Understanding the Different Types of Welding Fabrication in Toronto

January 23, 2018

The process of welding fabrication in Toronto continues to stand among the most important and in-demand metal fabrication processes available across the city and Greater area. Part of this is because welding is something of a “traditional” method – welders have been a part of industrial manufacturing for literally thousands of years. However, the simplicity, reliability, and flexibility of the process is a significant element of its appeal. There are many different types of welding, and each one is well-suited for a variety of helpful industrial tasks.


Each type of welding fabrication from the Toronto area, however, has its own advantages and disadvantages. That’s why picking the right process is crucial for achieving consistent, excellent results.


At Demtra, we are all very familiar with the best practices for welding fabrication from Toronto.


Four of the major types of welding fabrication from our Toronto business are metal arc wielding (MIG), shielded metal arc welding, or stick, tungsten arc welding (TIG), and flux-cored welding. Each one might be used in a different industrial setting, and it is up to the welder to decide on the ideal technique for their own process. They might use shielded metal arc welding, for instance, for construction-related purposes, or if they were working with heavy-duty materials that could withstand the process. Alternatively, metal arc wielding might be better, even for metals of similar thicknesses, where fumes or heat input is a concern for the welder.


A flux-cored weld might be helpful where steel, or material of similar strength, is being used; steel erection benefits strongly from the tubular flux core of the wires involved. If a welder is working with alloys, rather than with just one material, they might prefer tungsten arc welding.


The type of weld naturally depends strongly on the intended end result, and at Demtra, we are more than familiar with the process! Whatever your unique needs in metal fabrication may be, we would be more than happy to bring it into reality. Contact us today to learn more!
