Welding is a fundamental step in most of our productions. We have extensive experience and documented expertise in MIG/MAG and TIG welding in most materials.

Autofric performs precision welding of smaller parts with high demands on accuracy and precision. Equally common is the welding of heavier structures in materials such as steel, stainless steel, and aluminum.

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 produces a fast weld and rarely requires any lengthy post-processing. However, MIG/MAG welding is sensitive to rust and impurities, making 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 high weld quality, clean welds, and good surface roughness. The method is, therefore, often used in processes where quality requirements are high, but also for difficult-to-weld metals such as titanium, monel, and copper-nickel. However, the method has its largest area of application in the welding of stainless steel and light metals.

As natural final steps, finishing operations such as sanding and pickling are also carried out to achieve the highest quality products and finishes.

Several of our welders have a welding test certificate according to SS-EN ISO 9606-1:2017.
