TIG - Tungsten Inert Gas
Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), also known as tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding, is an arc welding process that uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to produce the weld. The weld area and electrode are protected from oxidation or other atmospheric contamination by an inert shielding gas (argon or helium).to add your own content, or connect to data from your collections.
Arc welding is a welding process that is used to join metal to metal by using electricity to create enough heat to melt metal, and the melted metals when cool result in a binding of the metals. It is a type of welding that uses a welding power supply to create an electric arc between a metal stick ("electrode") and the base material to melt the metals at the point of contact. Arc welders can use either direct (DC) or alternating (AC) current, and consumable or non-consumable electrodes.
Repair welding is a commonly used technique in which the cracked material is removed by arc gouging and the element is welded to re-join the material on either side of the crack.
MIG - Metal Inert Gas
MIG welding is an arc welding process in which a continuous solid wire electrode is fed through a welding gun and into the weld pool, joining the two base materials together. A shielding gas is also sent through the welding gun and protects the weld pool from contamination. In fact, MIG stands for metal inert gas.
Computer Numerical Control
A plasma cutting torch is a commonly used tool for cutting metals for a wide variety of purposes. A hand-held plasma torch is an excellent tool for quickly cutting through sheet metal, metal plates, straps, bolts, pipes, etc. Hand-held plasma torches also make an excellent gouging tool, for back-gouging weld joints or removing defective welds. A hand torch can be used for cutting small shapes from steel plate, but it’s impossible to get good enough part accuracy or edge quality for most metal fabrication. That is why a CNC plasma is necessary.
Welding on a jobsite
Field weld is something that is performed during final installation of a part, equipment, member. Certain Engineering Designs use both Shop welds and field welds to address the Project objectives. This way they are able to finish a project within the timeline.
