FRONTLINE IS CAPABLE TO FOLD SOME OF THE HEAVIEST PLATE IN QLD, WITH OUR MASSIVE 1500 TONNE HIGHLY ACCURATE BRAKE PRESS.
We also have the large format cutting capability, heavy overhead cranes, a welding system certified to ISO3834.2 and the experience to handle the heaviest of jobs.
CNC MACHINING & TURNING
Full component machining service in all types of materials and batch sizes. Our focus on quality, cost and delivery make us a worthwhile consideration for supplying your business.
Frontline currently runs three state of the art Panasonic Robotic Welding cells, two for repetitive component welding with the third running on a 5 meter linear rail for larger, more labour intensive products
LASER & PLASMA CUTTING
We can cut a range of sizes and have saved our customers thousands of machining dollars using our fast laser and plasma cutting capability.
Pressed components have been our specialty since 1996, during which time we have developed one of the widest ranges of products in Queensland.
Heavy Folding and Metal Fabrication Services
Frontline’s growth has followed the path from light fabrication into truly heavy structures and assemblies. The culmination of this strategy was the commissioning of a 1500 tonne, 6.1m brake press with highly accurate camera angle correction. We’ve folded hulls for infantry tanks and the plates for major undergrounding mining equipment. And we can back that up with a team of experienced boilermakers lead by IIW qualified IWE and IWS.
At Frontline we work at PACE.
We are Proud, Accountable, Continuously improving, for Each other
We take pride in what we do, we do what we say we will, we are always looking for a better way, and we have true respect and care for each other.
Our Manufacturing Services include
We operate 3 laser cutters, from the highly accurate and excellent edge quality of our 1.5x3m Amadas, to our super large format 3mx6m Panasonic.
PRESSED COMPONENTS TO HEAVY FOLDING
Pressed components have been our specialty since 1996, and we have expanded our capability by adding 3 brake presses, the largest 1500 tonne with camera-guided angle correction
From complex multi axis milling to low cost repetitive bar-fed turning, machining is how we started and remains our passion.
We are certified to some of the highest standards in our industry, including ISO383.2 and DIN2303 Q2. We fabricate from precise sheet metal for aerospace to heavy underground mining equipment and everything in between, from manual to robotic.
Frontline Manufacturing has invested heavily so we can provide the best heavy fabrication solutions. We are the professional provider of metal work services in Brisbane, with the ability to cover the full gamut of sheet metal work through to heavy fabrication.
We can offer this wide range of capability because of the both the skillset of our staff and the plant and equipment we possess. For example, our ability to provide heavy fabrication services is a function of our skills in boilermaking – Cert III Engineering qualified welders who can weld heavy plate to AS 1554 and under our welding management system accredited to ISO 3834.2. The plate we weld is cut on our large format laser cutting machines and our water jet cutting machine, the latter able to cut over 100mm thick material.
Our truly unique capability is our highly accurate heavy brake press, combined with a wide range of heavy press brake tooling. Our Deratech 1500 brake press has a highly accurate sensing camera which automates angle correction, which is particularly useful for high tensile material such as wear plate, armour plate and brands such as Strenex and Bis80.
We are unique as a metal folding company in Brisbane by virtue of our certification under TL 2350, a standard for heavy folding armour accredited by the German Army.
Yes – it is not merely a powerful press brake machine we possess, but decades of combined experience to ensure we fold your parts in the safest, most effective, and most efficient manner.
We are require your drawings and ideally a DXF file. We will calculate the time to set up and fold your project and provide you a competitive quote in a timely manner. We have team of dedicated estimators and engineers ready to help/assist you in your heavy fabrication project.
We have a documented inspection process, firstly pursuant to ISO 9001, our Quality Management System. Further, we can develop specific inspection processes for your project, along the lines of our system developed and certified under TL 2350 for bending armour plate.
