Welding is a fabrication process that joins materials like metals, or thermoplastics by causing coalescence. When you melt the workpieces and add a filler material to form a liquid metal glue (the weld pool), it cools to become a strong joint.
Sometimes you need to apply pressure and heat combined to produce the weld. This is completely in contrast to soldering or brazing, which involve melting a lower-melting-point material between pieces to make them bond together without melting the workpieces.
There are many different energy sources to be used for welding, and some of them are; gas flame, electric arc, electron beam, ultrasound, friction, and laser to name a few. Welding fabrication can be performed in open air, under water, and in outer space.
Welding is dangerous, and should only be performed by professional welders that have been fully trained. Some of the things that can happen from poor safety when welding or welding fabrication are burns, electric shock, poisonous fumes, eye damage, and overexposure to ultraviolet light.
Shielded Metal Arc Welding is now one of the most popular welding methods. Arktek company employs many different types of welding services including Arc Welding as you can see from their website – arktekindustries.com.au.
