Spot Welding Sheet Metal
Here at JC Metalworks, we employ a highly-skilled and experienced team of metal welders and fabricators with the skills and capability to carry out spot welding and seam welding in high volumes, techniques that are widely used in the metal welding and fabrication industry.
Typically, spot welding is used where metal sheets of stainless steel or aluminium are in the 0.5 – 3mm thickness range. The process uses two shaped copper alloy electrodes to concentrate welding current into a small ‘spot’ and to simultaneously clamp the sheets together. Forcing a large current through the ‘spot’ will melt the metal and form the weld.
The attractive feature of spot welding is that a lot of energy can be delivered to the spot in a very short time (10 – 100 milliseconds). This allows the welding to occur without excessive heating to the remainder of the metal sheet.
You’ll be pleased to hear that we have recently carried out and completed a programme of investment and improvement within our welding bay area which has resulted in an increase of 20% to our welding capacity.
We have also upgraded the extraction system that runs through each of our metal welding bays, giving our metal welders and fabricators a safe working environment and the facilities they need to carry out the quality work they do each and every day.
So whether you have a need for spot welding stainless steel or spot welding aluminium we can provide you with the capacity, skills and techniques to produce your finished, fabricated product to the highest standards economically and safely.
