    What are the several types of welding and what is it employed for? If you are searching to get a 20,000 foot take a look at the differing types of welding as well as applications, stick around for the minute, I do think I will help.

    Stick welding

    Stick welding is usually called Arc welding although that is certainly a cute misnomer because TIG welding and MIG welding have been arc welding processes too. But ARC welding is exactly what most of the people still call stick welding. Stick welding could be the old style type of welding that grandpa used to do to correct his tractor within the barn. It works on the stick electrode just like a 6013, 6011, or 7018 welding rod that is chucked up in an electrode holder that appears a bit like a battery jumper cable clamp. The rod is struck just like a match to obtain the arc going as well as the rod is fed into the puddle mainly because it burns. Stick welding is fairly simple and easy the stick welding machine is straightforward too and also relatively inexpensively. You should buy a Lincoln 225 AC welding machine at any Home Depot for way less than 300 dollars.

    MIG welding

    Mig welding is known as among the easiest categories of welding to understand. Why? Because the rod doesn’t need being fed as it shortens as with stick welding. A wire is fed through a cable and your end with the mig welding gun and all the operator is needed to do would be to pull the trigger and weld. Sounds easy right? Well it isn’t that easy. It’s a tiny bit easier to learn than stick welding however only somewhat.

    Mig welding actually kind of describes 2 types of welding…bare wire mig, AND flux core welding.

    Bare wire mig is cleaner, and definately will weld thinner metal, but flux core is easier to make use of outdoors and will not require a cylinder of mig welding gas or a flow meter. Flux core welding is often either employed for cheap hobby welder s the location where the buyer will not want to pay the gas along with a gas conversion kit, and for really high quality applications like earth moving equipment and high production welding.

    TIG welding

    TIG welding is regarded as one of the more difficult kinds of~varieties of~different types of~different kinds of welding to learn…harder to understand than mig or stick welding. The reason being that both of your hands are needed to tig weld. One hand holds a tig torch having a tungsten electrode that delivers the arc and heat…and yet another hand feeds the rod. TIG welding products are generally higher priced and much more difficult to create since there is commonly a remote amperage control pedal included also it has a cylinder of argon or argon mix shielding gas to be effective.

    Tig welding is regarded as the versatile type of welding coming from all. Practically all conventional metals could be welded with all the tig process. Carbon and low alloy steels, metal, nickel alloys, aluminum, magnesium, titanium, cobalt, and copper alloys can all be welded using this type of welding.

    Plasma arc welding

    Plasma arc welding resembles tig welding other than the tungsten electrode is recessed in a very nozzle and also the heat is produced by ionizing gasses flowing throughout the arc. Plasma arc welding is utilized where high precision is required along with situations when a recessed electrode is useful. Plasma arc welding is employed extensively in aerospace applications for dimensional restoration of air seals and jet engine blade repair where thicknesses will often be below .015" and amperages used will often be single digit.

    Gas welding

    Gas welding is one of the old fashioned forms of welding. Oxygen and Acetylene is regarded as the popular setup for the gas welding kit and gas welding remains to be used a great deal for automotive exhaust applications, as well as by homebuilt airplane enthusiasts for welding 4130 chromoly tubing for airplane fuselages. It works. It’s portable. In fact it is fairly versatile… There are still many people that recommend gas welding even for welding aluminum.

    Some people think that tig welding is much better than gas welding. We are some of those people.

    Electron beam and laser welding.

    Most of these welding are thought high energy welding processes since they pinpoint heat so much better than older more conventional types of welding. Electron beam welding can penetrate through 6 inches of steel without the bevel.

    Laser welding can pinpoint heat so precisely that weld metal might be deposited on the tool steel injection mold cavity so precisely that heat treatments might be eliminated and just minimal machining is necessary in order to restore dimensions.
