Welding magnesium correctly
Greetings from Schweißfan,Unfortunately, welding magnesium didn’t work for us for a long time. Unfortunately, when I started looking into magnesium welding, I didn’t find much information on the subject. And certainly not which filler material I should use or where I can get it from.
Welding magnesium correctly is possible!
This is precisely one of the most important issues in magnesium welding: which filler material do I use and where can I buy it, or rather in small quantities and not in five or ten kilos. This was exactly the problem I was facing at the time, and then it took some time before I was finally able to do the whole thing.
Yes, now I can definitely tell you that it is similar to welding cast aluminum. Of course, cleanliness is important before heating and I have already said several times that it must be the right filler material, but if you look closely you can also see that the weld pool looks different and also behaves differently when feeding. A striking feature of magnesium welding is that it lights up green. You can actually recognize very quickly that it is magnesium when welding.
As you can see, we can help you with magnesium welding. Just get in touch with us. However, if you want to weld the whole thing yourself, no problem, we will also be happy to supply you with our filler material, which you can get from us as you need it, i.e. by the bar and not by the kilogram.
So I hope I was able to help you with the article on welding magnesium correctly. I would be delighted to receive your feedback. And if you want to find out and see more about welding, then take a look at our channels. Welding is a daily topic there.
