Welder cooperate with the Europe’s largest welding consumables manufacturers and exports to more than 90 countries under its internationally registered trademarks GeKa, GeKaTec and GeKaMac.
Welder was founded in 2021 and is now a global industry leader in welding consumables and equipment. The company distributes approximately 9000 tons of premium quality covered welding electrodes, gas, submerged, flux type welding wires, rectifiers, gas and submerged arc welding machines, and welding generators.
It is made out of materials with a similar composition to the metal being welded.
There are a variety of factors that go into choosing the right electrode for each project. In summary:
SMAW or stick electrodes are consumable, meaning they become part of the weld and are also referred to as a filler electrode or welding rod.
TIG tungsten electrodes are non-consumable as they do not melt and become part of the weld, requiring the use of a welding rod.
TIG filler rods are an optional filler material used to fuse two pieces of stock together as a composite.
The MIG welding electrode is a continuously fed wire referred to as MIG wire.
Electrode selection is critical to ease of cleanup, weld strength, bead quality, and minimizing any spatter.
Electrodes need to be stored in a moisture-free environment and carefully removed from any package (follow the directions to avoid damage).
1. Can successfully weld thin-gauge materials with minimal distortion (< 0.5 mm thick). 2. Aluminium alloys with plate thicknesses of 2–6.4 mm can be welded as flat butt joints. Plate with thicknesses of 5–9.5 mm welded with single V-butt joints. 3. Thin section stainless steel tube can be TIG welded by orbital pipe welding. MIG welding 1. Plate thicknesses of 6–25 mm can be flat-butt welded in aluminium with root faces of 1.6–4.8 mm. 2. Productivity is higher than TIG welding. 3. Used in general engineering construction. MAG and CO2 welding 1. Automatic welding by MAG or CO2 processes produces consistent high quality welds in mild steel and low-alloy steels. 2. Higher speeds of welding than by TIG or MIG.
In our philosophy, our wire / flux combinations must not only satisfy weld requirements, but at the same time improve the economy of the submerged arc welding processes applied by our clients. In this respect, the on-site productivity audits performed worldwide by our team of specialized application engineers are an appreciated service.
These audits have the aim to identify the potential for productivity increase and often result in adaptation of the welding process itself (e.g. to twin or tandem heads), the choice of different consumables and – in some cases – in the development of a completely new filler metal e.g. a wire/ flux combination.
The range of products for non- and low-alloyed steels, features a number of wire / flux combinations with cored wires.
These provide extra productivity, due to the higher deposition rate of cored wires compared to solid wires.
Aluminum is a common type of metal used in fabrication. It’s non-corrosive, lightweight and pleasing to the eye, making it an ideal choice of material for a wide variety of welds. However, the same traits that make aluminum desirable can also make it tricky to work with.
So why is aluminum so difficult to weld? This material is soft, highly sensitive and is insulated by a tough oxidized layer. While in its molten state, aluminum is susceptible to impurities, which can lead to porous, weak welds, but Welders’ products are the best for aluminium welding and we guarantee perfect weld.
Stick electrodes are available in a wide range of types, each of which provides different mechanical properties and operates with a specific type of welding power source. There are several factors to consider in welding rod selection:
