• Electroslag Welding Aluminum Electroslag Welding Aluminum. Electroslag welding is used for joining pure aluminum, but is not successful for welding the aluminum alloys. Submerged arc welding has been used in some countries where inert gas is not available. p. Other processes. Most of the solid state welding processes, including friction welding, ultrasonic welding,... Read more >>
  • TIG Welding Aluminum DC Electrode Negative TIG Welding Aluminum DC Electrode Negative Does your TIG welding machine have enough amperage to weld thick Aluminum? Are you tired of pre-heating only to find that your tungsten cannot withstand the constant AC arc? Direct Current Electrode Negative (DCEN) or DC(-) TIG welding Aluminum. There are no short cuts...

  • Can your welding machine TIG weld Aluminum? Can your welding machine TIG weld Aluminum? A considerable number of our clients ask about welding machine requirements in order to TIG weld aluminum. TIG weld Aluminum with Direct Current Electrode Positive (DCEP) or DC(+) *Can you *TIG weld aluminum without AC and a High Frequency box? **Yes, you can... Read more >>
  • TIG welding versus MIG welding TIG welding versus MIG welding machines MIG welding machines can make quick work of those around the house projects.  With a basic configuration you have your MIG welding machine set up with “gasless” filler material commonly known as “Flux Core“.  It welds ok, but you find that if you want “clean” results...

  • TIG Welding Aluminum TIG Welding Aluminum The TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) arc welding process is used for welding the thinner sections of aluminum and aluminum alloys. There are several precautions that should be mentioned with respect to using this process. Alternating current is recommended for general-purpose work since it provides the half-cycle of...

  • MIG Welding Aluminum MIG Welding Aluminum is a fast, adaptable process that is used with direct current reverse polarity and an inert gas to weld heavier thicknesses of aluminum alloys, in any position, from 1/16 in. (1.6 mm) to several inches thick. Shielding gas for MIG Welding Aluminum. Precautions should be taken to ensure... Read more >>
  • Arc Welding Aluminum : How to Stick Weld Aluminum When arc welding aluminum with the shielded metal-arc welding (SMAW) process, a heavy dipped or extruded flux coated electrode is used with DC Reverse Polarity (DCRP). The electrodes are covered similarly to conventional steel electrodes. The flux coating provides a gaseous shield around the arc and molten aluminum puddle, and chemically... Read more >>
  • Gas Welding Aluminum Gas Welding Aluminum. Aluminum is readily joined by welding, brazing, and soldering. In many instances, aluminum is joined with the conventional equipment and techniques used with other metals. However, specialized equipment or techniques may sometimes be required. The alloy, joint configuration, strength required, appearance, and cost are factors dictating the choice... Read more >>
  • Welding Aluminum Welding Aluminum Aluminum is a lightweight, soft, low strength metal which can easily be cast, forged, machined, formed and welded. Unless alloyed with specific elements, it is suitable only in low temperature applications. Aluminum is light gray to silver in color, very bright when polished, and dull when oxidized. A...
