According to research manufacturing accounts for two out of three welding jobs and More than 50% of products made in the U.S. require welding. Clearly as evidence shows welding is a major part of all sorts of manufacturing. It takes experience and skills in order to properly weld on hinges and other forms of metallic materials. Though you may have the necessary skills and experience to weld on hinges for pipes, mistakes happen especially for those who are beginners. Good thing that there are several tools created to make sure that these mistakes happen on a rare occasion.
As estimated by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the welding industry is expected to grow at a rate of 15?22%. Before you can get started on a new career or hobby in welding be sure to these important welding tools handy.
Dark welding helmetWelding is a very dangerous job. Even if you?re using non sparking tools it best to have a dark welding helmet on at all times during the process. Regardless of how small the job, whether you welding pipes or just installing weld on hinges in to another metallic material having the helmet on will keep you safe and projecting from any unforeseen dangers. It must have a pretty decent shade that will not hurt your eyes due to the brightness of the sparks.
Welding gloves This is an obvious necessity for weld on hinges, welding pipes, or welding in general. It?s a required means of safety and support before any job. The gloves like the helmet will protect your skin from fire damage and other unforeseen dangers during the welding process.
Beryllium copper toolsBeryllium copper is the hardest and strongest of any copper alloy, with a tensile strength of 1280 – 1480 MPa. Beryllium copper is also one of the strongest non magnetic tools and non sparking tools available. It has the right qualities for excellent metalworking, forming and machining as well as a good material to use for weld on hinges.
Vertical plate lifting clamps. This is a tool that proves helpful in making the welding process a little more easier if you need to weld under an object of even of the side of it. To weld on hinges on oats that are oddly shaped, the use of these clamps can make it a less strenuous process with the ability to lift it to a more comforting height and get all the angles.
Pipe alignment clampThis is another great tool to use when you are ready to weld on hinges in to pipes. Its heavy duty design allows for better alignment of the pipes that are very thin or too thick. This tool also saves you a lot of time and trouble during the welding process. Nothing is worse than welding a pipe only to realize that it is not properly aligned.
Purge monitor.A purging monitor is usually necessary when welding two separate parts together. Its perfect for when you?re preparing to weld on hinges as well as pipes. The monitor allows you to be able to detect and monitor whether there are any forms of gases or vapours that might cause harm to the welding joint while it’s being welded or even right after it has been welded on.
