Stick welders, or formally known as Shielded Metal Arc Welding, is one of the most widely used arc welding processes in the industry. If you learnt to weld some years ago, it's likely you learnt stick welding. Compared to other types of welding processes, stick welders are more versatile in that it's more forgiving in weather conditions such as wind. The relative portability of a stick welder also makes it ideal for on-site welding or when access is limited.
We are proud to work with the leading names in the industry and are stockist and suppliers of new MIG welders of different specifications. MIG welding is an ideal introduction to the discipline of welding because it's the easiest to learn in all methods. The official name for MIG welding is Gas Metal Arc Welding, due to the fact that it uses a shielding gas to protect the arc- the current between the base metal and the wire which melts the wire and joins it to the workpiece.
Although difficult to learn, TIG welding is herald as the most sought after welding method because of it's overwhelming advantages. The lack of spatter and fumes gives the welder a clear view of the work in progress and the degree of heat can be precisely controlled with a pedal. It can be used to weld almost any kind of ferrous and non-ferrous metal including brass and titanium. A filler rod can be used to reinforce the strength or improve the aesthetics of the finished weld.

Plasma cutting is the process of using an ionised, conductive stream of plasma to cut metals with precision. This process can be used to cut all types of metals by either handheld or precision CNC operation. Using plasma to cut metal produces a clean result, if paired with a CNC set up, it can be extremely flexible and produce complex, artistic shapes. Plasma cutting is also more cost effective when compared with other methods such as laser or water-jet, also providing a faster cutting speed.

Stick Welders For Sale
They are highly popular in home welding because they are relatively inexpensive. They are suitable to work on most common metals and alloys such as cast iron and stainless steel of a variety of depths and thicknesses. Stick welding has been known to require more skill and practice to master, common obstacles include not maintaining the electric arc, or not creating a smooth weld along the joints. We carry several stick welder kits and the related consumables such as different grades and types of electrodes.
New MIG Welders
MIG welders are suitable for the keen hobbyist due to its ease of use. Better control can be achieved on thinner metals which makes it an ideal choice for projects such as car restoration. The choice of wire and the shielding gas depends on the type and thickness of the base metal. The spool-fed wire means a higher welding speed, as well as a cleaner weld is achievable. Some of our MIG welders are also equipped to carry out Flux-cored welding which eliminates the need for a separate shielding gas, reducing the cost and increasing the versatility of the welder.
TIG Welding Machines
TIG welding is a technique suited for people who already have a relative amount of welding experience. Due to the coordination requirements of the process, they can take time and practice but once mastered, produces a clean and beautiful result. Gas Tungsten Arc Welding as it's technically referred to, uses a non-consumable pure or alloyed tungsten electrode to melt and join 2 metal components.
