The Intricacies of Commercial Welding

Welding is the process by which two metal pieces are bonded tightly to make them firm. Industrial and architectural structures require high quality welding services. Good quality welding calls for durability and strength not compromising on safety and cleanliness. Structural welds have to be inspected from time to time to ensure that there are no discontinuities which may result in hazards in future. Every area of business and industry requires the welding process in some context.

Commercial welding companies are strict in employing only skilled welders who are experts in knowing the correct heat to be administered while welding. Their work shouldn’t look bulky or pitted which means the weld is not uniform and cracks and holes might show up in future.

The food and hospitality industry uses a lot of welded steel equipment. High quality steel known as 304 is used here because it does not rust easily. Welding here should be done with great precision to prevent bacteria and other harmful effluents from contaminating the food, which is a possibility if there are uneven or cracked portions in the equipment. To ensure maximum safety, tig welding is recommended here.

Welding can be done in different ways namely gas welding which uses the flame and heat from burning gas. Propane torches are used to weld smaller items which require only less heat. But an Oxyacetylene torch is the most widely used welding tool. However oxy-propane is a cheaper alternative to both the above mentioned types. AC and DC welders, MIG and Tig welders are used for bigger projects and heavy equipment.
