  • Robotic Welding At AT&F

    When AT&F was approached to produce 40ft long complex weldments for a crane manufacturer, the company looked to employ new technology on a larger scale than is typically attempted. AT&F is known for the scale, scope, and precision of our long-forming capabilities. More recently, we made investments to cover long length precision welding using robotics. Traditionally, long length full p...

  • How Forming Works

    Turning a plate of steel into a finished part takes specialized equipment and a deep understanding of what the plate undergoes during the process. From heavy cylinders to frame rails to crane booms, large structures can be formed with a high degree of control, but different projects call for different pieces of equipment. AT&F has world class equipment and expertise in metal forming go...

  • MIG Welding

    While one of the most widely used and accessible methods of welding, gas metal arc welding (GMAW) is actually a balancing act of many important variables that greatly affect the quality of the weld. Commonly known as MIG welding (short for “metal inert gas”), this method utilizes a consumable metal as an electrode like shielded metal arc welding in the form of a wire. The wire is fed s...

  • Tantalum

    Chemical heat exchangers, dealing with volatile chemicals at high temperatures, are prone to corrosion. Fortunately, tantalum is one of the most corrosion resistant metals on earth. AT&F Advanced Metals has experience with many specialty metals, including tantalum, and have manufactured many tantalum heat exchangers, lined pressure vessels, and other specialty application components th...

  • Fabricating vs Forging

    Metalworking is not limited to fabricating. Forging is another form by which metal is manipulated. Both forging and fabricating have their strengths and weaknesses, and one method may be better suited for your needs than the other. Let’s break down the differences between the two methods.

  • From the Floor - Coal Mining Cable Reel

    AT&F continues to push the limits of size, scope, and scale while retaining custom versatility in our manufacturing process. Coal mining relies on high-strength components and cable reels are no exception. This particular cable reel is exceptional due to its size and thickness. Hot rolled at 5 ½ inches thick and over 5 feet wide, this cable reel is among the biggest in the industry, des...

  • Heavy Cylinder Cutting

    A few months ago we showcased our rolling and processing capabilities for heavy cylinders, and now we want to share our expert cutting capabilities. When it comes to providing the most value to customers under one roof, AT&F is second to none. With expert flame cutting, tight tolerances for rolling and forming, and unmatched welding capabilities, our commitment to customer success shi...

  • Fabricating Lessons that Stand the Test of Time

    As he was interviewing for his current position as business unit leader of AT&F Wisconsin about two years ago, Joe Girard noticed a small saying at the bottom of a job description he was perusing: “The company is in its fourth generation of family leadership. While the values of the organization are similar to those found in family-run firms, the company is sophisticated and profession...

  • From the Floor: Weld Institute Expansion

    AT&F is an industry leader in welding capabilities, with in-house robotic welding, and a Weld Institute that teaches students the fundamentals of welding—as well as advanced techniques—courtesy of our highly skilled welding engineers. Our Weld Institute, formed in (2015), is currently undergoing repositioning and expansion to accommodate larger classes and cover more welding types.

  • Safety When Welding

    Welding, like any job in a fabricating facility, comes with risks. Some risks are inherent to the craft, and some are factors of the environment, but all risks can be assessed and mitigated, if not completely eliminated, by following procedures. Safety has been a pillar for AT&F since our creation in 1940. The priorities that drive our business are “Safety, Quality, and Productivity,” ...

  • Press Release: AT&F Wisconsin Upgrades Facility

    AT&F is pleased to announce recent upgrades to our Wisconsin facility, including a brand new plasma and oxy-fuel cutting table with a 5-axis beveling head, and improvements to a large capacity boring bar. In addition to the equipment upgrades, AT&F Wisconsin is pleased to announce the addition of a Certified Weld Inspector (CWI) to further enhance the welding quality and provide a valu...

  • TIG Welding: Precision and Preparation

    When a welding job requires precision, the obvious method to use is TIG welding. Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) is a welding method using tungsten as an electrode and argon or helium gas as a shielding agent. When GTAW was first introduced in 1941, it used exclusively helium as the shielding gas. This gave it its original name: Heli arc welding. It is now referred to as tungsten inert...

  • The History of Welding

    For millennia, metals have been manipulated to man’s wants and needs. But from primitive hammers and anvils to high-tech robotic lasers, man’s methods of manipulation have changed and evolved drastically over time. The impact of advancements in welding has built skyscrapers, automobiles, and even nuclear reactors, but the genesis of welding looked nothing like the advanced technology w...

  • How Welding Works

    Welding is a ubiquitous method of metalworking that joins two pieces of metal together to form a strong bond. But what exactly happens when the two metals join together? By definition, welding joins two pieces of metal by fusion. In order to properly fuse together, the base metal must melt and flow together. Older welding methods would employ an oxyfuel blowtorch to heat pieces of meta...
