Aluminum Welding in Albuquerque, New Mexico
Aluminum is a basic element with applications as varied as kitchen appliances and aerospace. But the same properties that make aluminum a good choice for everything from patio railings to airplane wing skins to golf clubs can make welding a challenge…and one that not every metal fabrication shop is equipped to deal with.
Aluminum Welding Challenges
Compared to other metals, aluminum presents some difficulties because it is:
- Highly heat conductive
- Easily warped by heat
- Softer, more malleable
These properties mean that aluminum’s structural composition is more easily altered during the cutting and welding processes.
