Steel and Welding in Your Winnebago’s Sidewalls

Within Winnebago’s SuperStructure design, there are steel welded joints that are stronger and more durable than competitors.

Larger than two full-size football fields, Winnebago’s dedicated steelworking facility processes sheet, tube, and roll-stock steel. Winnebago uses a vast array of computer-controlled lasers, turret punching machines and presses to manufacture parts to close tolerances not readily achievable with other methods. Winnebago uses precision cuts and robotic welders to produce high quality materials.

Robotic Welder

Precision cuts using high-tech lasers allow greater design flexibility while creating stronger components, reducing waste, and reducing cost by maximizing material utilization. A robotic welder provides precise high-quality welds in crucial applications reducing waste and ensuring consistently strong joints.

Winnebago also uses other technology including nesting software, laser tube cutters, and turret punching centers to produce the strongest, most durable structure. Nesting software “nests” parts together for production purposes, allowing us to maximize the yield of parts produced from any given piece of material. While some manufacturers use less-accurate manual saws or cut-off saws, our laser tube cutter precisely cuts structural tubing to length. It can also cut shapes into a tube, and even etches the length of each part directly onto the tube. Winnebago’s turret punching centers are capable of loading material, punching, shearing and sorting all the scrap in one operation. These machines will produce 440 tons of parts annually.

The Winnebago Superstructure is just one of the many reasons why Winnebago is the Motorhome manufacturer of choice for many RVers.
