Stryker Welding-Logo

Serving the Tri-State Area

Stryker Welding was tasked with fabricating a machine base frame for a customer in the injection molding industry. Using a variety of tools and processes, we fabricated the machine base using W21 wide-flange beams and flat steel.


The frame weighed approximately 16,000 pounds and cost $38,000. We used the prints provided by the customer throughout the fabrication process to ensure everything met the exact specifications.
