Popular Types of Welding Processes

Popular Types of Welding Processes

When considering an investment in custom welding systems, it’s important that your whole team understand the basics of the welding process. Knowledge of these processes, along with guidance from our engineering team, will help you determine which system will best help boost your business’s bottom line. To that end, we’ve put together this collection of information about the popular types of welding processes.

 

What is Welding?

Welding is the joining together of two pieces of metal. It is done by heating those metals to a temperature high enough to cause softening or melting. This can be done with or without the use of pressure.

Welding can also include the use of a third material called filler metal. That metal is also heated to a melting point during the welding process and allowed to flow into the new joint formed by the two original pieces of metal. Filler metals help a weld meet certain types of industrial standards such as corrosion resistance or weight capacity.

 

Popular Categories of Welding Processes

Welding processes are grouped into categories based upon each process’s method of energy transfer. Each category has recommended applications that help the user know when to use which category. It’s also important to note that each one varies in the difficulty of weld procedure, cost, materials involved, and final quality of the weld.

 

Arc Welding

This category merges two metals into one by heating them with an arc. That arc is made of electricity that reaches the average heat of 6500 degrees. These processes can be accomplished with or without the use of pressure as well as with or without filler metal.

Oxyfuel Welding

This category heats the two metals with an oxyfuel gas flame to merge them into one. Just as with arc welding, these processes can be accomplished with or without the use of pressure as well as with or without filler metal.

Resistance Welding

Resistance welding joins two surfaces with the heat that emerges from resistance. Specifically, the resistance that occurs between the work pieces and the flow of the welding current. This all happens with a combination of applied pressure and the power of the circuit that the work pieces are a part of.

Solid State Welding

Solid State welding allows two metals to attach by the application of pressure without melting any of the joint components. This occurs when the right type and amount of pressure causes a transfer of atoms which then changes the chemical makeup of the surfaces.

 

Custom Welding Systems

Bancroft engineers use years of first-hand knowledge to help in the decision-making process.  We understand that many times customers need to approve samples to ensure the process is going to be successful.  Different prototypes can be created upon request to test the different designs and materials.

Weld Cladding & Overlays – What to Know

Industries that work with harsh materials and/or environments require a quality weld that will withstand those challenges. In these cases, weld cladding and overlays are an excellent solutions. Read on to learn more about weld cladding and how custom welding systems can help with creating those heavy-duty fabrications and repairs.

What is Weld Cladding

Weld cladding, also known as weld overlay (WOL), is a welding process that joins one or more types of metals together. This is done by creating a layer out of the metal(s) which is welded to the surface of the base metal. Weld cladding is also commonly referred to as corrosion resistance alloy (CRA) weld overlay or hardfacing. These terms differentiate the new properties which are transmitted in the process.

The weld cladding process is extremely valuable for several reasons. In addition to creating a more resilient weld, weld cladding also helps with the preservation of more limited and costly materials by only requiring a small amount which welds to a more common base. Typical cladding materials include the following:

  • A duplex stainless steel
  • An austenitic stainless steel
  • A copper-base alloy
  • A nickel-base alloy

Common Applications

Weld cladding is one of the top surface overlay techniques for applications that require corrosion-resistant materials. It can also provide weld quality enhancement in hardness, wear characteristics, conductivity, prolong service life, or serve as a repair. There are many industrial applications for this technique.

  • Marine
  • Offshore
  • Paper/pulp
  • Oil/gas
  • Chemical processing

Pulsed Welding for Thick Materials

If you or your welding team work frequently with heavy industry and equipment manufacturing, you’re probably all too familiar with difficult welding situations that come with high costs. I’m talking about welding thick metals with large joints in a variety of challenging angles and curved surfaces.

Pulsed welding is one of the top methods that experienced welders use to make those projects easier to successfully manage. Today our robotic welding experts will be talking a little bit about what it is and why it’s a great choice for many applications.

 

What is Pulsed Welding?

Pulsed welding is a variation of the spray-arc process. Where the spray-arc process can be an excellent choice for a flat or horizontal position, pulsed welding can be used in any number of angles and directions.

Pulsed welding forms a single droplet at a time by using a fluctuating wave form of the power source. The higher peak current is used to form the molten metal droplet. It is then followed immediately by the lower peak current which causes it to detach and pushes the droplet into the weld puddle.

Benefits of Pulsed Welding for Thick Materials

Pulsed welding is a superior choice for high-deposition joining of thick materials. It’s simple and quick to set up and offers a method that doesn’t require the talent of a veteran welder. In addition to those benefits, other pros include:

  • Cost-effective
  • Lower total average current than with conventional spray arc
  • Proper penetration without as much heat input
  • Low-spatter

With having less spatter and more control of the heat input with pulse, it will drastically reduce the amount of post-weld clean up along with less re-work.

pulsed welding automtion

When Not to Use Pulsed Welding

There are some cases when an alternate method to pulsed welding is preferred. It’s important to identify these conditions and use the best possible techniques and tools every time. The top two times when we recommend not using pulsed welding are with solid steel wires greater than 5/64 inch and applications that require a flux-core wire.

 

Automatic Welding System

Bancroft’s expertise & technology will improve your welding operations. From simple, stand-alone machines to full robotic welding automation systems.

Seam Welding Machines

Seam Welding, An Overview

One of the most widely used welding techniques for creating an airtight and watertight seal is seam welding.  The seam welding process can be done using GMAW, GTAW or Resistance Welding.  Today we’re going to be sharing some basic information about this high-quality welding option as well as insights about how automation can improve your team’s seam welding process—let’s dive into it!

 

What is Seam Welding?

The process of joining workpieces made of similar or dissimilar materials along a continuous seam is known as seam welding. One of the biggest benefits to seam welding is that the materials can be similar or dissimilar. Seam welding comes in three forms:

  • Traditional Seam Welding: Overlapping weld nuggets using GTAW or GMAW process.
  • Friction Seam Welding: A continuous weld is completed with heat generated by creating friction rather than with electrodes.
  • Resistance Seam Welding: Resistance seam welding is a technique in which the welding electrodes are motor-driven wheels.
GTAW Seam Weld

Applications for Seam Welding

Within the world of welding, seam welding is one of the most preferred ways of using a continuous weld to join two different pieces of metal. Seam welding offers minimal distortion of heat and results in airtight and watertight seals with no gas formation. Because of these benefits (and more), seam welding has many common applications:

  • Barrel and exhaust systems
  • Pressure vessels
  • Steel drums
  • Radiators
  • Vehicle fuel tanks
  • Refrigerators
  • Oil transformers
  • Much more!

As if that weren’t already enough, there are even more production benefits to an automated seam welding process. An arc seam welding machine can be used for the mainstream manufacturing process, as it can produce high-quality welded seams with 100 percent penetration.

Top 3 Ways Welding Automation Can Bridge the Skill Gap

Back in 2015, the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and the American Welding Society (AWS) were already projecting a shortage of greater than 291,000 skilled welders for the year 2020-2022. Yet we find ourselves here in that future and it’s just as competitive as ever. Why? Because there will always be a demand for skilled welders. Today we’re going to discuss three ways welding automation can help your company meet that demand in creative and effective ways.

 

What is the Welding Skill Gap?

A skill gap can occur in any industry. It happens when the demand for a specialized skill set, and the supply of experienced professionals do not match up. In welding, it means that the younger, inexperienced welders who are new to the trade simply don’t have the quality of work that their retiring, veteran welder counterparts have [yet].

We are seeing this gap grow in the fabrication industry for several reasons:

  • Lack of experienced master welders because many are near (or at) retirement age
  • Emphasis on 4-year degrees versus trade school causing students to reconsider entering the trades
  • Skilled tradespeople retiring before mentoring less experienced welders
  • New welders lacking hands-on experience

The frustration is felt by both the employers and the welders. That’s where welding automation comes in. Robotic and semi-automated welding solutions offer a practical, smart solution to bridge the gap between what your fabrication quality demands and what your team needs without waiting for new welders to reach a specific skill level.

1. ) Welding Automation Improves Safety

In 2019, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported 6,030 total cases of nonfatal occupational injuries and illnesses involving days away from work among welding, soldering, and brazing workers. Many of these injuries may have been avoided with more training and better equipment.

Welding automation provides an extra measure of safety to your team in several ways:

  • Machines have built-in safety equipment to protect humans such as guarding, fences and sensors.
  • The process of automating reduces the possibility of spontaneous injuries through simple, streamlined programming.
  • Just a simple welding positioner can offer lightweight, easy-to-handle solutions to meet even the most demanding, repetitive welding jobs.

With automated welding, even the most inexperienced member on your team will advance his/her skill level. Automation programming protects them from making simple mistakes that often result in injury.

2.) Welding Automation Increases Efficiency

Welding automation takes human error out of the equation, which helps improve safety as well as increase efficiency and quality. When programmed by a skilled welder, these machines can effectively multiply that skilled welder’s work. It’s essentially like cloning your best welder’s skill set and applying that ability to any team member. Imagine the effect this would have on your productivity!

 

3.) Welding Automation Ensures Quality

Part of the process of building high-quality welding systems includes rigorous testing at many phases of the design process. Bancroft’s full-service staff will provide installation, training, preventive maintenance, and production process improvements to make sure your robotic welding system solution is a success. This will ensure a high-quality weld no matter the welder’s skill level.

GMAW-MIG-Wire-welding-problems

GMAW, MIG or Wire Welding Problems

Whether you have been welding for years or just getting started in your career, addressing and solving GMAW, MIG or wire welding defects can be extremely frustrating. The team at Bancroft Engineering is here to empower you to take your GMAW / MIG / wire welding operation to the next level. Read on to learn about common wire welding problems and tips for achieving high-quality welds.

Basics of GMAW Welding

GMAW welding, commonly known as MIG welding or wire welding, utilizes a semi-automated welding system.  The process uses a solid wire—or flux core wire vs a long “stick” electrode. During this process, an electric arc forms between the wire electrode and the metal—the emerging heat causes the metal to join and melt.

Common Wire Welding Defects

While many weld defects are usually easily spotted, some won’t show up until your part goes through the quality assurance process. It’s also worth noting that just because a weld doesn’t look “good” to the eye, doesn’t mean it’s bad!  The following are the most common MIG welding problems:

  • Pinholes
  • Porosity issues
  • Too much weld deposit
  • Improper weld penetration
  • Lake of fusion
  • Cracking
  • Spatter
  • Lack of uniformity
  • Discoloration

Conditions Creating Poor MIG Welds?

Some of the most likely reasons your MIG process is resulting in poor quality welds is one or a combination of the following:

  • Impurities or improper cleaning
  • Skipping pre- or post-heat processes
  • Using the wrong filler metal
  • Using the wrong shielding gas
  • Running the wire at the wrong speed
  • Using too little (or too much) voltage
  • Skipping joint preparation steps
  • Improper welding techniques/setup

Other things to check are part fit up or damaged equipment (cables, clamps, etc.).

 

Tackling Quality Assurance / Quality Control

QA/QC plays a critical role in ensuring reliable welds are produced with minimal rework. The best way to catch defects is to incorporate quality testing throughout the welding process to confirm your weld meets the needed specifications. This will ensure that issues are caught early on, allowing for adjustments to be made and preventing further defective output.

Choosing the Right Equipment

Utilizing the right equipment will make or break your welding output! A high-quality welding equipment builder will help recommend parameters for your welding needs. They can also walk you through the proper wire feed speed, amperage, voltage and compatible shielding gas. The experienced team of semi-automated MIG welding system builders at Bancroft Engineering can help you get the proper welding equipment in place and running smoothly.

welding machine section 179 tax deduction

Using Section 179 Tax Deductions for a Welding Machine in 2020

Whether you’re buying a new machine for the first time or are ready to upgrade existing equipment, the Section 179 tax deduction is something you’ll want to look into. When you purchase automated welding equipment from Bancroft Engineering, you will not only be improving your manufacturing process but also saving your business money on your 2020 taxes with Section 179 expensing.

 

How Does Section 179 Expensing Work for Welding Equipment Purchases?

The Section 179 Tax deduction is for all businesses that purchase (or finance) new and used business equipment during the 2020 tax year.

Section 179 of the United States Internal Revenue Code (26 U.S.C. § 179) is now available which allows you to write-off up to $1,040,000 of a qualifying equipment purchase for 2020. This annual deduction amount is up from $1,000,000 in 2019.

In past years, when manufacturers purchased welding equipment, they would write it off little by little through depreciation. For example, if your business spent $80,000 on a piece of machinery, you might write off $20,000 per year for five years.

When you use Section 179 in 2020, a business can write-off the entire purchase price of qualified equipment for the current tax year. As in our previous example, if your business spends $80,000 on a piece of automated welding machinery, you can write off all $80,000 in the same tax year using Section 179. This is an attractive tax deduction for small and mid-sized businesses to take advantage of!

How to Qualify for Section 179 in 2020

If you’re considering whether or not to purchase new equipment this year, section 179 is an attractive tax deduction to take into consideration. It’s also easy to understand and apply. Most new and used tangible business equipment qualifies as long as it meets the following criteria:

  • Equipment must be installed and ready for service in the same tax year
  • More than 50% of the use of the equipment must be used for business

Real Example of Section 179 Expensing in 2020

Conquering the Challenges of Welding Stainless Steel

Automated Welding Systems + Stainless Steel

Stainless steel has been gaining popularity in applications across the fabrication industry for many years. This is mostly due to the material’s corrosion resistance, strength and overall resilience. From kitchen appliances, automotive products, medical equipment and much more, stainless steel is found all around us. While this low-maintenance metal has many benefits, it can cause a variety of welding challenges and frustrations!

 

Welding Stainless Steel Quick Facts:

  • There are hundreds of grades of stainless steel.

  • The most commonly used stainless steel includes 304 and 316.

  • Stainless steel is best known for its corrosion resistance, strength and workability.

  • Stainless steel has low susceptibility for bacterial growth, making it a popular choice for food-grade and medical products.

  • Some stainless steels can be 3-5 times more expensive than mild steel.

 

Choosing the right manual or automated welding system and process is key. Read on to learn about the common challenges to welding stainless steel and tips to overcome them.

  

Chromium Oxide

The thin layer of chromium oxide provides stainless steel with its “stainless” characteristic. This layer is one of the main attractors as it protects the material from harsh environments. The challenge when welding stainless steel is avoiding damage to this layer with spatter or slag as this can cause vulnerability to the end product. Post weld cleaning with the proper tools is essential to avoid this challenge.

 

Temperature Input

The alloy content of stainless steel conducts heat at a much slower rate than carbon steel. This means, the heat from the arc won’t distribute as easily throughout the material—causing heat concentration in the weld pool. This will lead to warping, burn-through and oxidation. An indicator that too much heat is being used on stainless steel is when the weld begins to form a rainbow of colors. While the colors may look like a work of art, it’s a red flag that the end product may not pass welding quality tests.

 

GMAW vs. GTAW

Historically, gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW) was the preferable method for working with stainless steels. However, as technology has progressed, gas metal arc welding (GMAW) has become more of a standard. This is due to the use of semi-automated welding equipment combined with state of the art controls which provide fast deposition rates, regulates heat input and improves consistency. Get in touch with Bancroft Engineering to discuss the many benefits of welding automation for stainless steel.

 

Finishing Processes

Stainless steel requires special finishing processes once the weld is complete. Don’t make the mistake of using steel brushes or polishing pads that have been used before on carbon steel—this will damage the protective oxide layer. Whether you need a matte, brushed or mirror finish, it’s important to use stainless-specific finishing tools such as finishing discs, belts and other tools.

 

Automated Welding Systems + Stainless Steel

Mastering how to weld stainless steel is a vital part of fabrication. Bancroft Engineering has years of experience building automated welding systems for stainless steel applications. We can help you optimize your production equipment and make huge welding improvements! Ready to upgrade? Give us a call today at 262-786-1880 or email: sales@bancrofteng.com

  4. Quality Assurance Checks

 

The Cost of Poor Weld Quality

Before we get into our tips, let’s review some of the most common welding problems:

  • Spatter
  • Porosity
  • Undercut
  • Deformation
  • Cracks
  • Poor weld penetration
  • Incorrect wire delivery

These issues are often structural in nature while also affecting the overall appearance of your part. Low weld quality will hurt your bottom line, be a strain on your work environment and negatively impact customer satisfaction. Some issues could even be a safety hazard resulting in damage, injuries to workers or worse!

 

Tip #1: Proper Preparation

The steps before the welding process takes place are some of the most critical! Learn more about tips to prepare metal before automatic welding right here. When you skip out on cleaning your metal surfaces, removing oxide layers or prepping the metals edge—you’re setting yourself up for disaster. It’s worth your time to complete all best-practice welding preparations so you can not only pass quality inspections but also get beautiful and clean welds!

 

Tip #2: In-Process Monitoring

Real time, in-process weld monitoring is a great way to stay on-top of weld quality and catch errors before they occur. Some techniques used today for process monitoring include sensors, lasers and vision-based monitoring. Seam tracking allows you to track weld position during the welding process. This results in better welds, improved path speed, decreased scrap and reduced cycle times. Check out our run-down of seam tracking and how to select the right solution for your project right here.
