  • Metal Inert Gas Process (MIG)
    The Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), process is commonly known as the Metal Inert Gas Process (MIG). MIG welding is also referred to as short circuit transfer. In the MIG arc welding process, metal parts are joined by melting base and filler metals with an arc struck between a consumable filler metal
  • Stud Arc Welding and Drawn Arc Welding
    discharge, internal resistance, or other processes are used to generate an arc or fuse metal. Similar processes can be applied to weld a thread nut to a work piece. In drawn arc welding systems, an arc is struck between the fastener and work surface, the fastener is then lifted and plunged into the molten
  • Spark or Arc Excitation
    Spark and arc excitation sources use a current pulse (spark) or a continuous electrical discharge (arc) between two electrodes to vaporize and excite analyte atoms. The electrodes are either metal or graphite. If the sample to be analyzed is a metal, it can be used as one electrode. Non-conducting
  • Arc-Welded Studs
    In stud welding, the heat of an electric arc drawn between the fastener and the work melts a quantity of metal, after which the two heated parts are brought together under pressure. Welded fasteners must be made of a weldable material, and one end of the fastener must be designed for welding. Stud
  • Guarding against arc flash
    to a loss of eyesight. It can also spew molten metal considerable distances where it can lodge in skin or ignite clothing. A 10,000-A arc on a 480-V circuit is said to have the explosive force of eight sticks of dynamite. The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA), Occupational Safety and Health
  • Ultrasonic Metal Welding for Wire Splicing and Termination
    useful application of this technology. Commonly used techniques involving the fusion of metal through the application of heat by flame, hot tools, electric current or electric arc in combination with cleaning and fluxing agents and sometimes filler metals are able to join these materials
  • Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW)
    In the Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW) process, metal parts are joined by melting base and filler metals with an arc struck between a consumable filler metal wire and the base alloy work piece. Flux cored arc welding is similar to MIG welding except a wire with a central core filled with flux
  • Arc Flash Concerns & Detecting Early Signs (.pdf)
    , metal clad switch gear, pad mount transformers, and other electrical equipment, has risen, along with the available fault current.
  • Do You Need Do TIG or MIG Welding for your Sheet Metal Fabrication Project?
    While there are a few different types of welding processes, both TIG and MIG welding can be used for sheet metal. TIG stands for tungsten inert gas, while MIG stands for metal inert gas. Both rely on a electric arc when creating the weld. When determining whether you'll be using TIG or MIG welding
  • "Cold " Laser Beam Improves Arc Welding, Saves Money
    COLUMBUS, Ohio - While arc welding has been used for decades to join metal parts on everything from cars to boats to airplanes, the basic technology behind this multi-billion dollar industry has changed little since World War II. have devised a way to improve the precision of arc welding, and even
