Welding Processes and Types: MIG, TIG, and Spot Welding


Welding Processes – An Overview

Welding is a fabrication process that joins materials, usually metals and thermoplastics, into one. It is different from gluing, brazing, and soldering as these processes only sticks two separate pieces of materials, while in welding two or more separate pieces of materials are actually turned into a single piece.

Welding jobs are done either by fusion welding ...

Humans and Machines: A Symbiotic Future Awaits

Relationship between Human and Machine

As we indulge into a discussion about the future of humans and machines and how they are going to co-exist together, I guess, the very first thing that comes to our mind is the famous James Cameron directed movie The Terminator in which the artificially intelligent machines also called Humanoids, which were designed for assisting us in extreme situations (like a ...

Application of Sheet Metal Fabrication in the Automotive Industry

Sheet Metal Fabrication in the Automotive Industry

The application of sheet metal fabrication in the automotive industry is vast, starting from structural work like roll cage fabrication to the fabrication done in setting over the metal plate on the structure itself. But that's just about the car making industry. Other sub-industries like the ones who do car modification, or repairing and restoration also require automotive sheet metal ...

Laser Cutting Explained: Types and Processes

Laser Cutting

The term laser cutting, in general, is the process of cutting through a material (metal) with the help of a high-powered laser beam. The process is directed by CNC(Computer Numerically Controlled) machine from a CAD vector file.

It's an industry standard for a faster and more accurate metal (and other material) fabrication. That makes it a choice of application for ...

Assurance of Quality Products Through Metal Fabrication

Metal sheet febrication

Metal fabrication is an old and effective procedure which comprises cutting, bending and assembling metal structures for different pieces and part. The metal cutting process can be actually performed through sawing or shearing. These tasks can also be done through punching or laser cutting.

Press Brakes Press brakes are used ...

What Are the Machines & Tools Used in Sheet Metal Fabrication?

The best examples of these methods and techniques are steel plants. However, it is important to understand the sheet metal fabrication process and its various aspects. If you get to know ...

Why Medical and Diagnostic Equipment Enclosures Should Be Fabricated Out of Sheet Metal

Medical and Diagnostic Equipment

Medical and diagnostic equipment must have proper security. The components inside the equipment are expensive and prone to damage. To ensure equipment is working properly for every patient’s safety, they should have limited atmospheric exposure.

There is a certain amount of latitude in choosing the type of material used ...

5 Metal Bending Techniques You Should Know

Why Biopad Is Considered the Best? It is a flexible corrosion-inhibiting device which is made of 100% bio-based non-woven materials which contain ...

Metal Stamping or Metal Fabrication: Which One to Choose

Metal Fabrication

It is quite common to see people confused between metal stamping and metal fabrication as both are used for manufacturing metal parts. Whether you should choose metal stamping or metal fabrication, it is an important decision that will ultimately affect the quality, design, cost, timing and repeatable performance of the metal components which are going to be produced. It would be a sensible ...
