Materials Used

Different project types require different materials, our Temecula fabrication facility is well-versed in all different metals. Aluminum, Stainless, Cast Iron, Ferrous & Non-Ferrous metals.

Stainless Steel

In metallurgy, stainless steel, also known as inox steel or inox from French inoxydable (inoxidizable), is a steel alloy with a minimum of 10.5% chromium content by mass.
Stainless steel is notable for its corrosion resistance, and it is widely used for food handling and cutlery among many other applications.

Stainless steel does not readily corrode, rust or stain with water as ordinary steel does. However, it is not fully stain-proof in low-oxygen, high-salinity, or poor air-circulation environments.

There are various grades and surface finishes of stainless steel to suit the environment the alloy must endure. Stainless steel is used where both the properties of steel and corrosion resistance are required.

Stainless steel is also strong and works great on both residential and commercial components because of its attractive appearance and durability. We often make products from scratch using this material due to its versatility.

Of course, steel doesn’t work in every situation, especially for more delicate jobs. Our team has experience welding pipe, should you require a custom drainage solution, and sheet metal, which is perfect when installing a new roof on a warehouse.

Ornamental iron is often used when working with fences and gates because it allows us to easily customize or brand items in a way that our customers appreciate. The same can be said for cast metal metal applications because it makes it possible for us to shape the metal to the customer’s exact specifications.

Our expert welders know how to use these materials and more, ensuring that your custom welding job goes according to plan and that you end up with the product that you had envisioned.

Aluminum

Aluminium or aluminum is a chemical element with symbol Al and atomic number 13. It is a silvery-white, soft, nonmagnetic, ductile metal in the boron group. By mass, aluminium makes up about 8% of the Earth’s crust; it is the third most abundant element after oxygen and silicon and the most abundant metal in the crust, though it is less common in the mantle below. Aluminium metal is so chemically reactive that native specimens are rare and limited to extreme reducing environments. Instead, it is found combined in over 270 different minerals.

Welding Processes

Naturally, there are a number of different welding processes that are used when repairing or fabricating metals. JS Welding & Fabrication offers certified welding in the shop or field to handle your specific needs.

SMAW, Shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), also known as manual metal arc welding (MMA or MMAW), flux shielded arc welding or informally as stick welding, is a manual arc welding process that uses a consumable electrode covered with a flux to lay the weld.

An electric current, in the form of either alternating current or direct current from a welding power supply, is used to form an electric arc between the electrode and the metals to be joined. The work piece and the electrode melts forming a pool of molten metal (weld pool) that cools to form a joint. As the weld is laid, the flux coating of the electrode disintegrates, giving off vapors that serve as a shielding gas and providing a layer of slag, both of which protect the weld area from atmospheric contamination.

GMAW, Gas metal arc welding (GMAW), sometimes referred to by its sub-types metal inert gas (MIG) welding or metal active gas (MAG) welding, is a welding process in which an electric arc forms between a consumable wire electrode and the work piece metal(s), which heats the workpiece metal(s), causing them to melt and join.
Along with the wire electrode, a shielding gas feeds through the welding gun, which shields the process from contaminants in the air. The process can be semi-automatic or automatic. A constant voltage, direct current power source is most commonly used with GMAW, but constant current systems, as well as alternating current, can be used. There are four primary methods of metal transfer in GMAW, called globular, short-circuiting, spray, and pulsed-spray, each of which has distinct properties and corresponding advantages and limitations.

FCAW, Flux-cored arc welding (FCAW or FCA) is a semi-automatic or automatic arc welding process. FCAW requires a continuously-fed consumable tubular electrode containing a flux and a constant-voltage or, less commonly, a constant-current welding power supply. An externally supplied shielding gas is sometimes used, but often the flux itself is relied upon to generate the necessary protection from the atmosphere, producing both gaseous protection and liquid slag protecting the weld. The process is widely used in construction because of its high welding speed and portability..

GTAW, Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), also known as tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding, is an arc welding process that uses a nonconsumable tungsten electrode to produce the weld. The weld area and electrode is protected from oxidation or other atmospheric contamination by an inert shielding gas (argon or helium), and a filler metal is normally used, though some welds, known as autogenous welds, do not require it. A constant-current welding power supply produces electrical energy, which is conducted across the arc through a column of highly ionized gas and metal vapors known as a plasma.

The fact that we use so many different welding techniques and have access to a variety of materials means that we’ll always be able to provide you with the exact service that you had envisioned.

Our expert welders know exactly what type of weld is needed on your project and since we have all of the necessary equipment in our shop, there is no reason to wait.
