Industrial Welding - Key Processes Explained

There are several methods of industrial welding. These include:

Gas Fusion Welding 

This is primarily used for welding cast iron. It uses a welding process that melts the core metals at the join. The original part is throughly cleaned, prepared and welded using a gas fusion welding rig with the addition of a flux. The flux protects the metal from contamination. The final weld will be equally as strong as the original metal and, once cl;eaned, is virtually invisible. 

Metal Stitching

Metal stitching is a process using a metal pin and lock to repair a crack or break. The main benefit of metal stitching is being able to undertake the repair in situ. This is a major benefit for machinary on ships and oil platforms.

The main component of metal stitching is the stitching pin. These pins have evolved over many years from simple threaded bolts through tapered pins to the highly sophisticated threaded fasteners available today.

The other key element is locks. They are primarily used in industrial repairs.

Locks have also evolved over the years and have been created in many shapes, sizes and strengths.

Industrial Welding

Derby lies on the banks of the River Derwent in the East Midlands. Derby and Derbyshire were centres of Britain’s industrial revolution, which in the 18th century saw many cotton spinning mills being opened. The beginning of the following century saw Derby emerge as an engineering centre, with manufacturers such as James Fox, who exported machine tools to Russia.

This tradition has continued, with Derby’s two biggest employers being Rolls-Royce and the Toyota Motor Corporation both being in the engineering manufacturing trade. Other companies include Bombardier, who manufacture train systems and aircraft, and Alstom, who manufacture large power plant boilers and heat exchangers.

Derby’s central location means it has extensive transport links with other areas of the country, the M1 motorway passes ten miles to the east of the city linking south to London and north to Sheffield and Leeds. East Midlands Airport is situated about fifteen miles from Derby, with services to a variety of internal and European destinations.
