Skillfully Welding Your Car

To repair auto body and frame damage, auto welding is used as well as plasma arc cutting.  This process of fusing one material with another through the application of energy, such as heat.  When a skilled technician does it correctly, it produces a strong and high quality weld.

There are several types of auto welding techniques.  Below we explain a few of the methods our leading tech might use to repair your vehicle’s collision damage.

Electric Arc Welding – Spot Welding

The technique in which a hot arc is formed between the base metal and the filler wire is called arc welding or spot welding.  The arc melts the base metal and the filler wire, creating the weld.

Brazing

The process in which a brass filler rod is used to join metal together is called Brazing.

Soldering

Solder is used primarily as a filler.  Soldering is a slow, difficult process, which requires a great deal of skill.
