Agricultural Equipment Innovations
Fraser Steel draws upon its extensive experience in two related industries – lawn and garden equipment, and automotive – to help agricultural equipment manufacturers improve products or streamline production. It consistently delivers high-quality solutions at less cost, and in less time, than traditional ag industry providers. Fraser’s advantage comes from its ability to consolidate numerous fabrication steps into one continuous, precise process. It also shortens cycle times by sequencing multiple processes in-house – including laser tube cutting, custom tube bending, and machining.
Broad Agriculture Machinery Applications
Fraser Steel designs, engineers and fabricates a wide variety of tubular parts, components and assemblies for the domestic agricultural market. Its products are used in tractors, harvesters, combines, planting equipment, implements and other heavy farm machinery.
Fraser Steel delivers complete engineered solutions in the production of:
- Roll Over Protection Structures (ROPS)
- Roll cages and roll bars
- Cab enclosures
- Chassis and frames
- Suspension assemblies
- Bushing and spacers
Fraser-produced ROPS routinely pass the government-mandated Charpy impact test, a critical gauge of product safely. This standardized, high strain-rate test determines the amount of energy absorbed by a material during fracture. The absorbed energy is a measure of the material’s toughness and resiliency.
