Welding & Fabrication

Sheet metal welding, both ferrous and non-ferrous, requires a high degree of skill and dexterity to produce clean, smooth, and visually appealing welds, consistently and to our customer’s specification. At Bespoke Fabrications we have many years of experience, together with the latest welding technology designed to produce customer products to the highest standards.

Welding is a fabrication process of joining together two pieces of metal by applying extreme heat which melts one or both pieces, causing fusion between the two. Welding can be further broken down into different techniques, depending on the requirements and application of the product.

MIG (Metal Inert Gas) welding is a welding process whereby a consumable wire electrode is continuously fed through a welding gun and an electric arc is formed between the wire and the metal workpiece. This high temperature arc causes the metal to melt and fuse. Around this electrode, a gas is applied to shield the weld area and remove any air, helping the weld to fuse. MIG welding has the advantage of being fast and cost effective, and by that it is often used on almost any metal.

TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding is the process of using a non-consumable Tungsten electrode to deliver a current to the welding arc. This current causes extreme heat which melts and fuses the metal workpiece(s). The Tungsten electrode and weld area are shielded from air by a flow of inert gas (usually Argon) This helps the weld to fuse.

Within our state-of-the-art, 57,480 sq. ft facility we have dedicated MIG & TIG welding stations that are flexible enough to handle small and large components alike. In addition, we have spot welding facilities along with our finishing station, with full table extraction so welds can be dressed or flushed off prior to final coatings.
