Laser Cutting, Sandblasting, Galvanising and Powder Coating Services.

Laser cutting technology is much faster and more cost effective than any other process currently available. MetalWork WA guarantee prompt project turn around and delivery – so why choose laser cutting for your architectural steelwork?


• Accurate, repeatable cutting

• Cut edges are clean with fair curves

• Heat distortion minimal

• No initial or ongoing tooling costs

• No secondary process costs

• Ideal for fast prototyping, from CAD drawings


What is Sandblasting / Abrasive Blasting?

Sandblasting or bead blasting is the process of smoothing, shaping and cleaning a hard surface by forcing solid particles across the surface at high speeds; the effect is similar to that of using sandpaper, but provides a more even and clean finish with no problems at corners or crannies leaving the metal ready for painting.


We can provide specialised blast & paint facilities to provide paint removal, preparation and specialised coatings application to metal components.


What is Powder Coating?

Powder coating is a dry finishing process. Finely ground particles of pigment and resin are electrostatically charged and sprayed onto the products to be coated. The parts to be coated are electrically grounded, so that the charged particles adhere to them until melted and fused into a solid coating in a curing oven.


It looks like paint but it acts like armour, it’s tough and it looks great. Powder coating is a superior finish that’s found on hundreds of products you come in contact with each day.



Hot Dipped Galvanising (HDG)

The use of metallic zinc coatings to protect iron or steel surfaces is well established, with common coating techniques including metal spraying, electroplating, painting and hot-dip galvanising. Of these approaches, none can surpass the protection offered by hot-dip galvanising. 


Hot-dip Galvanising, in particular, ensures the highest level of protection: The zinc coating is thicker than with other methods and the molten zinc bonds to the product surface to achieve the most complete coverage of potential corrosion spots such as corners, edges, seams, rivets and recesses.


The result – a reliable and robust finish which delivers cost savings at the point of manufacture, high resistance of damage during transport and installation, and long-term economies through reduced maintenance costs and an extended product life.
