When a long, successive weld is needed then seam welding is the way to go. Seam welding forms a weld progressively as it moves from one end to the other and the weld is created continuously.
Seam welding is often used on steel tubing, and is ideal for when a seamless weld is called for.
Why do we need Seam welders?
Seam welders create very strong and durable welds, which look even due to the seam welder moving at a regular pace. It’s usually automatic, which allows for that more even weld.
This even weld makes the finished weld look much cleaner, therefore increasing the overall appearance of the object. This is ideal for when the weld is going to be plainly visible.
Types of seam welder you would use, depending on your job, are longitudinal and circumferential and are used alongside either a MIG, TIG or plasma welding power source, depending on the welding process of choice.
Seam welders are used to manufacture cylindrical items such as exhausts, flues and vents.
