It takes years of experience and a lot of skill to become a leading stainless steel TIG welding company which offers much more than a high-quality welding service. Many of these companies specialise in just welding, however there are a few companies that not only offer exceptional quality welding of stainless steel but are also able to deliver that high standard across a range of steel fabrication services.
These companies, offering a one-stop-shop for all your fabrication needs, will deliver first-class stainless steel fabrications whatever the size and scale of your product, from a small batch of screws to large assemblies up to 5 tonnes.
What is a stainless steel TIG welding company?
A high-class stainless steel TIG welding company is one that will not only offer a range of welding processes including MIG and spot welding, but will also have specialist personnel who are trained in the intricate and difficult discipline of TIG and other welding services.
What is TIG welding?
TIG welding (or Gas Tungsten Arc Welding – GTAW) is often used for welding joints where precise, neat, small welds are needed. It is a manual process where the operator uses a tungsten electrode to produce the weld in conjunction with a separate filler material. An inert or semi-inert gas is used to protect the weld from contamination.
Although one of the most difficult of welding techniques, TIG gives the best quality weld for stainless steel compared to other methods. It also gives a far stronger weld than other approaches!
Do TIG welders need to have any qualifications?
A stainless steel welding company will provide on-the-job training for its welders as it takes years of experience in working on all types of fabrications to make an exceptional welder. Many companies will ensure that their welders are professionally trained and hold coded welder certification. This means that the welder has taken an exam in a particular welding method such as TIG welding.
This certification ensures that a company’s welding quality and productivity is of the highest quality, as well as complying with European standards for welding competence.
