types of welding machines

Welding is a technique for joining metals or plastics. Welding is a method used, for example, in hydraulic repairs. Plumbing work with a welding machine is not too complicated. The welding machines differ from each other. Some are simpler, others are more advanced. There are PP, PE and PEX welders. 

Moc dobrego urządzenia nie może być niższa od 1000 W. Warto kupować zgrzewarkę o większej mocy, jednak minusem jest opłata za prąd. Dla amatorskiego zgrzewania wystarczy niższa moc. Ważne są matryce, tj. nasadki grzejne. Najczęściej stosowane średnice wynoszą od 16 do 40 mm.  

Types of pipe welding machines: 

  • doczołowe, 
  • elektrooporowe, 
  • warsztatowe, 
  • mufowe. 

It should be noted that plastic pipes are becoming increasingly popular in domestic installations. The welding machines enable the effective integration of elements. The pipes are usually connected using glue or the above-mentioned welding machine. The use of welding will give a lasting effect.  

Welding machines are divided according to the melting point: 

  • PEX (temperatura powyżej 130°C); 
  • PP (temperatura do 100°C); 
  • PE (temperatura 60°C). 

In addition to the welding machine, you should remember about the kit that will make all the work easier for the DIY enthusiast. What will you need? Screws, screwdrivers, cutters, electronic temperature controller, floor stand, measuring tape.
