A lot of people are afraid of working with tungsten because it can be very dangerous, but with a suspended spot welding process you can have a much safer, and much more professional looking weld on any surface. This is perfect for joining different metals and all kinds of other things. One of the most popular ways to use this type of welding process is to join metal together to create some kind of decorative look. In order to do this you will need to have a good welding guide so that you can see what you’re doing and so that you can keep everything straight. There are many different applications for this method, and they all require some kind of welding guide.
The first difference between a suspended and stand-alone weld is where your torch is actually located. Stand-alone welds use a big spark ignition source to give you the direct shielding and guiding the arc for you to weld onto whatever you’re joining. With a suspended spot welding process you actually get a smaller electrode, and this is what gives you the direct arc that you need to weld onto whatever you want. When you’re doing any kind of decorative projects you really want to get one of these types of welds because they are much safer and easier to work with than other types. You can even use them to weld your cars with the right kind of equipment if you want to!
This type of welding actually has many different safety precautions in place in order to protect both the welder and the material being welded. When you have a suspended spot welding process the welder is sitting in a chair or on a bench, and the material being welder is right there in front of the welder. There is no need to move from where you’re sitting to where the arc is, which makes this type of welding very convenient. All you have to do is sit back, relax, and watch the arc is emitted from the tip of the welder’s torch. The only time a welder may move is when the torch is being refueled, at which time the welder sits still and doesn’t have to move.
This process is very convenient because it means less mistakes, and it also means you don’t have to worry about touching the electrodes with your bare hands. Because there are no electrodes there is no chance of getting any electrical conductions on the materials you’re welding. If there were, the weld would break and there would be a lot of wasted material. The best way to ensure you don’t come into contact with the electrodes is to wear gloves. This is very important when you use welding torches.
The good news is that most welding torches sold today actually have built in air purifiers to keep the air clean while you weld, which should be something you look for when you buy new welding torches. When you buy a spark torch, it should have a built in air cleaner, because it does emit quite a bit of fumes. The same goes for an arc welding torch. However, most of these products don’t have built in air purifiers, so you’ll have to make sure to buy one separately. It’s a small price to pay for the peace of mind it will bring to not having to breathe in all that toxic chemical exhaust.
There are other things to look for in welding torches, but safety is always the first thing to look out for. It is very important that you don’t touch the electrodes of any torch, even if you’re only holding it next to your face! Don’t use a torch that has a metal flux tip, because it will quickly cause you to get arc blisters. Make sure the welding manufacturer offers an excellent safety guarantee on their product and make sure it works efficiently.
