Weathering steel offers excellent resistance to atmospheric corrosion caused by rain, snow or humidity. During the welding process, the filler metal type and the manner in which it is applied determines whether the resulting weld will match corrosion resistance or have the same reddish appearance, more commonly known as color match.
Although the effect of various elements in filler metals can be rather complex, a review of their general properties can also help welding operators determine which filler metal is ideal for the job. It is important to consider the properties needed in a completed weld when making the filler metal selection.
Here are a few of the best practices that every welding operator should know when it comes to choosing and maintaining nozzles, contact tips, retaining heads and gas diffusers, and cable.
Welding stainless remains complicated. Besides paying close attention to heating and cooling the stainless, the filler metal must be properly matched to the base metal with electrodes of the same grade.
Filler metal selection is critical to maintain the integrity of the final weldment. Here is a review of their general properties that can help you determine which filler metal is ideal for the job.
These tips may involve an investment of time, effort and resources, but they can pay off in the long run for welding operations that use a variety of welding processes and equipment.
The campaign, “It’s the tie that binds,” showcases the Marine Group Boat Works partnership with the U.S. Navy to celebrate creating some of the most distinctive and instrumental things that impact the world.
“It’s the tie that binds” celebrates the journey from the filler metals customers use to the relationships developed on the journey to find the right filler metal solution.
The new Robotic Welding Cell Rental Program allows end users to test automation in their own welding operation before purchasing equipment, minimizing risk and barriers regarding capital expenditures, and helping businesses meet short-run production demands.
FabCO Element 71C and 71M wires from Hobart are ideal for welding in shipbuilding, structural steel, heavy equipment manufacturing and general fabrication.
Stoody nickel-based tungsten carbide consumables from ESAB offer a wide range of tailored hardfacing and high alloy joining solutions to address wear caused by abrasion, impact, corrosion and heat.
These advanced wire feeders from ESAB are ideal for ship/barge, off-shore and construction applications where operators change welding parameters, use hotter settings for welding in the flat position and cooler settings for welding vertical up.
