Welding is a form of fabrication that adheres elements, usually metals or thermoplastics, by causing fusion. Along with the base metal, a filler material is supplemented for joints. It forms a pool of molten substances (the weld pool) which forms a joint that can be as strong as the base material.
Welding has taken many forms for different industries. Lindsay Machine Works, Inc uses:
4 (GMAW) Gas metal arc welding ,
also known as sub-type (MIG) metal inert gas welding or
(MAG) metal active gas welding
3 (GTAW) Gas tungsten arc welding, also known as
(TIG) tungsten inert gas welding,
3 (SMAW) Shielded metal arc welding , also known as
(MMA or MMAW) manual metal arc welding ,
flux shielded arc welding or informally as stick welding
Welding is a hazardous undertaking and precautions are required to avoid burns, electric shock, vision damage, inhalation of poisonous gases and fumes, and exposure to intense ultraviolet radiation. At Lindsay Machine Works we are serious about safety and each of our employees is trained and have the resources to work in a safe environment.
Metal Fabrication is a value added process that involves the construction of structures from various metal materials. At Lindsay Machine Works we will study your engineers drawings, proto-type or broken fabrication to be duplicated, and send you a quote.
We are a machine shop that does fabrication on a daily basis.
Lindsay Machine Works, Inc. uses a multitude of value added processes in one facility including CAD Drawing, welding, cutting, forming and machining.
Metal fabrication jobs usually start with shop drawings, a prototype or a broken fabrication, once a quote is accepted, the process moves to fabrication.
Typical projects include;
structural frames for buildings and heavy equipment, bridges as well as assemblies as simple as hand railings and stairs for buildings.
