TIG welding is key to develop various high-quality metalworks.
Kikukawa’s expertise and craftsmanship allows the fabrication of metal products with both quality and design.
Here is a mirror polished stainless steel monument, formed by eight rings that are joint together by a belt to form a 1m spherical monument.
Rings cut from 3mm thick metal sheets are fixed together by a perpendicular ring, cut from a 6mm metal sheet.
The monument reveals a different impression depending on the angle it is seen.
Each joint has different fixing angles and conditions – and the finish must be done carefully so that the monument can be seen from any angle.
Each welding is checked carefully so that the necessary strength is achieved while no deformation or decolouration has occurred. The exterior rings are securely welded, yet the joints are hardly visible.
As shown, Kikukawa has the know-how to provide high-quality weldings. Additionally, we have the latest technology, such as FSW and fiber laser welding, to meet the necessary welding requirements.
