Industrial Welding Services

Optimation journeymen welders have the equipment and expertise to provide portable welding for onsite services as well as welding needs for machine and system requirements in our Rochester, NY shop. Our welding team has a systems mindset, working with our pipe fitters, sheet metal workers and millwrights.

Two Certified Welding Inspectors work with customers to set up certified welding processes and guarantee weld quality. The welding team is accustomed to working in man-baskets and aerial lifts; welding requirements in high places are not a problem for us. Additionally, the team has hot-tap pipe line experience; we can tap into a variety of utilities (water, steam,condensate, air) without shutting down production. Prior to performing any hot tap services, we first perform a pipe thickness and integrity check. Working with local utility companies, we can also support hot tap for natural gas. 

Clients can not only rely on our team to build from their design, but also to suggest improvements. Our team can provide assistance during design reviews, working from sketches and verbal concepts, as well as formal designs. Based on our efficiency and skill, machine and sheet metal shops come to us to provide their welding services. 


Dedicated Stainless Steel Welding Area

For clients who require stainless steel welding services for sanitary process piping in industries such as chemical, food and beverage, and pharmaceutical, Optimation's shop includes a 9,075-square-foot space for stainless-steel. The space provides a haven for all aspects of the stainless-steel fabrication process, such as handling, grinding, welding, and storage.  

In shops that handle both carbon and stainless steel, activities such as handling stainless on a steel work bench, grinding steel in an adjacent bay, or lifting the stainless with steel lifting hardware can all introduce contamination, and Optimation has taken steps to avoid these common pitfalls. With this dedicated welding area and extra attention paid to the process, we reduce the contamination risk and can now provide our clients with a higher quality product.
