Electro-Space is one of the few metal fabricators with in-house, fully-certified facilities for spotwelding aluminum and steel up to 1/8-inch thick. We apply perfect weld nuggets which can withstand pull tests up to 2,000 pounds—a definite advantage for products which are required to operate in rugged and hostile environments. To assure high-quality consistency, ESF uses 3-phase Sciakys ranging from 75 to 200 KVA, which carefully control heat and pressure. All operations are based upon MIL-W-6858 D.
We perform and document destructive pull tests on all spotwelded setups.
Because of the precise demands of heliarc welding, Electro-Space’s welders are highly skilled craftsmen with years of experience. Each welder is a specialist in maintaining close tolerances and squareness without heat distortion, while assuring weld integrity. All welders are tested and certified in accordance with MIL-STD-1595A. Our heliarc specializes in the welding of enclosures, chassis, weldments, and similar items requiring a “molded”, intricately contoured appearance. Our welders are also experienced in the complex manufacture of the “Tempest” generation of enclosures, which requires a totally sealed weldment to prevent electronic leakage.
