Who we are
Caspe: Production and design of heavy and light iron and steel metalwork in iron and steel for the civil, industrial and infrastructure sectors.
Metalwork: a definition
The term “metalwork” actually encompasses a very wide variety of different products. Metalwork is defined as all products obtained through cutting, deformation, welding and finishing of iron and steel sheets, pipes and profiles.
Some examples of metalworks are load-bearing support structures, which have high requirements for stability and safety. In the industrial field, the bases of heavy processing machines are also examples of metalwork; in the civil sector, light metalwork includese railings and grates, as well as all iron works; in the infrastructure sector, special formwork is yet another type of metal structural work
The advantages of metalwork
The widespread diffusion of metalwork in very different fields and sectors is essentially due to three typical characteristics of these structures.
First of all, metalwork structures can be entirely prefabricated at the manufacturing company, pre-assembled for testing, disassembled and transported on site, where they will be ultimately assembled and welded.This cuts down on waiting times, making construction much faster and minimizing mistakes.
Secondly, the use of steel and deformation and welding-based construction allow for the creation of unique shapes, made to measure and therefore infinitely modifiable to adapt to any specific design requirement.
Lastly, metal has unique mechanical characteristics, absolutely superior to any other material that can be used in the construction of sturdy and light load bearing structures. This allows for the building of metalwork that is capable of guaranteeing safety and stability even in particularly complex conditions.
What materials are used in the construction of metal structures
When we mention heavy and load-bearing metalwork, we usually refer to iron or steel constructions. By “Iron” we mean alloys with a very low content of other materials combined with iron; in addition to this, carbon “S” construction steels and stainless steels such as AISI304 and AISI-316 are normally used in the construction of metal structures.
Why choose Caspe to manufacture your metalwork
Caspe boasts three generations of professional history and experience in the field of metal structural work. The competence gained over many years of work is combined with constant attention to innovation (as evidenced by our high performance machinery (link 4) for steel processing) and scrupulous quality control, both through compliance with the regulations relating to our ISO certifications – 9001 and 1090-1 – and through the work of our quality office. Our internal technical office follows each production entirely, taking care of every phase and cooperating with customers right from the design stage.
