Welding & Precision Fabrication
As a complementary service we are pleased to be able to provide a full in-house sheet metal assembly and precision fabrication service.
- CNC folding
- MIG and TIG coded welding operations
- Fitting and Assembly
All combine to support our aim to offer as full a service as possible in pursuit of Single source manufacturing, reduces lead times, retains a single control point and results in lower unit costs per finished part. We have skills to undertake complex precision fabrications to the highest standards.
Carlton Laser Services Limited have extensive experience in Metal Inert Gas (MIG) and Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding.
MIG welds are created with a consumable electrode, while TIG welds are created with a non-consumable electrode. TIG welding typically includes filler metal as well.
The benefits of MIG Welding are:
- All position capability
- Higher deposition rates than Shielded Metal Arc Welding
- Long welds can be made without starts and stops
- Minimal post weld cleaning is required
TIG has become a popular choice of welding processes when high quality, precision welding is required.
The benefits of TIG welding are:
- Superior quality weld
- The welds can be made with or without filler metal
- Precise control of welding variable such as heat
- Spatter free
- Low distortion
We would welcome the opportunity to show you exactly how you could reduce your sub-contracting costs and lead times.
