How Docol Tube R8 is Made

Zach Guzman

Docol Tube R8 and other Advanced High Strength Steels are complex, sophisticated materials, with carefully selected chemical compositions and multiphase microstructures resulting from precisely controlled heating and cooling processes.

TIG Welding Defects

Zach Guzman

In a previous post, we discussed that TIG welding allows the operator greater control over MIG welding. This greater control is not to imply that TIG is the superior welding method, as both methods offer similar ultimate tensile strengths as the orig...

MIG Welding Transfer Methods

Zach Guzman

In MIG welding, there are four different basic modes to transfer weld metal (filler material) across the arc to the base material. These transfer modes are Short Circuit, Globular, Spray Arc and Pulsed MIG.

MIG Welding Defects

Zach Guzman

Typical weld defects found in MIG welding are lack of fusion, burn through, crater/ crater cracks, undercut and porosity in the weld metal.

MIG Welding vs. TIG Welding

Zach Guzman

MIG and TIG welding are two of the most common methods of arc welding in which uses metal electrodes and an inert gas to shield the weld area from contamination.
