Stevenage’s Sheet Metal welding specialists have the expertise to select the most appropriate type of welding for your needs, balancing speed, efficiency, strength and quality. We are able to weld materials of any size in our extensive shop-floor space.
The types of welding we offer for to suit different materials and applications include:
Metal inert gas (MIG) welding is a fast, versatile process producing high-quality welds, and can reduce lead times and production costs. It is suitable for fusing mild steel, stainless steel and aluminium.
MIG welding uses a continuous wire electrode to create an arc between the electrode and the target materials. Heat from the arc melts the electrode and materials, with a shielding gas protecting the weld from oxidation.
Tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding requires the high levels of skills and expertise of our experienced welders to produce a superior aesthetic finish, needing little cleaning, sanding or grinding. TIG welding’s slower process enables much greater control and precision to produce strong welds, ideal for joining together thin metal sheets.
TIG welding uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to create an arc, shielded by inert argon or helium, to fuse together two pieces of metal. An optional filler material can be added separately.
Spot welding (or resistance spot welding) fuses together sheet metals, from 0.5mm to 3mm thick, at selected points. Spot welding is an effective way of fusing sheet metals without risk of excessive heat build-up which can deform the sheets.
We use projection welding to attach weld studs, nuts or fastening parts. Projection welding combines an electrical current with pressure to join together parts specifically designed to meet in a strong joint.
