Aluminium Welding services
Aluminium welding is trickier than steel welding but it is something that Orgbar can offer. We supply aluminium extrusion that is mitre cut and then welded to provide our customers with corner sections, we also weld tags onto end caps that then fit on to the end of the extrusion.
The most complex welding job we have completed is the welding of an aluminium farm animal transit pen (Transus Box). All of these parts can be delivered prepared for your own painting or anodised finish, or we can deliver finished to your specification.
Our Methods of Aluminium Welding
The most common welding method for aluminium that we offer is Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), also known as Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding. This is an arc welding process that uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to produce the weld. The welded area is protected from atmospheric contamination by an inert shielding gas (argon or helium), and a filler metal is normally used. However some welds, known as autogenous welds, do not require it. A constant-current welding power supply produces electrical energy, which is conducted across the arc through a column of highly ionised gas and metal vapours known as plasma.
Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding grants the operator greater control over the weld than equivalent processes such as shielded metal arc welding and gas metal arc welding, allowing for stronger, higher quality welds. However, MIG welding is comparatively more complex and difficult to master, and is significantly slower than most other welding techniques. A related process, plasma arc welding, uses a slightly different welding torch to create a more focused welding arc and as a result is often automated.
Our welders are highly experienced and the finish on our jobs have to be perfect, making our quality second to none.See our Industries
