Santa Barbara forge, breaking all of the rules in art and metal fabrication
Santa Barbara Forge & Iron is a business built on versatility. Here is their story:
My name is Dan Patterson and I started SBFI in 2005. It all started with my undergraduate art degree and a love for metal fabrication. It has evolved into a family business offering heirloom quality artisan metal products. Approaching the fabrication process from an arts perspective is all about making the materials do what they’re not supposed to do, and that has been one of the benchmarks of our business. Being able to handle a wide variety of design and fabrication challenges makes us unique, and my staff and I use everything from hammer and anvil to CNC machines to make it happen. Our success is predicated on being able to rapidly adapt from one job to another, and having tools and machinery that are versatile and reliable is critical to our survival. That is why whenever possible, I choose Baileigh Industrial metalworking machinery.

When I was recently asked to fabricate a complex geometric wall sculpture for a local business, I knew that Baileigh’s legendary precision would not only make this project possible, but profitable. I was able to use the PT-510HD plasma table to quickly fabricate some of the more complex segments while the R-M40 roll bender offered the precision repeatability that I needed for other sections. Moreover, the software package provided with the PT-510HD worked seamlessly with my existing design software so workflow was never adversely affected. Baileigh’s quality machinery has allowed us to pull off projects like this without batting an eye, and our business has seen tremendous growth as a result. I can rely on Baileigh Industrial to perform every time which not only takes the stress out of a complex fabrication problem, but makes the job a whole lot of fun. Thanks, Baileigh!
