Astra Engineering

Precision & Reliability

At Astra Engineering, we offer a range of bending, plating, powder coating, welding, and product assembly services as part of our core fabrication services in Wirral and surrounding areas. Our leading sheet metal fabrication processes are all delivered with the utmost precision and reliability with the aim of reducing costs and lead times for clients. We do all of this with the help of our state-of-the-art production machines, the latest CNC technology, and plenty of practice and experience.

Our Services

Metal Bending Services

Metal bending is often a complicated process, but our highly-skilled machines, whether that be CNC punching, laser cutting, etc., make the process much smoother. We offer our Wirral metal bending service as a single process, combined with other fabrication services, or alongside other services in a complete fabrication package. We shape metals ready for any metal product you need and we provide you with all the necessary subsequent services such as installation and maintenance.

Welding Services

Our welding shop allows us to construct any small to medium size fabrication using aluminum, carbon steel, and stainless steel. While most of our work revolves around precision sheet metal services or plate materials, we are not restricted to those materials by any means. We are happy to work on sub-contracted projects using special resources if needed. As with our metal bending services, we provide welding services as a standalone service or as part of a total package.

Qualified Experts

We are proud to offer Birkenhead metalworking services with complete compliance and highest quality. We adhere to all British Standard specifications and other codes such as Class 1 Coded Welding and BS EN 287-1 2011.

Our Welding Methods

We use a range of welding methods including traditional gas welding, metal inert gas welding (MIG), tungsten inert gas welding (TIG), and spot welding. All welding duties are performed by highly qualified and skilled operators. Our steel fabricators can work with most materials, including aluminium, carbon steel, and stainless steel to create a finished product that meets a specification.

1. Metal Inert Gas Welding (MIG)

Our MIG welding process uses heat generated by a DC electrical arc to fuse Wirral metals. The process is highly versatile and offers quick turn-around times.

2. Tungsten Inert Gas Welding (TIG)

TIG welding uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to weld objects together. This method offers more precise control for a better-quality weld and can be used to weld most materials.

3. Spot Welding

Spot welding involves welding overlapping pieces of metal at “spots” by applying pressure and electrical current. Spot welding enables welding thin sheets of metal work. Spot welding is also one of the cheapest welding options.

Top Quality Service

Our team is committed to providing the best quality service. We aim to strike a fine balance between performing our coating and plating processes in-house and using external contractors when necessary. Whether the work for your Wirral company is done in-house or by outside help, we always apply the strictest possible controls and testing to ensure customer satisfaction. We strive to deliver a safe, high-quality, and protected product to our clients.

Metal Finishing

We can process small parts or big assemblies. We also work one-off jobs or high-volume tasks. Our metal finishing options include:

  • Cold galvanic coating
  • Hot dip galvanizing
  • Zinc plating
  • Chroming
  • Painting
  • Electro-Plating
  • Metal Plating
  • Zinc Plating

Metal Plating

The Metal process for businesses in Wirral offers several benefits that make it an integral part of the process. Metal plating improves corrosion resistance, product strength, increased solderability, altered conductivity, reduced friction, and improved magnetism.


We here at Astra Engineering offer a managed service. This means we assemble, test, warehouse, and deliver all products for clients. Our assembly services are flexible and designed to suit your needs for metal and sheet metal fabrication.

We can assemble products in-house using free-issue parts from you or using a wide range of products we source and fabricate onsite. Based on your supply chain needs and order specifications, our purchasing team can find and stock any necessary parts and equipment.

Count on our experts in Wirral and surrounding areas to produce everything from cable assemblies and power distribution units to AC/DC circuitry.
