Welding is the art of heating metal to the melting point and then allowing parts of the metal and filler metal to flow together. Welding is a diverse technology, and there are 94 different welding and allied processes.
Advantage Fabricated Metals' welding staff has decades of complex welding experience. Our skilled welding staff provides a full range of welding services. We can provide welding services ranging from structural and plate welding to light gauge tubular steels, stainless, and aluminum.
Specifically we offer the following welding types:
Additionally, we provide robotic welding services.
No. However, our weld procedures are all qualified through over thirty years of practical application and testing. If your particular project does require a welder certification our Welders have the expertise and knowledge to obtain the certification required.
Every welding job's requirements are different, but Advantage Fabricated Metals’ welders often grind the welds, polish the welds, descale the welds, prepare the welded surfaces for painting, and prime the prepared surface after the welding process is completed all based on individual customer requirements.
Robotic welding is the use of mechanized programmable robots which completely automates a welding process by both performing the weld and handling of the component. Robotic welding is commonly used for resistance spot welding and arc welding in high production applications, such as the automotive industry and high volume manufacturing.
Yes we do. Advantage Fabricated Metals provides robotic MIG welding using a machine with a 55-inch reach. Our management and welding staff understand the special requirements of robot cells in welding environments such as parts design, part and gap tolerances, fixture design, weld process expertise, and the quality of the operating programs. Our cell is equipped to execute most MIG, TIG, Cold Wire TIG, and Fluxcore welding applications and has an integrated rotary positioning station.
We provide welding services for both common and more exotic metals. Our welders have years of experience working with the materials listed below.
If your project requires a different material that is not listed above, please give us a call and we will work with you towards a welding solution.
Advantage Fabricated Metals offers a number of welding-related services including:
Hardfacing, which is also known as hardsurfacing, is the application of buildup, or wear-resistant, weld metals to a part's or component's surface by means of welding or joining. Hardfacing provides a continuous nonporous wear and or impact resistant surface.
We visually inspect all of our welded components for size and quality of the weld deposit. When required, we can additionally provide Dye Penetrant, Magnaflux, and Radiograph inspection to meet a customer's requirements.
That's a hard question to provide a direct answer for. It depends on what exactly needs to be done to the piece and if the piece needs to be preheated. However, we do have 20-ton overhead cranes to move pieces around our facility.
We offer the ability to produce prototypes and samples depending on the individual situation. It helps if drawings are available. However, we are capable of performing some R&D and developing a needed prototype.
We can work with the most common CAD file types including DXF, DFX, and DWG files.
That really depends on a number of factors. The thickness we can weld is dependant on the type of joint, the configuration of the base material and the actual welding process we need to use.
