How to Drill Stainless Steel

Stainless steel, also known as “inox steel,” is an alloy of steel with a minimum of around 10.5% chromium, based on its mass. It is known for its corrosion-resistance, high heat resistance, and high ductility. These characteristics of stainless steel make it quite difficult to cut or drill. Although there are different families of stainless …

Understanding Micro Welding

Micro welding is a precision type of welding that is typically designed to join together delicate minute components. It is the process of welding together ferrous and nonferrous metal parts of the minute thickness of less than 0.5 mm with the cross-section of up to 10 sq. mm, and it produces welding beads of .065 …

Understanding MIG Welding Stainless Steel

Welding stainless steel angle fillet.

MIG or Metal Inert Gas welding otherwise known as Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) is one of the most popular and widely used arc welding processes for joining stainless steel and other metals. In MIG welding, the continuous wire electrode is automatically fed to the welding torch at a user-defined speed. Likewise, the externally-fed shielding gas …

How To Stick Weld

Stick welding also called Shielded Metal Arc Welding, is among one of the most demanding processes to learn. Especially for those who do not weld every day or are new to welding. Experienced welders make this process look easy. They take a stinger, insert an electrode in and give us some tremendous looking welds one …
