Stainless steel is a versatile metal with a wide range of applications. It is lightweight, strong, and corrosion-resistant, making it ideal for various industries. One of the biggest advantages of TIG welding is that it produces a strong, durable weld joint that is aesthetically pleasing. TIG welding produces clean, controlled, beautiful welds. Stainless steel is a relatively soft metal, so it can be difficult to join using traditional methods like riveting or bolting. Using TIG welding, on the other hand, creates a solid, seamless bond that is highly resistant to fatigue and corrosion.
Due to its versatility, stainless steel is ideal for clean rooms. Pro-Fab offers an electropolished finish, making hygienic clean room products that are easy to clean and resistant to bacterial growth. This makes our products ideal for applications where these properties are important, such as in semiconductor manufacturing, as well as medical and pharmaceutical lab equipment.
Additional Benefits of Stainless Steel Welding:
- Stainless steel is a recyclable metal, so welding it helps to reduce waste.
- Stainless steel welding is a relatively low-cost process.
- Stainless steel welds are typically smooth and aesthetically pleasing.
There are several finishing options available for stainless steel. The most common finish is electropolish, which protects both the metal and the weld from corrosion, and leaves a smooth, shiny surface. Other finishes include powder coating and brushed finish. The best finishing option for a particular project will depend on the specific requirements. Whether you need an adjustable height workstation, rolling ladders, stairs, platforms, or clean room transport carts, Pro-Fab has a solution for you.
What is Tungsten Inert Gas Welding?
