Right Welding Service

Whether you run a large company or a small business, if you need a welding service to support the efficiency of your product, then you may be wondering where to find expert welders.

Not only that, you need to know that the people you approach have knowledge of all the different welding techniques and what kind of jobs these are used for. The success of a welder depends very much on the knowledge and experience of the person doing the welding job, and you need to be sure this person knows what they are doing.

How do you go about choosing a welding services company? You could select a name at random, call them, and hope for the best, or try the old-fashioned method of word-of-mouth recommendation. The difficulty lies in knowing or not knowing how reputable that company is. Here are a few things that DK Welding Services says you should keep in mind when looking, which may help you choose the best TIG welding services company for your needs.

What Job Do You Want Them To Do?

To access the correct welding services, you need to have a clear idea of the task you need help with and know how to give as much information about that task as possible. For example, say you need a steel stairway fabricating or, at the other end of the scale, you need a welding job on a vehicle's stainless steel or aluminum exhaust pipe. Not all steels and metals are the same, so it goes without saying that welding different forms of metal requires other techniques. There are MIG and TIG welding and gas (oxy-acetylene) welding, and each of these techniques can be used for other tasks depending on the kind of finish, strength, or flexibility required. Here is a brief explanation of the different welding techniques to help you.

MIG Welding

Metal Inert Gas welding is used mainly for stainless steel, copper, aluminum, and specialist alloys. It uses an inert gas called Argon and electricity to weld surfaces together and can be used for industrial or domestic tasks, small or large. This is because the welder can set the levels of power, speed, and intensity depending on the thickness of the metal.

TIG Welding

Tungsten Inert Gas welding is used when a high level of precision is required, for instance, when fragile pieces of metal are to be welded together. TIG welding is ideal for jobs that need to look neat and where you don’t want to see large, unsightly blobs of weld. It is used mainly for aluminum, titanium, stainless steel, copper, nickel, and other special alloys – which must first be cleaned of impurities. With TIG welding, the welder can more easily and precisely control the arc to ensure an even weld. Precision welding takes more time, so if speed is essential, MIG welding may be the better option.

Gas Welding

Oxy-acetylene, or oxy-fuel welding, is the type of thing most would picture if asked to describe welding. It is the most universally used technique in heavy industry, such as engineering and automotive garages, plumbing, fabrication, and occasionally in artisan settings like a blacksmith shop. It uses a combination of oxygen and acetylene gas at over 6000 degrees Fahrenheit to melt two metal surfaces to weld them together. Gas welding is versatile and used for cutting, brazing, bending, and forming. It is more suitable for outdoor work than MIG and TIG welding.

Whatever your welding job, expert advice and assistance should be standard when choosing the right welding company. If they’re vague on the details, you might wish to be wary of using their services.
