All these welding methods are done on the two base metals to permanently fasten them together to withstand the applicable loads. choosing the best welding joint is also a crucial task for welder. In this […]
How to calculate Welding Joint Strength?
It is very important to know how strong is your welded joint. You have to know how good is your welded joint. Otherwise, the weldment may fail and you will be in big trouble. To make sure if the welding joint is capable of having enough strength to withstand your applied load you have to […]
TIG Welding vs MIG welding
We have discussed the TIG welding and the MIG welding processes in the previous article. Now it’s time to compare the major differences between these two processes to differentiate the use of these two distinctive welding processes. One of the common aspects of these welding processes is that they both are Electric arc welding. Under […]

Yes! the welding that you see in the welding shops to construct the metal gates, vehicle body repairs, and common engineering works. Those are all not the same Electric Arc Welding types. Let us discuss different types of Electric Arc Welding, […]
What are the Gas Welding Types, Flame types, and Equipment?
Gas welding is a fusion type of welding, which uses the flame of an oxy-acetylene or hydrogen gas from a welding torch upon the surfaces of the prepared joint. There are different gas welding types based on the type of gas for the flame we use for the welding. Let us discuss more details about […]
Welding Processes Classification
A welded joint is a permanent joint. This welded joint can be made by the fusion of the edges of the two parts to be joined together, with or without the application of pressure and filler material. Based on this the welding process is classified. In this article, we are going to discuss the Welding Processes […]
