Big job or small jobs. From the simple to the challenging. One-off or repetitive. Irrespective of your needs, Cashman’s Engineering is THE longstanding, experienced and preferred engineering shop for all of East Gippsland.
Our workshop is the best equipped in our region. We have big sheds with the capacity to handle the biggest jobs. Our shop is conveniently located within a block of the Princes Highway and our drive through yard means that access is so easy.
At Cashman’s Engineering we support and service clients in primary production, manufacturing, transport and civil construction. There is no job that we cannot handle – there are few deadlines that we can’t meet or exceed.
When it comes to building metal structures, we have the experienced staff and best equipment to deliver on your project. Cutting, bending and welding is what we do, either to your design specifications or to a special project that just needs to be done.
Modifications sometimes need to be made to existing machinery or plant. We can beef it up, repair it or just make it operate the way that you want it to work.
When you need a welding job done by a qualified tradesman, a person who has been welding together steel, stainless, aluminium and other materials as their trade, then you know that the job will be done correctly every time.
This is an engineering task where experience counts. Within our workshop we have a complete range of welding processes…. MIG, TIG, arc and oxy should it ever be needed.
MIG welding (metal inert gas welding) is a process where a solid wire electrode is fed through a welding gun and into the weld pool joining the two base materials together. The shielding gas is also fed through the gun and prevents the weld pool from contamination. MIG welding is suitable for material from 24 gauge through to about 12.5 mm in thickness.
TIG welding (tungsten inert gas) is a form of arc welding. The process uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode that delivers the current to the welding arc. The tungsten and weld puddle are protected and cooled with an inert gas, typically argon. TIG welding is similar to oxy-acetylene welding in that you use a filler material for build-up or reinforcement.
The difference between MIG welding and TIG welding is that once process (MIG) uses a continuously feeding wire while the other (TIG) uses long hand-held welding rods.
Arc welding is a process that is used to join metal by using electricity to create enough heat to melt metal. The rod acts as an electrode which melts and becomes a molten filler. Arc welding is commonly used to join medium to heavy pieces of steel together.
The economic life of your equipment can be extended by refurbishing or rebuilding. We work on a huge variety of equipment and mechanical products in agriculture, manufacturing, transportation and general industry.
Wear and tear is an inevitable part of productivity. So rather than look at replacing your equipment, we can extend the life equipment by assessing the current status of your plant, check for OH&S and safety then advise of the most economic option to return your plant to a productive state.
Rebuilding your equipment is a viable option at Cashman’s Engineering.
Fitting & turning
At Cashman’s Engineering we have a fully equipped machine shop with up-to-date lathes and milling machines ready to handle large and not so large jobs. Skilled tradesmen can turn, bore, mill, cut key ways and lots more to the most stringent tolerances.
Irrespective of your machining requirements, we can assist with a quality result to your specifications. We can also pickup and deliver from your location.
There are times when you acquire plant and find that it’s not quite for your needs. It may be something that you acquired secondhand or something that has been in business for a while.
We achieve the seemingly impossible and thrive on the difficult. It’s what we do to help out our clients. To find out what is possible, contact us and simply ask the question. One thing that you can be sure of is a straight answer.
Equipment breaks down, usually at the least inconvenient time. We can repair damaged or non-operational equipment either on-site or in our workshop, promptly and efficiently.
At Cashman’s Engineering, we understand the adage that time is money. That’s why we move promptly to assess the damage, order any necessary parts and get your equipment back into operation in the minimum amount of time.
Surface grinding is used to produce a smooth finish on flat surfaces. From cylinder heads to facing off gears to a thousand and one other applications to flatten a surface, we have the equipment and technicians to deliver a precise, and flat, job.
Milling & boring
Our shop has a variety of lathes which allow the skilled technicians to mill or turn metal to precise tolerances. We also have the capability to bore (make a hole) on a lathe with great accuracy.
Milling and boring processes are the core skill of a fitter and turner. Our expansive workshop has a variety of lathes operated by experienced tradesmen …. to produce precision parts for your project.
Gears, sprockets and all sorts of devices are located on a shaft by use of a keyway. When a keyway is cut on the shaft and the matching part, the key is inserted and ‘locks’ the parts together so they turn as one.
We can mill a variety of matching keyway from a convention square to flat, dowel, woodruff and much more.
