Catwalks and platforms are manufactured with steel grating and steel sheet stock — fabricated with custom anti-skid dimple patterns for large earth moving equipment.
Manufacturing large catwalks, platforms, grating and stairs is a good portion of Cannon’s business. We have built platforms up to 8 feet long by 16 feet wide, and use punch presses to create a wide variety of dimple patterns in the parts. Most of the steel in these components is ¼ inch steel which is laser cut using CNC lasers, and are fabricated through our welding area to add 15–30 components.
Cannon builds some grating in-house and supplies grating from ⅛ inch up to ¼ inch wide, and depths from ¾ to 3 inch deep.
- Applications experience in supplying components for heavy industrial equipment, automotive and engine components
- These components utilize our combined expertise with punch presses, laser cutting and welding.
- A key in-house capability is our automated powder coating line with washer.
