18 May Welding In Dorset
Here at Rowtec, our workshop is constantly busy with new materials coming in and finished products going out. We use both MIG and TIG welding within our workshop, MIG stands for ‘Metal Inert Gas’ and TIG means ‘Tungsten Inert Gas’.
MIG welding is an arc welding process in which a continuous solid wire electrode is fed through a welding gun and into the weld pool, joining the two base materials together. A shielding gas is also sent through the welding gun and protects the weld pool from contamination. The technical name for it is ‘Gas Metal Arc Welding’, or GMAW; the slang name for it is ‘Wire Welding’. We tend to use MIG welding for the majority of our projects here at Rowtec.
TIG welding, also known as ‘Gas Tungsten Arc Welding’ (GTAW), is an arc welding process that uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to produce the weld. The weld area and electrode are protected from oxidation or other atmosphere contamination by an inert shielding gas, argon or helium, and a filler metal is normally used, though some welds, known as autogenous welds do not require it.
Here at Rowtec, we will not let a product go out the door unless we are 100% happy with the quality of it, so you can count on us providing our best work each and every time. We take great care and attention when it comes to the production of work. We triple check all measurements and materials to guarantee the best end product for our clients. All of our fabricators have gained years of experience in this industry and provide quality work on every project thrown their way.
