Generally, Alinco’s welding projects involve TIG (mainly), semi-automatic and stick welding. The welding process is chosen during production; it may but does not have to be specified by the customer.

When designing the project, the engineer can insert universally used welding symbols on the drawings. Since this rarely happens, we devise a logical welding technique. If we have carte blanche, we may also apply less common welding techniques such as plasma keyhole welding. It does help, however, if the designer specifies whether a weld should be single-sided, double-sided or a deep weld fill. This often makes a big difference in terms of price and can be indicated as text on the drawing. And don’t forget to mention the desired weld seam finish.

Additional requirements that will incur extra costs, such as a welding book, also need to be stated in the request for a quotation. Since our welders have the necessary certificates and Alinco has a large database of PQR, WPS etc. welders, you can rest assured that your product will meet quality standards even without a welding book; the price difference in the latter case is due to the extra work performed by a welding engineer to format the book and the additional supervision needed; this is not a common request for a drip tray of a few hundred euros, for example, but it is possible if desired.
