Metals & Materials
Join securely – prevent corrosion Welding stainless steel is a special challenge. To create clean seams and permanently stable connections with minimal risk of corrosion it is important first of all to determine the stainless steel exactly. After this, the welding method and the welding process must be exactly aligned to this. Welding is usually carried out with TIG, MIG, MAG and manual metal arc welding methods.
Long-lasting connections – outstanding visual appearance Aluminum is a lightweight and at the same time solid material that is used wherever stable components must not weigh very much. The material is used in alloys in aerospace, as well as in the construction of railway vehicle, motor vehicles and ships. TIG, plasma, MIG or even laser welding methods are used, depending on the specification and the thickness of the workpiece.
Numerous types – infinite possibilities Structural steel is a generic term used for various steels that are processed in the steel and machine engineering industries. The steel is available as rods, profiles, pipes and sheet metal in a number of thicknesses and dimensions. Structural steel is usually easy to weld, durable when handled and suitable for all conventional welding procedures.
Special properties – special applications Special materials have special properties and are suitable for special applications. There are highly durable, strong, light or resistant special materials for various requirements. These may be particularly resistant to chemical, thermal or mechanical loads. When selecting the right welding procedure for these materials it is important to know the precise material properties.
