ARC Welding

Arc Welding is sometimes also known as Manual Metal Arc Welding. This type of welding was first developed in the early part of the 20th century so has been around for many, many years. Arc welders are usually used for such things as hobbies, workshop, site repairs and maintenance, agricultural repairs and manufacturing, engineering and fabrication so is a very popular form of welding. What is ARC welding? Arc welding is the process of fusing two or more pieces of metal together using a power source to create an electric ARC between the electrode and the material you are welding. When the material has been joined together this is called the molten pool, if you think of the electrode like a “glue” this is what is ‘melted’ and sticks the materials together. With ARC welding you use an electrode welding rod which is a metal rod coated with flux which […]

Why Choose Makita Cordless Machines?

Rechargeable lithium ion (li-ion) batteries are now widely used for everything from portable electronics to electric vehicles, power tools and garden machinery. Battery technology has advanced significantly over the past two decades with lithium ion replacing the previous generation of nickel–cadmium (NiCad) and nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries. One of the key advantages of the li-ion technology is that the batteries are more ‘energy dense’ which allows greater power and capacities from a smaller pack. This technology has been developed over many years by Makita to perfect their cordless power tool and garden machinery range. Offering many benefits to the user, these batteries make machines much lighter and easier to use – lithium-ion is around 40% lighter than NiCad batteries making machine more comfortable with improved handling and reduced user fatigue during use. The advantage these machines have over their petrol counterpart is they take away the need to store […]
