How We Build Our Topsoil Screeners and Snow Plows
DeSite Plate Cutting
Quality Starts from using Quality Machine
Only plate with steel mill certification meets the quality standards set out for DeSite products. We cut all our steel plate up to 1/2 inch with Laser Machine Technology, and for plate from 5/8 to 1 inch, plasma and computer controlled (CNC) flame cut.
DeSite Forming and Bending
To ensure 100% accuracy in the forming process we use CNC bending machines. DeSite maintains 100% forming precision with our computer controlled Brake Press.
Tab and Slot Manufacturing
After forming, each piece is then double checked with a laser cut bend gauge to ensure the correct fit each and every time. This is essential to the fabrication process because our engineered tab and slot design commands 100% accuracy.
Lasered Weld Setbacks
DeSite manufactures superior quality with our superior engineering. Because we laser cut our steel plate, we are able to incorporate tab and slotting as part of the manufacturing process, ensuring a precision fit. We also use what, we call, weld penetration set backs when laser cutting from our DXF programs. Our lasered set back tabs separate steel parts 3/32 of an inch allowing for maximum penetration during the welding process.
All weldments for the DeSite screeners are fabricated in special jigs to ensure each screener comes out straight and square. After the fabrication process is completed, each screener is moved to the next station for welding.
Weldment Quality Control
Our quality control process includes a complete assembly of all the components that make up the DeSite screener.
We choose shot blasting over sand blasting in preparation for painting. Our 10ft x 14ft shot blast booth gives the best possible surface for the paint crystals to adhere during the powder coating process.
Once blasting is complete, a thick coat of Hammertone finish powder coat is applied and then baked on at 400 degrees. DeSite quality and excellence shines through with each and every screener we manufacture.
After the paint process is complete the assembly begins.
DeSite screeners are engineered
to work hard for you year after year.
A good example of this is our brass and anodized hardened steel bushings that we use in the hydraulic cylinder and feeder hinge bosses. Although the up-front manufacturing costs are higher to machine replaceable bushings, we feel the long term wear savings in the pin bosses are well worth the time and money.
This Hydraulic Power Pack is
100% DeSite ASM
We build this product start to finish, giving us the ability to control quality on all aspects of both manufacturing and assembly. These power packs are awaiting assembly quality check. Once assembly inspection is certified, each unit is connected to our hydraulic testing station for pressures to be set and a 2 hour run in.
We think about all aspects when designing our screening products. Our 2016 model portable screeners were a good example of all the innovative thought we put into our progressive designs. When shipping overseas in a 40ft container, we packaged:
- 6 units (DeSite SLG108VF)
- 6 Units (DeSite Riser Box Extension)
- 6 units (DeSite Portable Hydraulic Power Units)
You might think getting all of this equipment in one container requires a lot of disassembly for loading and reassembly upon arrival, but this is not so. All six DeSite SLG108 screeners come out of the containers fully assembled and ready to run.
The Riser Box Extension units take about 15 minutes to assemble with the bolts that are provided.
Even the six Hydraulic Power Units come out of the container fully assembled and ready to run.
Whether it is over the road or across the ocean, DeSite screeners have by far, the lowest freight costs due to our superior engineering.
