IntroductionDuring the MIG-MAG process, the contact tip can be mounted in the welding gun in different ways. This can have quite an impact on the welding result. The following story
Classification according to the standard In NEN-EN-ISO 14175 standard, gases are divided into main and subgroups. In this article we discuss four main groups of gases that are most commonly
This article is about the role that gas plays in gas arc welding processes. We focus on the electrical welding processes. The oxy-fuel welding processes are not considered in this
"Why do tungsten electrodes sometimes split when I am welding aluminium?" Splitting tungsten electrodes is a common problem while welding aliminium. Someone asked me this both during Welding Week 2019

Mill-scale; how is it formed, what are its characteristics and more importantly, how can you remove it? Piet van der Horst explaines it all in this article. During the warm,
Important founders The history of TIG welding starts in 1890 when C.J. Coffin receives a patent for welding in a non-oxidizing gas. He used a carbon rod as an electrode.
This is part 2 about solid versus cored wire for MAG welding. Part 1 is about the different types of wire and their properties. This part looks in more detail
