At Wilson’s Industrial Sales, we offer a wide range of welding machines to cater to various requirements and applications. Some of the common types of welding machines include:
Choosing the right welding machine depends on the materials being welded, the thickness of the material and your skill level. For thin materials, a MIG welder is an excellent choice, as it allows for precise control and clean welds. TIG welders are ideal for more intricate work and materials like aluminium or stainless steel. Stick welders are suitable for heavy-duty welding on thick materials, but they require a higher skill level. For versatile use, a multi-process welder is an excellent investment.
Welding can be dangerous without proper safety measures in place. Here are some key safety precautions to consider:
Welding stainless steel can be challenging, but following these best practices can help ensure success:
Some common welding machine problems and their solutions include:
For more complex issues, consult the equipment manual or contact a professional technician.
The lifespan of a welding machine depends on the quality of the machine, its usage and maintenance. With proper care and regular servicing, a welding machine can last for many years. Investing in a high-quality machine from reputable brands like Unimig, WIA, Weldforce or Bossweld can ensure a longer lifespan and better performance.
MIG (Metal Inert Gas) welding uses a continuously fed wire electrode and shielding gas to create a weld. It’s suitable for various materials and thicknesses, making it versatile and beginner friendly.
TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welding utilises a non-consumable tungsten electrode and shielding gas, and often requires a separate filler material. It allows for precision work on thin materials and is suitable for more experienced welders.
Stick (Shielded Metal Arc Welding) uses a consumable electrode coated in flux. It’s ideal for heavy-duty welding applications on thick materials and is well-suited for outdoor conditions. However, it generally requires a higher skill level compared to MIG and TIG welding.
