Arc Welding

Arc Welding

Arc welding is a fusion welding technique that uses an electric arc to weld two or more workpieces. It is one of the most commonly used welding methods today. It may be done manually, automatically or semi-automatically. The electrode used in arc welding may be consumable or non-consumable. Metal Inert gas welding is an arc [...]

Welding - Introduction and Types

Welding – Introduction and Types

Life is made of ever so many partings welded together. -Charles Dickens Welding is a metal joining process that is used for joining two or more similar metallic workpieces (or thermoplastics) by the application of heat. It finds its application in a large number of industrial processes. Welding can be done either by melting and solidifying [...]

Tungsten Inert Gas Welding (TIG Welding)

Tungsten Inert Gas Welding (TIG Welding)

Tungsten Inert Gas Welding (TIG Welding), also known as Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW), is an arc welding method that uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to weld two or more workpieces. It is very much similar to Metal Inert Gas (MIG) Welding. Diagram of Tungsten Inert Gas Welding: Components used in Tungsten Inert Gas Welding [...]

Metal Inert Gas Welding (MIG Welding)

Metal Inert Gas Welding (MIG Welding)

Metal Inert Gas (MIG) Welding (also known as Gas Metal Arc Welding [GMAW]) is an arc welding technique in which a consumable electrode is used to weld two or more workpieces. A diagrammatic representation of metal inert gas welding is shown below: Components used in Metal Inert Gas Welding (MIG Welding): Metal Inert Gas Welding [...]
