Welding and Fabrication
Naylor's Custom Metal Cutting takes welding a little too seriously sometimes, for instance we TIG welded lawn decorations for 5 plus years because the process was cleaner, penetration was better, and the appearance was superior. Well, maybe that was overkill.. But everything we sold looked like it was welded by a good hand. Probably no one even noticed, haha but we didn't care, those are the best welded pumpkins in the great state of Wisconsin no question. And even today we use certified Starrett machine squares to check our corners; again overkill? But that's just who we are and it's just sort of pervasive hyper-sensitivity to quality that's present in all aspects of our company.
We can join any common material; stainless steel alloys, carbon steel alloys, any aluminum alloy, aluminum and steel castings, we've done a little brazing and a little copper. So we're pretty well versed in our materials, but we're also pretty well versed in our processes and where to use them. We use spray transfer MIG for the most part because we like the results and don't mind positioning parts. Stainless steel TIG is our second most commonly used process, we do a lot of stainless frames for food processing companies. Short circuit on carbon steel is probably most common actually, but only by volume, we churn out a lot of tanks and tank stands for the aquaponics industry. But if we were to compare processes by how many feet of weld, no doubt spray transfer.
