What is Welding?
What we see constructions workers do when they are wearing a mask and producing a spark through a device, is the process of welding.
The process in which one, two or more metal are joined at a point or whole, with the application of pressure and or heat is simply termed as Welding.
With advanced technology, the pipes are welded in companies through machines and not manually.
Types of Welding
Our topic of study: Electric Resistance Welding (ERW)
What is Electric Resistance Welding?
The process of welding where metals’ two surfaces in contact are bonded or merged by the applied pressure and produced heat with respect to time is Electric Resistance Welding.
Application of ER Welding in the production of pipes:
First, a plain metal sheet is produced. Further, it goes to form a cylindrical pipe. The in-between process uses ERW or Electric Resistance Welding where the metal sheet’s both the ends are joined with weld rolls or roll plates by application of pressure and by passing an electric current through.
Electric currents are produced by the electrode (of the procession machine) while the heat by the contact point and friction caused by a metal sheet, in resistance with each other.
The orange-yellow rings are nothing but electrode. It is holding the sheet turned into the pipe by rolls side by.
Electric: Electricity produced by electrodes in the process.
Resistance: A force that tends to oppose the motion. Here metal sheet and electrode are in resistance.
Welding: Joining of the metal sheet.
Types of methods used to manufacture welded pipes:
Why Electric Resistance Welded pipes in comparison to other types?
Application of Electric Resistance Welded pipes
Previously, ERW pipes were produced with unfinished welding that led leakages and accidents but Metamorphosis Engitech India Private Limited (MEIPL) manufactures defectless and flawless ERW pipes with guaranteed durability.
