BTR Fabrications offer a subcontract framebuilding and design service to suit your needs; from concept development and detailed design, through machining and fabrication, to paint and finishing.
With 7 years’ CAD experience BTR Fabrications can produce detailed designs according to your needs, whether they are destined for manufacture in house, elsewhere in the UK, or overseas. We also offer Finite Element Analysis and simulation services to ensure that your product will meet any performance requirements before it is produced.
BTR Fabrications have a combined 20 years of machining experience, and can produce precision machined parts on our manual lathe and mill.
With a range of tooling and the ability to produce complex jigs in-house, we can accommodate a large range of work in various materials, including steel, stainless steel, aluminium alloys, brass and plastics. We have close working relationships with CNC machinists, so we can source parts of any complexity at very competitive prices.
BTR Fabrications have over 8 years’ welding experience, much of which has been exclusively on bicycle frames. As TIG welding specialists we are ideally equipped to produce high strength joints, especially in steel bicycle tubing. We have access to equipment to fillet and capillary braze whenever necessary; for major frame joints or small braze-ons. We also offer MIG welding services for jig fabrication.
We can also source any finish you might need; from a basic single-colour powder coat, through detailed wet-spray, to electro-plating and metallic finishes.
