“Hot Rod” / Specialty Automotive Components

The specialty car market requires a wide variety of unique and original types of parts and components. It takes a unique and original type of fabricator to meet the highly specialized requirements of the hot rod automotive industry.

At Helander, we understand how to make components that will have the structural integrity to withstand the temperatures and conditions found in engines and high-performance vehicles.

In order to fabricate these featured specialty car components, we use a combination of metal spinning and hydroforming processes. Working with stainless steel and CRS, the material is spun to form the cylindrical shapes, tight curves, and intricate grooves required of these components.

By applying sheet hydroforming capabilities, we complete the fabrication of the parts to the client’s precise specifications. Typical material thicknesses range from 0.047” to 0.125”, with tolerances typically held to +/-0.003”.

Our outstanding metal spinning capabilities form high-performance parts with the hardness, tensile strength, reliability, and resistance to fatigue that is required by the hot rod industry. To learn more about our specialty car components and other services, please contact Helander today.

Steel Housings for Street & Sanitation Vehicles

In order to manufacture housings for street and sanitation vehicles, Helander relies on a combination of spinning, welding, and machining processes. Steel housings made through these processes have the required structural integrity to handle the demanding environment and conditions found in the sanitation and trucking industry.

Working with steel and stainless steel in thicknesses ranging from 0.060” to 0.375”, we use CNC turning and milling as our primary cutting methods. Housings made through spin forming are efficiently produced with minimal tooling costs.

Our components meet the exacting standards of our clients as well as our own. Tolerances of +/-0.020” are typical for these housings. Utilizing our top-quality capabilities enables us to provide the highest quality products.

As the leader in the metal spinning industry, Helander has the experience and skill to fabricate intricate metal components for a wide range of applications. The hardness, tensile strength, and resistance to fatigue make our components durable and reliable.
