Fabrication and Welded Metal Products

Hydram Sheet Metalwork provides welding of stainless steel, mild steel and aluminium components and custom precision sheet metal fabrications.  Hydram offers both manual MIG welding and TIG welding and a comprehensive metal dressing service as part of its precision sheet metal fabrication service.

Robotic Welding

Hydram Sheet Metalwork employs three Panasonic PerformArc robot welding cells to ensure consistency and economy on longer production runs of custom sheet metal fabrications.  All three cells are equipped with electric turntables allowing maximum productivity.  The largest system has rotary manipulators allowing workpieces to be turned independently of the robot position.

Maximum welding robot capacity for components is 150kg, 2200mm long.
