A customer in the salt water fishing industry needed a custom cabinet for the housing of fishing rods and other equipment. Industrial Alloys, Inc. was contracted to do all of the required work, which included the manufacturing, assembly, and finishing of the lockable cabinet as highlighted below. A combination of advanced equipment and processes including forming, shearing, punching, and certified welding were performed in order to manipulate 5052 aluminum sheet and 6061 aluminum tube materials to the exacting profiles called for in the supplied CAD drawings. The tightest tolerances of ± 0.0625” were held throughout fabrication.

The unit was subjected to a powder coating treatment for an abrasion and impact resistant finish, and tested for accuracy and quality with a 100% dimensional inspection. Overall measurements of the finished cabinet were 48” in length, 60” in width, and 96” in height. One unit was produced after a turnaround time of 2 weeks and shipped to the customer in Holden Beach, North Carolina.
