Welding is a process that joins two pieces of metal by heating them until they melt and then fusing them together. Welding is used in a variety of applications, including construction, manufacturing, and aircraft maintenance.

Welding Basics

Welding is a process that joins two pieces of metal by heating them until they melt and then fusing them together. The most common type of welding is arc welding, which uses an electric arc to heat the metal. Other types of welding include gas welding and laser welding.

Welding Process

To weld two pieces of metal, you will need to prepare the metals by grinding or shaping them to the correct shape. You will also need to clean the surfaces of the metals and apply a coating of flux to help promote a good weld. You will then position the pieces to be welded together and use an electric arc to heat the metals until they melt. The molten metal will then flow into and fill the gaps between the pieces, joining them together.

Welding with Dimes

A Stack of Dimes

It is often asked of a welder who describes a good looking weld that he makes, and he will say something like stack of dimes. When you are welding, the stack of dimes you see looks like when the welding fluid freezes. It also cools at a different rate in one part of the weld and then in another part.

In welding, a stack of dimes can be seen that represents what happens when the weld freezes in one part and then cools in another part. In other cases, the stack of dimes that you see is the result of a physical weave. That weave is made by either a human welder or a robot welder, to fill larger gaps in the metal.

How to Weld Like a Stack of Dimes

When you are welding, it is important to keep the weld area clean. To do this, use a wire brush to remove any dirt, dust, or residue. You can also use a welder’s torch to clean the weld area. Make sure that the weld area is cool before you start welding. If it is too hot, the heat will cause the weld to break.

By weaving, the weld wire freezes in a pattern that is based on the back-and-forth movement of the wire. Every time the weave changes direction, it leaves a mark in the weld puddle, or a difference in the pattern. The longer the wire stays in one spot, the bigger the puddle that will be created. And, the larger the puddle, the bigger the dime that is formed in the weld. When it is possible, the robot’s controller will weave the fabric at any given distance, in inches or millimeters.

When you are finished welding, make sure to cool the weld area by using a welder’s chisel or a hammer and anvil. Once cooled, you can remove the weld by using a welder’s torch or a plasma cutter.
