Welding

Fully equipped MIG/TIG Welding stations for Aluminium fabrications

  • MIG Welding:  Sometimes referred to as Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), this is a process that utilizes a constantly fed solid electrode, shielding gas from an externally supplied source and electrical power to melt the electrode and leave this molten material in the weld joint.
  • TIG Welding (Tungsten Inert Gas): Known as Gas tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), the process uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode that sends the current to the welding arc. The tungsten and weld puddle are safeguarded and cooled with an inert gas, usually argon. As it used a filler material for build-up or reinforcement, TIG welding is like oxy-acetylene welding.

Metal Working

  • End for or near bends
  • No Tube Clamping required

Roll Forming

Capable of producing 4,000 metres of Aluminium trims per day

Roll forming is a continuous profile production process to form sheet metal progressively into  a desired shape with closer tolerances.

The process offers several advantages including:

  • Complex geometrical shapes
  • High strength
  • Dimensional accuracy
  • Closer tolerances
  • Good surface finish

The process can also produce thin-walled cross-sections and complex shaped profiles which are difficult to produce by other methods.

In some cases roll-formed profiles have more inherent strength than those produced by other methods.

Powder Coating

Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder.

The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form.

The facilities at the NWA Group Powder Coating plant include:

  • Box Oven 4.5m x 2.5m x 2.4m
  • Spray Room 5m x 3m x 2.5m
  • Overhead Conveyor System
  • Dip Pre Treatment Tank System (4 stage)
  • Well Drying Oven
