Metal craft - create your own objects in wrought iron

Metallslöjd

Last Saturday it was metalwork with Marco. One of the participants made his own TV stand. She had made a drawing herself, which she had shown us before. She got help from us to buy flat steel and then she made the TV bench with the help of our experienced blacksmith Marco as a course leader. From idea to finished result result!

“Last Saturday I was finally at Metallslöjd at Lundgren's!
How fun! So instructive! So good teacher! I am very happy with the day and want to share the end result. A 3 m long TV bench with 3 steel bases and on top 2 acacia wooden boards. Thanks to Marco's skilled craftsmanship, advice and tips, we got a really nice construction. BIG THANK YOU MARCO! ”

Do you also want to come up with metalwork?

We have metal handicrafts both in the evenings and on weekends. For more information and registration see here.

Welding skills on test

Today, our blacksmiths get to show their welding skills by taking welding tests. They should put butt welds on pipes. A welding inspector monitors the actual test installation. He verifies that the welder complies with the specified WPS and that the requirements set in the standard are met. When the sample is ready, the inspector performs a visual inspection of the sample. If the requirements are met, a non-destructive test in the form of an X-ray is relevant. If the result of the X-ray is approved, a welder test certificate will be issued and then you just have to go out and weld again 🙂

Do you need to put a welding test?

Then you can book a welding test with us! We arrange premises, welding machines, filler materials, materials and WPSs. We work with an established third-party certification body that monitors and assesses that the requirements are met in accordance with current standards. A welder test certificate will be issued at an approved welder test.

We arrange welder tests in most welding methods, welding modes, material qualities and dimensions. You choose which material, wall thickness, welding position and welding method the welding sample should include.

Do you want to know more? Then you will contact us on 08-684 118 00 or svetskurs@lundgrenab.se for date and price information. It is also possible to book training sessions or a custom one welding course before the welding test.

Welding methods

When welding, there are different methods and techniques to choose from. Common is that you use an electric or gas welder or a combined welder. The most common welding methods are:

  • MIG / MAG
  • TIG
  • MMA
MIG / MAG

Gas Metal Arc Welding is better known as MIG or MAG weldingg and is one of the most common methods used today. A common method when it comes to home repairs, perhaps especially in cars and car plates. The methods are often used for welding aluminum and alloyed materials such as stainless steel. It can be used in all thicknesses of material and can be welded in all positions. The methods are fast and do not require much finishing work. However, the method is sensitive to rust and impurities that can cause pore formation in the weld. It is advisable to be indoors when using these methods as drafts can interfere with the welding process.

TIG

Gas welding or TIG welding is a fusion welding method named after the English name Tungsten Insert Gas. The method is slower than metal arc welding. The advantage of this welding method is that it can give more qualitative results. If you are going to do welding work where the end result should be visually appealing, TIG welding is a suitable method. It can be used on all weldable materials and is often used for welding thinner materials precisely because it is a slower welding method.

MMA welding

MMA welding (pin welding) means metal arc welding and is the most common welding method used in both construction and design forging. It is used for several different metals and can be made with simple equipment. It is therefore a suitable gateway to welding because it contains all the steps of welding but still has relatively simple equipment. MMA welding is suitable for outdoor use and not as weather sensitive as other welding methods. It is therefore often used in repairs. It requires a certain habit as the welding method is slow.

Welding event for the Steel Construction Institute's steel network

Svetsevent SBI

It was a successful welding event for the Steel Construction Institute's (SBI's) steel network for young designers. During the network meeting, 25 young designers got to try welding of nodes and discuss execution and design with experienced blacksmiths and project managers in forging & glass. During the evening, there was lots of welding, food and networking with exchanges of experience.

Something that the designers are thinking about a bit is what the smallest angle is that can be welded in general. In some cases, they may forget this… The participants therefore had to do a welding exercise with a 60 degree node that illustrated this. They can then have the exercise as a reference to see how close you get with a welding nozzle. The participants also received tips and advice based on our experiences and what they can think of that facilitates our work in the workshop and out on the construction site.

Read more about welding of nodes in the article about this in the magazine Stålbyggnad.

Do you want to know more about our welding events?

We arrange welding events for companies, associations and private individuals. During our welding events, participants can weld and / or manufacture objects by forging. We can arrange most things and it is only the imagination that sets the limits. We can also arrange food and drink. Do you want to know more? Then you should contact us on 08-684 118 27 and we will tell you more. You can also check out our regular course offerings.

We also have courses where the course participant must be able to pass an approved welding test in the selected welding method, dumb (sheet metal or pipe) or keel welding. At regular intervals we arrange welding tests. In addition to this, we organize welding events and metal crafts. You can also get help with a competence survey where we inventory the participant's welding competence and plan a course towards the desired welding level.

We turn to welding companies, institutes, private individuals and more. Both those who want to learn welding for home use or need a welding certificate can take a course with us.

Take a course during the day, or in the evening. We also have courses on weekends for you who have difficulty getting away on weekdays. We want welding to be available to everyone!

Upcoming course starts

Here you can see upcoming course starts. Contact Us if you do not find what you are looking for, we will help you arrange a course that suits your needs and wishes.

About our courses

“Well-organized, professional guidance. Can highly recommend this course! ”

Hanne's participants TIG welding a day course

“The best way to learn to weld. Start with a try on a course at Lundgrens. ”

Eric participant in the course Welding for beginners 1 opportunity

"Nice atmosphere and very nice teacher."

Carl participant in the course Welding for beginners

“If you want to learn something, you have to do it from those who work with it daily, and in their environment. So when I stepped into Lundgren's premises in Bromma, I felt that I had come to the right place. Full of people from all over who worked with everything from luxurious furnishings to gates and fences. I was well received and received first-class "hands-on" guidance during the training. A well-worth investment in yourself or your staff. ”

Marcus participant in TIG welding for beginners 5 occasions

“Good, thoroughly, got to learn some bonus techniques (secrets)! ;) ”

Daniel participant in TIG welding course

"Very instructive, Course leader who is good at showing how to do."

Mat's participants in the MIG course

Prospective drilling technicians learn to weld

The welding tables are lined up and arcs are lit in the welding workshop in Sumpan. Now, future drilling technicians will learn to weld. Seeing their focus is so much fun! 

For the second year in a row, we are holding the welding module in the drilling technician training. A total of 18 future drilling technicians will learn MMA welding (pin welding). The goal is for the participants to be able to weld in welding position PC lying vertically (tube standing) after completing the course. The course consists of theory, practical welding technology and methods that are adapted to the target group. It is mainly practically oriented and contains lots of welding hours. As far as possible, the course leader is based on the group's experience and prior knowledge. Since many of the participants have never welded before, they need to learn from the ground up. Learning to weld also requires some training! In order for the participants to reach the goal, they therefore need welding training in both keel, sheet metal and pipe welding. 

It feels extra fun to have the honor of holding the welding module again! Our hope is that it is the starting shot for a long collaboration around the welding part of the education.

Then Marco made an aluminum football

Marco has extensive experience in forging and is interested in football. He has worked at Lundgren's for over ten years, mostly in the forging workshop with the manufacture of fine forging products. Marco has a great interest in creation and got the idea that he would make a football in metal.

Marco started by searching for information on google and found a ball that he was inspired by. He drew up a sketch and thought through how he would go about getting the ball. Marco decided to make the ball in aluminum and took a 3 mm thick plate that he would cut into squares. He needed 20 hexagons and twelve pentagons for the ball. The hexagons would be slightly larger than those with five corners. Marco then made two different templates that he used when he made the squares using the scissors and the press brake.

Hexagons and pentagons as templates for forged football

Welding a football together

When all the squares were finished, he stapled the corners together. Then he welded the edges together. For welding aluminum, TIG welding is a good one and it was the one that Marco chose. It is suitable for thin materials, usually 0.5-5 mm wall thickness. The quality of TIG-welded products will be very high. To get the nice finish on the ball, he ground it to get it even and nice. The result was really good - a real craft!

Do you also want to create your own product?

Then you should come to spring metal craft where you can turn your idea into a finished product. Marco is one of the course leaders who guides and guides the participants. Marco also holds welding courses TIG, MIG / MAG and MMA welding (pin welding). Contact Us then we tell more.

Now we open the workshop in Sumpan again

Svetsning MMA fortsättning

Tonight we open the workshop in Sumpan for course activities in welding. Then it's time for the start of the course in MMA welding. A course that we hold in collaboration with Medborgarskolan since 2016. Hundreds of participants have attended the course. The course is practically oriented with the goal approved welding test MMA mode pb for keel joint. It is also possible to put welding tests in a more difficult situation for those who are skilled welders.

For eight weeks, participants will practice welding once a week. The course ends with a practical welding test when an accredited welding inspector supervises the testing. If the result is approved, the participant receives a personal welder test certificate. It is valid for 2 years, provided that the welder works in the area for which he or she is certified. The employer must prove this every 6 months. For some industries, welding testing is a requirement from authorities and for other industries it is a customer requirement.

Far from everyone who takes the course needs a welder certification certificate in their work, but many are hobby welders for private use. There are also many participants who dream of learning to weld who finally get to grips with it by taking a course. So the course is suitable for both those who already have experience of welding and those who want to learn something new.

The course is fully booked. We are therefore seeing if we can start another course this spring. Are you interested? Contact us in that case.

MMA course for drilling technicians

At the end of April, a group of future drilling technicians will begin their welding module in MMA welding. We look forward to receiving the participants and teaching them welding from the ground up. The participants need a lot of welding training to be able to weld in welding position PC lying vertically (tube standing) after completing the course.

Places left

At the same time as it is fully welded in Sumpan, we will also have course activities in our premises in Bromma. There are still some places left on upcoming welding courses this spring. See here for information and also registration.

Do you want your own organized course?

We also arrange different courses according to wishes and needs. Are you or your company looking for a course with specific wishes or needs? In that case, you should contact us and we will produce a proposal. We hold welding courses in MMA, MIG / MAG and TIG. Lundgren's also arranges metal handicraft as the participants can create their own objects in wrought iron. If you want, we can come out to you on site and hold a course.
