Baker Industries Fabrication Showcase

Fabrication and Build is where our large projects take shape. From raw material, we bend, shape, form, weld, fabricate, assemble and inspect large-scale tooling and fixtures.

Baker Industries has a 55,000 sq. ft. facility dedicated to our fabrication operations. This plant has a bay height of 28’ and a max hook height of 22’6” allowing massive structures to be fabricated in a climate controlled environment. Throughout Plant 2 we have start to finish tool processing that includes high quality GMAW (gas metal arc welding) and GTAW (gas tungsten arc welding). All projects are examined by one of our Certified Welding Inspectors before heading to our assembly and build department.

Growing Closer: Machine Shops and 3D Printing for Production

Machining a large 3D-printed part for aerospace composite tooling is fundamentally different than manufacturing the part traditionally. Baker Industries knows this first-hand.

I’ve audited shops all across the U.S., and I would consider Baker to be one of the top 4 shops in the country. It is very rare for a company to pass our fabrication audit on the first try, so I was highly impressed when Baker not only passed but exceeded our expectations. Their team is well organized and their fab job traveler is one of the best I’ve seen.”

Aerospace OEM Customer

In my 27 plus years of being associated with Tooling Work Transfer, this tool is one of the nicest Core Form and Trim tools we have ever received from a supplier. The face sheet forming, welding, machining, benching, and ID look great. You also delivered the tool ahead of schedule.
