Deciding on the Correct Welding Procedure for Your Job

Every job is unique and has specific requirements to meet local codes, personal preferences and strict deadlines. Choosing the right welding procedure will help ensure the quality and longevity of your build. If you are unsure about the type of welding that is best suited for your project, contact the experts at Freehold Welding for assistance and top quality work.

Types of Welding
Different types of welding are suited to different jobs, materials and environments. These are the welding procedures most commonly used:

  • Tig Welding – This type of welding is best if you are using stainless steel, nickel alloys, aluminum, magnesium, titanium, cobalt or copper alloys. The process can take longer and the metal should be clean to get a proper weld. For this reason, Tig welding is better suited to new and indoor projects.
  • Stick Welding or ‘Smaw’ – If you have an outdoor job that requires welding, stick is usually the best type of welding. Inclement weather won’t interrupt the weld and the metal does not have to be as clean for great results.
  • Short Circuit Mig Welding – This option is best for steel, stainless steel and aluminum. It is fast and can be completed for general fabrications. If speed is your top priority and your job suits it, Mig welding could be the right option for you.
