A Few Things to Know About Structural Welding

December 20, 2017

Metal is everywhere in our industrialized world. It is an incredibly useful material that has become the backbone of our buildings, machines, and industries. As a result of this, the process of structural welding – joining metals or similar materials by fusing them together in high-temperature environments – is a crucial skill today, as it enables us to build great structures from metal that appear throughout the industrial world today.


There are a wide variety of metals that can be welded for structural, construction, reinforcement or repair projects. These include stainless steel, mild steel, nickel, copper, titanium, and aluminum. Determining which metal to use depends on the full scope of the project. Each metal has its own strengths and potential weaknesses, and see frequent use in the manufacturing industry in the GTA.    


In Canada, welders are required to pass testing at the Canadian Welding Bureau. CWB certification ensures that professionals comply to safety codes and standards. As an authorized body for International Institute of Welding (IIW), this process provides different levels of internationally-recognized qualifications. CWB-certified welders offer quality services, which is why they are mandatory for the welders who are working at Weld Rich and Steel.
