The Orbital Welding Process

Orbital welding is a process that was invented over fifty years ago.  It is a specialized area of welding where the welding arc is mechanically rotated around a static work piece continuously.  This welding technique is used on items that would be very difficult to

Guide to Orbital Welding

Orbital welding is a very specialized area of welding. It is a type of arc welding where the arc is rotated by machine around a static workpiece – such as a pipe – a full 360 degrees. It is an automated process and can be

Introduction to Orbital Welding

Orbital welding is a process that has been in use for over 50 years.  Orbital welding is a specialized field that requires special training and experience.  It is a process used when a consistent flow of heat and metal is required. Orbital welding is used

Overview of Orbital Welding

The orbital welding process gets its name from the fact that an electrode rotates around, or “orbits,” the stationary product being welded. As with tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding, an electric arc is produced between a non-consumable tungsten electrode and the metal that is welded.
