TIG Welding 4130 Chromoly Tubing

TIG welding 4130 chromoly tubing can be achieved with good results provided right welding techniques are used. 4130 Chromoly steel has an excellent strength to weight ratio, is easily welded, and is considerably stronger and harder than standard 1018 steel. The 4130 grade of Chromoly or chrome-moly is a high-strength low-alloy (HSLA) steel that contains … Read more

TIG Welding Stainless Steel: Gas Coverage

Using the appropriate type and amount of shielding gas is an important way to prevent carbide precipitation when TIG welding stainless steel. Typically, pure argon provides the best results when welding thinner austenitic stainless steel, but the addition of small percentages of helium is not uncommon when better penetration and faster travel speeds are desired, … Read more

Pipe Welding Process

Pipe Welding :  General The most commonly used processes for joining pipes are the manual oxyacetylene process and manual shielded metal-arc process. Automatic and semiautomatic submerged arc, inert gas metal-arc, and atomic hydrogen welding are also used. particularly in shop operations. The manual shielded metal-arc process may be used for welding all metals used in … Read more

TIG Welding Aluminum DC Electrode Negative

When TIG welding aluminum, direct current straight polarity (DCSP) is the most commonly used. This article seeks to discuss welding techniques, joint designs, and types of aluminum alloys that can be welded, when TIG welding aluminum with DCEN (or direct current electrode negative). Note that DCEN and DCSP are same. Characteristic Of TIG Welding Aluminum … Read more

TIG Welding Aluminum With Direct Current Straight Polarity (DCSP)

Characteristic Of TIG Welding Aluminum With Direct Current Straight Polarity In this process, using helium and thoriated tungsten electrodes is advantageous for many automatic welding operations, especially in the welding of heavy sections. Since there is less tendency to heat the electrode, smaller electrodes can be used for a given welding current. This will contribute … Read more

Sections Of A Weld

The following terms are used to describe the parts or sections of a weld: Fusion Zone (Filler Penetration) The fusion zone is the area of base metal melted as determined in the cross-section of a weld. Leg Of A Fillet Weld The leg of a fillet weld is the distance from the root of the joint … Read more

Miller Diversion 165: Ac/Dc TIG Welder

Miller TIG Welder Diversion 165 AC/DC TIG Welder has an Easy-to-understand operator interface. The machine has only three switches with which the welder needs to operate the machine: Power switch Material selection switch Amperage control/material selection switch The power source is inverter-based, that works with AC and DC equally well. It has little down time. The … Read more

Oxy acetylene Aluminum Welding

While aluminum has a melting point less than half that of steel, its conductivity is over three times as great, so we use a tip about the same size for this metal as we do for steel, and because of this conductivity, we should realize that the effects of expansion and contraction must be particularly guarded against, … Read more
