Welding and Cutting
Our solutions for TIG, MIG Welding, and Laser Cutting
Air Liquide has been serving welding and cutting customers over a century now. We have evolved our technologies & expertise to address challenges faced by the fabrication industry by ensuring superior weld quality, better efficiencies and lower costs of production simultaneously. We offer customized solutions for your specific needs.
Welding & Cutting Process
The welding process facilitates joining metallic materials such as sheets, tubes, etc., into machines and structures using electricity to melt the metal. In arc welding, an inert gas like Argon & Argon Mixtures shields the liquid metal pool from gases present in the atmosphere resulting in quality issues like porosity and spatters.
The cutting process enables the separation of metal sheets, structures, and pipe pieces by using flame, plasma, or laser cutting.
Our Welding & Cutting Solutions
Air Liquide offers ARCAL for Arc welding which includes a range of ready-to-weld argon mixture solutions that cover almost all of your welding application requirements. LASAL For cutting application includes a complete range of high-purity lasing gases which enhances the reliability of the laser machines and reduces production costs by increasing the lifespan of laser optics.
Gases used for Welding & Cutting
Gas applications: Welding
Precision and safety are required for the storage of high-pressure Laser gases. Air Liquide has designed laser gases as per the laser source manufacturers’ specifications.
Pure LASAL gases - are prepared under tight quality control procedures
LASAL laser gases - include carbon dioxide, nitrogen, and helium. These gases can be supplied individually or pre-mixed based on the laser source used.
Plasma welding is an arc welding process. The plasma arc generates the heat source required for fusion. It also has a high energy density.
Air Liquide has been a pioneer in this field and has designed special gas compositions, enabling faster welding processes with the highest quality weld seams.
Metal Inert Gas (MIG) mixtures are used to weld non-ferrous materials such as Aluminum alloys, Copper alloys, Brass alloys, etc.
Metal Active Gas (MAG) mixtures are used to weld steel, CrNi steels, dissimilar material grades, etc.
Our products serve best for all applications, be they manual, Semi-Automatic, Robotic, or Fully Automated which comes along with our years of expertise in providing perfect welding solutions.
Gas applications: Cutting
Air Liquide has designed special gas/ gas mixtures as per various laser source manufacturers’ specifications. Air Liquide’s LASAL solution helps in improving the reliability and performance of specialized laser cutting work.
The laser cutting process is applied mainly on thin sheet metals that require high precision and productivity. Air Liquide’s LASAL solution helps in improving the reliability and performance of all types of laser cutting work.
