MANUFACTURE PROCESS OF STEEL PALISADE FENCES
STEEL PALISADE FENCESWe operate the most advanced manufacturing facility in South Africa for Palisade Fences. Our fences are fully manufactured by robotics.
The production of a Steel Palisade Fence takes place in 3 steps:
 
1. Cutting of hot rolled angle iron lengths into 2- or 3-spike Pales
2. Cleaning of Pales
3. Welding of pales onto cross bars

1. CUTTING

For cutting a robot equipped with a plasma cutter gun is used.
The advantage to use robotics for cutting is:
a.) The spikes of the pales are extremely sharp (be careful when handling our panels!)
b.) It allows the flexibility to manufacture a variety of shapes:
While the most pale manufacturers use a press equipped with a custom made, expensive tool to press the crowns out of the steel, here the robot is simply re-programmed to cut out any required shape of spikes. This is, why we can manufacture RAZOR pales. & EXTRA-RAZOR pales.
c.) The tips of the spikes heated in the process, and are therefor extra hard.

At present capacity production reaches up to 90 km of cut to size angles per month. With our new production line, we will increase our cut to size angles per month up to 280 km!

2. CLEANING

The pales are cleaned in a big drum, to remove dirt and burs. This creates an ideal surface for long lasting primer & paint on your palisade fences.

3. WELDING:

Whilst the one robot is busy cutting, the other robot simultaneously welds the pales onto the cross bars, to manufacture panels.
The advantages for using a welding robot is:
a.) Time (capable of doing up to 4800 units [3x2m panel] per month)
b.) Every welding has the same finish (no human mistakes)
c.) The finished panels are square and straight, and each panel is exactly similar in measurement to the others.
