Welding at FACO-Metalltechnik

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.
Damit unser Edelstahl dann auch tatsächlich rostfrei bleibt findet das Schweißen und Verarbeiten unterschiedlicher Werkstoffe in verschiedenen Hallenbereichten statt. Unsere Halbzeuge werden sowohl im Lager als auch in der Fertigung sind nach ferritischen (Schwarzstahl) und austenitischen (Edelstahl) Produkten getrennt.
Alle Mitarbeiter unseres Schweißerteams verfügen über die erforderlichen Ausbildungen und Schweißerscheine. Die Fertigung wird durch die Schweißaufsicht in Person unseres Fertigungsleiters geleitet und überwacht. Zur Ausrüstung unseres Schweißerteams gehören neben den Schweißanlagen mehrere 3D-Schweißtische sowie stationäre und mobile Schweißrauchabsaugungen.
Wenn gewünscht gehört auch das Reinigen und Beizen der Schweißnähte bei FACO zum Lieferumfang.

TIG welding

Description

  • 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.

Advantages:

  • 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.

Plasma-welding

Description

Plasma welding is used because of the low deformation of the material, especially in the processing of thin-walled stainless steels.

Area of application:

We use this process to weld thin stainless steel sheets in the range of 0.5 mm to 1.0 mm and as soon as complex constructions or thin-walled containers are to be welded.

Advantages:

The plasma welding leads during work to little distortion on the material.

Functionality:

In plasma welding, the welding arc or main arc burns between the tungsten electrode and the workpiece just as with TIG welding. In addition, between the tungsten electrode and an intensely water-cooled nozzle burns a so-called "pilot arc" with a current of 3 - 30 A. Between the electrode and the nozzle in addition a plasma gas, usually argon, passed.

MIG / MAG welding

Description

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.

Advantages:

Due to the fast welding speed, only very small deformations of the material can be expected even in difficult positions.

Functionality:

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.

Stud welding

Arc stud welding ("stud welding") is suitable as a particularly economical welding method for joining pin-shaped metal parts such as welding studs or threaded studs with metallic workpieces such as metal sheets, profiles and pipes.
Here at FACO we work with different stud welding systems of different makes. For mass production, we usually create devices to manufacture the products accurately, quickly and efficiently for our customers.
