Welding Rod is a material that most technicians use in welding metal and electrical wires. By making two pieces of metal or electrical wires that are fused into one piece. to make those workpieces strong Able to bear various forces and still retain its original shape.
udo.co.th The equipment center, grinding machines, grinding wheels and various tools for welding work of all kinds. We have a team of highly experienced professionals to give advice and consultation to all customers.
We can divide the types of welding electrodes that are popularly used by technicians in various works into 6 main types as follows:
1. Incense Welding Wire or Covered Welding Electrode
It’s a type of electrical wire. That looks similar to its name, that is, incense. It is a welding wire on the outside that is coated with flux (Flux), and the inside is a metal wire. The metal wire can be divided into many types. Depending on our applications, such as steel welding electrodes and stainless steel welding electrodes It is a welding wire that is commonly used among welders. Because it is an inexpensive device. It also has a variety of sizes to choose from. Which ranges from 2.0, 2.6, 3.2, 4.0 and 5.0 etc.
2. Flux Cored Wire
It is a metal wire in the form of a coil. The body of the wire has a hollow core filled with paste inside the wire. Because this type of welding wire is quite expensive. But it has the advantage that it has high efficiency in use. It also welds quickly and makes our work beautiful as well.
3. Mig welding wire (MIG) or CO2 welding wire (MIG Welding Wire)
It is a bare metal electrode, that is, it is an electrode whose outer shell is not covered with a coating. It has the same coil shape as flux-filled wire. The properties of this type of welding wire are Can weld quickly, but must use carbon dioxide gas as well Therefore making it popular in industrial work and general structural work such as steel assembly work and automobile industry, etc.
4. Tig welding wire or argon welding wire (Tig Welding Rod)
It is a welding wire that is similar to MIG type welding wire. But the difference is that this type of welding wire has a straight line. Each line has a length of about 1 meter, commonly used in welding work that requires precision and refinement. The wire inside is steel, aluminum, stainless steel, brass and other metals, which have sizes ranging from 1.6, 2.0, 2.4 and 3.2 mm.
5. Gouging Electrode or Gouging Electrode
It is a welding wire that looks more round than other types of welding wire. It is popular for use in metal grooving, metal cutting or metal removal. to be separated from the workpiece In addition, this type of welding wire also has properties that can be used to clean the welding line. For preparing the workpiece before welding as well
6. Special welding wire
It is a special type of welding wire that is designed to be used in specific applications such as high tensile strength welding wire. hardfacing welding wire Inconel welding wire Nickel Alloy Welding Wire solder wire Aluminum electrodes and copper electrodes, etc.
