Welding Carbon Steel to Stainless Steel

In many ways, stainless steel may be determined metal, but it may be expensive to make stainless gross parts for heavy manufacturing.
The development of low-carbon non-core stainless steel parts will reduce the production cost of large-scale projects.
In the case of predetermined zones such as high temperatures and abrasive zones, engineerers can use only stainless steel and then map unspecified areas with mild Steel.
The relation between stainless steel and high carbon steel isn’t special, but water, fillers and joint manufacturing specifics have to be addressed in particular to weld together for a long-lasting contact between these metals.
It is necessary to work with experienced teams in preparation and design of the combination of piece of metals to ensure their precision.

Tools of Trade

To complete the project, many measuring tools are used. The design is essential for its squares, scales, strong lines, tamp measures, clamps and others.
The heavy plate on which a types of weld passages are necessary for producing the size of the solder to be used is a large part of production. For the venture, FCAW welding system is used.
Flow core arc welding (FCAW) is a semi automatic welding system which is quicker with a high deposition speed. Consequently, gas comes before Gas Metal Arc Welding (GTAW) in tungsten.
For large production applications, sluggish, controlled and non-automatic GTAW are not commonly used.

Different Types of Welding Processes:

  • TIG Welding.
  • Flux-Cored Arc Welding (FCAW)
  • Stick Welding (Shielded-Metal Arc Welding)
  • MIG Welding.

TIG Welding – Shielding Gas Options

In GTAW, also known as TIG welding, an inert gas protects the molten weld pool and tungsten from surrounding atmospheric gases. These atmospheric gases can react with the weld pool, causing contamination.
Although the primary purpose of a shielding gas is to shield the weld pool and tungsten from atmospheric gasses, the shielding gas also influences heat treatments and arc starting characteristics. *Due to the influence the shielding gas has on an arc, it is critical to adhere to any welding methods specification (WPS) that is issued.
In addition to general shielding of the arc and the weld pool, the shielding gas performs a number of important functions:

  • forms the arc plasma
  • stabilises the arc roots on the material surface
  • ensures smooth transfer of molten droplets from the wire to the weld pool

Thus, the shielding gas will have a substantial effect on the stability of the arc and metal transfer and the behaviour of the weld pool, in particular, its penetration. General purpose shielding gases for MIG welding are mixtures of argon, oxygen and carbon dioxide2, and special gas mixtures may contain helium. The gases which are normally used for the various materials are:


  • CO2
  • argon +2 to 5% oxygen
  • argon +5 to 25% CO2

MIG Welding

Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding is a gas metal arc welding (GMAW) process using a continuous solid wire electrode heated from a welding gun and fed to the weld pool. The two base materials are melted together, resulting in their bonding. The welding gun also supplies an inert protective gas near the wire electrode, which helps to protect the process from contaminants in the air.

Flux Corred Arc Welding

Flux core arc welding (FCAW) is an automatic or semi-automatic electric arc welding process. In practice, both are very similar to MIG welding, which uses the filler wire feed as an electrode for the arc. Some of the same equipment can be used for both MIG and flux core welding.

Stick (Shielded-Metal Arc Welding)

Shielded metal arc welding is a process in which a coated wire is melted to fill the gaps between the parts. The molten coating comes to the surface to protect it from the atmosphere. Shielded metal arc welding is also called bar welding and uses the simplest equipment of any arc welding process.

Selling the Tempereture

Another part of a project includes different base metals: austenitic stainless steel to mild steel A36. Joint planning, preheating and peak interpass temperatures, are important along with root openings. 
Stainless heat input must be monitored closely. Heat should be checkable and time should be as short as feasible in the sensitization temperature field. High heat can decrease the corrosion resistance welding in the water-affected areas. For this task, thorough planning and caution to detail are important.

Dissimilar type of metals are also require various filler metals for soldering. The admixture in the weld stainless steel deposit of mild steel is therefore not an unsatisfactory alloy. Stainless electrodes with higher alloy content are used.

Finishing Touches

Once the product is welded, it is manually washed and shipped for blasting. It goes to paint for an external finish after it is blast.   When the plan is completed, the consumer review will be carried out fully.
