Modern welding is a science and an art Sacramento
Modern welding to most people outside is a simple matter of joining, or combining two materials, usually metals, or thermoplastics. However, if this seemingly easy process is taken further, with experts like Miller welders it begins to appear that welding could be considered not only a science but also an art. The bonding of materials is usually achieved by melting the two pieces to be joined, and then adding a filler material, designed to produce a molten pool, usually referred to as the weld pool.
Upon a welding arc being removed, a cooling of the pool occurs, which in turn forms a join between the two original materials, which is both and at the same time, extremely durable. A specialist at Lincoln welders could explain in detail how this welding process is accomplished by a variety of highly effective methods. A significant difference, however, between these methods is the energy source utilized for the welding process; for example, an electric arc, laser, gas flame, as well as ultrasound waves.
A further difference in the science-art of welding relates to how the weld pool is formed. Miller welders specialize in technical applications of this type, especially in relation to Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) usually referred to as TIG (tungsten inert gas) welding. This is an arc-welding process, using a non-consumable tungsten electrode to create the weld. In this process, a shielding gas is utilized for the protection of the weld area against potential contamination from the surrounding atmosphere.
Lincoln welders can assist you with another highly used type of welding, which is Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW). It is a process usually known as Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding and in which a welding gun is employed to dispense a wire electrode with shielding gas to a welding arc.
