We have a long history of development of welded aluminium products from a wide range of market sectors. The highly skilled and experienced aluminium welders are involved with the customer at the early stages of the design of new profiles or on established products to value engineer the process to meet customer requirements.
Welding makes it possible to make high quality, high strength welds at high speeds, in all positions, without corrosive fluxes
Hydro’s expertise in welded aluminium assemblies can be demonstrated across our industry. Whether it is MIG aluminium welding, TIG aluminium welding, Friction Stir Welding or CMT aluminium welding Hydro can offer the best solution for the project in house.
Hydro fabrication tailor Weld Procedure and Welder Approvals for Specific Customer Products and Welding services are carried out in accordance with BS EN 1011 parts 1 & 4.
When this is required we can carry out these Procedure Developments and obtain Procedure Approvals to BS EN 15614 -2 or BS EN 15613 ( Pre Production Parts ) and subsequently obtain Welder Approvals to BS 9606-2 to cover this work.
Hydro Fabrication have Welders Trained to Level 2 in Visual and Penetrant Inspection in accordance with BS EN ISO 9712 through British Institute of None Destructive Testing.
During the production stages the following standards can be applied following development and agreement with customers to meet their requirements:
Hydro are able to offer coded welding of aluminium from our Bedwas facility. Our welders become coded to your specific job requirements and produce samples that mirror your required exact welding configuration. The process by which we approve a coded welder is through a welder approval test and once complete our welder can produce coded welding to your specific ISO standard.
Hydro fabrication offer the following fusion welding services:
The capabilities of CMT welding are:
We currently supply aluminium welding in assemblies throughout the following industries:
