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 welding.

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 melted.

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.
