Welding is a very common and familiar step in the fabrication process. However, when needing to create intricate designs that join two or more pieces of metal together, the singular operation of welding is utilised. Our team at Langford Metal specialises in stainless steel welding, using the process of fusion to create intricate products and projects.
Many techniques can be used to complete the welding process and efficiently create your perfect metal product. For instance, when it comes to your stainless steel product, we utilise the latest and most advanced machinery to formulate your design. Our team of experts at Langford Metal are highly experienced in welding services and will shape stainless steel into the desired form.

The Benefits Of Welding
There are countless benefits associated with welding – especially the act of resistance welding on stainless steel. Resistance welding relies on pressure to join two pieces of metal together and will complete the overall look of your fabricated product. Some of the many advantages of choosing to weld include:
- Precise welds
- Faster and more efficient welding of stainless steel
- No need to worry about flux or filler
- Reduced discolouration at the weld site
- Elimination of bowing
Welding And Fabrication
In its most basic form, stainless steel welding refers to joining two pieces of metal together. This is different from the concept of fabrication, which includes creating a new product out of metal.
Stainless steel fabrication utilises various processes and special techniques, including:
- Die-cutting – utilising special lasers to cut the stainless steel into the desired shape
- Finishing – ensuring that the product is finished to an exceptional standard
- Roll forming – converts sheet metal into an appropriate shape by using a rolling technique
- Shrinking – the process of shrinking may be needed to create the required product
- Spinning – metal spinning is used to mould the stainless steel
- Stamping – involves placing metal into a stamping press to create a net shape
- Stretching – stretch forming is when metal is stretched and bent at the same time to form large, contorted parts.
At Langford Metal, our welding and fabrication services are reliable, efficient, and deliver the expected results. For more information on our welding and fabrication processes and any of the specialty techniques we utilise, contact our team today.

What is fabrication and welding?
Metal fabrication is an umbrella term for any process that transforms raw metal materials into a finished product. It consists of many different techniques, including welding. Aside from welding, fabrication can also consist of bending, stamping, punching, and many more.
Welding is the process in which two pieces of metal are joined together. Welding uses a power supply to create an electric arc between the welding rod and the material itself. This current produces a large amount of heat which will melt the metals. Afterwards, a filler is added to fuse the metal to create a joined piece.
How do you fill holes in sheet metal without welding?
Aside from welding, there are a few other methods that you can use to fill in holes in metal.
Epoxy, a chemical adhesive, is considered an alternative to welding due to its strong adhesive properties. It is most effective when used to repair a small hole. When using epoxy, it is vital to properly prepare the area before applying the epoxy and sealing the finished application.
You can also apply a patch of sheet metal on top of the hole. This is a more straightforward technique than epoxy, and all you need is a sheet of base metal and nails to attach the patch.
