GMAW (MIG), GTAW (TIG), Soldering
Performing aluminum, steel, copper, brass and stainless steel welding and soldering, we are a premier provider to several different commercial industries. With six different welding processes from which to choose, we feature cylindrical welding for tubing and pressure vessels, and can accommodate a wide range of welding requirements. o ensure optimal quality and reliability, we comply with regulations from AWS, ASME, and other relevant industry specifications.
Simply put, aerospace welding is any welding performed on a part or component meant for use in an aerospace application. Aerospace welding is distinct from standard welding in that specific standards and regulations must be adhered to.
Falcon follows requires strict adherence to AWS D1.1 and D17.1 and AS9100D standards. Set forth by the American Welding Society (AWS), AWS D17.1 outlines standards for welding processes, including material selection and methodology; AS9100D sets requirements for quality, quality management, and quality assurance.
We offer a range of metal forming services at Falcon, including a comprehensive selection of aerospace welding capabilities.
Our aerospace welding offerings include:
MIG Welding — Metal Inert Gas (MIG), or Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), is a welding method in which an electric arc forms between a consumable wire electrode and the workpieces, melting the workpieces and allowing them to join together. In addition to the wire electrode, a shielding gas feeds through the welding gun, protecting the process from contaminants in the air.
TIG Welding — Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG), or Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), is a welding method that uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to generate an electric arc to heat the workpieces. A filler metal, used in most TIG applications, is added into the weld pool as needed to help join materials. The weld area is protected from contamination in the air by an inert shielding gas.
Soldering — Soldering is the process of using heat to melt a solder material that join workpieces, fusing them as it cools and solidifies. This process differs from welding in that it uses heat, as opposed to electric arcs, and does not melt the workpieces in any way. It is typically used in electronic and other more delicate applications.
