Welding Capabilities

Custom steel fabrications, welding, and machining services in carbon steel, sheet metal, stainless steel, and non-ferrous metals are the specialty of Jet Fabricators.

Over the years, industrial welding has undergone many changes. Today, there are a wide variety of welding machines on the market. As the tools welders use have become more varied the techniques utilized in conjunction with them have become increasingly diverse. Here are a few of the most common methods for industrial welding:

  • Arc welding is the most basic industrial welding technique. It uses a constant source of alternating or direct current to produce a high energy weld. Arc welding methods can be applied to heavy metals and are ideal for repair works and fabrication of steel structures.

  • MIG welding is a sub-type of gas metal arc welding wherein an electric arc forms between the metal being welded and the heat source/electrode. The heat generated causes the metal to melt, fusing it with the electrode. The inert gas that flows through the welding gun (typical carbon dioxide) shields the weld from contaminants. Direct and alternating currents are used to weld and can fuse carbon steel, stainless steel, aluminum,magnesium, copper, nickel, silicon bronze and other alloys.

  • Tungsten inert gas or TIG welding is a subtype of gas tungsten arc brazing. Tungsten is used as the conducting electrode in the soldering gun which is an integral part of this process. Metal vapors and highly ionized inert gases create an arc that is protected from contamination by the inert gas. TIG is slower than other processes and is a more focused form of industrial welding. It yields higher quality and stronger welds. Additionally, it gives a superior finish with little cleaning up by sanding or grinding. More metals such as magnesium, copper alloys, aluminum, and steel can be welded with TIG welding.

  • Spot welding, seam-welding, heli-arc welding machines, manual-arc welding, and submerged-arc with automatic feed
  • Acetylene and brazing equipment
