Welding

Supported by staff welding engineers, our welding operations feature ASME, AWS and API weld procedures, using industry recommended processes, such as EBW, GMAW, among others. AFGlobal also offers specialty welding techniques such as inlay, overlay, cladding and hardfacing with high alloy and exotic filler metals using automatic and manual processes.

  • Tubular products
  • Heavy structural fabrication
  • Clad overlay and inlay
  • Brazing
  • Pressure vessels

Machining

From rough machined to finished products, AFGlobal has the machine tools to produce and support industry standard products as well as some of the most complex components. Our machining services are backed by ASME, AS9100 and ISO 9001 certifications, along with other industry standards as required. Our state-of-the-art machinery enables us to produce incredibly tight tolerances—down to .0001.
