Peninsula Iron Works' does more than machining...

Our team of fabricators are some of the best around. Our strength comes from the diversity of work that we perform. From your basic mild steel to the more exotic items such as titanium and super duplex we can help. Do you have a unique or difficult fabrication project you are looking for partner on?

Think Outside the Box

Do you remember the brain teaser picto-puzzles that were printed on the inside of beer bottle caps?  I have fond memories of collecting the caps from my grandfathers 'BeerBeer' bottles and then we would sit on the floor and try to decode the puzzles.  

Life is one big puzzle and if you solve problems for a living you get used to 'thinking outside the box'.  The manufacturer of these tool extensions doesn't recommend you do this.  The machine tool maker never envisioned anyone would try it.  The customer had no idea how this could be done.  With a little creativity, a lot of patience and years of experience you find that most everything is possible.  We had to run this slowly and couldn't take much material but there weren't a lot of options to create the radii needed that close to a vertical wall.  Horizontal was not an option since the demand was for a crisp step at the edge of this surface.  

If you have a project with unusual demands and challenges that have you stumped then give us a call!  You would be amazed at what we can come up with to solve your problem.  At the end of the day we aren't fabricators or welders or machinists or mechanics, we are problem solvers! Just like when we were kids and we sat around on the floor at grandma and grandpa's house solving puzzles on beer caps, we sit or stand at desks now and solve problems for our customers all day long!  Send us your puzzle, we can solve it too.

Is that a brand new part?...

Is that a new MP800 head? Nope, just another high quality rebuild by the Peninsula Crusher Works team. This beautiful unit is ready to ship back to the customer and put back into service. It won't stay pretty for long, but I will guarantee that the customer will be pleasantly surprised with the condition it returns to them in. Just because it has been rebuilt doesn't mean it has to look that way. Taking pride in our process since 1917!

The peninsula Iron Works team is always up for a challenge...

Our team was selected to provide full disassembly, inspection, and reassembly of this very complex gear box, and we had one day to get it done. Our team was more than up for the challenge; starting at 5 am and had it strapped on the truck by 6:30 pm that same night. When the proverbial shit hits the fan, the Peninsula Iron Works team is the partner you want by your side. We will move mountains to make things happen for our customers/partners. Give Peninsula Iron Works a chance on your next shutdown project, and we promise you will see the difference.
