Aluminium—Circumferential Welding and Copper Plating
Circumferential Welding of Aluminium Castings
A unique combination of high mechanical strength and low weight makes aluminium a perfect material for many applications. Here at Thoni Alutec, we perform circumferential welding of thin-wall aluminium tubes and our castings in a wide range of lengths— from 500 mm to 11m. This process is closely related to the energy industry, where components welded in such a way are later installed in power transmission equipment.
Every aluminium pipe must meet strict requirements for dimesional tolerances. In addition, it must undergo a burst test, a leak test, and a radiographic inspection.
At Thoni Alutec, our personnel holds welding qualifications granted by SVTI and TUV, and the welding department is regularly audited by external organizations.
We have expanded our offer to include structural welding
At the client’s request, we perform welding of additional aluminium components (fittings, covers, plugs) to our castings.
Copper Plating of Aluminium Castings
In addition, we perform copper plating of machined surfaces by thermal spraying.
The process is used to increase the electrical conductivity of our castings.
