Welding

One of the services we offer at Darkmoon Metals is welding. We can repair materials such as mild steel, stainless steel, cast iron, aluminum, brass and copper. Some objects that we have been able to build or repair ourselves have saved our clients hundreds if not thousands of dollars in replacement costs.

 

Most of the welding equipment in the shop is made by Miller, the Syncrowave 200, Millermatic 251 and the Spectrum 2050 plasma cutter. The last machine is a Hobart Beta-Mig that is well over 20 years old but it still has a lot of life left in it.

 

With our current equipment we can perform a wide variety of repairs and custom fabrication. Being able to weld different materials we have been able to work in areas of the food service, maritime and automotive industries. We have the right tools and experience to get the job done.
