In many cases, fixing equipment, machines, or structures is far less costly than purchasing new, especially in commercial, construction, transportation, excavation, earthmoving, landscape, warehousing, and equipment material handling industries. Repair is often the best option for owners of large equipment and massive machines.

Gas Metal Arc (GMAW)

MIG – metal inert gas – is generally used for large and thick materials and involves joining two metals with a filler metal. MIG welding is very common because it can be used for most metals. This technique is fast and more cost-efficient than higher-quality techniques like TIG.

Gas Tungsten Arc (GTAW)

TIG – Tungsten inert gas – is generally used to create finished products with sound, slag-free welds so the corrosion resistance is the same as the parent metal. TIG is also very common because it can be used for most metals. However, this technique is more common in aerospace, autobody repairs, and artisan/sculptures because of the high level of control for detailed designs or curves.

Shielded Metal Arc (SMAW)

Like MIG/TIG welding, Stick can be used almost universally on metals such as iron, steel, aluminum, nickel, and copper alloys. It’s one of the first methods learned because of its easy handling, low prep time, low noise, and low procurement costs. We use best-in-industry machines to reduce spatter and porosity but will opt for a different technique when visual aesthetics is important.

Flux-Cored Arc (FCAW)

This is one of our favorite methods for outdoor and mobile projects on carbon steels, cast iron, and stainless steel. It’s also great for thicker metals. Flux-Cored Arc allows for efficient application of the filler metal without compromising high-quality welds. This technique cannot be used on more exotic nonferrous metals like aluminum.


Unlike other techniques that melt the base metals, brazing doesn’t. Brazing is a technique by which we join two metals by a bond between them. It uses a lower temperate that is applied broadly to the metals, then a filler metal is applied between them to form a very strong bond. We may use this technique when joining different metal types. Brazed joints also form a smooth line – favorable in appearance – unlike the weld line with other techniques.

Thank you for your continued business

Was able to get me scheduled quickly, showed up on time (actually a little early), and got the little small job I had done in a workmanlike manner.
