TIG Welding or Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) is a commonly used welding process that is used when high quality, clean and precise welds are required.
MIG welding with shielding gas helps produce high quality welds as you prevent the weld pool from being exposed to elements in the atmosphere which will contaminate the weld and produce weld defects including porosity and spatter.
There are different types of MIG welding gas to choose from, all suitable to different requirements. This guide explains how to find the right shielding gas mix by explaining the gases available and their properties.
This is a quick reference guide on how to use a welding fillet gauge. Welding gauges are probably one of the more underused tools in a welder’s arsenal. Many other manuals do not do justice in explaining how to use a welding fillet gauge properly. Improper use of a welding fillet gauge can cost you countless hours of headache and extra work.
MIG welding is a common type of welding that’s become increasingly popular throughout welding applications over the past 40 years. MIG welding uses a gun that continuously feeds a consumable wire electrode. The wire is surrounded by a gas shield to protect the weld pool from contamination.
MIG has a number of benefits including being fast, easy to perform, high electrode efficiently and less welding fumes. Popular MIG welding applications include, automotive repairs, construction, robotics, fabrication and pipe welding. Read More
Welding aluminum is much more challenging that welding steel due to the different characteristics of the metal. Aluminum is different to steel because it melts at around 1200 degrees but is coated with an oxide layer that melts at around 3700 degrees.Read More
