The top 5 industries that use welding and welding supplies

It’s true – welding makes the world go ‘round! And here at Dynaweld, we’re all about welding.

There are a huge range of industries that use welding as a key factor in their work processes. We take a look at the top 5 industries that use welding and welding supplies.

1. General Construction

1. General Construction

MIG welding with steel is a major cornerstone of the construction industry. A huge percentage of globally produced steel is used in the construction of both commercial and residential buildings, as well as lots of other big structures… that’s a big demand for welders and global welding supplies!

MIG welding processes using solid wire and flux-cored wire are also widely used in construction, as is submerged arc welding for larger heavier structures.

Automotive welding is huge – from the manufacture of cars to smash repairs and beyond.
Both traditional MIG welding processes and resistance welding are most commonly used to assemble and repair cars, motorbikes and other vehicles as they provide a strong weld that lasts for many years… even for the thinnest of materials.

DID YOU KNOW? An average car uses approximately 5,000 welds. That’s pretty amazing!

3. Aerospace

3. Aerospace

Aircraft welding is another big one. The aerospace industry utilises a wide range of applications, including MIG welding processes, SMAW welding, TIG welding, orbital welding and plasma processes.

TIG and plasma processes are most frequently used with aircraft repairs, while engineers now use MIG welding processes for manufacturing aircraft, and plasma arc welding and electric resistance welding for joining sheeting and other precision work.

4. Shipping + Rail

4. Shipping + Rail

From building train tracks and train cars to the mammoth construction of cruise liners, tankers and general ship welding, these two industries are definitely all about welding.

Maintenance welding is also key in these industries because it’s both fast and economically sound.

5. Maintenance + other manufacture

5. Maintenance + other manufacture

Maintenance welding is used within commercial buildings, especially if the welder has other skills – whether that be in plumbing or electrical. Welding can fix machinery, tools, pipes, appliances and lots more.

DID YOU KNOW? Welding is also used in the mass production of computer components such as motherboards, as well as furniture, and large-scale tools.
