Tools, abrasives and welding supplies

We have a variety of tools that the welder requires to do his job, whether self-taught or profesional.

The essential tool of a welder is the welding machine, which is the main device they use to fuse materials. Also known as welding guns and welders, these machines provide the power and parts to generate heat that melts materials.

Each type of machine is suitable for a particular use, feature or material. MIG machines offer high welding speeds and ease of use for both thick and thin materials, TIG machines offer precision for thin materials and non-ferrous metals, and stick machines are good for thick metals in both indoor and outdoor areas.

All arc welding processes use electrodes, wires that produce the arc of electricity that generates heat to melt materials in a weld. Electrodes can be consumable or non-consumable. The difference is that the consumable electrodes fuse with the metals, becoming an integral part of the welding joint. These electrodes, necessary for certain types of welding, come in different sizes and materials.

Every welder must protect the face, skin and eyes from the heat emitted during the welding process. We have helmets that have a blackout function that automatically darkens the visor that covers the eyes, providing additional protection against ultraviolet and infrared light.

Gloves are another form of essential protective equipment for welders. Composed of multiple layers of durable fabrics and insulating material, these specialized gloves protect welders’ hands from sparks, flames and heat. When purchasing welding gloves, consider the different types available. The two main categories are MIG gloves and TIG gloves. The former are generally thicker and easier to dispose of in case of overheating, while the latter are thinner, allowing for higher precisiĆ³n movement.
