Our engineers are happy to talk you through which welding method and design choices are best for your part and overall project. We use value engineering (and cell manufacturing) to make the whole process smoother — from welding to storage — so take advantage of our free, no-pressure value engineering consultations.
Industrial Welding Options
What do contract welding services entail? Our industrial welding work breaks down into five categories:
If you want a welding design with a smooth finish, opt for a metal inert gas (MIG) machine. This form of arc welding produces a slag-free metal, making it great for stainless steel and aluminum projects (i.e. kitchen carts).
When you need a design that can handle joining two different metals, tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding is there for you. In TIG welding, the heat from the electrical currents helps your metal pieces hold together permanently, allowing for a long-lasting product.
This process is more complex than the others, but shouldn’t be overlooked. When you need a high-integrity sheet metal product, plasma arc welding may be worth the slower output.
Industries that benefit from plasma arc welding include:
One disadvantage of plasma arc welding is its greater heat input, which creates wider welds and heat-affected zones, potentially resulting in distortion and reduced mechanical properties.
Spot welding is ideal for stamping, assemblies, and sheet metal fabrications. We ensure economical, high-quality work by carefully considering:
- The amount of stress placed on spot weld locations
- The number of spot welds per foot of joined material
- The strength of the materials being joined
Seam welding, a continuous weld along a joint, is a variation of resistance spot welding. Seam welds are some of the more durable welds out there because they join so much surface area.
Because Blackstone is an all-in-one metal fabricator, our welding services can be combined several other services to consolidate costs and lead times. We also offer:
