Automated Thin Aluminum Welding Systems
Parts constructed of thin aluminum or aluminum extrusion bring many benefits; they are cost-effective, they are lightweight and they have great corrosion resistance. Despite these benefits, these parts bring a unique and difficult production problem, thin aluminum is notoriously difficult to weld without running into burn-through, stress cracking or poor weld strength challenges. Additionally, aluminum filler wire presents another challenge, it is more prone to causing jams in the wire feeder in comparison to steel filler wire.
MESH has expertise in thin aluminum welding. MESH’s solutions are highly reliable while still achieving reduced burn-through, increased weld aesthetics and eliminating stress cracking, while still maintaining high welding speeds.
MESH Solutions for Thin Aluminum Welding
MESH can provide solutions for a wide variety of extrusions, incoming part variability, production requirements and quality requirements. MESH works with a wide variety of robots, welding power sources, vision and sensing products (seam finders, 2D and 3D vision, advanced analog sensors) and filler material suppliers that allow us to handle even the most complex project. Additionally, because MESH manufactures all fixtures in house, MESH can produce advanced fixtures to reduce burn-through and stress cracking on aluminum parts.
Whether you need a solution to produce general structural welds or welds that appear like TIG welds and have no spatter, MESH is your one-stop automation firm.
