Metal Services of Blooming Prairie


Top-Notch Welding Services

At Metal Services of Blooming Prairie, our welders have over 150 years of combined welding experience and a wide breadth of industry knowledge. We offer a variety of arc welding and resistance welding services. Arc welding capabilities include MIG, TIG, flux core, and stud welding to applicable AWS and G6 standards. We can assist customers in determining the optimal arc welding method for a given material and application. Additional available welding processes include spot, oxy-fuel, spray, and overlay welding. We can efficiently handle high production jobs as well as single repair projects.

Our customers include the agricultural, commercial, livestock, manufacturing, and construction industries. Spray and overlay welding can be used to build up material on work equipment to extend equipment life and we specialize in the reflighting and repair of all types of augers and stock chopper covers. In addition we operate portable equipment that can be used to perform field services as an added convenience. Additional services include machining, metal fabrication, assembly, and finishing. For additional information about our comprehensive welding services, see the table below, or contact us directly.

Arc/Resistance Welding Process: FCAW (Flux Core Arc Welding - This process uses similar equipment as GMAW but in place of standard solid wire uses wire consisting of a steel electrode surrounding a powder fill material.)
GMAW (Gas Metal Arc Welding - Also known as metal inert gas or MIG welding.)
GTAW (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding - Also known as Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding. This process uses a nonconsumable tungsten electrode, an inert gas and a separate filler material. This process is sometimes mistakenly referred to as Heliarc welding.)
MIG (Metal Inert Gas welding - Also referred to as Gas Metal Arc Welding.)
Overlay (Overlay welding is a process used to apply hard facing and cladding of metal parts.)
Spot (Spot welding is form of resistance welding used to join overlapping metal sheets. Two electrodes are used to clamp the sheets together and pass the current between them.)
Spray (Spray welding is a process where weld material is sprayed onto a workpiece. This process can be used to apply wear and heat resistance coatings and to build up worn areas.)
Stud (Stud welding is a form of Spot welding where a bolt or weld nut is welded to another metal part. The bolts are often fed automatically into the welder.)
TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas welding - Also referred to as Gas Tungsten Arc Welding.)

Frictional/Fusion Welding Process: Oxy-Fuel Flame (This process uses a flame from the combustion of oxygen and a fuel gas such as acetylene to melt the materials being joined. This process typically produces a larger Heat Affected Zone (HAZ) than other welding processes.)
