New To Welding

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I am currently working on my first project that will need to involve welding in order to join two metals. However I am unsure as to what specific type i require, I own a sack truck that has the same type of weld that i need for my design, therefore i have attached JPEGS showing the weld, could anyone help me out and shed some light on what form of weld this is?

cheers for the help!

 

could i ask another question regarding welding? is it possible, to join two pieces of tubular steel, 25mm in diameter, wall thickness no greater than 3, by welding them together? as welding is new to me, im not entirely sure if this can be done, therefore dont want to commit to a design before im certain its viable, Ive included a rough diagram of the join im trying to achieve,

 

thanks

It is not of great importance to know the geometric type of the welding. What matters is the actual welding process. So if it is MIG or TIG (called GMAW , GTAW now) or oxyacetylene or resistance welding, laser welding etc. is important. And the type of materails you use is important there. You can sure weld two steel pipes. The type of steel will determine the exact process, and the importance of the structure is important too. So you can use oxyacetylene welding for normal carbon steels, but cannot weld stainless steel or aluminium with it. GTAW can weld almost anything.
