Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

How do you choose a Chicago welding service?

In comparison to other fabrication techniques, welding is a field where quality and experience matter significantly. For the Chicago area, one thing that’s important to consider is the size of the company providing the welding service, as large projects require companies with extensive production capabilities. 

If your project is unique, you should see how much experience a welding provider has in fulfilling custom work. It’s also important to research their reputations and get a better understanding of the quality they can deliver. For example, it’s important to know whether or not the company has AWS-certified welders.

What are the different welding methods and their applications?

Welding is a highly specialized field that includes nearly 30 different fabrication processes involving elements ranging from gas to electricity, laser beams, and more. Some of the most common welding methods are:

  • Stick/arc welding (SMAW). This method uses an electric current to generate enough heat to melt a consumable electrode and the metal workpiece to create the weld. Arc welding is used on heavy metals, in steel erection applications, pipeline welding, repairing heavy equipment, and more. 
  • Metal inert gas welding (MIG). This type of welding relies on a gun that is continuously fed with a consumable electrode. An external gas is used to shield the metal from environmental factors. This method requires less heat input than other techniques and works well on alloys like stainless steel, copper, and nickel. It is used in plumbing applications as well as construction and automotive repairs. 
  • Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG). In this method, an autogenous weld is created without filler metal by melting two pieces together. It is used in aerospace applications, vehicle manufacturing, and more.
