Choosing Highly Skilled WeldersThe integrity and reliability of the welded materials, products, or structures are highly dependent on the skills of the welder. You must choose a shop with competent and properly certified welders. These people know the different welding techniques and will use the most appropriate method to ensure the quality of their work. Welders with lengthy experience in the craft are capable of working on various types of metals and complex project requirements.
Welding Types and MethodsThere are different types of welding methods that are commonly used for metal fabrication. The most commonly used methods to join, cut, or fabricate metals are MIG, TIG, arc, and gas welding. Your service provider should have the necessary equipment and properly trained crews to be able to perform these methods accurately and efficiently.
Here are the differences of each method and its proper application:
- GMAW or gas metal arc welding. This is commonly called as “MIG welding” and has been widely used in the industry. This method is most suited for fusing mild steel, aluminum, and stainless steel. GMAW is also recommended for thinner sheet metals and alloys.
- SMAW or arc welding. This type is also referred to as stick or arc welding. It is commonly used for construction, manufacturing, and repair jobs. Professional welders use this type to weld thicker metals.
- GTAW or Tungsten inert gas. GTAW or TIG welding is best applied for projects that require high-quality, superior finish. This type doesn't need an excessive clean up by grinding or sanding. The welder should be an expert in this aspect to assure clients of outstanding results.
