Welding is an essential part of the fabrication process, as it allows objects to be created from multiple pieces of metal.
Welding is a process of heat application to join metals and it is one of the most common methods of fabricating metal structures.
Welding is used in metal fabrication because it is the strongest and most durable way to join two pieces of metal together.
For example, a metal fabricator will take various individual components and weld them together to make a length of steel railings or a metal fence.
There are a variety of welding processes, each with its own advantages and drawbacks. The most commonly used welding processes are:
Arc welding is the most widely used welding process. It is a type of welding that uses an electric arc to create heat to melt the metal.
Mig welding is a type of welding that uses a wire feeder to provide a continuous supply of filler metal. The welding arc is created between the base metal and the filler wire.
Tig welding is a type of welding that uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to create the welding arc. The filler metal is added manually to the weld pool.
