Portable Spot Welding machines allow you to quickly join together several metal parts or pieces with the use of a portable arc welding machine. This allows you to join thin metal strips, thinner than even steel, without using tongs or a press like traditional arc welding does. There are many different kinds of these machines that are available in the market today. Here is information on each type of these machines and their uses, so you can choose the one that suits your welding needs.
High Tensile Portable Spot Welding: This is a type of portable welding that uses a high tensile alloy wire as the electrode. The high tensile wire is heated by the gas tungsten electrode through a shielded high temperature arc. The process of High Tensile Portable Welding (HTPW) uses a lower energy per arc than the traditional tig welder. However, this is one of the most dangerous welding processes in welding. It produces a very high amount of heat that can burn the user’s hand, can severely burn the eye if struck, and can even be fatal in rare cases.
Compact Design: Using modern machinery, the compact design makes it ideal for mobile welding operations. This type of machine has a compact body with a metal feed plate that is manually traversed to weld. It is also more compact than other types of portable welders. This one is available in two different electrode types – bipolar or direct contact. The advanced compact design allows it to use modern technology like a valve for shielding gas and an adjustable weld control for fine-tuning the arc.
Adjustable Welding Wires: The weld control allows you to specify the angle of the arc for the specific wire ends. This way, you can get a more customized arc color. The adjustable weld control also offers a longer functional life of the wire ends. The weld control can work in different metals such as copper, steel, aluminum, and stainless steel.
Portable Wirefeed Plate Style: Another important aspect that the manufacturer of the portable welders should consider is the wirefeed plate. The welds can be very heavy, so it needs to be mounted in a way that it does not cause undue stress on the body of the machine. Many welders have solved this problem by designing the wirefeed plates with either a ball bearing or threaded rod. They are then mounted into the machine so that there is no need to worry about them.
This article has tried to cover some of the points on how manufacturers can improve on their weld performance by using a portable welding machine. Specifically, we discussed about how the quality of the weld is determined and about the ways to control the weld quality for optimal performance. These are just some of the topics that we are looking at to help organizations, we are engaged in providing the highest quality of weld services. There are many other topics out there that we can discuss with our clients. In fact, we will surely be able to help you achieve your welding goals.
