Micro Welding Saves Project

CNC Machine ShopOne of our customers had a programmer that put in a bad number and the operator didn’t catch it in time and ended up gouging the outside of these 3 details.

This happens more often than you would think. We were able to micro weld the gouge with the same material as the base material.

Our customer was then able to machine this back to the original specifications and was unable to see the weld entirely after final machining and polishing! Call us for your next project!

Laser Welding Saves Bad Core Pins

Laser Welding Core PinsThis job came to us from a customer from Northern California. The customer was in great of need repairing some brand new core pins that were machined out of speck and would be scraped if we couldn’t save them.
It was a groove .010 wide on a tapper with a .008 radius at the bottom, it needed to be laser welded without any distortion to the part. 
This would represent a very difficult job for anyone in the laser welding industry – do to the length and diameter restrictions.
We ended up taking the job and were able to laser weld to fill the groove with out any voids in the product.
Laser Welding Core PinsThe customer was then able to grind the weld back to the existing diameter without any sink or distortion on all 6 parts required due to the consistency throughout our laser welding process.
We were able to service the customer with these requirements that allowed zero scrap and no need to remake – saving them a lot of time and money.

O.D. – I.D. Grinding

OD - ID Grinding, Pomona, Ca.O.D. – I.D. Grinding

Precision welding projects may sometimes include precision grinding work to meet the project specs.

Inside Diameter/Outside Diameter (ID/OD) universal grinders belong to the center type family of cylindrical grinding machines. The basic construction of a universal grinding machine is almost same as a plain grinding machine. However, some advanced features and auxiliary attachments make the first one suitable to execute more universal machining processes.

The principle difference between these two types of cylindrical grinding machines is this: Both the wheel head and work head can be swiveled in universal type grinders, where plain grinders don’t offer this feature.

Universal grinders are generally classified into two types regardless of their applications: Inside diameter (ID) and outside diameter (OD) universal grinders. The grinding that occurs on the external faces or outside diameters of an object is frequently called OD grinding. This is done by the periphery of the grinding wheel. On the other hand, ID grinding systems are used to grind the inside diameter of an object.

Universal grinders are best suited for tool room applications because of their very high versatility. These machines can execute face, internal, and surface grinding. This includes tapered surface grinding using auxiliary attachments.

Applications for Micro TIG Welding

Micro TIG (micro tungsten inert gas) welding , also called pulse arc welding, is an arc-welding process that uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to produce an arc which creates the actual weld.

Micro TIG welding is a non-contact process, which, like laser welding, requires an external fixture to apply force to create proper part fit-up. It utilizes a welding power supply with a constant current and produces high quality welds with minimal heat affected zones by generating arcs between the workpiece and the tungsten electrode, and using the resultant heat to actually create the joint.

Micro TIG processes usually focus on welding very small parts of area. These are usually delicate parts in the automotive, medical, or electronics industry. 

There are many advantages to Micro TIG welding. For example, it’s a solder-free process and the resultant weld is highly durable when exposed to vibration and heat.

This type of welding is commonly used for Medical, Military, Space, and consumer products like Surgery equipment, Ocular products, high performance products and other markets.
