  ANCA Manufacturing Solutions is fully equipped with TIG, MAG & Pulse MIG, welding equipment covering typical applications in steel, stainless steel and aluminium materials.

Welding is a crucial process in manufacturing that involves joining materials together by melting and fusing them. Different welding techniques are used depending on the specific requirements of the project.

Anca Manufacturing use three common techniques, which are TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas), MIG (Metal Inert Gas), and Pulse MIG welding. TIG welding uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to produce high-quality welds and is suitable for a wide range of materials such as stainless steel (SS), aluminum (AL), steel (ST), zinc-plated steel (ZPS), galvanized steel (GS), and various combinations of these materials. MIG welding, on the other hand, utilizes a consumable wire electrode and is known for its high production rates. It is commonly used for welding materials such as stainless steel and steel.


What to expect


Both TIG and MIG welding offer a 100% duty cycle, ensuring continuous operation without interruptions. Another technique is stud welding, which involves the joining of metal studs to a base metal surface.

Additionally, robot welding plays a significant role in modern manufacturing processes. By utilizing robotic arms with precision control, it allows for efficient and accurate welds. The size of the robot welding equipment can vary depending on the specific application and requirements. With robot welding, we can design different jig fixtures tailored to the client's unique designs, ensuring precise and consistent welds. This flexibility enables us to produce both low and high volume components on the robot welder with the use of SMED (Single Minute Exchange of Dies) techniques, which facilitate quick changeover, turnover, improved efficiency, and reduced setup time.

Furthermore, we have the capability to produce in-house jigs and fixtures with low, medium, and high precision, depending on the specific requirements of the project. Additionally, we employ the tabs and slots process to enhance the accuracy and alignment of welded components. Theoretical welding rates are calculated based on the specific welding process, materials, and other variables.

To ensure the quality and integrity of the welds, we conduct various weld testing methods, including helium leak testing, dye penetration testing, IP testing, immersion testing, and air pressure decay testing, all tailored to meet customer requirements and international standards.

Robot welding
We currently have two ABB robot welders. The robot welders are a pre-engineered welding solution from ABB that helps us to provide more consistent results with shorter run times and lower cost of manufacture. Robotic welding automates the welding process to increase accuracy, enhance safety and reduce the time needed to complete each project. These benefits make the robotic welding process a popular alternative to manual metal joining. This all helps to decrease our footprint in the factory and allow us to increase our capacity with the same size facility. Our customers also benefit from improved quality and at a price point. 
TIG welding
TIG stands for Tungsten Inert GAS. In the TIG welding process the arc is formed between a pointed tungsten electrode and the workpiece in an inert atmosphere of argon or helium. The small intense arc provided by the pointed electrode is ideal for high quality and precision welding. Because the electrode is not consumed during welding, the TIG welder does not have to balance the heat input from the arc as the metal is deposited from the melting electrode. When filler metal is required, it must be added separately to the weldpool. TIG welding is applied in all industrial sectors but is especially suitable for high quality welding. In manual welding, the relatively small arc is ideal for thin sheet material or controlled penetration (in the root run of pipe welds). Because deposition rate can be quite low (using a separate filler rod) MMA or MIG may be preferable for thicker material and for fill passes in thick-wall pipe welds.
MIG welding
MIG is a faster method of welding when compared to TIG. MIG (Metal Inert GAS) welding is an arc welding process in which a continuous solid wire electrode is fed through a welding gun and into the weld pool, joining the two base materials together. A shielding gas is also sent through the welding gun and protects the weld pool from contamination. MIG/MAG welding is a versatile technique suitable for both thin sheet and thick section components which makes it the most common welding techniques within ASM.
Spot welding
Spot welding is among the earliest welding procedures. Some materials resist electrical currents, precluding them from other forms of welding. This situation frequently occurs in the automotive industry for piecing together parts of an automobile body. To overcome the issue, spot welders use a variation of resistance welding to connect a pair of thin metal sheets in a single spot. Spot welding is considered to be one of the most efficient welding processes and is typically used to merge two or more metal sheets into one.
Stud welding
Stud welding is a process by which a metal stud is joined to a metal workpiece by heating both parts with an arc. A key factor that differentiates stud welding from other fastening processes is that the fastener is attached to the workpiece without marring the other side. The arc stud welding method provides highly reliable fastening for a wide variety of applications. This method allows almost any size or configuration of a metal stud to be welded quickly to a workpiece, while providing maximum weld penetration and reliability.
Welding tractor
Welding tractors offer a level of automation which can improve the consistency, efficiency and productivity of your welding. Mechanising your MIG or Submerged Arc welding process improves our welders ergonomics, increase our productivity and quality, and greatly reducing costs. This process is more suited to long straight runs of weld and especially suited to heavy welding where multipass method is required.
