If you require GTAW, GMAW or Resistance metal welding services, Toledo Metal Spinning Company has the welding capacity and capabilities to meet your needs. Our hand welding capabilities meet the highest quality standards for strength and appearance. Whether it is a ferrule on one of our standard hoppers or a cylinder welded to a cone, the quality of our manual and automatic circumferential welds are unsurpassed in the industry.
Parts can be formed from a welded and annealed cylinder or cone blank in many heat sensitive materials. Prior to forming, the blanks undergo a vacuum annealing process to eliminate unfavorable mechanical properties in the heat affect zone (HAZ).
High quality welds for high quality parts. Why are our welds better?
- No weld bump during the forming process mitigates traumatic force shocks from roller collision and non-uniform force.
- Minimal porosity and near zero starts and stops to minimize sources for cracks initiation.
- Smooth, crack free parts with no grinding.
- TMS minimizes cost by eliminating non-value added welding operations.
Our machines are PLC controlled and programmed by highly qualified personnel. Reliability, repeatability and quality are what you can expect from Toledo Metal Spinning Company.
Longitudinal Seam Welding
Our longitudinal seam welding service capabilities are numerous, in our large roll and seam weld cell, we have a state of the art Davi roller. You can see our Cleanline Receptacles for an example. We can roll and weld cylinders up to 5′ in length, material ranging in thickness from 0.036″ thick to 0.187″ stainless steel (thicker for other material types). Once cylinders are rolled, if your specifications require, we can also lift a flange on one end or both.
Circumferential Seam Welding
Circumferential Seam Welding is a term used when welding together two pieces of material that are geometrically round. The weld can either be a butt weld, a lap weld or a seam weld. The seam weld will join two pieces together and similar to a spot weld, however the seam weld completely and continuously seals the joint. A MIG or TIG process can be used to do seam welding.
Manual welding is one of the most widely used welding techniques. Manual welding involves striking an arc between a covered metal electrode and the workpiece. The heat generated from the arc melts the parent metal and the electrode and joins the materials together, creating a solid piece.
