Welding is crucial in sheet metal manufacturing, combining components to create durable and structurally sound products. At Avon Lake Sheet Metal, we prioritize the highest quality standards, including our welding processes. In this article, we’ll explore the most commonly used welding techniques in sheet metal manufacturing.

Common Types of Welds

  • MIG Welding:

One of the most commonly used welding techniques in sheet metal manufacturing is MIG (Metal Inert Gas) welding. MIG welding utilizes a wire electrode fed through a welding gun and melting to form a bond between the metal components. It offers versatility, high welding speeds, and good control over the weld pool, making it suitable for various sheet metal applications.

  • TIG Welding:

TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding is another popular technique employed in sheet metal manufacturing. TIG welding uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode and a separate filler material, providing precise control over the welding process. It produces clean and aesthetically pleasing welds, making it ideal for applications that require high-quality visible welds, such as architectural sheet metal work.
