MaiCo uses in-house engineering, detailing and quality control to meet the customers’ specifications for high mast light poles. Our lighting poles are produced efficiently. Since we are centrally located in the United States in Ellsworth, Kansas, and we have access to many shipping options, your light pole will be produced quickly and shipped economically to your location in the United States. We can also help coordinate international shipments.
Steel light poles that are manufactured by MaiCo Industries are multi-sided steel poles. Steel poles may have 8 sides, 12 sides, 16 sides or 18 sides. 16-sided steel poles or 18-sided steel poles may be formed to provide a circular appearance, even though they are multi-sided.
Steel for lighting poles is made in the U.S.A. MaiCo Industries' equipment includes a de-coiler and leveling line with CNC shear so steel may be cut to length at our site. After cutting the carbon steel, a 60 foot press brake is used to bend the steel. The Pacific press brake has 5’ deep throat, lasers at both ends and 1 million pounds of bend force per sq. inch. The 60 foot x 2000 ton capacity allows MaiCo to brake typical shaft materials up to ¾” x 60’-0” and a light pole diameter of up to 8’-0”.
The multi-sided shaft is then welded with a 3-plate beam welder using submerged-arc welding with 1,000 amp capacity to 60” and 102” depth.
Department of Transportations (DOTs) including: KDOT, PennDOT, MoDOT, FDOT, CDOT, MDOT, and TxDot are all states that MaiCo is authorized to provide lighting poles. We are also certified by Clark County, NV, WA Certified and City of Phoenix.
Maico is also an AISC (American Institute of Steel Construction) Certified Fabricator, The CWB (Canadian Welding Bureau), and AWS (American Welding Society).
When required, poles are inspected by a certified weld inspector to ensure the quality of the weld.
High mast light poles are built to your specifications.
