Kirin Manufacturing specializes in custom metal fabrication in Tucson, Arizona.  Custom metal fabrication allows our customers to achieve their desired results for projects that they may not have the tools to build on their own.

Shearing, a form of metal cutting, is typically the first step in the metal fabrication process. Mechanized shears are used to cut standard-sized sheets of material to match the job specifications. Kirin Manufacturing operates several shears that can handle up to a 10′ material width. These machines are also capable of cleanly cutting a maximum thickness of 1/4″ carbon and 3/16″ stainless steel.

Major Equipment:

  • 1 Amanda M3060

Punching is a metal forming process used in metal fabrication. By making use of both state-of-the-art and more traditional punching methods, Kirin Manufacturing is able to quickly and cleanly create or modify various materials to customer specifications. Our CNC controlled laser/punch allows us to cut and/or punch nearly any shape or size into the desired material. Our more traditional punch presses make use of die sets that can punch out holes of various standard sizes and shapes. Generally speaking, the material being manipulated cannot exceed 60″ in width, and a maximum thickness of 3/8″ for either method.

Major Equipment:

  • 1 Amada Coma PEGA 357 Turret Punch Press
  • 1 Amada Apelio 357 Turret Punch/Laser

Metal fabrication can require metal to take on many shapes. Kirin Manufacturing employs hydraulic presses to form bends or angles in various materials. Dies are used to ensure that the metal takes a specific and uniform shape, time after time. Our machinery typically can handle materials of up to 10 gauge to 3/16″ thickness, and eight foot widths. Maximum material thickness depends on the overall size of the material and complexity of the bends or angles.

  • 2 Amada RG-80 Press Brake

Kirin Manufacturing has numerous options for practically all of your welding and metal fabrication needs. From simple to complex jobs, Kirin has a welding solution. We employ the use of both TIG and MIG welding, depending on the specifications of the particular job and type of materials utilized. Tungsten Inert Gas welding, better known as TIG welding, can be used in joining thinner sheets of stainless steel, as well as other non-ferrous materials such as aluminum and copper. MIG welding, or Metal Inert Gas welding, is commonly used on heavier-gauge steels.
