The Cutting Edge Fabrication (CEF) team are expert at welding various metal types and material thicknesses, including aluminum. Aluminum is a highly porous metal, requiring low-temperature preheating to drive out moisture and other contaminants. Weld joint preparation is critical, removing oxide or other surface impurities before welding. Aluminum and aluminum alloys possess a low melting point and require a certified welder’s skill to create complete fusion without porosity, burn through, and warp. CEF’s years of experience, proven welding processes, state-of-the-art equipment, and inspection services meet or exceed the most demanding project requirements. Please get in touch with our friendly customer service department to discuss your aluminum welding needs.
