Mild Steel MIG welding
MIG, or ‘metal inert gas’, welding uses a wire electrode and arc to fuse mild metals. During this manual process, a shielding gas keeps contaminating particles away from the welding area, while minimising the loss of alloying material. At Wigley Engineering, we offer MIG welding services that create a strong and consistent join quickly. Save time and money without sacrificing quality.
Aluminium and Stainless Steel Welding Melbourne
TIG stands for ‘tungsten inert gas’, a name derived from the Tungsten electrode used. This manual welding involves feeding long welding rods into the puddle – a slow process best suited to intricate, thinner metals. To achieve a clean bead appearance on aluminium and stainless steel, TIG welding requires a skilled operator. At Wigley Engineering, our TIG welding specialists ensure a high-quality finish free from deformation and porosity.
Robot Welding Services
Boost efficiency and consistency with robot welding in Melbourne. Ideal for mass production, this automatic process is best suited to medium-to-large repeated runs. At Wigley Engineering, experienced operators monitor each automated robotic welding machine. Our flexible welding robots are programmed with precise parameters to perform welds of uniform size and quantity every cycle. Rest assured knowing your weld will be completed on time, to budget and with exceptional consistency.

Frequently Asked Questions
Welding is the process of joining two or more metal parts. During welding, the metals are melted and extra molten material is added to form a strong joint when the materials cool. As a result of this fusion, the metals form one component without compromising on strength or durability.
Welded metals remain rigid and robust in a variety of applications and industries, from aviation and auto mechanics to infrastructure construction.

The core distinction between MIG and TIG welding is their speed. In MIG welding, a spool of welding wire is fed quickly into the metal joint, whereas TIG welding involves feeding welding rods slowly into the weld.
As MIG welding involves the use of a filler material, it is usually chosen for thick, heavy-duty metals. In contrast, TIG welding demands greater skill and precision to create a clean weld. It tends to be employed for complex, low-power projects on thin metals.

Yes. You can weld stainless steel to mild steel. With appropriate equipment, temperatures, and filler material, it is possible to produce a strong weld that stands the test of time.

Aluminium and steel should not be welded directly together, as they have very different metallurgical and physical properties.
However, our welders can use a bimetallic transition insert to weld aluminium to steel for structural applications. The result is just as strong as an aluminium-to-aluminium or steel-to-steel weld.
To learn more about our approach to welding aluminium and steel, please contact our team.
Yes, galvanised steel can be welded if prepared properly and performed by a skilled welder. Otherwise, this process poses health risks associated with welding fumes and lead exposure.
To ensure safe and strong results, the zinc coating must be removed from the area to be welded. If this is not possible, a filler material should be used on any zinc-coated section.
To learn more about welding galvanised steel, please contact our team.
Yes, brass can be welded to steel. However, as these two materials have different melting temperatures, they must be joined using a gas-shielded arc process such as MIG or TIG welding.
At Wigley Engineering, our welders are highly skilled in these manual welding techniques. To learn more about welding brass to steel, please contact our team.
There is no set price for metal welding, as the cost varies according to factors such as the:
- Quantity of material being welded;
- Type of material being welded;
- Complexity of parts;
- Clarity of information received from the customer; and
- Subcontractor (e.g. machining, zinc plating, powder coating or galvanising).
