Spot welding is an ideal assembly operation for light steel gauges. It allows highly repeatable and reliable metal welding, all with rapid process times and a very small heat affected zone on the welded part. We have a variety of spot welding machines of different duties and specialised fabrication workbenches, jigs and fixtures to ensure accuracy and square-ness of any fabrication work. We typically spot weld steel gauges up to 1.2 mm.
We offer both MIG and TIG welding services for steel, stainless steel and aluminium. MIG welding is significantly faster but can require finishing work, whilst TIG welding gives a much cleaner as-welded finish and is reliably used for lighter gauge metals. We have experienced engineering fabricators on staff to meet your requirements for both MIG and TIG welding.
We use soldering techniques to seal items, making them waterproof. Typically joins are secured first with spot welds before soldering, for a mechanically sound joint as well as a waterproof one.
Sheet metal inserts typically allow assembly using threaded fasteners, for example press fit nuts in an enclosure allows items to be securely bolted into or onto the enclosure. The world of inserts, and our experience with them, ranges beyond typical treaded options however, see this catalogue for what is available. We have an insertion press with a range of tooling for insert installation. We also have spin riveting and Riv-nut installation options.
We have a skilled and efficient assembly line where parts are assembled using fastener systems ranging from common place to customised. We can accommodate fastener technology appropriate to your designs.
