Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding is a process we are highly skilled in at ADS Laser Cutting, which is typically used on jobs requiring thicker materials across aluminium, stainless steel and Mild Steel.
Through years of collective experience, our team of metal welders and fabricators are highly skilled in the areas of MIG, TIG and spot welding. Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding is a technique commonly deployed in the sheet metal fabrication industry.
MIG welding works by using a mix of electricity, an electrical arc between an electrode wire, a parent metal and a shielding gas. The electrical arc melts the electrode wire to create a weld pool, which when cooled solidifies to form a piece of fused metal. During this process, the shielding gas is used to protect the weld pool from atmospheric gases which risk weakening the weld.
MIG welding is incredibly diverse, as it is capable of being used on a number of metals from aluminium to carbon steel. While also being able to weld much thicker metals than other methods of welding.
We have recently invested in a new site, which is four times bigger than our previous building. All processes have been consolidated under one roof.
Our Fox’s site, based in Leicester, has allowed us to double the amount of welding bays we have. Due to the sheer size of the fabrication bay, if required we can work on extremely large fabrication projects.
As part of the redevelopment of the Fox’s site, our team’s working conditions were at the forefront of our minds. Our new extraction systems are far more state-of-the-art than our previous systems, with full-at-source fume extractions and digital flow detectors to provide our welders with a cleaner and safer working environment.
Our newly acquired and re-developed Fox’s site provides us with 87,000 square feet of manufacturing capabilities. This is across laser cutting, forming, fabrication, powder coating and assembly, before delivering your finished project anywhere in the UK.
We have a team of coded welders who are regularly assessed and are approved to BS EN ISO standards. Our team is capable of MIG welding metals such as mild steel and stainless steel, but also metals which are often deemed difficult to weld such as aluminium.
