Since 1992, Marco Specialty Steel has been supplying high-quality metal products to companies in a wide and diverse assortment of industries, including oil refining, offshore drilling, heavy-equipment manufacturing, aerospace, wind power, food and beverage, chemical, pharmaceuticals and many others. You’ll find an extensive selection of bar grating, perforated metal, expanded metal, wire cloth and architectural products for virtually any manufacturing application, all of which are supported by a comprehensive menu of turnkey service offerings. In addition, we’re a leading provider of high-quality fiberglass grating fabrication services.
While our large inventory of stock metal and steel products can meet the requirements of many of our customers, we also understand that certain unique applications may require a more specialized solution. That’s why we provide custom metal cutting services for any of our in-stock products. We have the knowledge, skill and machinery needed to develop the right product for your application, regardless of how complex the job may be.
We Perform Custom Metal Fabrication at Our Texas Facility
Our 35,000-square-foot Houston facility includes a modern fabrication shop equipped with saws, shears, rollers and other advanced machinery. With our in-house fabrication shop, we offer production sawing of bar grating panels, Grip-Strut® safety grating, Perf-O Grip® safety grating and Traction-Tread® safety-grating panels. We can also shear perforated metal, expanded metal sheet and plate. Our cutting capabilities include cut pieces and special custom-cut metal shapes, such as segmented circles, cutouts and notches.
Examples of our custom cutting techniques include:
- Metal shearing: Entails the application of perpendicular cutting force that causes the metal to yield and break.
- Plasma cutting: Uses an accelerated jet of hot plasma to cut through electrically conductive metal materials.
- Flame cutting: Typically used for cutting mild steel, flame cutting features oxygen as a cutting gas to burn and oxidize the material.
- Laser cutting: Uses pulsed laser technology to produce finished metal parts featuring exceptional edge quality.
- Water jet cutting: Uses jets of pressurized water (sometimes mixed with an abrasive material) to cut metal cleanly to close tolerances.
We’ll Ensure a Successful Custom Metal Fabrication Project Outcome
Our custom metal cutting services begin long before the actual sawing or shearing occurs. We encourage our customers to submit their mechanical drawings or blueprints to our experienced technical staff. We’ll review your drawings and let you know if we have any questions or need additional information, and make any recommendations regarding design modifications if needed. Our goal is to ensure your finished product meets your applications and specific project requirements.
