We continue to publish articles on various types of welding. Today we have semi-automatic welding in line.
Semi-automatic welding is a type of welding in which the process of joining parts takes place using the simultaneous supply of the electrode wire and shielding gas. The gas protects heated and molten metals from the harmful effects of the external environment.
In semi-automatic welding, argon, carbon dioxide is usually used. Semi-automatic welding is widely used in various fields as this type of welding is capable of welding both non-ferrous and ferrous metals.
It is worth noting that semi-automatic welding can weld thin metals with a thickness of 0.5mm and metals with a thickness of 30mm! And you can weld in all spatial locations!
Semi-auto welding is excellent for most welding jobs!
Now about the pros and cons of semi-automatic welding
- good working conditions for the welder;
- small deformations of the product;
- welding work in all spatial positions;
- welding of both thin metal and metal with a thickness of up to 30 mm;
- even a welder with basic knowledge can do the job;
- very high quality welded seam;
- very high work performance.
- rather low mobility due to the gas cylinder;
- automatic welding has protection depending on phenomena such as: rain, wind, etc.
