Weld­ing

Many dif­fer­ent join­ing tech­niques are used in metal pro­cess­ing, with weld­ing cer­tainly being one of the most important.

For exam­ple, SwissFactory.Group AG is able to carry out var­i­ous types of weld­ing at its part­ner com­pany EGRO. Depend­ing on the appli­ca­tion, raw mate­r­ial, sta­tic require­ments, quan­ti­ties and design require­ments, we select the opti­mum weld­ing process.

  • Laser weld­ing
  • Metal active gas (MAG) welding
  • Metal inert gas (MIG) welding
  • Tung­sten Inert Gas (TIG) or Tung­sten Inert Gas (TIG) welding)
  • Plasma weld­ing
  • Micro plasma welding
  • Spot weld­ing (resis­tance pres­sure welding)
  • Threaded bolt and nut welding
  • Lon­gi­tu­di­nal weld­ing machine (WIG / TIG)
  • Auto­matic cir­cu­lar weld­ing machine orbital (WIG / TIG)
  • Robot weld­ing (MIG / MAG, WIG / TIG)

In par­tic­u­lar, weld­ing with our weld­ing robot pro­vides excel­lent ser­vices when it comes to pro­cess­ing large quan­ti­ties in a short time or when there are high-qual­ity require­ments. Our robots are capa­ble of both MIG / MAG weld­ing for thicker sheets and fast weld­ing with low heat input. With the TIG / WIG process, we weld fine sheets auto­mat­i­cally in high pre­ci­sion and quality.

In the pro­duc­tion of con­tain­ers, auto­matic machines are often used. These welds quickly and with high qual­ity, the coats with the lon­gi­tu­di­nal weld­ing sys­tem, the bot­tom takes over the Orbital sys­tem. We thus achieve high-speed, high-qual­ity welds at low tool­ing costs. We also achieve a high degree of reproducibility.

And then there are always welds that can­not be auto­mated or where it is sim­ply not worth it. This is where our weld­ing spe­cial­ists (see cer­ti­fi­ca­tions) come into play. They have passed all weld­ing tests and are able to join any weld­able metal.

Laser pro­cess­ing of three-dimen­sional com­po­nents opens up new design pos­si­bil­i­ties. This allows mate­r­ial-sav­ing design and weight optimisation.

3D laser welding

In laser weld­ing, the energy is sup­plied by a laser. This weld­ing process allows join­ing with very high weld­ing speed, slim weld seam shape and low ther­mal dis­tor­tion. Laser weld­ing is usu­ally car­ried out with­out filler mate­r­ial, but our sys­tem offers the pos­si­bil­ity of weld­ing with filler as well.

In addi­tion, laser weld­ing sig­nif­i­cantly reduces the amount of rework required com­pared to con­ven­tional processes, which saves time and thus low­ers costs.
