BMW Mini production may be first to use tactile laser welding in volume

BMW Mini production may be first to use tactile laser welding in volume | blog 1 | Scoop.it

Tactile laser welding is used to make the bonnet from eight pressed parts. The bonnet's outer panel is bent to touch the mating flange on the inner panel and joining uses a fine weld wire on the laser. Panels were previously roller-hemmed together with adhesive and seam sealer, but there was always the possibility of a void forming that could allow condensation to develop. A remote laser can produce long continuous joints of greater precision, a process quicker than spot welding and a group first.


Via Murry Shohat
jacob little's insight:

laser welding vs soldering welding is usually a more effective choice because the laser causes the heat to focus in one area nd make a cleaner cut vs. soldering which bend and discolors metal. the laser cut also leaves a seemless undetectable cuts compared to soldering which leaves big noticeable cuts

5 Helpful Tips to Improve Your TIG Welding Skills

 TIG welding is versatile

TIG welding might be a slow process but it most definitely is a very versatile one. Among all the other welding processes, it just might be the only one that is able to handle the most variety of materials, even those that are heavy-alloyed and toxic. TIG welding is also best for thin materials, thanks to its low heat input which prevents burn-throughs. And as if all these are not good enough, this welding process yields the highest quality welding, no matter what application.

Just because TIG welding yields the most positive results, it does necessarily mean that you can simply rely on your training and practice. Patience and efficiency are just as important as well. Below are some tips to help you improve these.

Use an inverter during TIG welding

The use of an inverter power source greatly improves your efficiency in TIG welding, providing you with a smooth arc for a consistent welding performance. Through this, the focus of the arc is narrowed, creating a narrower weld bead and minimizing the heat-affected zone. Thus, you are able to complete the welding job at a faster speed. Inverters also have a balance control feature, something that is very useful when working with aluminum. This will also allow you to finish the job faster.

Choose the right torch

The right TIG torch will help you have an efficient welding job. First of all, you need to select a torch that has good insulation. Also determine whether you will need a TIG torch that is water or air-cooled. Water-cooled are best for applications over 200 amps while air-cooled is used for low amps. Finally, consider what you will weld. If you will work for something that will require you to do some maneuvering, it would be best to pick a TIG welding torch that has a flexible neck.

Protect yourself

If it is at all possible, use gas lens as they will improve shielding gas coverage as well as offer you better joint accessibility (which should greatly improve your TIG welding efficiency. These lenses evenly distributes gas to help in the prevention of oxygen contamination as well as allow you to properly work in those heard-to-reach areas like the “K”, “T” and “Y” joints.

Avoid overwelding

Overwelding will greatly improve your efficiency in TIG welding and (probably more importantly) help you save on cash. This occurs when you put more weld metal in a particular joint then necessary because of a number of factors. To prevent this, you need to ensure that the joints of your welding project are not over-designed. Close fit-up and proper joint preparation are your best defenses against overwelding.

Get to the point

The type of tungsten that you will use will depend on your power source and material to be weld. The type and shape of the tungsten can have a big impact on your TIG welding efficiency. For DC and AC welding (with an inverter), a pointed or truncated tip is best. For lower amperage on thin materials, grind the tungsten to a point. On the other hand, grinding the tungsten to a truncated tip will be best of higher amp applications.

Remember that no TIG welding (or any welding operation for that matter) job yields a perfect result. However, if you want one that is near perfect, contact. With thirty years of experience under our belt, we have been creating the highest quality parts for a variety of technologies. We have been a Boeing approved supplier for more than three decades so we should be able to take on any TIG welding job with the best quality results.

jacob little's insight:

This gives you 5 ways to to increase the safety of yourself while welding. it says use the right torch, use a gas lens, different types of tungsten, use an inverter power source, and most importantly BE PATIENT. moving to fast in this line of business can be ricky to the job and yourself.

The Popularity Of TIG Welding

 

The Commencing Of TIG Welding

TIG welding is a technique that fuses 2 reactive metals like magnesium and aluminum. The TIG (tungsten inert fuel) welding was made known in the middle of the 1940's and ended up being very popular. Using aluminum in welding and other types of structural techniques turned extensively utilized with the introduction of this welding technique. During the course of the welding process, an arc is produced in between a pointed tungsten electrode and the surface area to be welded and the end result of the fuel protect is a nice weld. This type of welding technique protects against the incidence of oxidization.

TIG makes use of a pair of gases helium and argon to produce the fuel protect. Whenever these 2 types of gases are combined, the final result is a much better welding velocity and deeper welding penetration. Argon is often used in TIG welding considering that it is denser compared to air and it has much better coverage when welding. With TIG welding, a welder can accomplish much better with various kinds of weld particularly steel and aluminum. The filler rod is another important aspect in TIG welding. The filler rod is normally made from the same} materials as the base metallic. The filler rod is utilized for reinforcing joints and welding heavy metals.

TIG Welding Is Used By Leading Industries

Among one of the early users of TIG welding was actually the aerospace industry. They have a desire in TIG as a result of the 'fillers' that could be utilized to produce very strong bonds. This is actually also utilized in nuclear and petrochemical industries. Motorcycles and bicycle designs likewise utilized this sort of welding. TIG welding has a number of benefits however it may not be ideal for all types of welding needs.

Whenever creating consumer merchandise where looks is of significance, TIG is an ideal choice. TIG generates a spectacular finishing coat. It will definitely be remaining since there no reason for grinding the surface. The precious time spared while doing so is quite beneficial. In most industrial procedures, high quality is given a lot of significance as compared to velocity. TIG is slower compared to MIG however the weld results are much better. TIG welding can join a pair of different components or any weldable components despite having thickness of .55 millimeters. In fine jewelry, even gold could be welded by TIG. Chrome cobalt frameworks in the field of dentistry can likewise be welded as well as titanium.

TIG requires very experienced welders to work the equipment. During the course of the welding procedure the two hands are utilised one hand in the equipment and the other hand is the filler wire. But welders with experienced from fuel welding the swap is very easy simply because they are experienced to filling wire manually feeding.

TIG Welding Should Be Handled With Extra Care

Extra care should be observed when working with a TIG equipment since this is among the most risky welding technique. If preventative measure is not observed, the light made from the weld will produce an 'arc eye" to the welder that usually is inflaming the cornea. Protective gear should be used to contain the sparks from any shut-by individuals. During the course of the welding process harmful gases are produced. It is really vital that you must wear protective mask whenever working or as much as possible weld in well-ventilated places. TIG welding process is continuously developing ever since its introduction in the 1940's.
