Welding equipment and soldering tools are used to create a joint on a workpiece. They include soldering irons, stick welders, TIG welders, MIG welders, and gas welders as well as the torches, electrodes, filler metals, solder, and other welding supplies that are used with them. Plasma-cutting and arc-cutting equipment cut or gouge materials. Welding helmets, gloves, blankets, and other safety equipment are designed to withstand hazardous glare, sparks, spatter, and heat generated during welding to prevent injury to workers and avoid damage to equipment and surfaces. Welding tables and accessories support the workpiece to improve efficiency and accuracy during welding tasks.
