Stainless Steel Welding
Welding is a method of joining two pieces of metal together using heat. Knowing what technique to use, and being experienced using that technique is essential if you want to create strong joins. That’s why DIY is not always the best option when it comes to welding.
Creating a great weld could mean the difference between a pipe holding together or bursting at the join. Welded metal will never be quite as strong as a single sheet of metal. That said, it’s not always practical to use a single sheet.
In those instances where it is not, an experienced welder can create a join that is almost as good as a single sheet of metal.
At Stinson’s Industrial, we’ve got several craftsmen who have mastered the art of creating neat and clean welds. Our welders will be able to assist with any welding projects that you might need in an industrial setting.
What Techniques Will We Use?
That’s going to depend on the project at hand, and how much energy it requires to melt the pieces together. When it comes to stainless steel, stainless steel stick welding is a more specialized version of the process.
It creates a strong bond and has the following benefits:
- It’s a lot more efficient
- It makes fabrication easier and faster
- The structural weight will be lower
- It looks more polished in the end
Stainless Steel TIG Welding
Stainless steel is an excellent alternative to carbon steel as it will not rust, and it is very strong. It’s not suitable for all applications because it tends to be heavier, but it does make a great alternative to aluminum.
TIG welding is a method that uses a tungsten electrode and welding rods to create the join. It produces a superior join, but it has the downside of taking longer than MIG welding. You also really have to know what you’re doing to get it right.
Another advantage is that you can get away with lower temperatures on more delicate projects. It also creates a clean and more aesthetically-pleasing join, in the hands of an experienced welder.
It’s best for welding together thinner sheets, rather than big hunks of metal. You can, if you have the right equipment, join thicker pieces of metal together, but it will take a lot of power, and it may work out to be more expensive.
Stainless Steel MIG Welding
These joins are permanent as well and, when done correctly, can only be broken if you cut the metal apart. This type of welding is a lot simpler, and it goes faster than TIG welding. This a great technique where time is a factor or where you have a lot of metal that must be welded.
