Tips for Choosing Welding Wire

Welding is a metal joining process that has been around for hundreds of years.  During the time it has been in practice there have been many beneficial advancements made in the many different welding techniques.  One of these advancements was the discovery and use of...

Determining the Proper Amperage When Welding

Welding requires the use of an electrical power source in order to produce heat that is used to melt the flux on an electrode.  Choosing the right amount of amperage is crucial to the success of your welds and is commonly determined by the size.

Introduction to Brazing

Brazing is a welding process that is used to join two pieces of base metal using melted filler which flows across the joint.  When the filler metal cools, it creates a solid weld between the two pieces of metal.  The process of brazing is similar

Common GMAW Welding Problems and Their Solutions

Gas metal arc welding (GMAW) is believed to be one of the easiest welding processes to learn and perform. The primary reason to its ease of use is due to the fact that the power source does most of the work as it adjusts the welding parameters to fit the different welding conditions the welder may be faced with. 

Soldering, Brazing, and Welding Oh My!

What is the difference between soldering, brazing, and welding? Each join metal, right? Soldering Soldering has been compared to hot glue. But unlike a gluing process, soldering with filler metals at the junction of workpieces will form a gas- and liquid-tight bond. Soldering uses metal

What is Brazing?

Brazing is a welding technique where two pieces of metal are joined using metallic filler that has been melted and then allowed to flow across and into the joint.  Once the filler metal cools, a sound and viable weld is formed.  The brazing process is

All About Brazing

Brazing is a process that joins metal. Filler metal is heated and distributed between at least two close-fitting parts by a process called capillary action. A flux is usually used to protect the atmosphere around the filler metal as it is brought just above its
