Types of Corrosion-Resistant Welding for Large Scale Components

Next time you need premium welding work, look to the local experts with universal solutions. The Custom Group offers diverse services, from welding to the application of corrosion-resistant overlays. Custom Engineering welders have decades of experience in a wide range of techniques, including GTAW/TIG, GMAW/MIG, FCAW, and robotic welding.

Our Erie, Pennsylvania-based welders and shop are NADCAP, TPG, and ISO 9001:2015 certified. We maintain over 180 qualified welding procedures per ASME Section IX, AWS D1.1, AWS D1.6, and other various construction codes. If large-scale steel plate components are your business, join our team for turn-key, high-quality manufacturing.

Benefits of GMAW/MIG, FCAW, GTAW/TIG, and Robotic Welding for Large Scale Components like Pressure Vessels, Skids, and Water Vessel Parts

Every process at Custom Engineering is meticulously carried out. Our expertise in the technicalities of welding makes the difference between components with a joint that corrodes…and one that lasts. MIG and TIG arc welding techniques are commonly used for large-scale components; however, we always assist clients in determining the best weld for their unique projects.

  • GMAW/MIG Welding

    GMAW welding is time efficient and an excellent process for heftier materials. These welds are versatile and robust, can withstand extreme force, and feature virtually zero corrosion when done correctly.

  • FCAW Welding

    Custom welders use FCAW for precise welding of ferrous materials requiring high-quality out-of-position welds, deep penetration, elevated joining ability when contaminants are present, and a wide range of electrode materials.

  • GTAW/TIG Welding

    TIG is ideally suited for projects using thin materials such as stainless steel, aluminum, and titanium. TIG welding is ideal when clean, solid welds are required, as well as when aesthetics are important

  • Robotic Welding

    Our state-of-the-art welding technology makes Custom the premier choice for complex fabrications and welding. Using the Motoman EA 1900 TN overhead mounted robotic welding cell, we facilitate large production runs that are accurate and repeatable. This cell also significantly increases production speed and efficiency.


We offer welding for large-scale components and strive to make corrosion-resistant welds. In addition, to enhance the durability of welds, we may recommend applying corrosion-resistant overlays to particular components.


When corrosion-proof welding is the goal, overlays are the industry’s gold standard. Our professionals are practiced and exacting when applying custom overlays. Custom Engineering’s welders carefully avoid common overlay application issues, while adding value to the qualities of the selected base element.


  • What is Corrosion-Resistant Overlay?

    Welding overlay joins one metal to the surface of another. This fusion increases the strength of the base metal and results in a more robust, more competitively priced composite product.  The new base metal produced by overlay creates a material that enhances resistance to corrosion and wear.

  • Which Weld?

    Custom Engineering’s welders know corrosion-resistant welding inside and out. Our experts consult clients on the best weld for their particular overlay and base materials. GMAW/MIG, GTAW/TIG, FCAW, SAW, and robotic welds are available. With our team of seasoned welders and engineers, we help clients choose the perfect method and materials for each project.
