The basis of CAUSEWAYs manufacturing programme is
production presswork utilising high speed presswork utilising high speed presses from 10
to 120 tonnes to pierce, form, crop and punch strip materials from 1mm to 6mm thick and up
to 150mm wide.
As a proprietary product utilising mechanical presses, CAUSEWAY produce a mechanically
locked grid to be used primarily as an open steel grating.
Its method of production allows grids to be manufactured from materials as diverse as
carbon steel and high nickel alloys.
Material limitations depend only on the mechanical properties of the metals specified to
allow forming and piercing during production and provide adequate mechanical stability in
Offshore production platform flare tower, heat and acoustic
shielding, manufactured for the protection of flare tower structural steelwork and rig
personnel from the heat and noise of the flared gasses.
Manufactured in both high nickel alloys and austenitic stainless steels to meet the
arduous conditions of temperature and the corrosive operating environment of an offshore
platform. Radiation decking can be provided to clients own design or from proven
designs, utilising either reflective or insulating tiles to achieve the desired
Incinerator and Reactor Catalyst Support Grids
Fabrications using standard CAUSEWAY designs for light and
heavy weight grids, manufactured in stainless and high nickel alloys, square, rectangular
and hexagonal aperture, welded and mechanically locked construction.
Fabrication of single items up to three tonnes unit weight are
undertaken in our own workshops. Materials of manufacture extend from Cr Mo Steels to High
Nickel Alloys, in a range of thicknesses. ASME Coded Manual and Semi-Automatic Welding is
undertaken in-house by CAUSEWAYs trained workshop force.
CAUSEWAYs QA/QC department ensures that purpose raised Inspection and Test Plans are
actioned to ensure that conformity to Drawings, Codes, Specifications and Client operating
staff hold current certification to enable them to undertake required welding. NDE
utilising Radiographic, Ultrasonic, MPI and DPE are initiated on required contracts by
accredited CSWIP contracted Inspectors.
All detail and Engineering Drawing, Material Schedules etc are produced utilising the
latest Computer Aided Drawing systems to ensure accuracy.
CNC 3Dimensional Wire
Causeway offer sub-contract 3 dimensional wire
forming utilising 5 axis multihead computer controlled production equipment.
We operate in a range from 3mm to 10mm diameter wires and in a range of materials to suit.
Attainable accuracy during production:- Feed Length = ± 0.05mm
Radial forming = ± 0.02°
The versatility of CNC production equipment allows:-
Repeatable accuracy on
difficult 3 dimensional shapes.
Just in time manufacture due
to short programming and set up times.
A capability of shaping
successive different products or similar products in small batches.
Prototype, short and medium
production runs on a cost effective basis.
Enquiries for item manufacture
within the above range are welcomed.
