Sheet Metal Welding
The third step : Sheet Metal Welding Processing
Here comes the third step of sheet metal fabrication: the welding process. It’s a sheet metal fabrication technique that combines two pieces of metal with similar melting points and compositions using fusion.
What is Sheet Metal Welding?
The primary welding mechanism is that by heating and pressurising, the joints of two metals are partially melted and then cooled and then joined together. Welding takes advantage of the property of a substance that begins to melt when it reaches its melting point.
Types of welding sheet metal processes？
The four main types of welding processing could be carried out by BLIKSEN: GMAW, GTAW, FCAW and FLW.
Gas metal arc welding (GMAW), also could be referred to as metal inert gas welding (MIG) and metal active-gas welding (MAG, known as Co2 welding), is to use continuous electric arc melting between welding wire and weldments to transfer to welding wire and base material, forming the molten pool and weld beads. The advantages of GMAW are the least waste and not easily chipping. Owing to the semi-automation and full-automation processes, the welders can get the hang of GMAW and do not need to worry about defects when stops and starts. GMAW could be commonly used in a thin sheet of carbon steel and stainless steel.
Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) is also known as tungsten inert gas welding (TIG). GTAW uses the Tungsten electrode, sending galvanic current to a welding arc to heat the objects. The advantages of GTAW are stable process and tidy weld beads to enhance the weld strength and quality. GTAW is commonly used in stainless steel, aluminium, copper, magnesium, and titanium alloy thin sheet metal.
Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW) uses a welding arc to join the continuous tube-shaped filler metal and base material. The benefit of FCAW: less welding spatter when, which could be easily cleaned with stronger welding strength.
FCAW is a welding technology applied to the medium-thick plates in cast iron, stainless steel, carbon steel, Inconel and low-alloy steel. Usually, FCAW is used in the field of architecture and shipbuilding.
Fiber Laser Welding (FLW) features centralised control of heating scope, minimal welding deformation, and a rapidly welding process. The fiber laser welding device in BLIKSEN is equipped with double feeding racks. When FLW is processing, the feeding takes place on the other side. Thus, FLW could increase productivity and stabilise welding quality.
