What is meant by Welding?
Welding is the process of joining metal parts through the application of heat, pressure, and filler metal. Metal Welding can be done manually with an oxy-acetylene torch or C02 laser, but the most common welding practice is arc welding. In this process, electricity is used to produce heat that melts the metals that are being joined together.
Welding metal together usually produces a joint that has greater strength than the original metal from which the part was made. This can be used to join metals or non-metals, depending on the filler metal used, and is done in various industries such as construction, automotive repair, shipbuilding, aircraft maintenance, commercial fishing industry and equipment repair.
Metal Welding can be carried out on steel, cast iron, malleable iron, copper alloys, aluminium, brass or bronze, but the material must be strong enough to endure the heat and pressure of welding.
What is the strongest type of weld to use?
The strongest type of weld to use is a TIG Weld. This type of weld has been proven to have a solid bond that can handle the most pressure from weight and from tension.
The TIG Welding process will require a special machine that can control the amount of heat that is being transferred.
