A better way to manufacture this part?

Hi all


Long time SW user, First time posting on here


After some ideas, we currently manufacture the 'door jambs' in the attached part in house out of 4 seperate folded 3mm plate parts welded in a square, then welding the 5mm lip on top for the drip rail. the weld is then ground back flush and tidy. The door is profile cut and folded for us.


The complete frame is then welded corner to corner in the front wall of the tank.


Any ideas on how we could manufacture this part in one piece? or in a way we can cnc profile cut and fold it.


Feel free to have a play with the attached file (SW19) and come up with some ideas. 


Thanks in advance.
