Special Metals – Welding Services
About Our Welding Services
The history behind Special Metals reaches far back to the early 20th century and the welding services we provide are executed with the upmost professionalism and quality assurances. We have two specialist welding chambers within which we utilize specialist and advanced TIG welders, namely; the Miller Syncrowave. The Miller Syncrowave welder is excellent for welding refractory materials within highly controlled atmospheres. A lot of the refractory materials we deal with cannot be welded in a normal environment due to being highly susceptible to oxidization and our vacuum chambers are designed to adjust Oxygen levels accordingly. A large part of our business is to weld manufactured products that we make from supplied design drawings and then supply to clients, but we are increasingly dealing with ‘weld-only’ orders as our welding quality has become respected industry wide. Welding is a crucial stage of any project and we take pride in our vast experience with all sizes of completed projects which, in turn, has increased our awareness of the absolute accuracy levels required for the perfect finished product.
The Materials We Work With
We take great pride in the work we do and always strive to provide the very best in finished products. We concentrate on being among the best in the industry for the services we offer and maintain standards at all times. Our areas of specialisation, in terms of the specialist metals we handle, are the following refractory materials;
It is worth noting that we are not just limited to handling the above materials and will gladly weld any free-issue materials that you require. Our expert onsite welders work with efficiency and to tight deadlines to ensure that the welding stage of your project is never the weakest link. Consequently, we offer a ‘weld and next day delivery’ where your welding is carried out today and delivered tomorrow.
Welding tantalum can be very complex compared with the other materials we deal with as it has specific properties which can lead to damage if not correctly handled. Many welding companies rely on experience and on-the-job training alone as the route to achieving excellence with specialist materials handling such as tantalum, but we at Smart Metals feel different about excellence. We trust our team of experts but also want to support their/our development proactively. Our experienced welders have been fully trained and coded (qualified) to handle tantalum.
