At Brooks Forgings we offer over 20 in-house manufacturing processes that enable us to produce a wide range of standard and fully bespoke components to customer requirements. A recent order for a prestigious client involved producing a quantity of bespoke post tops to be used as part of a new footbridge project at an undisclosed location in the UK. The post tops are fabricated using 4 separate components and when fully assembled stand at an impressive 1125mm tall and weigh around 175kg each.
The base measures 550x550x60mm thick and is fully machined with bevelled edge. The lower collar is machined from solid using a 380mm diameter by 300mm long billet. A 300mm diameter hollow sphere sits on top of the lower collar and is pre-machined to take the pointed top section that is machined from a 110mm diameter by 480mm billet. Our skilled fabricators fully welded the assembled components to produce the finished post top as shown in the photo.
