Mission-Critical Power Systems Provide Ultimate Test For Fabrication

Building key components for electric power systems – including frames, tanks, skids and enclosures for gensets and power transformers – requires a single-source supplier that brings specific types of metalworking experience.

Schaffer Manufacturing can help power generation OEMs optimize supply chain delivery, quality and cost across multiple component categories.

  •  Fabricating liquid-filled tanks for power transformer applications uses the Schaffer manufacturing background in large welded constructions ranging from watertight dredge hulls to heavy-duty dump boxes used for harvesting.
  • Vertically integrated, single-source sheet metal fabrication – from engineering through powder coating and assembly – enables Schaffer to optimize enclosures. Deep experience devising metal forming solutions that minimize the number of pieces in a fabrication enables Schaffer to reduce welding and assembly costs.
  • Schaffer turnaround can be up to 40% faster than the 10-week lead times typical for large, heavy fabrication projects. Experience meeting short lead times in the mining industry has streamlined Schaffer processes for moving projects from order intake out to the production floor.
