Welding is the process of merging various types of metal together using various types of weld materials. Welding has become an integral part of many manufacturing and repair companies. The industry has evolved into a powerful vocation that involves not only repairing things in a shop but mobilizing the business to go out and repair things on site. Companies used to have to tear down fences or parts and bring them to the shop to get it repaired, then return to the site to reinstall it but that is no longer necessary. Some things can’t easily or cost effectively be removed so hiring a portable welder professional is a god send.
Thanks to the portable welder covering a large variety of welder machines, there is no longer a need to ship your repair jobs or for the average person to have to drive their car to the shop illegally to get things like the muffler welded (cracks etc…). Portable welders also give the welder the advantage because they can be moved easily into even tight spaces to perform the weld. You can’t do that with a big machine that weighs several hundred pounds or more!
In this article we'll cover several types of portable welders available and what types of jobs they are best for to help you figure out which type you may need. We'll cover types, models, price, and more.
