Weld Wire Wizard

When dealing with specialty alloys, there can be unique welding combinations where guidance is not easily found. The Rolled Alloys Weld Wire Wizard helps to take guesswork out of the equation by allowing you to select any two alloys and see which weld wire is preferred. This tool was created with welders and fabricators in mind to determine the best wire options for their specific alloys or applications.

    Value Added Services

    Premium E-Grade

    E-Grade is an extraordinarily clean product manufactured through a mechanical process to remove impurities from the wire’s surface and provide exceptional welds.

    Specifications

    Rolled Alloys supplies weld wire to meet requirements of AMS, AWS, and to aerospace companies such as Pratt & Whitney and GE. Most weld filler is covered by the American Welding Society [AWS] specifications. The Aerospace welding wires are predominately purchased to an AMS spec, whether or not they also have AWS.

    Alloy Identification [LCS]

    Flag Tagging, Labeling and Packaging are available to meet all customer specifications.

    Flag Tagging

    Flag tagging is a positive method of identification. The tag has a pressure sensitive adhesive backing and is placed approximately 1.2″ from the end of the rod. Tags are printed with alloy and specifications for identification. Custom tags are available.

    Custom Packaging [AMS 2814]

    We have custom packaging to meet customer requirements or specifications. We do standard packaging to protect the products we manufacture.

    Centerless Grinding

    Centerless grinding is used for surface finishing of straight material. This includes through feed grinding of various materials for Aerospace Screw Machine, Electronics, Automotive, and Medical. Our size range is 0.012″ to 0.200″ in diameter.

    Spooled Wire

    1 to 33 lb. layer wound spools or random wound spools available. Subarc 50 and 60 lb. reels are available.

    Wire Cleaning

    Rolled Alloys provides superior quality cleanliness of all wire products tested to the Kodak gray scale.

    Straightening and Cutting Capabilities

    Diameter: From 0.015″ Diameter to 0.200″ Diameter
    Length: From 12″ +/-0.010″ Lengths to 72″ Lengths

    Types Of Welding

    GMAW [Gas Metal Arc Welding]

    Diameter: From 0.015″ Diameter to 0.200″ Diameter Metal Inert Gas [MIG] now known as GMAW [Gas Metal Arc Welding] is an arc welding process in which the weld is shielded by an external gas. This process is always done using a spooled weld wire usually 0.035” or 0.045” in diameter.

    GTAW [Gas Tungsten Arc Weld]

    Tungsten Inert Gas [TIG] now known as GTAW [Gas Tungsten Arc Welding]. GTAW is usually done with 36” straight lengths of wire.

    SMAW [Shielded Metal Arc Weld]

    Shielded Metal Arc Welding [SMAW] is commonly called “stick welding”, Manual Arc Welding, or welding with covered electrodes.

    SAW [Submerged Arc Weld]

    SAW is an automatic process using spooled wire like GMAW/MIG, except the wire is larger diameter. 3/32” diameter is common for nickel alloys, but 1/16” and 1/8” diameter wires are also used. Instead of shielding the welding arc with the inert gas argon, in SAW a hopper drops granulated flux [like coarse sand] down, to melt in the arc and protect the weld puddle from oxidation. For every pound of weld wire used, SAW consumes roughly a pound of flux as well.

    FCAW [Flux Cored Arc Welding]

    FCAW is also spooled wire and looks the same as MIG/GMAW wire. Flux cored wire is a hollow metal tube, with powdered flux and alloying elements in the tube. FCAW is a flexible welding method that gives high deposition rates. It can be in all welding positions and is extremely welder-friendly. The flux filled wire is automatically fed through the center of the gun using the same equipment as GMAW. The shielding gas is supplied through the gun and protects the weld pool from oxidation during welding. The flux inside the wire will protect the weld from the atmosphere since it forms a slag which covers the weld. It is available in stainless and in nickel grade alloys.
