Types of Welding Processes – Part 2


Types of Welding Processes – Part 2, We have gone through 2 prominent types of welding process in the previous article, now we will be discussing about TIG welding as well as Flux Cored Arc Welding. As Stick welding and MIG welding are very important form of welding and used with different industries so are the newly mentioned TIG and flux coat.
3. TIG welding  or “Tungsten Inert Gas” and is also recognized as “Gas Tungsten Arc Welding”. If you have mastery over MIG welding and stick Welding in that case, implicating TIG will be easy, else it can be bit difficult to master it. The reason of difficulty is because it requires both hands for welding. The role of two hands is utterly important as one hand holds up the TIG torch with tungsten electrode which provides the heat and the arc, whereas other hand feeds the rod. Comparing the cost of TIG equipment with others, it is expensive due to the remote amperage foot pedal included and argon mix shielding gas to work.
This welding method is considered as the most versatile as all kind of metals can be welded with this conventional process for instance Carbon and low alloy steels, stainless steel, nickel alloys, aluminum, magnesium, titanium, cobalt any many more are in the endless list.

  1. FCAW commonly known as “Flux Cored Arc Welding”, is technically different from the core welding processes discussed earlier. This is a different type of electrode, specifically used in MIG welding machine. It allows the electrode to weld without using an external shielding gas. In FCAW two types of electrodes are used. The first one is self – shielding and the second is dual shielding. The former one is an electrode that does not need any shielding gas. It is almost like a Stick welding electrode turned inside out. FCAW is maximum used in shipyards or a places that has thick metals and requires lots of welding to be done.

Henceforth, we conclude the types of welding processes with this article.

      Thanks for the braiding directions. I had some pretty insipid apples, so I caramelized them, added a splash of orange blossom water and they were divine! Thanks for the inrposatiin. Waiting to see how the brisket turns out as well.

  2. Very good written article. It will be helpful to anyone who employess it, as well as me. Keep up the good work – i will definitely read more posts.

      What an amazing crew is that. I do not care so much about why wo&#1ma82n7;s percentage is more , i care about you have 10 people form 7 different countries. Thats the point. i justadore your workers i hope i will have a chance to having a working place like that international mixture. Just awesome.Do you need somebody from Turkey ? = )
