Welding


Welding is a fundamental element in most of our production processes. We have extensive experience and documented expertise in MIG, MAG and TIG welding in most materials.

Autofric performs precision welding of small details with high demands for accuracy and precision. Equally common is welding of heavier structures in materials such as steel, stainless steel and aluminium.

The choice of welding method is determined by the application requirements.

MIG/MAG welding

MIG/MAG welding uses inert gas (MIG) or active gas (MAG) as shielding gas for the weld between two workpieces.

The method provides a quick weld and rarely requires any longer finishing. MIG/MAG welding is also sensitive to rust and impurities, which makes it less suitable for outdoor work.

At Autofric, MIG/MAG welding is used mainly for stainless steel but also for other alloyed materials.

TIG welding

TIG welding provides a high welding quality, clean weld metal and good surface evenness. The method is therefore often used in machining, where the quality requirements are high, but also for hard-to-weld metals such as titanium, monel and copper-nickel. The method’s largest area of application, however, is for welding stainless steel and light metals.

As natural final steps, finishing work such as grinding and pickling is also carried out to achieve products of the highest quality and finish.

The majority of our welders have a welder test certificate according to SS-EN ISO 9606-1:2017.
