Mild steel welding is one of the most common welding applications.  It is easily used for small projects, including metal artwork. It is easy to find, purchase, shape, and weld.


Steel is made by mixing metal with carbon.  The more carbon that is mixed with the steel, the harder the steel becomes.


Mild steel is considered a ferrous metal, meaning it is iron with a very small amount of carbon that is mixed with it.  This results in mild steel not being hard high-carbon steel.  


One of the advantages of working with mild steel, especially when performing mild steel welding, is the ability for it to bend without breaking.  Because it is not high-carbon steel, mild steel is more easily shaped and welded for various projects. 


At Gap View Machine, we use MIG welding for our mild steel welding.  We also take great care to make sure all the aluminum is clean before beginning any welding.  


Because of the heat required for mild steel welding, any oxides or particles that are present during welding can become part of the weld.  This results in a loss of overall strength in the weld, and can also negatively affect the appearance.
