Hello again everyone,
this week we diversified!
An important client of ours wished to have some 6.35mm diameter aluminium coils rolled. The outside diameter of the coil was to be a small 100mm. AI&S approached 3 different suppliers in the Brisbane and Gold Coast regions for quotes as we don’t roll or bend tube. One submitted a very expensive cost, one said “no sorry we can’t do it” and the third just said “yeah I’ll get onto your quote shortly” that was 3 weeks ago! So...
Did you know that AI&S can supply you with repairs or replacement hydraulic cylinder rods?
If you have a worn or damaged thread we can repair it and have it back in service very quickly. If the shaft itself is worn, corroded or damaged a replacement shaft will need to be ordered. We use multiple suppliers of the hard chrome bar so waiting for material to arrive is never an issue. Your new bars will be sent back to you wrapped in...
Every once in a while we have a customer who would like made for them a decoration, a piece of art, some outdoor furniture frames or even a letterbox that is not available anywhere in any store.
If you strive for something that is different to set your house or place of business apart from all the other same boring mass produced parts that everyone else has then working with us to have your idea turn into a reality is very easy.
Contact us with what you imagine, we will work...
Here is a little job that we have recently completed for one of Australia's largest materials handling companies.
We were brought a sample of a castle nut and were told they were not available for purchase anywhere off the shelf. The customer needed them
in a hurry and we were asked if we could make some up.
Within a day they had these items that we machined from solid round bar stock on their machines and working.
We hope that everyone has had a safe and happy Christmas and New Year break.
AI&S is back up and running and look forwards to the new year.
Hello, AI&S will be closing over the christmas and new year break.
We will be closed from the end of business on Friday the 20th of December until the 6th of January 2014.
Of course we will still be checking our email, taking any calls to mobiles and also if required trying to orgainse any emergency break down work that is required.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
We'll post four jobs here that really showcase AI&S's ability to diversify and work to the customers needs.
The first job is a Pivot Shaft that must be replicated. With no provided drawings AI&S used precision measuring equipment to replicate the part given to us in the form of a 3D model. We can now create the part from scratch upon request.
we have some materials that are not an off the shelf product.
A couple of these sizes are items that need to be ordered in from the mills in sling quantity.
We are selling them by the length 8M long each (we can cut the length down for transportation purposes if required).
Sizes and grades:
- 65x35x3 RHS Grade:450 @ 8000mm long each. (30 lengths...

Sacrificial Anodes are highly active metals that are used to prevent a less active material surface from corroding. Sacrificial Anodes are created from a metal alloy with a more negative electrochemical potential than the other metal it will be used to protect. The sacrificial anode will be consumed in place of the metal it is protecting, which is why it is...
