7 KEYS FACTORS TO SELECT A FILLER METAL
Whether it’s a welding wire or stick electrode, the base material, joint design and more impact the choice of filler metal. Learn how to make the best selection.
UNDERSTANDING WELD CRACKING, ITS CAUSES AND REMEDIES
Weld cracking can happen when stick, MIG or flux-cored welding. Reduce the risk by understanding the causes and how to fix them. Learn how.
THE IMPACT OF SHIELDING GAS ON FILLER METALS
Shielding gas affects arc quality and stability, as well as a filler metal’s mechanical properties. Learn how it plays a role in welding performance.
A NEW WELDING WIRE CAN OFFER PRODUCTIVITY AND QUALITY BENEFITS
Implementing a new welding wire can be a cost-effective way to improve a welding operation and yield long-term benefits. Learn why you should change — and how to do it.
STICK WELDING STILL HAS A PLACE IN THE FABRICATION INDUSTRY
Stick welding, while slower than wire processes, is particularly helpful in fabrication applications with restricted joint access. Learn some basic guidelines to get the best results.
INCREASING ALUMINUM WELD STRENGTH AND QUALITY
Successful aluminum fabrication requires cleanliness and the appropriate filler metal. Learn how new aluminum welding wire technology increases weld strength and helps prevent failures.
