Welding repair is the process of repairing a cracked or broken weld. This can be done by either rewedding the existing weld, or by welding a new weld on top of the old weld.
Repair welding is often used to fix defects in welds that have already been created, but it can also be used to create welds in areas that would otherwise be too difficult to weld.
There are several reasons why you might need to repair a weld. The most common reason is that the weld has cracked or broken. This can occur for a variety of reasons, such as improper welding technique, poor metal quality, or incorrect welding settings.
Other reasons why you might need to repair a weld include:
If you are having problems with your welds, then repair welding may be the solution you are looking for!
Repairing cracked welds at stress points immediately after they occur will keep your trailer safe, prolong its life and protect your investment.
Remove the entire cracked weld using an angle grinder. Drill stress-relieving holes at both ends of a crack before welding if it leads to the frame.
Then, using a stainless-steel wire brush, scrub the region to be welded. To prevent weld contamination, only use this brush for aluminum usage. The surface should be bright and gleaming, indicating that all the dull oxide layer has been removed.
Weld in a well-ventilated area free from flammable materials and remember to wear proper skin and eye protection.
Begin welding at the crack’s drilled end, which has the most restraint, and proceed forward.
Finally, use the wire brush to polish or blend-grind the weld for a smooth finish. A great weld bead will resemble a row of stacked dimes. The discoloration at the edges indicates good penetration and a substantial weld.
