Weld Fusion vs. Weld Penetration
How to Spot A Good Weld vs Bad Weld
There are 3 welding procedure mistakes that most new welders make that I want to share with you before you begin your journey on learning to weld. Not controlling the heat and weld puddle resulting in poor weld penetration and poor weld strength. Make sure that you always take your time and get good weld penetration. If you rush the welding procedure and go too fast you will risk getting a cold weld with little to no penetration, resulting in a weak weld and possible weld failure.
The 3 Most Dangerous Mistakes Beginner Welders Make!
Most farmers may not realize that adjusting the volts, amps, and wire speed on wire welders can produce transfer modes fine-tuned to thick metal. Globular transfer short arc : Voltage, amperage, and feed speed are higher than the standard short circuit mode. This results in large globs of wire expelling off the end of the wire to enter the weld puddle. This mode provides deep penetrating welds on thick material, but it produces a lot of spatter. Spray arc transfer: The volts, amps, and wire speed are higher than in globular mode.
Welds may not be the first thing that comes to mind when a magnificent skyscraper or immaculate vintage vehicle catches your eye, but it should be. Everything we see or use in our daily lives was welded or made by equipment that was. Welding is the only way of joining two or more pieces of metal together to make them act as a single piece.
