Strong welds are essential in a variety of applications. Use the combined experience, skill and knowledge of the professionals at Avon Lake Sheet Metal, located on the Westside of Cleveland. We offer welding solutions for a number of projects. Read on to learn more about different types of welds and the industries we serve.
Spot welding is a type of welding process that uses electric current to join two pieces of metal together. It works by sending an electric current through both pieces of metal, causing a strong electrical resistance between them and joining them at the point where the current passes through. Spot welding is a great option for manufacturing parts that need to be joined quickly and with a high level of strength. It’s also very economical in terms of materials and energy efficiency.
TIG welding, or Tungsten Inert Gas welding, is a type of arc welding process that uses a tungsten electrode to produce heat and create a weld. This process is ideal for joining thin sections of metal such as aluminum, magnesium and copper alloys. It also offers better control over the shape and size of the finished weld. TIG welding produces clean, precise welds with minimal smoke or spatter, making it ideal for delicate projects where accuracy and precision are important.
MIG welding, or Metal Inert Gas welding, is a type of welding process used to join two pieces of metal together. It uses an electric arc to create heat and melt the two materials together. The process is relatively quick and easy compared to other welding processes, making it popular for use in many industrial applications. MIG welders are ideal for constructing sturdy frames and structures that require strong joints. With minimal preparation, MIG welding can be used to create durable and reliable connections between metals.
Field welding is a type of welding that takes place in a job site or remote location, rather than in a factory or workshop. It is often used to assemble or repair heavy machinery or other large structures. Field welders must be able to work quickly and safely with minimal resources, as the environment may require outdoor work or inadequate equipment. Field welding requires specialized skills and knowledge of different types of welding, as well as knowledge of safety regulations and proper usage of tools.
Stick welding is an easy and cost-effective way to weld metal together. It uses a consumable electrode, or “stick,” that supplies the filler material and the electric arc to join two pieces of metal. The stick melts under the intense heat, creating a strong bond between the two pieces. Stick welding is also called arc welding and it’s a great choice for outdoor projects and repairs due to its portability.
