Welding, without the proper safety precautions, can be a dangerous and unhealthy practice. However, with the welding equipment avaliable today the risks of injury and death associated with welding can be greatly reduced. Most welding procedures involve an open electric arc or flame, the risk of burns is high. Protect yourself and others with the applicable welding safety equipment..
Gas Welding Equipment
Gas welding or oxy-acetylene welding is preformed by mixing oxygen and acetylene gas in a purpose built welding torch or blowpipe. When the tow gasses are burned they create more than twice the melting point of the most common metals. See here for gas welding equipment
Welding Equipment - Inverters
The function of a welding inverter is used as the power supply sources in welding shops and in feild maintenance.. The main advantages of welding inverters are first, the main power transformer, operating at 20,000Hertz is vastly more efficient than 60Hertz transformers found in traditional welding equipment. This means the welder can be much smaller and more energy efficient,. as opposed to transformer based machines that typically weigh 400 pounds...
Welding Robots is the use of mechanized programmable welding equipment, that completely automate a welding process by performing both the welding and handling of the parts to be welded. Welding robots are commonly used for resistance spot welding and arc welding in high production applications, such as the automotive industry.
