Welders

Welding is a high heat process which melts the base material. Heat at a high temperature causes a weld pool of molten material which cools to form the join. Pressure can also be used to produce a weld, either alongside the heat or by itself. In addition to joining metals, welding can also be used for plastics and wood. Welding differentiates from soldering of blazing (low-temperature joining techniques) by melting base materials instead of bonding two materials with a solder. Whether you are looking for something to fulfil a hobby or to use as part of your job, we have a versatile welding range to suit the casual mechanic or professional tradesman.

Welding Industries

Six industries where welding is used are

  1. Automotive Industry (MIG welding)
  2. Aerospace (gas welding)
  3. Construction and Infrastructure (joining non-ferrous metals)
  4. Manufacturing (from computer componentry to machinery coils)
  5. Shipping (welding underpins the construction of most ships)
  6. Railroads (fusing steel together effectively)

MIG Welding

MIG welding is the easiest type of welding for beginners to learn. MIG welding uses lots of electricity to create an electrical arc between an electrode wire and the metal being welded. The arc melts the wire, which is then deposited to create the weld. When the heat is removed, the weld pool cools, solidifies and form a new piece of fused metal – the weld is complete. MIG welding can be divided into two different types of welding. 

  • Bare wire
    • Can be used to join thin pieces of metal together
  • Flux core
    • For outdoor use because it does not require a gas supply or flow meter

MIG Welding Equipment

CROP stocks an extensive range of welding helmets and welding gloves. Choosing the right welding supplies for the type of material or project you are working on will ensure the process is much easier done.
