What makes co-line different

There are others who provide metal fabrication services. Why choose Co-Line? We promise you the best quality, service, and overall value for your dollar. We call this promise THE CO-LINE EDGE. And we support it with quality fabrication technology and processes that ensure you get the best every day, on every part we produce for you. To begin, we’re fanatical about our quality processes—measurable, repeatable, documented methods for production. Our approach is consistent with the best thinking in manufacturing today.

  • ISO 9001-2008 Certification (2017 – 2020)  is your assurance of work that conforms to international standards for excellence.
  • Following the Theory of Constraints, we work continually to identify and remove limiting factors in our production systems. The optimal throughput results in savings for you.
  • According to principles of Cellular Manufacturing, we organize our systems for the most efficient material flow, reducing cost and lead times for you.
  • Six Sigma statistical modeling helps ensure every production run is defect-free.
  • Technical certifications, such as AWS D1.1 Welders and MSHA Underground Welding further attest to the professionalism you expect from us.
  • And because we serve you with the most advanced metal fabrication tools available, maintained in top operational condition, you never get delays or excuses “blaming the equipment.”

In 2003, Co-Line installed the first Mazak SpaceGear 3D laser in Iowa. We now provide complete 2D and 3D laser cutting services for any shape, size, and configuration, including tubes from 1″ through 10″ in diameter. Our advanced computer systems enable ultra-efficient material usage and allow us to turn CAD geometry into a finished product in under sixty minutes.
