Different Techniques Being Used For Welding Fabrication

November 23, 2020

The demand for metal fabrication processes has been growing since they were first introduced in the industry.


In general, metal fabrication involves various processes and one of the most vital of them is welding fabrication in Toronto. Over the years, the technologies used in welding have greatly developed. The process is now performed more accurately and the use of computerized systems removes difficulties and allows fabricators to create better components. During the design phase of welding fabrication, computers are utilized for more precision and quicker processes. This is very beneficial when designing and fabricating more delicate components. 


There are plenty of materials that can be used to weld almost any part or final product. The most commonly used metals during welding fabrication in Toronto are steel, copper, brass, and aluminum. Meanwhile, other industries want to use metal alloys to make their products because they are lighter in weight and can be used for different applications. Moreover, most industries and businesses heavily rely on welding to make materials and products for their daily operations, including the food service industry, electronics, engineering, construction and so on. The fabricators utilize different types of tools and welding methods to do their job. 


The three most popular techniques being used are GTAW, GMAW, and SMAW.  Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), or tungsten inert gas welding (TIG), is a welding method that uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to weld. It is mostly prefered to weld thin sections of metal parts. Gas metal arc welding (GMAW), or metal inert gas welding (MIG), is a semi-automatic or automatic welding process. It is mostly preferred in industrial welding fabrication due to its speed, versatility, and adaptive capacity for robotic automation. Last is the MIG Shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), or manual metal arc welding (MMA), or stick welding, a method that uses a consumable electrode that is coated in flux to produce the weld.
