Fabrication and welding

This division of our business is where we see the greatest project diversity.

At any given time we could have a wide range of job types going through our workshop, but we've been careful to structure the business so that we only work with materials that don't adversely effect each other - for example we no longer work with mild steel for the simple reason that grindings or sparks from a welder or grinder working with mild steel can seriously damage stainless steel if theycome in contact with each other.

If required we can tailor a procedure to individual customer needs using various combinations of welding processes and consumables.

The bulk of the welding performed in this division of the company is fairly light as most of the projects here are fabricated from materials up to 3mm thick, but the accreditation and extra welding tickets held by a number of our tradesmen allow us to safely work with materials up to 10mm thick. Our range of welding procedures complies with the applicable standards below:

• AS/NZS 1554.6-1994 - Structural steel welding / Welding stainless steels for structural purposes

• AS/NZS 3992-2015 - Pressure equipment - Welding and brazing qualification

• AS 2885.2-2007 - Pipelines - Gas and liquid petroleum welding

• ASME IX-2017 - Boiler and pressure vessel code - Qualification standard for welding and brazing procedures, welders, brazers, and welding and brazing operators

Workshop or on-site

While the majority of cutting, and certainly any folding or rolling of stainless material would likely be done in our workshop, our personnel are all used to working on jobsites, whether they're residential or commercial sites.

Welding joins in most stainless items can be performed without risk of damage to surrounding surfaces, and since TIG welding doesn't produce splatter the chance of damage from hot particles is extremely low. So L-shaped or U-shaped benchtops or other larger items are generally no problem, even if the dimensions are too big for transporting in one piece.
