment includes press brakes, pinch rolls, shears, and hydraulic presses up to 600-ton capacity.
Welding methods include automatic and semi-automatic MIG, TIG, Submerged Arc, Pulsed Arc, and a 4200 amp Electro-Slag System. Four D.C. sub-arc stations, using 30 ft. aerial manipulators, provide unique cladding and circumferential weld capability. Heavy positioners, turning rolls, and customer fixturing permit in-position welding of massive fabrications.
Weld inspection is performed by Intercon's quality control personnel in conformance with industry and customer criteria. Non-destructive inspection includes magnetic particle, ultrasonic, and dye penetrant methods. Radiographic inspection is also available.
On-site thermal stress relieving of large fabrications is provided by three furnaces, each instrumented and controlled for exact heating cycles. A recently installed car bottom furnace can accommodate fabrications 44 ft. long, 16 ft. wide, and 18 ft. high.
On site blasting facilities prepare weldments for priming and painting. Intercon's rail entry painting facilities are equipped for a wide range of commercial, marine, and military paint systems.
Characterized by some of the largest machine tools in private industry. Intercon's machine shops are equipped to handle precision machining of various steels and alloys up to 625BHN. Size is no restriction. A bank of horizontal boring mills provide travel and control features for the most demanding jobs. Single set-up work, including 60 ft by 20 ft travel envelopes, is routine. Late model CNC boring and milling machines are among the largest available from any job shop in the country. Crane capacity exceeds 200,000 lbs.
Vertical boring mills range in swing capacity from 48 in. to 20 ft. Work pieces weighing up to 100,000 lbs can be accommodated.
A full range of lathes, machining centers, table mills, radial drills, and shapers compliment Intercon's diverse machine tool inventory.
Computerized numerically controlled machines are programmed with in-house disc preparation systems. Plotters verify tool paths, and simulate set-ups, tooling, and methods. CNC formats from customer production control can be converted, or downloaded directly to Intercon's machine controllers.
