What Type of Welding is Used on Cars?

A lot of clients reach out to us wondering exactly what type of welding process is used to treat vehicles. After all, you’ll want to make sure that your vehicle is being looked after in the best possible manner. The two most common welding methods that are used for vehicles include resistance metal inert gas (MIG) welding, tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding, and plasma arc welding (PAW). At Trickett Welding, we take advantage of all three of these welding types to ensure that clients get the best possible results.

Generally, MIG welding is considered to be the fastest and most effective method of welding for autobody work. The method involves the use of a shielding gas and filler material in a wire that is fed directly through the welder. As well as being a quick method of welding, MIG is also a much easier type of welding for people to learn, which is why our staff are able to use the technique professionally. Of course, the type of welding approach that we choose will depend on the work that needs to be done.

We make all of our clients fully aware of our welding options so that they end up with one that is suitable for their vehicle.

How Long Does Welding Take on a Car?

We understand that our clients will want to have their vehicles back on the road as quickly as possible, so it’s understandable that you’d want to know how long welding takes. Unfortunately, there is no set time in which all welding work can be completed, at least if it’s to be done correctly. One of the main factors that determine how long welding work will take is the type of welding that’s being completed. Our staff will tell you what welding approach we’re taking so that you have an idea of how much time we need.

Another major factor that significantly affects how long welding work will take is the extent of the damage done to the vehicle. The average time that it takes to complete welding repairs on a vehicle that has sustained minor damage is 1-2 hours. However, if your car has taken on more significant damage, it will take us much longer to have it repaired correctly. Ultimately, it’s our goal to restore your vehicle to the best possible condition, no matter how long the job takes.

Our staff will always be happy to provide you with a time estimate for our work after the initial consultation.
