ProtoSpace offers full-service (non-structural only) welding capabilities within our base leadtime of 2-3 days, with no minimum order required.
We use two welding processes: fiber laser welding and cold-metal transfer welding (a more controlled derivative of wire-fed MIG welding).
|Seam Welding||Continuously joining two or more pieces of sheet metal so that they appear seamless|
|Spot Welding||Permanently join two pieces of metal in one or more spots, leaving little trace of the joint|
|Tack Welding||Performed in the same manner as seam welding, but in discrete segments. Typically used for positioning and securing metals for welding|
|Plug Welding||Round weld or slot that is made inside of an existing cutout, creating a stronger and more durable hold|
|Fillet Welding||Joining two pieces of metal together that are perpendicular or at an angle (often used for connecting flanges, welding cross sections, etc)|
|Minimum Material Thickness|
Steel – 20 Gage (0.036” | 0.91mm)
Stainless Steel – 20 Gage (0.038” | 0.95mm)
Galvanneal - 20 Gage (0.040” | 1.01mm)
Aluminum – 14 Gage (0.064” | 1.63mm)
We believe the onboarding process should be as simple and hassle-free as possible.
Our team can process all of your paperwork to get the ball rolling in order to serve your custom manufacturing needs.
