Calgary welding and Fabrication and the Manufacturing Process
Calgary welding and fabrication. When in need for a suitable fabrication company don’t just go for what pops up in your search engines. Go for a company with an impeccable reputation, and is capable of delivering on bulk orders. Unfortunately, the manufacturing and industrial processes would be non-existent if it was not for the structures, equipment and resources generated through industrial fabrication. Welding and fabrication are two processes that go hand in hand.
How the Welding Process Serves Industrial Fabrication
Welding involves joining two materials through the coalescence process with a filler material. The welding process radiates energy and heat which turns the materials into liquid form at a particular point. On re-solidification, a secure joint will have been formed. Usually the materials joined are either thermoplastics or metals. Advanced welding can be achieved through welding and securely affixing certain materials so as to enable the creation of highly developed pieces of structure or equipment which can serve their intended purpose perfectly. To fulfill this role, welding should be versatile and work with a wide array of thermoplastics and metals, usually under extreme conditions.
Types of Welding Services and Their Uses
Different welding services have been developed and they come with their own merits and demerits. Here are some of the types of welding services performed.
Gas Tungsten Welding
Sometimes it is abbreviated as “GTAW”and uses tungsten electrodes during the weld. Unlike the SMAW welding process where the electrode gets consumed during the process, this is not the case here. The weld are is sealed off from contamination by air via the inert Helium or Argon gases.
Shielded Metallic Arc Welding
The abbreviation is “SMAW” or is at times referred to as “stick welding”. To be precise, the stick here is the electrode which has a protective flux. The electrode holder will firmly hold onto the stick to create an electric arc using alternating or direct current. The electrode begins to melt away slowly concurrently melting the joining metals. During the process the gas vapor released by the flux coating safeguards the wield surface from contamination.
Gas Metal Arc Welding
Uses a wire electrode which is consumable and fed through the welding gun. Inert gases such as carbon dioxide and Argon are also spread over the weld area to prevent contamination. This method is preferred for its versatility and ease.
Flux-Cored Arc Welding
Has a strong resemblance to the Gas Metal arc welding and features special tubular wires filled with flux. The flux alone is sufficient enough to safeguard the metal from contamination.
Submerged Arc Welding
Uses consumable electrodes which are fed automatically. It produces a blanket of granular flux which consists of several compounds such as lime, silica, manganese oxide and calcium fluoride. This blanket completely submerges this welding area forming a protective coating layer.
The role played by welding processes in the fabrication industry is crucial. When performed by highly experienced and qualified welders, the end result is remarkable. We are proud to provide top quality welding services to all our clients. We possess all the versatility and skills required to fabricate pipes, steel structures and pressure vessels as required.
