Welding is the process in which two or more parts of metals are joined permanently to make them a single object by using high heat. High heat melts the metal parts together, and cooling them caused fusion. Almost everything we use daily is either welded or made of welded materials. It is highly valuable in construction, automobile manufacturing, textiles, arms manufacturing, ornamental, aircraft, and spacecraft manufacturing industries. The use of welding is truly unlimited. Welding includes lots of important tools that can be problematic to manage sometimes. To get the benefits of welding without any equipment problems, always ensure to pick the best welding cabinet (ตู้ เชื่อม, which is the term in Thai).
What is Arc Welding?
Arc welding is the process of joining two or more metallic parts permanently using electricity. In this process, the heat generated by the electricity joins the metallic parts. It is one of the most commonly used welding techniques.
Advantages of Arc Welding:
1. Cheap in Cost
Arc welding requires fewer tools and pieces of equipment in comparison to other welding techniques. It reduces the cost of welding. Moreover, the tools required are reasonably priced. Therefore, this technique is more affordable than other techniques.
2. Fast Process
The heat generated by electricity is in a large amount. Arc welding is a quick method because of the heat generated. Smooth welding is also an advantage. It means that the product gets a neat and smooth appearance. It also produces very little distortion all due to fast speed and high heat concentration.
3. Less Spark Production
When someone thinks about welding, sparks smoke, and a flash of light comes to our mind. These three can be harmful to us humans. In this method sparks and smokes are produced in less quantity.
4. Strong Joints
The joints that are produced as a result of arc welding have high impact-strength. It means that they are quite strong and can bear a good amount of weight. Due to this advantage, many industries prefer Electric Welding Cabinet (ตู้ เชื่อม ไฟฟ้า, term in Thai) for their Welding.
5. Corrosion Resistance
The joints formed as a result of arc welding are highly resistant to corrosion. Corrosion is responsible for changing the physical appearance of the metal object, reduces the efficiency of metallic machines and decreases the life span of the metal object. Corrosion is particularly harmful to the metal industry. Corrosion-resistant weld joints reduce the need to use any corrosion resisting techniques, which are used by many industries to prevent corrosion.
Due to these advantages, arc welding is the most preferred welding technology in the industries.
