Metal grids and baskets

Wire metal welded assemblies are very often used in addition to metal wire forming.
Indeed, these wire welded elements allow the manufacturing of baskets with hooks, grids with mounting brackets, grids with metal frames or metal wire complex products.
Several types of welding are possible in order to meet your requirements : spot welding, TIG welding, MIG welding, robot welding, electric resistance welding …

 

Flat grids, folded grids, metal baskets, we are wired to your ideas!

 

Our state-of-the-art know-how and high technology machinery enables us to weld and assemble metal wires in different diameters ranging from Ø 0.2 mm to 18 mm.
SFAM manufactures to your requirements welded, shaped, folded, profiled wire.

Field applications:

These wire pieces have different functions:

 

  • Wire nettings
  • Fence wire nettings
  • Barbecue grids
  • Electro polished stainless steel racks
  • Stainless steel grids for the food industry
  • Shelving grills
  • Oven grills
  • Ventilation grills
  • Safety grills
  • Dish washer baskets
  • Medical baskets
  • Bike baskets
  • Flower baskets
  • Sterilization baskets
  • Metal wire panels
  • Custom made nettings
  • Dish drainers
  • Banister railings

 

Tip: 

 

Stainless steel tends to blacken as far as the welding is concerned,
it is therefore often necessary to proceed to a cleaning by passivation treatment (matt aspect) or by electro-polishing (bright aspect)
The mesh size, height and width are adjustable on the grill welders.
Contact us for any special requirements, we are capable of manufacturing grills and panels to meet your unique specifications.

Welding processes:

There are many welding solutions, it is therefore very important to qualify the quality of the welding, the welded spot aspect, the economical aspect, the pull-out resistance.
We have 3 major solutions for metal wire welding.

 

TIG welding:

 

  • Fine and precise work
  • Average productivity
  • Good quality welded seams and good mechanical characteristics
  • Welding in all positions
  • Good weld bead aspect
  • Welding possible with or without metal input

 

MIG welding:

 

  • High productivity compared to TIG welding
  • High speed welding
  • High metal deposit (several kilos/hour)
  • Limitation of deformation
  • Limited number of re-welding operations
  • Good quality welded seams and good mechanical characteristics
  • Welding in all positions
  • Good weld bead aspect
  • Automated process usable in robotics

 

Electric resistance welding:

 

  • Fine and precise work
  • Good productivity
  • Good mechanical resistance
  • Vertical welding of the bracket
  • Very discreet welded spot
  • Does not burn the galvanized treatment
  • Welding without metal input

Wire section and materials used:

We can use round metal wire sections for diameters going from Ø 0.2 to 18 mm.
Materials used include: C9D mild steel – S235 steel – galvanized mild steel – stainless steel (430 stainless steel, 304 stainless steel, 302 stainless steel, 316 food grade stainless steel) – aluminium/zinc – Crapal – Benzinal – Galfan wire …
Other possibilities on demand…

Finishing and painting of metal parts:

We can ensure the finishing and painting of metal parts by our integrated epoxy and rilsan paint line : white zinc plating or zinc flake coating, powder coating, hot-dip galvanizing, chrome, electrolytic polishing, passivation…
