Types of Welding:

Types of Welding TIG, Stick , and MIG

TIG, Stick, and MIG Make Up 90% of All Welding:

TIG, Stick, and MIG Make Up 90% of All Welding What are the different types of welding and what are they used for ? If you are looking for a 20,000 foot view of the different types of welding along with applications, stick around for a minute, I think I can help.

Stick welding:

Stick welding Stick welding is often called Arc welding Stick welding is the old school kind of welding  It uses a stick electrode like a 6013, 6011, or 7018 welding rod The rod is struck like a match to get the arc going and the rod is fed into the puddle as it burns

MIG welding:

MIG welding Mig welding is considered one of the easiest types of welding to learn. rod does not have to be fed as it shortens like with stick welding A wire is fed through a cable and out the end of the mig welding gun and all the operator is required to do is to pull the trigger and weld Mig welding actually kind of describes 2 types of welding Bare wire mig is cleaner, and will weld thinner metal, but flux core is easier to use outdoors and does not require a cylinder of mig welding gas or a flow meter Mig welding helmets also have lighter shades as compared to other types of welding

TIG welding :

TIG welding Harder to master than mig or stick welding Both hands are needed to tig weld One hand holds a tig torch with a tungsten electrode that provides the arc and heat Other hand feeds the rod TIG welding equipment is generally more expensive

TIG welding uses :

TIG welding uses Virtually all conventional metals can be welded with the tig process Carbon and low alloy steels, stainless steel, nickel alloys, aluminum, magnesium, titanium, cobalt, and copper alloys can all be welded using this type of welding.

Plasma arc welding :

Plasma arc welding Plasma arc welding is similar to tig welding except that the tungsten electrode is recessed inside a nozzle and the heat is created by ionizing gasses flowing around the arc Plasma arc welding is used extensively in aerospace applications for dimensional restoration of air seals and jet engine blade repair where thicknesses are often below .015" Amperages used are often single digit.

Gas welding:

Gas welding Gas welding is one of the old school types of welding Oxygen and Acetylene is the most popular setup for a gas welding kit gas welding is still used a lot for automotive exhaust applications
