Minneapolis Drilling, Tapping, and Punching Metal Fabrication

Although it sounds like a simple process, it is important to understand that drilling and tapping metal components is a precise science that requires a great deal of attention to detail. Checkpoint Welding and Fabrication takes even the smallest detail very seriously. There are many factors that need to be considered when drilling metal during the fabrication process such as:

  • Type of Metal
  • Thickness of Metal
  • Intended use of the part
  • Required tolerance

To make the best part possible, these factors and many others must be considered. We make sure to inspect every part of the process, ensuring that what you receive works correctly with no modifications necessary.

Dedication To Even The Smallest Detail

The drilling and tapping of a hole is only one of the first stages in the production of the piece. Depending on the usage of the part, sharp edges may need ground down so that delicate wires or tubing isn’t damaged. Some holes may need to be counter sunk so that screws fit flush. The size of the holes being drilled is also imperative to the operation of the part being made. We make sure that every hole is drilled correctly in the correct location that you specify.

Ensuring Tolerances Are Met

The tolerances that you specify are of the utmost importance to us. We check to make sure that everything meets the specifications so that you can rest assured that your part will fit and function as you expect. We understand the frustration that comes when a part is made with holes that are too small or too large, and the danger that can potentially come from a hole that is drilled but not ground down or smoothed to prevent damage to wires or pipes. This is why so much emphasis is put on making sure everything we make is in spec and within the tolerance.

Hear From Our Clients

I had a very custom job that needed to be done on short notice. The job was for a healthcare provider so quality was also critical. Dean and the people at Checkpoint Welding were amazing. They exceeded my expectations and will use them exclusively moving forward.

I had a stainless steel vent hood crafted to my specifications including mirror polish on the welds. I had a long lead time  available so turnaround time was not an issue and is not a criteria for my rating. The product is perfect. There was good communication between me and the fab shop before fabrication started. The price was unbelievable (less than a quarter the price of the next closest bid).I couldn’t be more pleased with the final product and the price. I will definitely seek a bid from them on my next project.
