Colorado Springs Portable Welding
Mobile Welding Services
Portable welding in a process of fixing two or more pieces (usually of metal) that by means of heat and / or pressure, which melts part of said pieces or a contribution material is added. When the mobile welding is finished, they are joined after they cool down. Although the general process is as explained above, there are different types of welding art depending on the result you want to obtain. Here are some of these types of aluminum welding and their characteristics.
Tig Welding (Tungsten Inert Gas)
Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding jobs uses the heat generated by an electric arc that strikes between a tungsten electrode and the workpiece. This allows the metal to merge into the joint area. You can work without filling or by adding the filling using a consumable cable. The welds with TIG are of very high quality and can be produced in a wide set of materials with thicknesses that go up to 8 or 10 millimeters, being very suitable for sheet material.
MIG Welding (Metal Inert Gas) or MAG (Metal Active Gas)
MIG-MAG welding and fabrication is called that because it depends on the gas injected (Metal Inert Gas or Metal Active Gas) and is carried out by arc under shielding gas with expendable electrodes. The arc that uses an electrode is formed by a constant wire and the pieces and is protected by an inert gas or an active gas, hence its name. It is a very productive and very good quality process and the welds can have thicknesses from 0.7 to 6 mm.
Electric Arc Welding Jobs with Coated Electrodes
In this type of welding there is a potential difference between the electrode and the parts to be welded. The heat produced by the electric arc melts the end of the electrode and the metal of the piece. This type of welding repair is used primarily for medium-large thicknesses. Understanding these types of welding cutting can help you become a better welder. Whether it is stick or brazing, you always want to be careful when using the machine. Even spot welding can be dangerous, so take your time and have fun!
