We can perform all these applications in our facility or mobile on-site.

Discussing a welding project for your industrial or architectural project can be confusing due to the large amount of terminology in describing the application of welding. To help you understand proposals from our staff you'll need to understand some important and useful acronyms and terms below.

· Welding - The process of permanently joining together two pieces of metal or plastic using heat or electricity. Welding typically causes a large amount of light and heat and requires protective helmets to cover
the head and face.

· Electrode - A device that emits electricity or allows it to pass through into another object

· Power Supply - The source of heat or electricity used to make welding possible

· Oxy - Type of welding that uses a torch that
contains oxyacetylene to heat and melt the
metal or plastic

· Arc - Type of welding in which electricity travel
s from the welding machine or energy supply into
an electrode, causing the material being welded
to melt and then be joined together

· TIG - A type of arc welding where the electrode
is made from tungsten. A gas is used to protect
the surface of the metal during the welding process.
TIG is short for Tungsten Inert Gas.

· MIG - Type of welding where a machine supplies
metal wire that is then melted using a gun that transfers
electric current to the wire. The wire then binds the
materials together; MIG is short for Metal Inert Gas.
