PEM Sheet metal is one of the
largest subcontract welding specialists in Essex
Currently we have 13 TIG welding sets, 5 spot welding sets and 3 MIG welding sets giving us 5500 hours of welding capacity per month.
The welding of thin sheet metal is a specialist area. PEM employs some of the most highly skilled staff available anywhere and has invested in the latest TIG welding equipment.
We weld metals from foils to 20 mm thick plates in mild steel, stainless steel and aluminium. We also weld more exotic materials such as titanium and
have had impressive results on recent projects TIG welding brass. PEM Sheet metal is currently evaluating robotic TIG welding, Laser and Ion Beam welding techniques.
Welding of sheet metal, especially aluminium welding and stainless steel welding, requires high levels of skill and dexterity to produce clean, neat and
visually appealing welds. It is also vitally important to minimise the heat input to stop distortions. PEM Sheet metal has the staff and equipment to enable us to do this and to have an enviable reputation in this field.
The welding of stainless steel and aluminium are areas of particular skill. Many of our products are for customers in the medical industry. They often
require stainless steel to be welded to tight tolerances and to an extremely high visual standard with no ‘inclusions’ or porosity. Usually there will be no
finish applied or perhaps just electro polishing. In ether case the quality of the weld is paramount. Also for food and pharmaceutical applications we
have the ability to 100% gas purge to minimise oxidisation around the heat affected zone. The welding of tube and pipe work for the food and beverage industry is now becoming a growing part of out business.
