Types of Work Our Skilled Professionals Handle

MIG Welding

MIG welding or metal inert gas welding (also known as gas metal arc welding) is a welding process where an electric current creates enough heat to melt a consumable wire electrode and the workpiece metal causing them to melt and join together. Originally used in the 1940s for welding non-ferrous metals and aluminium it was quickly adapted for use on steel as it offers a quick weld compared to other welding techniques.

TIG Welding

TIG welding or tungsten inert gas welding (also known as gas tungsten arc welding) Is similar to MIG welding but instead of using a consumable wire electrode the electric current melts long welding rods which slow feed into a puddle.

TIG welding is slower than MIG but can be used on thinner pieces of work and is more intricate for delicate pieces of work. TIG welding is more difficult to do but can be applied to a wider variety of welding requirements.

Spot Welding

Resistance spot welding is where an electric current is applied to a spot to join 2 pieces of metal together. 2 copper alloy electrodes are used to concentrate the current onto a small spot. The electric current produces heat to melt the metal; too little current and the spot will form a poor weld but too much and the metal will melt excessively causing the ejection of molten material and a hole in the workpiece.

The high level of energy is applied over a very short period of time meaning the weld takes place at the spot without overheating the remainder of the piece. Spot welding machines are very commonly used in the car production industry.

Projection Welding

This is a variation on spot welding where the current is concentrated on a raised section or projection for the welding of heavier pieces or the closing of spaces. It is often used to weld studs, nuts and other threaded machine parts to metal plate.

Stud Welding

Stud welding is a type of flash welding used to weld a fastener or weld studs to a piece of metal. The studs can come in a variety of forms both treaded and unthreaded. The fastener can be attached to a different metal to what it is made of. The bond formed is strong and permanent.
