Screenmakers possess in-house welding capabilities for use in the production and manufacture of displays and signage.
This includes :
- Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), also known as tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding - most commonly used to weld thin sections of stainless steel and light metals such as aluminum, magnesium, and copper alloys. The process grants greater control over the weld than competing procedures such as shielded metal arc welding and gas metal arc welding, allowing for stronger, higher quality welds. However, TIG is more complex and harder to master.
- Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding - is a semi-automatic or automatic arc welding process in which a continuous and consumable wire electrode and a shielding gas are fed through a welding gun. A constant voltage, direct current power source is most commonly used with MIG Welding.
