What is welding manufacturing?

When precision manufacturing calls for welding capabilities, our skilled artisans provide various welding manufacturing options from prototype to production. These different welding techniques allow us to accommodate many industries and materials.

Welding fabrication joins materials together.

The metals melt using concentrated high heat, pressure, or both, fusing them together permanently. After it cools, the fusion of metals often results in a stronger material than the original metal. Welding manufacturing is often vital in the metal fabrication process. Our professional welders are on staff. Additionally, each procedure is monitored closely for accuracy and weld appearance. Consequently, you’ll always get your metal part looking and performing at top levels and beyond expectations.

Similar to MIG welding is flux cored arc welding. The difference being the metal filler has a core of flux. This core creates a gas shield around the weld. FCAW is a heavy and powerful weld most often used in structural welding. For this reason, Flux cored arc welding often uses hard metals, including carbon steel, cast iron, stainless steel, and hard-facing alloys. Contrarily, it will not use nonferrous metals and metal alloys.

Thicker metals often require the flux cored arc welding method. Not recommended for anything over 20 gauge, it is excellent for use on thinker metals. One of the benefits of FCAW is its efficiency in reducing waste. Moreover, it is often a low-cost option for customers using thicker metals on large jobs such as structural steel components. However, this method requires cleanup for a nicely fashioned weld appearance. One negative side of FCAW welding is its inability to use it with many pure metals such as aluminum, copper, lead, nickel, tin, titanium, and zinc.

SMAW uses a flux coated filler stick to create the weld. Due to its robust properties and no need for gas, this method is useful outdoors. Additionally, it is effective on rusted, painted, and dirty surfaces, making it ideal for repair welding. Another advantage is that skilled welders can swap out different types of electrodes for use on many other materials.

SMAW’s main benefit is its versatility. It also is useful in welding in both ferrous and nonferrous metal alloys. SMAW is also a low-cost welding method. Although the SMAW weld often has a less refined appearance than other welding procedures.

MIG stands for metal inert gas, and is also called gas metal arc welding (GMAW). The first thing to know about MIG welding is that it is a fusion welding process. Meaning it fuses two metals to form a singular hardened state. Fusion welding uses extreme heat to merge two or more metals at their melting point. The GMAW method often involves using a filler material. MIG welding feeds a constant consumable metal wire through the welding gun. The electrode reaches up to 6000 degrees Fahrenheit, thus welding the components together. Then, the consumable metal deposits into the base metal. These materials become a hardened state when they cool. GMAW is a highly reliable form of welding used for even the hardest metals.

MIG welding is a quick and reliable process, but don’t underestimate its skill level. MIG welding is suitable for various metals, including aluminum, copper, stainless steel, magnesium, and some steel, nickel, and iron properties. It is a versatile process available for different metal thicknesses. Also, the welding wand permits a preferred speed due to the continuous feed. When done correctly, professionals complete welding quickly and reliably. MIG welding provides a smooth tight weld.

TIG stands for tungsten inert gas and is another fusion welding technique. Similarly, GTAW methods see high-quality welding techniques used by highly trained welding technicians. The TIG welding approach uses a non-consumable Tungsten electrode, unlike MIG welding. It is one of the only forms of welding that can melt two metals together without filler metal. Yet, a filler wire, rod, or bar may be hand-fed on larger weld jobs to complete the weld.

The TIG welding method is suitable for almost all materials. With GTAW welding, a welding technician can weld as thin as 0.005-inch thick material. Hence TIG welding is ideal for many precision welding applications. A successful TIG weld has a clean appearance. Besides, GTAW welding has minor splatter and therefore does not require cleanup. Hence, the project moves quickly through to completion due to the absence of cleanup.

Keeping the Welding Project on Budget

In addition to welding, we offer many metal fabrication services. Some popular services include iron manufacturing, precision cutting & plasma cutting, surface treatments, and metal fabrication, among other things.

How does this all benefit you, our client?

Our volume production allows us to do large volumes of pieces quickly. Similarly, skilled artisans and automation further help to speed up production. Consequently, you experience reduced production time and lower costs. Therefore, when you consider how valuable time is, you get back to your client’s needs faster. Proform American Manufacturing is clearly an intelligent and cost-effective choice.

Precision welding with small parts.

Small parts require precision welding. MIG and TIG are precision welding methods often used in parts fabrication. For example, TIG welding yields precise welding manufacturing methods using metals as thin as 0.005-inch thick. Our skilled professionals know what process best suits your fabrication project. Not to worry, we have your precision parts task under control.

We often use flux cored arc welding or shielded metal arc welding for large-scale weldments. These two welding techniques are considered a more substantial welding process. For this reason, structural welding or heavy-duty equipment commonly uses FCAW and SMAW welding. We see these methods regularly used in industries like construction and large machining. Likewise, MIG welding is versatile in handling large metal fabrication projects in the transportation and manufacturing industries.
