There are many different ways to cut metal, with some methods being more effective than others. Plasma cutting is a high-tech method of cutting metal and uses ionised, focused jets of gas to cut through thin sheets of metal.When a plasma cutter is switched on, high-voltage electrode quickly heats a compound gas mixture. To focus… Continue reading Is A Plasma Cutter Worth Buying?
Friction welding is a type of solid state welding and is an umbrella term that encompasses several types of welding processes. It is fast, efficient and one of the most popular types of solid state welding. Friction welding involves generating heat through friction force of the workpiece. The heat generated is so high that it… Continue reading What Is Friction Welding?
Plasma arc welding involves joining metals together by heating with a constricted arc between the workpiece (transfer arc) and an electrode (non-transfer arc) OR the constricting nozzle and the electrode.The constricted plasma that is formed is highly ionised and concentrated. In simple terms, plasma arc welding uses plasma (gas) that has been superheated to become… Continue reading What Are The Advantages and Disadvantages of Plasma Welding?
A lap joint is one of the five different types of welding joints. It is most commonly used when joining two different metals that have different levels of thickness. The ‘lap’ reflects the overlapping pattern that is formed when the two metals are joined together. The thickness of the two metals is what determines the… Continue reading What is a Lap Joint Weld?
