Kentex Steel Welding Equipment US Manufacturing – About Us

Kentex, established in 1985, is a United States (USA) manufacturer of steel processing equipment. We serve the pre-engineered steel building industry, specialty welding for multiple industries, robotic welding integration for multiple industries and architectural metals processing.

Kentex standard welding fixtures for pre-engineered steel building manufacturing typically use the submerged arc welding process. Custom fixtures, designed for various welding automation needs, will incorporate the most appropriate welding process. Custom fixtures typically include many standard product items, eliminating the risk associated with custom solutions.

Kentex coil processing equipment allows decoiling, slitting, cut-to-length and recoiling of architectural metals in a variety of coated, bare of pre-painted finishes.

Kentex manufactures three models of pre-engineered steel building rigid frame welders, utilizing the submerged arc welding process. Different models include gantry/clamp bed type and pull through or extrusion type welders.

For the pre-engineered steel building industry, Kentex provides consulting services associated with plant layout, materials handling efficiency, equipment capacity requirements, equipment procurement (new and used) and software evaluation. Kentex consulting services are often tied to equipment sales and the cost and services required can vary widely.

For the specialty welding industry, Kentex can provide custom designed welding systems, providing a total solution to your needs. Kentex recently completed an automatically guided dual-head welding system for a manufacturer of heat exchangers, increasing their welding productivity by 40% versus their previous system.

Kentex can provide multiple solutions to improve welding productivity. Kentex is a licensed integrator for Lincoln welding equipment and Fanuc robotics. Where appropriate, Kentex can provide a robotic welder and custom designed weld fixtures as a single responsibility vendor. Sometimes, Kentex can provide hard automation which is more applicable, productive and cost effective than robotics. Kentex can help you make required productivity and cost analysis.
