The world is advancing at a rapid pace with innovations
coming from all sides and robotic exoskeletons are making headlines. Not too
long ago these “power suits” were nothing more than science-fiction but not
anymore. Thanks to enhanced technology and advanced engineering, exoskeletons
are becoming increasingly popular across several sectors.
Today, CNC Machining is involved in so many industries as these machines have revolutionised the manufacturing sector. These machines are widely used and some of the major players include aerospace, automotive, medical manufacturing, construction and woodworking.
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.
Common techniques for joining two materials include fastening,
stitching and glueing but there’s no denying that welding provides the best
results. More specifically, one of the most modern methods is ultrasonic
welding. Compared to other joining methods, welds create stronger bonds that
last remarkably longer and a much better finish.
