What is Industrial Welding
Industrial welding involves using intense heat (5,000 to 30,000℉) and pressure to join pieces of metal to create solid and durable structures.
The end product can typically withstand the demands of heavy-duty applications.
This process has become vital in industrial manufacturing. Welders can create complex structures, heavy equipment, and other products in various industries.
4 Main Types of Welding
Technology has diversified and improved the tools, techniques, and equipment welders use. The four main types of industrial welding include:
Large Scale Welding
Large-scale welding is a crucial part of industrial welding that involves welding large structures and components such as bridges, buildings, and heavy equipment. It’s a demanding field that requires a skilled welder experienced in large structures and the safety requirements involved. While different welding techniques may be used, it depends on the particular workpieces, metal thickness, and the project’s requirements.
Large-scale welding requires specialized equipment to handle the project’s size and complexity. This can include heavy-duty welding machines, cranes, and other lifting and support equipment. Further, the project’s particulars demand careful planning, preparation, and execution to produce strong, durable, defect-free welds.
Common Industrial Welding Processes
The most common welding processes used in various industrial environments include:
