What are the best metals to work with when welding?
Almost all metals can be welded. However, there are different welding
processes involved for welding similar metals and dissimilar metals. We
are here to discuss some of the best metals to work with when welding:
1. Steel Welding
There are various types of steel that require welding and each of
them require different type of technique and tools. However, some of the
steels cannot be welded too. Depending on the type of steel and the
amount of carbon presence, specific type of tools and techniques are
applicable. For instance steel with low carbon content is apt for spot
Steel alloys with high carbon content are most likely to become hard
welds that could crack, as they are brittle in nature. However, this
brittleness can be reduced through tempering. Ferritic stainless steel
as well as Austenitic steel can be welded too, though these are very
hard and need high temperatures of spot welding. Another hard stainless
steel that is not ideal to be welded is the Martensitic stainless steel.
2. Aluminum Welding
Aluminum can be welded using clean surfaces that are oxide free. This
metal also needs high power welding process. However, aluminum metal
welding could work out costly, as the cleaning process for oxide-free
surface adds to the cost. Though the cost is more, once cleaned, the
welding process is easy and prevents surface tension too while being
In general, it is advised to use a TUG or Tungsten Inert Gas welding
equipment with a blue flame set. Blue flame provides the maximum heat to
melt down the metal to be conducive for welding. It is an ideal
solution to preheat this aluminum metal before the welding process to
ease the entire process.
3. Welding of Copper Alloy
Copper alloys as well as Copper are normally welded through the arc
welding process. Arc welding provides the required intensity to Copper
and its alloys to complete fusion though the surrounding base metal is
heated only to the minimum required.
In general, Copper blends well with tin and zinc and can be welded
through arc welding process. Majority of times, flat position is used to
weld the alloys of Copper as well as Copper. This is because; Copper is
fluid in nature when it is welded. Horizontal positions are normally
used when there is a requirement of T-joints and corner joints.
Though most of the metals whether they are similar or dissimilar can
be welded, different metals require different set of tools as well as
different type of welding technique. This is based on the melting point,
cooling point, and several other properties of the associated metals.
