In most of the heavy industries, injuries are very common. Dealing with metals is one of the integral parts if heavy industries. Metal fabrication is one of the processes that is prone to a lot of injuries. There are possibilities that it might affect things in a very bad way. This is why people are advised to take all the safety precautions while working with metals. No matter how skilled you are, there are a lot of possibilities that you will get hurt while working. In this article, we will see some of the safety tips while using metal fabrication tools.
Welding is the process of joining two metal pieces by heating them. It is a process that is used in various industries. There are different types of welding methods that are followed in different industries. In this article, we will see the three types of welding machines.
Spot weldersSpot welders are the welding machines that commonly used in the garages to repair vehicles. Their mechanism is very simple. They work more like a staple gun. There are two copper electrodes that are placed on the layered metal sheets. The electricity flows through these copper sheets, but it does not flow in steel or aluminum. The friction from the metal because of the resistance produces the heat. The heat melts that metal and the sheets are fused together. The welding from the spot welders is very solid. Spot welders are used in garages. You can see these welding spots in the cars that are used to connect the parts.
Brazing WeldersThe brazing welders are also called as MIG welders. Some people also call them a hot glue gun. The MIG welders fuse two metal pieces by butting them together. The electrode is clamped to the metal that you are working. The machine feeds a steady wire through the gun which goes onto the metal. In this situation, the wire serves as a second electrode. It forms an electrical arc between the metals. It creates a pool that fuses the metal together. This welding method is also called as gas metal arc welding. In this procedure, a gas called the shielding gas is produced from the gun. It is called as the protecting gas because it protects the welding from being contaminated by the external source. There are a lot of advantages in using the MIG welding process. Some of them are
- Lightweight gun
- Push/pull torch
- Soft start
