Choosing the Best Welding Process for the Job
What many people don’t realize is that welding can be far more complicated than it looks from the outside. What material are you using? What are the physical properties of that material? What’s the application for the finished component? These are just some of the factors that can affect how the welding project needs to get done, and what kind of welding process a manufacturer will have to use.
Some welding processes work better with different materials
The properties of the material are one of the most important things to take into account before starting the jobs. As you’ll see later on, some welding processes work better with different materials. Different materials are better suited to different industries and applications, and the choice of material can affect the welding process. For example, one material that we work with, aluminum, is perfect for industries where a manufacturer may want to reduce weight.
Gas Metal Arc Welding & Gas Tungsten Arc Welding
One type of welding we do is called gas metal arc welding. It’s an ideal process to use when you’re working with materials like aluminum, carbon steel, and stainless steel. It’s also important to mention that this particular welding process is generally faster than some other processes. Another welding process is known as gas tungsten arc welding, which can be used with all of the materials that we work with, from aluminum to stainless steel and carbon steel. One notable thing about this welding technique is that it’s known for its finer technique and slower process.
Our extensive experience in this field ensures that we choose the best, most efficient technique every time. That’s why we can confidently say that we’re your one stop shop for any manual or robotic welding needs.
