Welding with Portable Welders
Our portable welder uses small and light welding machines. The large mobile unit is not practical or do not provide sufficient control in some specific conditions. Additionally, we use our portable welders when we can not access the welding spot even with 600 ft cables or when the long leads are disallowed due to safety reason.
The safety hazard of exhaust gases inside the large warehouses or production facilities also prohibits the use of our mobile welder units, and than we use portable welding machines.
Our welders also use these portable welding machines when the project demands precision welding and machine responsiveness. We use also these machines when we weld under multiple welding parameters.
These small portable welding machines can be connected to the client’s electrical outlets or can be self-propelled. The power supply to our portable machines impacts welding technology used, safety of your employees, and our efficiency
Portable welding machines connected to client's electrical outlets
Our portable welders are small and relatively light. They can be quickly setup in your warehouse, kitchen or production facility. These portable welders utilize 110 V and or 220 V. We do have most popular plugs and we should be able to connect to power in your facility without any problem. However, sending pictures of receptacles relatively closed to the welding spot is a good idea since from time to time we find old receptacles that we do not have a plug for.
Most of our portable welders are setup to do a one welding technique and are modified with many attachments. These machines are highly specialized and therefore we pay a great attention not to damage them. We do not allow visitors or bystanders touching them, moving them, or operating them.
Self-propelled and portable welding machines
The self-propelled, and portable welding machines are very useful for welding on top floors of apartment buildings under construction, and in large and tall warehouses. In these conditions only 120 V with 15A power is available. We use them for welding on top of large size vessels popular in chemical industries. In areas not accessible by our trailers and with no electricity, our self-propelled portable welding machines are an asset.
GTAW portable welders to repair welding defects, undercut weld and porosity
GTAW portable welders are the best to repair welding defects such as undercut weld and porosity. They do not work very well for correcting pinholes. The stick welder works magic for repairing pinholes.
We operate portable welders for Tig welding stainless and aluminum. Our air cooled tig guns are excellent for short and small welding jobs. However, for welding cast aluminum we use water cooled tig guns since they provide better working temperature efficiency. The precision of GTAW is also very useful for repairing welding defects left by the robot or a welding machine operator. We can correct variety of welding defects such as undercut weld and porosity.
Mig (GMAW) Portable Welders - Mig welding stainless steel
We also operate portable welders for Mig welding stainless steel and aluminum. The portable welder for Mig welding stainless steel is rather a light machine and is very useful in welding in the restaurants. This highly modified mig welding machine has been recently added to our services. The portable welder for Mig welding aluminum is a rather larger machine with a 25’ spool gun. Therefore we use only on larger and longer lasting jobs.
Stick portable welder
Our stick portable welder is a very small, portable welding machine that has helped many clients in in most difficult situations. This machine can be plugged to 110V 15A and by using a very thin rods we can accomplish welds in places where there is no access to 220V and our mobile units can not be used. This machine however can not provide stick aluminum welding since the aluminum rods of smaller sizes are not rigid enough for comfortable welding.
Extension cords to our portable welders
We have about 60’ of a very large size extension cord to our portable welders and about 8 most popular plugs. These heavy extension cords allow our machines to operate smoothly when we operate them within their capabilities. These extension cords could form a tripping hazard even when we try to hide them as much as we can. So, please pay attention when walking in our proximity.
Safety of your employees
Our portable welders and associated portable welding equipment arrive to the jobsite in plastic containers for easy moving using dollies. We bring on site very interesting equipment and tools that aide in our welding. Having this in mind, we understand your employees curiosity trying to look up some of our tools but we disallow any touching of our portable welders. Same applies to our other welding equipment, our welding consumables, and everything what is in our containers. We would really appreciate leaving us alone without any disturbance during our welding for the best welding results. Our welders are focused on safety of your employees too and we recommended that they do not stay in the same room where we weld.
