Heavy Fabrication

We have extensive applied and proven experience in the fabrication of heavy structures that require stringent joining techniques, and equally stringent conformance checking.  Our on-site capability in these areas enable our customers to have a 'one-stop shop' approach.

Aluminium & Stainless Steel Welding

All of our welding team hold national approvals and are flexibly skilled to work between MIG, TIG and steel and aluminium materials.  We have over 300 supplied projects in our portfolio and work within a 5-metre cube envelope for fabrication.

Proof Loading

This is a process that has been developed on-site to support the conformance checking of the completed part to ensure it meets safe working loading specifications defined by the customer.  We are able to simulate the point loading UDL (Uniform Distribution Load) and have Proof Loading capability up to 30 tonnes.

NDT (Non-Destructive Testing)

At all stages of the fabrication process we are able to undertake localised NDT inspection against each weld.  This dedicated capability has recently expanded to match our customers' demands to take on larger and more complex structures.  The overall envelope is now 6.5 metres by 3 metres.  In support of the capability we have PCN Level 2 qualified inspectors.

FARO Inspection Arm

In conjunction with the non-destructive testing, we also ensure conformance to geometry and specified machine surface tolerances.  For this process we use a mobile inspection facility, the FARO Gold Arm.  This enables our inspection team to work around large structures and has the ability to check to a tolerance of 0,04mm.

Repair & Overhaul

Chinn Engineering offer a lifetime service as part of any project agreement.  This enables on-site customer servicing and recalibration as well as on-site repair and overhaul should this be required.  This has proved invaluable to the Airbus Defence and Space and Roxel Rocket Motors UK.
