Welding Basics – Welding Tips and Tricks – MIG + WIG + Arc + Robotic Welding 101

Welding is a process that uses electric to bring a particular diameter electrode to its kindling point and join 2 metallic pieces of metal together. Each type of material from steel to stainless to aluminium all have different melting points but typically on a GMAW Mig-welding Arc you can reach temperatures of 10,000 degrees at […]

MIG Welding Techniques

Before we start we should discuss basic housekeeping. If you want good professional results, you need a clean workpiece. Everything from rust to paint to oil can contaminate your weld, so make sure your workpiece is clean and you’ve selected the proper shielding gas and established a flow rate of between twenty and thirty cubic […]

Flux-Cored Welding Basics: What is Flux-Cored Welding?

The flux core arc welding process and self-shielding wires can be used when welding outside, or where other environmental conditions prevent the use of an external shielding gas. In this process, the outer covering and flux core melt in the heat of the arc, producing shielding gas and creating a slag covering that protects the […]

How to MIG Weld Aluminum with a Spool Gun

When you weld aluminum, you’re dealing with a much softer metal. Because of this you’ll need some special equipment and follow different procedures. Because of its softness, aluminum wire is difficult to push through a standard mig gun. That’s why we recommend the use of a spool gun. This reduces the distance the wire has […]
