Precision Welding & Joining

Welding and joining are critical skill sets for an Advanced Manufacturing company like Imperial to possess. We are proud to offer some of the most advanced welding capabilities and techniques in the industry.

 
A Titanium weld for an M24 Lightweight machine gun mount for the Chinook helicopter. This is 1 of 1,500 manufactured entirely at Imperial. All welds passed X-ray and liquid penetrant testing.

We weld to a wide variety of Military and Commercial specifications including multiple AWS and ASME designations. We have particular skills in precision TIG welding of weldable grades of Aluminum, various Stainless and carbon steels and of course our specialty, Titanium and Tantalum. Our Weld department regularly welds to vacuum and pressure standards for multiple Tech, Military and Energy related applications.

In addition to our capabilities in welding we also offer other joining technologies such as vacuum furnace brazing and high temperature soldering. Our Joining department also has extensive capabilities in precision epoxy/bonding of structures and assemblies out of engineered plastics as well as metals.

Due to the type and nature of our Advanced Manufacturing approach many if not most of our welds must undergo further testing prior to further integration or shipment. It is very common for Imperial to provide full radiograph, dye penetrant and/or any destructive or non-destructive testing required by contract. In short, we have a very able and effective Welding and Joining department skilled in multiple disciplines in multiple metals and materials.
