Brumleve Industries has announced the release of its latest resource “A Comprehensive Guide to Welding.” This resource examines welding by looking at the history of welding, types of welding, and welding safety and precautions.
Welding is a fabrication method that fuses materials, typically metals or thermoplastics. In Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding, an arc is formed in an inert argon or helium atmosphere between the workpiece and a non-consumable tungsten electrode. Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding is a technique in which filler metal is continually fed into the welding gun while a welding current fuses the base materials. In Arc welding, two metals are connected utilizing electricity to generate enough heat to melt metal and then allow the melted metal to cool.
Welding is commonly used in the production of various items including the creation of storage facilities, construction materials, automobiles, ships, industrial and agricultural machinery, and land and underwater pipelines. According to Brumleve Industries, “Most engineering projects greatly depend on welding for joining metal pieces of all shapes and sizes.”
Modern inspection techniques have reduced flaws and irregularities, raising quality and safety standards. Welders need protective breathing equipment, goggles, helmets, and gloves to protect themselves from physical harm and burns, and welding equipment must be regularly inspected and maintained to ensure it is safe.
