Welding has long been a core element of Excels production cycle. Modern spot welding machines complement five welding bays, each with the latest equipment and staff that have proven themselves capable enough to meet our high standards. As well as mild steel, we regularly weld non-ferrous material such as stainless steel, aluminium, and we can even braze brass.
Below, is an outline of the main welding systems we use:
MIG welding is an automatic or semi-automatic process in which a wire connected to a source of direct current acts as an electrode joining two pieces of metal, as it is continuously passed through a welding gun. A flow of an inert gas is also passed through the gun at the same time as the wire electrode. This inert gas acts as a shield, keeping air borne contaminants away from the weld zone.
During the process of TIG welding, an arc is formed between a pointed tungsten electrode and the area to be welded. As a result of the gas shield, a clean weld is formed. This prevents oxidization from occurring.
