Dalsin Industries: The Frontrunner in Metal Fabrication
Follow Dalsin Industries on :
Metal fabrication may have started years ago when early man extracted metal from meteorite ores and gradually learned that it could be shaped to serve his needs. Since then, metal fabrication has come a long way through evolution of processes, technologies, and the raw metal materials. Today, if we look around, we find many raw metal or alloy products that are manufactured using different fabrication processes. From automotive equipment, medical apparatus to home appliances, every product undergoes various processes starting from procuring the metal, laser cutting, and punching followed by welding to give the final shape to a product. Finally, the product is painted and delivered to customers in different industries.
Metal fabrication processes are carried out by Bloomington-based Dalsin Industries on a daily basis to manufacture complex automotive equipment, medical instruments, appliances, DC racking, and storage systems among others. Rightly positioned in the high-value contract manufacturing market of precision model components and products, Dalsin delivers unique metal manufacturing services through a combination of design for manufacture (DFM) application, product design assistance, high-velocity manufacturing processes, and planning control. “These capabilities allow us to manufacture exemplary quality components and build the final product, which helps us to be more cost competitive,” says Tom Schmeling, VP of Sales, Dalsin Industries.
From metal cutting, punching, bending, welding to electro-mechanical assembly, Dalsin manages everything efficiently and ships the final product to its customers. In some cases, it supplies components, in others it takes responsibility for the entire manufacturing process through full assembly of the product. Dalsin’s approach toward manufacturing a product is known as the “new product introduction process.” While onboarding a new customer, the Dalsin team develops an understanding of their requirements relating to quality, cost, and final delivery. After analyzing the client’s operational and quality-related requirements, the team manufactures the product and ensures complete fit with customer expectations.
Dalsin solves customers’ manufacturing issues by integrating people, processes, and production technologies.

Leveraging its unique integration methodology, the firm has manufactured cost-effective products for a multitude of customers over the years. Dalsin managed a cost reduction exercise for one of its customers and saved 22 percent of the product cost by making it more manufacturing-friendly. The firm also modified the design for efficient production and succeeded in fulfilling the client requirements. Fulfilling customer needs has been Dalsin’s first priority, which can be illustrated by an example of another successful project wherein a client was dealing with a complex cart assembly that had 26 different components. The customer wanted the components to be assembled in a systematic manner and entrusted the task to Dalsin. The Dalsin team proposed the idea of designing the component in six parts and congregated them to complete cart assembly for the client.
Having delivered various such capabilities to its clientele, Dalsin has grown twice as fast as the overall metal fabrication industry over the past ten years and is already among the top 10 contract manufacturers in the U.S. “We have been successful owing to our focus on addressing customer needs and how we get involved cross-functionally in helping them optimize the solutions for their customer base,” mentions Schmeling.
The exceptional engineering and development expertise allows Dalsin to associate itself with clients’ specific requirements for complex components. Dalsin brings in extra value in terms of quality for its clientele, which earns it a stellar reputation and recognition. To continue this growth trajectory, the company has made an investment in robotics welding technology for one of its customers and will continue to invest in the advanced technologies to support offer the best possible services to its clientele.
