Welding is a common part of many industries, including construction. Melding metals is a must at any construction site, and a variety of welding equipment in a range of sizes is available to handle any welding need.
Different types of welding meet different construction needs. The three most common are arc, MIG and TIG welding.
Arc welding uses a power supply to create and maintain an electric arc between an electrode and the base material to melt metals at the welding point. Sometimes called stick welding, this method commonly is used to weld thin sections of steel, since it is the process that enables the greatest control over the weld.
MIG welding — metal inert gas — uses electricity to melt and join pieces of metal. This typically is the fastest method of welding.
TIG welding — tungsten inert gas — is similar to arc welding, as it produces heat through an arc of electricity jumping from an electrode to the metal surfaces. This technique typically is used to weld copper, titanium or dissimilar metals, and is handy for making tricky welds such as curves.
Fabrication and repair is a vital part of construction and industrial needs, often demanding the ability to weld where electrical outlets are unavailable. Gas- or diesel-powered welders are an ideal solution to any project to keep the work moving.
