They are very good in performing precision welding of fabrications and heavy equipments as well as in repair and installation of structural equipments. There are 4 important methods of metal transfer in Gas Metal Arc welding which includes spray, pulsed-spray, globular, short-circuiting etc and every type has its own properties and corresponding benefits and drawbacks. The Gas metal arc welding was initially developed as a technique to weld non-ferrous metals especially aluminum and later it was applied for steels and iron since it reduced welding time when compared to other techniques used for welding. At present gas metal arc welding is the most common and widely used welding technique in industries due to its speed and versatility. It is used for welding metals such as steel, aluminum and stainless steel.

Another common welding technique is GTAW (Gas Tungsten Arc welding) in which welding region is protected from contamination from atmosphere using shielding gas (inert gases like argon) and filler materials used during the welding process. 

It is generally used for welding thin sections of light metals like magnesium, copper and aluminum alloys along with stainless steel. This technique also gives greater control and flexibility in welding for the operator when compared to other processes like gas metal arc welding and shielded metal arc welding which allows for higher quality and stronger welds.

Another common method is Oxyacetylene welding which uses heat created by gas flame for melting the base metal. The gas flame is produced through combustion of fuel and oxygen and generally used fuels are hydrogen, natural gas, butane and propane. Oxygen and acetylene is burnt at around 6300 degrees which is the hottest for any gas flame and has potential to melt almost any type of metals. The oxyacetylene welding is versatile process which can be used for heating, cutting, brazing and soldering of metals. It is the best method for portable welding and is cheaper when compared to arc welding. It can weld any thickness of metals and is used for heavy equipments. It is hard to master and some safety issues are concerned regarding flammability of acetylene and high pressure used in the gas cylinders. The experts at Highland Welding Services are good in all types of welding processes and guarantee 100 percent perfection in their workmanship.
