Welding is the foundation of all component manufacturing and metal fabrication. Extreme heat, gases, flux and a healthy dose of skill create the bond that turns concept into reality. Around Bayou Welding Technologies, an expertly crafted weld bead is a thing of beauty-it’s also the standard they maintain for every job.
Like all facets of the trade, welding has been influenced by innovation. Gone are the days of helmet-clad workers crowding assembly lines in the midst of a shower of sparks and machinery. Robotics and automation have superseded much of the human touch with pinpoint accuracy and limitless productivity (machines never rest).
To their credit, Bayou Welding Technologies has harnessed the versatility of automatic welding while integrating real human know-how to direct the operation. After all, a machine can only perform under the guidelines it’s given. That task takes human expertise-something Bayou Welding Technologies is seasoned with.
Bayou Welding Technologies employs numerous welding techniques depending on the job and the magnitude. If you’re an old pro, terms like arc, tig, mig and resistance welding will ring a bell. If you’re unfamiliar and are more interested in turning over your job with confidence, you’ve come to the right place.
Bayou Welding Technologies clad welding department provides Inconel, Stainless Steel, and Stellite Overlay/Inlay of valves, fittings, wellhead components, pipe, and other components.
