Fabrication - Here's a few photos of our manufacturing location, the machinery we use, and the fabrication process that goes into all AN Wireless Self Supporting Towers.
our tower legs is by far our most critical operation in the plant. AN
Wireless tower legs each begin as A-572 Gr. 50 plate that we purchase leveled in
bulk 60" x 122" sheets, both 1/4" and 3/16" thick. All material is domestic.
plate is carried over to the high-definition plasma table where all holes are burned
and the material is cut to a precision width and length.
high-def plasma burns each hole, and then cuts each leg to size.
plate now yields ten complete tower legs after about 75 minutes of burn time.

Mississippi. This is the newest addition to our plant. Typical ram repeat repeat
accuracy is +- .001". Our Press Brake offers absolute consistency in the bend
radius over the entire 10 foot length of the material.

brake also offers a heavy duty back gauge, electronically programmable.
