Common Welding Options Fabrication Companies Use

FabTechIntSteel is one of the strongest materials used to create different structures, from small homes, building, up to huge skyscrapers and bridges. In order to create all of these items, it is important to make sure that steel is properly connected. Thus, fabricators make use of the right welding option that can suit every client’s needs. To know more about these welding options, below are some of the following.

Shielded Metal Arc Welding

Shielded metal arc welding is commonly known as the “Stick Welding”. This type of welding is a manual arc welding process that uses a consumable electrode covered with a flux to lay the weld.

Gas Tungsten Arc Welding

Gas Tungsten arc welding known as Tig Welding is an arc welding process that uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to produce the weld. This type of welding is commonly used to weld thin sections of stainless steel and non-ferrous metals such as aluminum, magnesium, and copper alloys.

Gas Metal Arc Welding

Gas metal arc welding is known as MIG or MAG welding. This type of welding creates an electric arc forms between a consumable wire electrode and the workpiece metal , which heats the workpiece metal causing them to melt and join.

Flux-Cored Arc Welding

Flux-cored arc welding is a semi-automatic or automatic arc welding process. Therefore, it requires a continuously-fed consumable tubular electrode containing a flux and a constant-voltage.

Submerged Arc Welding

Submerged arc welding is a process is normally limited to the flat or horizontal-fillet welding positions. Not to mention, submerged arc welding can be operated in automatic or mechanized mode. And, semi-automatic SAW guns with pressurized or gravity flux feed delivery are available.
