We at FACO Metalltechnik offer you further processing in the form of welding according to the common methods MIG / MAG, TIG and plasma welding. We weld various stainless steels, also in acid and heat resistant qualities, as well as different steels and also aluminum with these procedures.
To ensure that our stainless steel remains rust-free, the welding and processing of different materials takes place in different areas of the hall. Our semi-finished products are separated into ferritic (black steel) and austenitic (stainless steel) products both in the warehouse and in production.
All members of our welding team have the necessary training and welding certificates. The production is managed and supervised by the welding supervisor in the person of our production manager. The equipment of our welding team includes several 3D welding tables as well as stationary and mobile welding fume extraction systems.
If desired, the cleaning and pickling of welding seams is also included in the scope of delivery at FACO.
Overview of welding techniques
Welding of steels in the area of medium and heavy plates
Fine welding seams for decorative use
|Fine welding seams||Decorative materials|
|Less welding fumes||Aluminium|
|minimal welding splashes|
Thin stainless steel sheets from 0.5 mm to 1.0 mm, complex constructions or thin-walled containers
|low warping||Thin stainless steel metal sheets|
- Although TIG welding is slower than MIG / MAG welding, it is particularly effective with clean and fine welding seams .
Area of application:
- We use the procedure when we move in the decorative field or when by our customers very fine, clean welds are required.
- The TIG welding process produces minimal spatter through the use of a tungsten electrode and low production of welding fume. Nonetheless, we naturally use welding fume extractors in all workplaces.
- Another advantage of the TIG welding process is that the electrode does not melt during welding.
Modes of operation:
- The TIG welding machine uses a tungsten electrode to melt the underlying workpiece and filler material, thereby joining several metal parts together.
From the ceramic nozzle of the TIG welding machine flows a protective gas, which surrounds the arc and the melt (the weld pool) like a bell, thus protecting it against the gases of the air - primarily oxygen.
As a rule, the inert gas argon is used in TIG welding.
Since the purity of the gas has a very high influence on the result, we always ensure that there is no draft in TIG welding.
- For the welding of aluminum we use the so-called pulse welding process. In this case, a high-frequency pulse is applied to the tungsten electrode. Our welding machines have comfortable adjustment options. Thus, in addition to the ignition of the arc, the current, the gas supply and much more can be set and the device can also be switched to DC or AC.
MIG / MAG welding is the so-called arc welding process using inert (MIG) and active (MAG) gases.
Area of application:
MIG / MAG welding is the so-called arc welding process, which is generally used for welding steels in the area of medium and heavy plates. We also have various systems available for MIG / MAG welding.
Due to the fast welding speed, only very small deformations of the material can be expected even in difficult positions.
The MIG and MAG welding processes use protective gases that are either inert (MIG) or active (MAG). MIG and MAG welding processes each work with a melting wire electrode, a solid or cored wire and a protective gas. In the MIG welding process, inert gases such as argon, helium or their mixtures are used. MAG welding with active gases, on the other hand, is divided once more into the MAGC process with carbon dioxide and the MAGM process with a mixture of argon with carbon dioxide and / or oxygen. To increase productivity, argon is often replaced by helium.
