Metal Cutting with CNC Plasma Cutting Water Table

We weld, we grind, we help clients get expert metal designs. If you have large scale structural steel substation projects or custom designs to be cut – Pro Weld’s CNC plasma cutting machine can do it. Our welding team is cross-trained on most of our equipment – which includes the cnc plasma cutting table.

Pro Weld, Inc.’s welding team offers expert fabrication, with the option of CNC plasma cutting as an add-on to their welding job services.

When it comes to small metal parts, Pro Weld finds ways to offer the CNC plasma services. With every CNC cutting service performed, there is an increase in productivity. The parts that are typically hand-cut are efficiently plasma cut out of metals with Pro Weld’s computer-ran CNC plasma cutting machine.

The Southern Oregon, women-owned metal company is known for its welding performance and expertise in metal fabrication. Yet, they are now cutting out a reputation with its cnc plasma cutting services. There have been discussions about adding more shifts to keep the cnc plasma table cutting for a solid 16+ hours to meet metal production and growth demands.

CNC Plasma design to cutting at Pro Weld metal shop

The cnc plasma table was built in house by Pro Weld’s owners and welding team. The current table is the first model build at Pro Weld, which will soon be dwarfed by a much larger cnc plasma cutting table. The cnc table is color-themed: red and blue to match the company logos. The contrasting white welding shop walls, and reflective water table make for an iconic representation of the bold US American flag.

The plasma table is designed in a tank-table style. There are several key reasons for the cnc plasma to be a water table. Simply put, a cnc plasma water table reduces: heat-distortion, dust, plasma table cost, noise, arc flashes, and keeps all metal at a lower temperature. The cooler temperature helps avoids metals warping at all times.

The Pro Weld built water cnc plasma table is constructed to raise or lower water levels. This feature gives the cnc plasma operator the ability to submerge the plate by adjusting the water. This adjustable water level option is great for the various types of cutting this cnc plasma table can do.

Pro Weld utilizes the CNC plasma machine whenever it expedites metal cutting and welding fabrication production times. Our welding crew is more industrious and efficient because of the speed. The accuracy of the CNC plasma cutting table is near to impossible to mirror by hand.

“We’re continuing to find innovative ways to make welding jobs efficient. Having this cnc plasma cutter has been a game changer and great tool for our welding team. We’re excited about Pro Weld’s continued growth.” remarked Penny Oberlander, co-founder and certified welder.

The unparalleled CNC plasma cutting table allows fabricators to keep welding as the CNC machine does the intricate cuts. The minimization of metal waste and increase in material usefulness is impressive. Pro Weld’s CNC plasma table is a water table.

It’s like wow – now I don’t have hand-cramps. The CNC plasma cutting table is fast, precise and accurate. Each welding project is expedited with a few clicks thanks to the plasma table,” stated one Pro Weld employee.

Water Table Functionality
Pro Weld, Inc. opted to fabricate their own CNC Plasma Water Table. Their welding team worked closely with co-owner Jim Oberlander to insure every aspect of the table perfectly matched Pro Weld’s industrial and structural metal project demands.

The CNC cutting table can hold a 7′ by 12′ sheet of metal up to 1-1/2″ thick. All types of designs and materials have been processed on this table. In 2020 alone, Pro Weld’s welding company has cut base plates, grates (as seen in above video) and other trick designs for custom welding jobs.

Our only limit is imagination. We’ll be finishing our secondary CNC plasma cutting table sometime this year. It’ll be twice the size – doubling our capacity. Our welding team is stoked,” says Jim Oberlander, co-owner and master fabricator of 40+ years.

Welding in a Sea of Substation Steel Structures

Pro Weld’s Team Enjoys the Technical Structural Steel Challenges

Certified welding by owner Jim Oberlander
Jim Oberlander, certified welding expert and co-owner of Pro Weld in White City Oregon.

This week Pro Weld, Inc.’s welding team has seen a rise in their steel structure fabrication and welding speeds. In the vibrant US economy, this Women-Owned Enterprise has put their welding crew to task. In November, Pro Weld bid for an out-of-state steel substation structural project – and won the award. All substation steel structures will be completed ahead of the contracted on-site delivery times before February for a massive structural project.

“Our crew knows the pressure is on when the steel arrives. It’s awesome seeing them rise to the occasion and in excellence day-by-day. Our certified welders are up for any challenge.”

Stated co-owner Jim Oberlander, who constantly coaches and leads the way at Pro Weld.
Gavin Frazier, certified welding employee pumps out the welds as he joins metals on this substation steel.
Certified welding is the name of the game. Precision and excellence – just a few reasons why Gavin Frazier likes his job.

The sheer sizes of steel structures, let alone the fraction of tolerance of error is incredible. Yet this challenge to the welding crew is nothing to worry about. The welding team welcomes structural steel substations and projects that others must turn down. Pro Weld has a reputation for spotting mathematical, and various building errors on AutoCAD and blueprint errors – before they are fabricated and set in steel.

Substation steel structures have to be precise for the jobsite outside of the state of Oregon.
Welding Substation Steel Structures requires numeric accuracy and metal excellence. Pro Weld offers exactly what the job demands.

“Jim just called the engineer to explain a major issue in the blueprint that made the substation steel structurally unsound. It’s cool to see that in one call – Jim’s revisions, saved our welding team and our client from major project setbacks. ”

Says Pro Weld, Inc. employee Bob Reed, a certified welding tradesman.
Bob Reed is good at his welding job. He's been a certified welder helping Pro Weld for many years.
Steel moving – Bob Reed uses a 5 ton overhead crane to move the structural steel. Just another aspect of the technical skills required while welding at Pro Weld, Inc.

“We’re great at providing competitive bids, accurate welding and quick deliveries on steel structures. Substation projects are one of dozens of welding projects that Pro Weld’s fabrication team does well. Excellence is what galvanizes our reputation in the metal industry.”

Says co-owner Penny Oberlander beaming with joy.

In past years, Pro Weld has taken on substation steel structures for major PUE companies throughout the nation. These structures can amount to anywhere from 2,000 lbs. of steel to more than 100,000 lbs. of galvanized substation steel structures. Big or small, this Oregon family-owned company take on all sizes of structural steel projects.

We simply look for individuals with an attitude of excellence in their aptitude… and with that their future is their to build.”

Jim Oberlander of co-owner says of his metal work and employee training excellence.

The metal industry has more than two dozen ways of welding, from high-tech welding to rudimentary oxy-fuel welding. Yet, the most seen welding at Pro Weld is MIG, TIG and the job-specific Flux-Cored Arc Welding yet you’ll occasionally see stick welding. Truly we can do it all. We’ve listed a few welding industry’s terms for your structural steel and welding jobs.

Welding is just one component of the fabrication process at Pro Weld, Inc.

For those familiarizing themselves with welding here are a few key terms:
(*Warning : There’s boring welding-jargon below)

MIG Welding – Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) 

  • A welding process that applies shielding gas along a wire electrode causing the two metals to heat merging the two metals into one. This is the most used welding process and is fueled by a direct-current source with constant voltage to create the welding bond between metals.

TIG Welding – Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW/TIG)

  • This welding method is specifically used on non-ferrous metals, and stainless steel. The welding industry refers to style as “arc-welding” as it uses a tungsten electrode to form the weld bead. The steps involved makes it a more time-intensive and complex method of welding.

Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW)

  • A welding method known for being a manual metal arc style of welding. The arc welding uses a consumable electrode (which is a long wand like “stick”) . This stick is covered with a flux to create the weld. Classically shield metal arc welding is used for iron jobs, heavy-duty and industrial steel type jobs.
AWS Welding Jobs
Pro Weld offers AWS certified welders for every project.

Flux-Cored Arc Welding (FCAW)

  • This is a semi-automatic process type of arc welding. A continuous-voltage is required with a consumable tubular electrode hosting a flux. This type of welding has a resemblance to MIG welding as both methods use a filler wire as an electrode to get the arc. The basic difference between MIG welding and Flux-cored Welding is the manner in which the electrode is shielded from the air. Since the flux-core gets shielding from the air – it is the most used weld for outdoor welding where there is high winds.
  • Just know that Pro Weld, Inc. is here for you. We love showing excellence in the industrial metal construction projects and structural steel welding builds. We seek to offer efficiency and excellence in welding and metal services. You will be highly satisfied with our team’s capacity to seamlessly work alongside your engineers, drafters, generals and management teams and investors.

PW Employee learning welding trade draws KOBI NBC5’s cameras to Pro Weld, Inc. facility

What an exciting week at Pro Weld, Inc. Our very own employee and Eagle Point High School Senior Gavin Frazier sparked
KOBI NBC5 New’s attention through his eager tradeskill learning. Not even 24-hours earlier, he caught the eye of EPHS’ District 9 staff which secured the “Student Spotlight” post on the District’s Eagle Point Facebook Page.

HS student gets hands-on welding experience
Local News Regional Top Stories Video December 4, 2019  Anna Weeks  Eagle Point High Schoolpro weldsouthern Oregontradesmenweldingwhite city

WHITE CITY, Ore. — A senior at Eagle Point High School is getting hands on experience, while still getting school credit.

“It’s like your own world when you put your helmet down,” Gavin said.
After taking a metals class his sophomore year, Gavin Frazier said he found his passion: welding. Now, he is getting school credit while working part time at Pro Weld in White City.

“I don’t really like sitting down in class, and just like, listening to a teacher,” Gavin said.

Instead, Gavin decided to get hands-on experience in the field. When Pro Weld owners James and Penny Oberlander were put in contact with the teen, they saw a certain spark.

“It’s been great to watch him grow and at his age he’ll, if he continues, he’ll be one of those Prima Donnas when he’s like 40 probably,” Penny said.

KOBI NBC5s Image of Gavin Frazier Welding at Pro Weld, Inc.

He’s been working at Pro Weld part time since July. After Gavin’s done with class, he heads over to the shop to learn from the pros.

“He’s learning the whole gamut. How to rig, how to take these overhead cranes and turn stuff over and how to do structural welding,” James said.

“When your hood goes down, all your focus on is where you’re welding and it’s like whatever is going on behind you, it really doesn’t matter,” Gavin said.

Some of his the projects he has worked on can already be seen around town, from bike racks to a bridge being built in Ashland.

“Actually having to get the tools out and actually have to lift the beam and be literally there, the hands-on experience, then you really get the this is how it’s really done cause they actually did do it,” James said.

Co-Owner of Pro Weld, Inc., Penny Oberlander instructing Gavin on welding design during KOBI NBC5’s interview with Anna Weeks.

The Oberlanders told me there’s a lack of tradesmen in the work force. Getting students interested in welding early, ensures there will be great welders to come. They say there instincts were right, this teen is different.
“It doesn’t matter if it’s in metric, if it’s in a different language, he can just by sight look at it and get it started and adjusted and that’s, that’s a pretty good statement,” James said.

After he graduates high school, Gavin wants to make this his career. His dream?  To become an iron worker.
