Welding Processes

Our qualified operator and fully equipped mobile welding workshop provide the following welding processes:

  • Arc (Stick) Welding:
    Arc welding processes may be applied to a wide range of metals and alloys and are in use in nearly all areas of steel fabrication industry.
  • MIG Welding:
    Originally, the process was designed for welding aluminium and its alloys, using pure argon or helium shielding gas, but has been developed into what we know today as a process capable of welding a wide range of ferrous and non-ferrous metals and alloys.
  • TIG Welding:
    Tig Welding The TIG is not a high productivity process, but is capable of producing very high quality welds in a wide range of materials and in thicknesses up to about 8 or 10mm. It is particularly clean and produces little fumes, suited to welding of sheet material, stainless steel and for putting in the root run of pipe butt welds.
  • Flux Core:
    The main features of the process are high deposition rates, good weld fusion, alloying from the flux, weld metal support and shielding from the slag, and improved arc stability. The process is applied to welding a range of carbon and carbon-manganese steels, alloy steels and stainless steels. As well as welding, the process may also be used for surfacing and hardfacing.
  • Inner Shield Welding:
    The main benefit of Inner Shield welding is the efficient welding of structural steel outdoors, on a large scale. It can be used for root, fill and cap passes, as long as weld joints are prepared correctly, and all flux is removed between each pass. The process is applied to welding a range steels the process may also be used for surfacing and hardfacing.
  • Oxy/Acetylene Gas:
    Oxygen and acetylene are the gases used for this process because of the need for a high localised heat input and because they can more easily be controlled to give a precise neutral flame.
  • Brazing:
    Cast IronThe most widely used range of brazing alloys include aluminium brazing alloys, silver brazing alloys, copper-phosphorus brazing alloys and copper brazing alloys. There are also filler metals available for many other metals. They also cover a wide range of melting points for many different applications.
  • Soldering:
    Copper pipework is commonly joined by using soft solder. There are a number of assembly processes where a low heat input and low strength are needed these can be completed by using solder.
  • Stud Welding:
    Stud welding is an arc welding process in which a stud or similar metal part can be end-joined to a workpiece instantaneously. This stud welding process involves the same basic procedures and metallurgical aspects as any other arc welding procedure.
