We specialize in Stainless Steel Welding, fabrication and repair, with 20 years of welding experience in the food processing industry.
We have years of experience welding stainless steel and items such as stainless steel tubing, plant equipment, production machinery, stainless steel appliances and kitchen repair. We can weld stainless steel on-site, completing plant repairs and installation, commercial kitchen repair, kitchen equipment repair, and kitchen appliance repair. We employ certified welders that know how to weld stainless steel using multiple processes such as tig welding stainless steel, and mig welding stainless steel.
Changing from carbon steel to welding stainless steel is much more complicated than with stick welding because it usually involves changing shielding gas as well as the spool of wire. The good thing about mig is that it is quick and there is no slag to clean. It lends itself well for fabrication because of this and because it allows tack welding with one hand so the other hand is free to help position the parts to be tack welded. There are a couple of different choices for shielding gas if you need to weld stainless steel with MIG. On is called tri mix and is 90 helium 7.5 argon and 2.5 c02.The other is 98 percent argon and 2 percent oxygen. It really depends on what thickness and what position you will be welding in.
TIG welding is used extensively for pipe welding, aerospace, aviation, biomedical implants, fabrication of race cars, choppers, etc. It is much more precise and cleaner than mig welding or stick welding and definitely the coolest. Carbon steel and other metals as thin as razor blades can be welded. Outdoor windy conditions matter a lot and portable wind shields are a must if welding outside. Most TIG welding is done in shops and indoors. It is one of the most versatile types of welding there is because virtually any type of metal can be welded with a few exceptions.
A few tips for welding stainless steel
Always use a stainless steel wire brush…there is a certain temperature where stainless steel heat tint will brush off easily and completely. You can tell when the metal is at that “sweet spot” by running the wire brush over the weld at an angle. When you feel the wire bristles kind of drag over the weld like they are digging in a bit. That is when you wire brush the weld. You will be surprised at how much shinier that weld area is than waiting for the weld to cool completely or brushing when it’s too hot. Try it sometime.TIG Welding stainless steel to any other steel?
