Steel Fabrication

CNC Steel Fabrication

The SHBC steel manufacturing process uses the latest computer driven machines, operated by numerical control technology (CNC). Our factory is equipped with a comprehensive range of CNC - driven machines, including:

  • CNC Drill Line
    Fully Automated for drilling profile sections and also capable of scribing, hard marking and milling
  • CNC Beam Coping
    Robotic structural steel burning system maps the profile of steel beams by precision cutting using either an oxy or plasma torch.
  • CNC Controlled Band Saws
    Fitted with large electronically operated saws capable of batch processing profile.
  • CNC Shot Blasting and Painting Line
    Shot - blasts profiles and playes to SA 2.5 and higher from 6 different angles at one time. The blasted product is automatically shifted to another machines for primer coating built within the line.
  • CNC Plate Processing Line
    By drilling, hard marking or plasma or Oxy cutting (punching), this machine batch-processes steel plate accurately and uniformly. A major advantage is the machine's ability to minimize waste by intelligently 'nesting' before cutting.

Packaged Type Steel Enclosures

Our signature product is fabricated, assembled and packaged at our plant. Fabricated from complex lightweight through heavyweight steel, these structures support gathering centers, high rise buildings, desalination plants, refineries, petrochemical plants and other industrial facilities used for on-shore and off-shore operations. Our proven, high quality products exceed industry standards. SHBC steel treatment techniques are considered among the best in the region.

Each enclosure undergoes rigorous testing and inspection prior to shipment, and is transported on our 500 ton hydraulic trailer.

Steel enclosure options:

  • Fire - resistance rating
  • Blast resilience
  • Heat insulation
  • Humidity Control
  • Fire fighting & fire alarm system
  • Pressurization
  • Air conditioning
  • Explosion roof

Structural Steel Component: Knock Down State

An innovative product for on-site assembly: SHBC fabricates and delivers structural steel components in knock down state, with detailed assembly drawings to facilitate erection on site.


Mandrel Repair

Mandrels are specialized drilling tools subjected to severe stresses at different positions. Our procedure for mandrel repair was developed in house to serve the region’s oil drilling industry. The SHBC machine shop operates state-of-the-art industrial equipment, including:

  • Lathes
  • Vertical and Horizontal Milling Machine
  • Radial Press
  • NDT Magna-Flux Tester


  • Our custom built honing machine is capable of honing up to 21 inches in diameter and 30 feet in length, ensuring quality surface finish for best performance.


  • Two custom 35 foot polishers provide high quality finish of chrome surfaces.


  • Cylindrical grinding machine up to 24” diameter x 13’ length provides precision grinding process and ensures that exact specifications are met.


  • Certified welders weld using equipment including TIG, MIG and ARC


Pump and Motor

  • SHBC thoroughly tests all components on a diesel driven 450 test bench, one of the largest and most versatile benches in the region. This powerfully computerized bench checks that volumetric accuracy and overall efficiency is attained within the limits defined by OEMs.
  • All controls and pressure points are properly set, and seals are tested for any external leaks.
  • Our 36” power lapping machine is capable of lapping parts to within one millionth of an inch.

Hydraulic Cylinders

  • SHBC technicians repair, rebuild, recondition, disassemble/assemble and test hydraulic cylinders.
  • All hydraulic cylinders are tested


Chrome Tanks: Automatic temperature control and periodic reverse chroming ensures consistent, high quality chrome plating tanks. Horizontal capacity 40’, vertical capacity 12’, parts diameter up to 5’

Ball Valves: Our custom spherical grinding machine enables us to grind round surfaces to pre-set limits. Cracks on ball valves are ground down, rebuilt by welding, then ground to approved clearances and hard chromed to final finish. Ball valves up to 24” can be repaired and delivered within a short period of time.

Metal Stitching

On-site/in house inspection of cracks

On-site repairs, including without dismantling

Dye penetrant examination; magnetic particle damage assessment

State of the art practices

  • SHBC uses proprietary stitching pins with patented hook threads to replace the crack itself. As the pins are torqued, a radial drawing force is created by pulling the two sides of the joint together. The sealing mechanism of the pin is complex, with many metal-to-metal contact surfaces.
  • Locks made of high strength 4130 steel add additional strength to repairs.


Cargo capacity up to 500MT


CNC Seal Profiling Machine

Molded seals

Extensive inventory includes:

  • U-Cups
  • Buffer Seals
  • Food Grade seals approved by the FDA
  • Rod and pin wipers
  • Spectra seals
  • Piston seals
  • Imperial and metric O-rings
  • Seals for leading heavy equipment brands
