Disposable Welding Gas

Disposable Gas Bottles and their Immense Benefits

9 Nov , 2016  

Use of inert and other active gases is common in various types of welding processes and welders are often confused about whether to buy a disposable gas cylinder or to hire a big cylinder from the supplier. There are so any reasons that will encourage a welder to buy a disposable gas cylinder instead of hiring a big one. Disposable gas cylinders or bottles are highly useful for DIY stuff and not so often uses. Welders who do not take welding jobs on the everyday basis should prefer disposable gas bottles as they come with so many advantages. More…

Normal Basics of Using Single-phase MIG Welder

9 Nov , 2016  

A single-phase power supply is the most common forms of mains supply. It is only in industrial units and manufacturing plants that you will find a three-phase power supply. Most small and medium businesses run on single-phase power supply as well. It thus makes sense to have a good idea about machines that are available in both single-phase and three-phase versions. Welders are common examples of such machines.  More…

Welding Helmets and Safety

The Many Advantages of Using a Welding Helmet

9 Nov , 2016  

The welding helmet is a protective headgear that is used in most types of welding and metal cutting processes to protect the user from UV rays, heat, sparks, and burns. It protects the face, eyes, and other exposed parts of the neck. These helmets are commonly used with arc welding processes. They are a must to prevent the ‘arc eye,’ a condition that occurs in the human eye when the cornea of the eye is inflamed. Welding helmets can also prevent retina burns that can cause severe damage to the eye and even loss of eyesight. More…

TIG Welding

Simple Guidelines on Using AC/DC TIG Welders

9 Nov , 2016  

TIG welding is a skill that needs time and a considerable amount of practice to be developed. It requires patience and practice. TIG welding is generally used to weld metals alloys like copper, stainless steel and Titanium and it can also be used to weld two dissimilar metals. This process is highly useful for tricky welds and typical welding shapes like S-shapes, curves, and corners where the welds are highly visible and accuracy and finish are required. It creates high-quality welds and a wide range of metals can be welded with it.  More…

However, it provides various advantages and is a coveted skill among both professional and amateur welders. Skilled TIG welders can accomplish advanced operations and are always in demand in an ever growing industry. However, TIG welding is not a difficult skill to learn. While professional courses always help, it can also be learnt on one’s own. More…

MIG Welding

Purchasing the Best MIG Welder in Brisbane Online

12 Aug , 2016  

Upgrading to MIG welding setup will allow professional welders to expand their services as well as offer high-quality results to their customers. MIG welding has a wide number of uses, often only limited by creativity. MIG welders also have high duty cycles and in conjunction with high deposition rates, they allow a user to work efficiently and fast. There is also little need for post weld cleaning and almost none for post weld brushing or grinding. This translates to higher productivity and higher return on investment. They are equally good in a permanent workshop as they are in a portable setup that is commonly seen in industries like agriculture, mining, etc. More…
