Welding flux is crucial as a prime anti-oxidising
agent most commonly associated with arc welding. Choosing the right one will play
an important role in the final quality of the weld. As anyone in the industry knows,
becoming a welder is no easy feat as they are put to the test with extensive
training. Welders must familiarise themselves with the various weld types, practices
and the components for each welding method.
Did you know that flux core welding is known as one of
the oldest arc welding methods? In this case, age has no bearing as is it
remains one of the most effective and widely used methods for joining metal. The
way it works is pretty straightforward as flux prevents welds from interacting
with the environment, including air. Without flux, the base and filler material
will interact with the atmosphere forming oxides or other unwanted compounds.
The construction industry has evolved significantly
with many new and improved methods such as structural steel fabrication. This
process, along with welding, is demanding and you should only consult
experienced fabricators as it requires expert knowledge, skills and resources.
For a successful project, from manufacturing
structural steel beams and steel balustrades to components and equipment, every
good fabricator should follow a specific process. A less experienced company
may not be able to perform the necessary tasks which could compromise product
The term “fabrication” means to make something from
raw materials whether it’s wood, plastic or certain types of metals. Several
industries currently benefit from aluminium fabrication which refers mostly to
the construction of metal structures. Choosing a material is a critical
decision in all aspects of the production but so is the finishing process.
Although you can fabricate any metal, aluminium is
considered one of the most common resulting in big demand for aluminium
fabrication services across the world. It’s not surprising if you consider that
aluminium is all around us in our homes and office buildings. Some of the most
common are aluminium gates and aluminium frameworks used for doors, windows and
An engineering company can only be successful with
high-quality custom fabrication coupled with expert knowledge, experience and
continuous investment. We’re not only talking about investing in equipment but
also staff training and hiring. In order to provide the quality and service
excellence customers deserve, equipment and staff must be of the highest level.
There are three core factors that determine success in manufacturing and that includes production cost, quality and speed. While each component plays a crucial role, manufacturers must fully commit to all three to reach and remain within the top tier.
