Bendalls facilitates multiple fabrication bays allowing controlled and segregated handling of carbon and stainless steel materials.

Our welders and procedures are approved to ASME IX and EN 15614/9606 standards and our welding processes include MMA, SAW, MIG, MAG, TIG, ESW and FCAW in a wide-range of materials which include, Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel, Monel, Duplex, Hastelloy, Titanium, Zirconium and Incoloys.

Our welding expertise includes automated welding, electro-slag strip cladding with a dedicated column, boom and manipulator capability for weld overlay of pressure vessel heads and bodies in 304/316/625, coupled with laser programmable profiling systems, rotators, overhead and mobile cranes.

Fabrication capabilities include grinding, folding, punching, nibbling, swaging, pressing, drilling, pipe bending, laser cutting and rolling up to 90mm thick (carbon) in 3m wide sections up to 8.5 diameter as well as cone rolling.

Located close to the UK home of Nuclear at Sellafield, we have developed close ties within this sector, delivering numerous landmark projects dating right back to the industries very earliest days at the beginning of the 1950’s.
