A Quick Guide to Welding

Welding refers to a metal fabrication process where you adjoin two or more pieces of metal materials together using extreme heat. The temperature must be hot enough to melt the metal pieces so they can be fused together during the cooling process.

The three forms of welding are arc welding, TIG welding, and MIG welding. Arc welding is different than the other two because it uses a metal stick with an electric arc at the end of it. People love arc welding because they can do it outside without wind interference. On the other hand, TIG and MIG welding are affected by wind, which is why they have gas cylinders attached to prevent airbourne contamination.

Of course, the concept of melting the metal pieces with an electric arc still applies to all three. All welding requires extreme heat to melt and adjoin metal, especially to form a metal joint. Most people don’t think about how welding is used in virtually all industries, such as automotive and construction.

All kinds of metal materials can be welded, such as aluminium, iron, steel, nickel, copper, lead, tin, and titanium. The most commonly used metal structures consist of welded materials, including stairways, gates, fencing, building frameworks, kitchen appliances, and so on.
