  • Shielded Carbon-Arc Welding Aluminum Shielded Carbon-Arc Welding Aluminum. The shielded carbon-arc welding process can be used in joining aluminum. It requires flux and produces welds of the same appearance, soundness, and structure as those produced by either oxyacetylene or oxyhydrogen welding. Shielded carbon-arc welding is done both manually and automatically. A carbon arc is… Read more >>
  • Atomic Hydrogen Welding Aluminum Atomic Hydrogen Welding Aluminum. Atomic Hydrogen Welding Aluminum. This welding process consists of maintaining an arc between two tungsten electrodes in an atmosphere of hydrogen gas. The process can be either manual or automatic with procedures and techniques closely related to those used in oxyacetylene welding. Since the hydrogen shield… Read more >>
  • 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 >>
  • Oxy-Acetylene Welding of Copper, Brass & Bronze  Oxy-Acetylene Welding of Copper, Brass & Bronze Copper conducts heat more rapidly than any other commercial metal. It will oxidize very easily and this oxidation is not easily apparent to the operator, but the weld becomes very brittle. The melting point is under that of steel and iron, yet because… Read more >>
  • 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… Read more >>
  • Stud Welding Aluminum Stud Welding Aluminum. Stud welding Aluminum may be accomplished with conventional arc stud welding equipment, using either the capacitor discharge or drawn arc capacitor discharge techniques. The conventional arc stud welding process may be used to weld aluminum studs 3/16 to 3/4 in. (4.7 to 19.0 mm) diameter. The aluminum… Read more >>
  • Resistance Welding Aluminum Resistance Welding Aluminum Resistance Welding Aluminum. The resistance welding processes (spot, seam, and flash welding) are important in fabricating aluminum alloys. These processes are especially useful in joining the high strength heat treatable alloys, which are difficult to join by fusion welding, but can be joined by the resistance welding… Read more >>
  • 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 >>
  • Electron Beam Welding Aluminum Electron Beam Welding Aluminum. Electron beam welding is a fusion joining process in which the workpiece is bombarded with a dense stream of high velocity electrons, and virtually all of the kinetic energy of the electrons is transformed into heat upon impact. Electron beam welding usually takes place in an… 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 Titanium Welding Titanium   (1) Titanium is a soft, silvery white, medium strength metal with very good corrosion resistance. It has a high strength to weight ratio, and its tensile strength increases as the temperature decreases. Titanium has low impact and creep strengths. It has seizing tendencies at temperatures above 800°F… Read more >>
  • Welding Nickel and Monel Welding Nickel and Monel *Nickel *is a hard, malleable, ductile metal. Nickel and its alloys are commonly used when corrosion resistance is required. Nickel and nickel alloys such as Monel can, in general, be welded by metal-arc and gas welding methods. Some nickel alloys are more difficult to weld due… Read more >>
  • Welding Magnesium **Welding magnesium. **Magnesium is a white, very lightweight, machinable, corrosion resistant, high strength metal. It can be alloyed with small quantities of other metals, such as aluminum, manganese, zinc and zirconium, to obtain desired properties. It can be welded by most of the welding processes used in the metal working… Read more >>
  • Welding Copper Welding Copper Copper and copper-base alloys have specific properties which make them widely used. Their high electrical conductivity enable their use in the electrical industries, and the corrosion resistance of certain alloys makes them very useful in the process industries. Copper alloys are also widely used for friction or bearing… Read more >>
  • Welding Brass and Bronze Welding brass and bronze can be accomplish using a number of welding processes. Brass and bronze are alloys of copper. Brass has zinc, and bronze has tin as the major alloying elements. However, some bronze metals contain more zinc than tin, and some contain zinc and no tin at all…. 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.
