Mobile Welding Comes To You

Assessing the Appropriate Welding Technique

If you have a welding project that needs to be accomplished in a remote locations, mobile welding is just a phone call away. Mobile welding Toronto is a very convenient and efficient choice for customers because they are saved from lugging heavy metal parts to a fabrication shop. A welding expert can visit your home so that the project can be assessed on-site and a decision made for the appropriate welding technique immediately.

Mobile Welding Comes To You

Mobile welding is high in demand by maintenance services and construction companies because they provide services in different locations. The portability of mobile welding allows the assembly process to be carried out anywhere. However, there are different welding processes, and making a choice can be rather daunting. The welder can be the best source of information to make the proper choice but it won’t hurt to know and understand the basics of welding. Even if mobile welding can produce the best welding results in the shortest possible time, it is important to take into account the materials to be welded. The right choice will ensure a high weld quality for the least cost.

There is no welding process that works for all types of materials and situations. The most common welding technique used by mobile welding is stick welding or shielded metal arc welding because it is the most cost effective for customers. Stick welding is ideal for general construction, maintenance and repair services, farm and ranch applications and plant fabrication repairs. Welding rod selection for stick welding is a pretty straightforward process. If machinery made from steel is to be repaired, a 6011 welding rod will do because it even tolerates less than perfect joints.

To make an evaluation of the welding process, it is also important to consider the thickness of the material, the power source, and the amount of current available. The weld quality will be determined by the sufficient amount of penetration without pores, pockets and gaps. For example, MIG or metal inert gas welding is very fast and easy to use but it is not frequently used by mobile welding because of the difficulties of setting up the equipment. MIG welding equipment is more complex and expensive particularly when you add the cost of shielding gas, electrodes and replacement tips and nozzles. Besides lacking in portability, MIG welding is more suitable indoors because it uses a shielding gas to protect the purity of the weld. When used outdoors, the wind can play havoc with the shielding gas and it will affect the quality of the weld.
