What are the parameters to select the right welding between gas welding and arc welding?
Gas welding basically used for weaker joints(in sheets) and arc
welding for stronger one(plates).
mobile welding (not in a shop)is the ideal time for arc welding
. gas welding is the way to go as far as production is concerned ,
but requires environment with little air circulation or wind , plus
gas bottle , machine , and a short lead , which makes it ideal for
Gas welding - generally use for welding of thin plates/pipes.
Less heat input and less likely to burn off the edge of the plates
(undercut). It is a more expensive process because of gas
Arc welding - use for thicker plates usually with larger size
electrodes. Higher weld production rate. Shielding by means of
Both processes can meet the required mechanical properties
