Widely acknowledged as market leaders in our field, the name ABR has been synonymous with the precision welding of plastic injection, pressure die casting and press tools for over 30 years.
ABR provide a range of refined “metal on” processes for the purpose of tool repair, rectification of design faults, machining errors and tooling modifications.
2009 saw the launch of ABR’s on site laser welding service. ABR’s portable systembrings high quality, high precision laser welding to the customers workplace. Ideally suited to large tools which are time consuming and costly to dismantle and transport. The portable laser welding system is a great aid in minimising tool downtime. Below is a summary of ABR’s main services, all carried out to the highest standard in accordance with ISO 9001:2015.
Laser Welding: 6 laser welding systems, 8 tonne handling capacity. Ultra-precise weld placement, cold process, no distortion or heat sink. Weld down holes and slots 1-2mm wide. Excellent results on aluminium and
Micro TIG Welding: Developed in-house by ABR to enable the precise placement of tiny beads of TIG weld. Less heat input and heat sink than conventional TIG welding.
TIG Welding: Reliable established process carried out to the highest standard.
Plating: Cold process, hard wearing. Ideally suited to diameters (internal and external) and large surface areas.
On Site Laser and TIG Welding: Fast call out, nationwide service. ABR’s portable laser welding system has a long and flexible reach to cater for the largest of tools and deep cavities.
Prototype/Production Welding: Are you looking to develop a new product? Perhaps you are considering the use of laser welding as a way of improving an existing component. ABR offer a prototype welding service in all materials including aluminium, copper and titanium. Using lasers ABR can weld thin wall or delicate components with minimal heat input and distortion. The laser beam can also access restricted areas conventional welding techniques cannot reach. Prototype welding can be extended to the welding of small trial batches often without expensive fixture costs. ABR can also advise on the weldability of your component/material, fixture design and weld testing.
Also available silver soldering/brazing All but the largest undertakings are completed on a while you wait/next day basis. An overnight courier service links us with our more distant customers, or we can collect/deliver tools personally.
