Welding and Cutting Supplies for Aerospace and Defense

Aerospace and defense welding and cutting are high-precision processes with no error margin. A Meritus Gas Partners supplier is your one-stop headquarters for high-performing equipment that always delivers:

  • Oxy-acetylene welders: These machines perform most of the gas welding techniques during aircraft fabrication. The equipment mixes appropriate proportions of oxygen and acetylene gas to produce combustion.
  • Electric arc welders: The aerospace industry uses this equipment for aircraft repair projects. Technicians can use the machinery to join any weldable metals when implementing the proper materials and processes.
  • Shielded metal arc welders: SMAW is a form of electric arc welding, also known as stick welding, and is beneficial for aerospace and defense applications because it produces the strongest hold of any welding method and works with metals of various thicknesses.
  • Tungsten inert gas welders: TIG welding is a good choice for the aerospace industry because it can join various metals in an aircraft without requiring fasteners.
  • Plasma cutters: These advanced machines can precisely cut metal sheets and structures consisting of all the common materials used in aircraft fabrication, including titanium, aluminum and their alloys. They’re also useful for dismantling and scrapping aircraft.
