The working of a metal fabrication industry involves bending, cutting and reassembling of metals to create new products and beautiful designs. It also involves designing and manufacturing machines using various raw materials. Their work involves many processes for creating the finished product. These include cutting, welding, forming and designing. Welding is an integral part of this process, which is why good welding equipment and tools are in high demand in this industry.
The two main processes in which the welding machine comes in handy are cutting and reassembling of metal parts. Though cutting the metals can also be done using saws, shears and chisels, modern multi-purpose welders are equally effective in carrying out this process efficiently.
As far as reassembling of the metals is concerned, this is done using a welder. The final design of the blueprint can only be achieved with meticulous welding. Many different types of welders are used for this task in fabrication units. The welder used depends on the type of welding method being used. The three common types of welders are:
Other than these there are other welding methods like Flux-Cored Arc Welding (FCAW) and Submerged Arc Welding (SAW) that are widely used in industrial fabrication units. The welders used for such processes are not suitable for home or workshop use. Multipurpose welders that integrate MMA, TIG, and MIG welders described above have also gained popularity in the metal fabrication industry.
