  1. Welding heat treatable steels - The FABRICATOR

    Mar 14, 2011 · Our shop won a contract that requires welding 4130 steel. I've been told this is a heat-treatable steel. Can you tell me which different welding procedures have to be used to weld this material? The most commonly welded heat-treatable steels are 4130, 4340, and 8630. However, any steel prefaced with ...

Is it OK to weld mild steel gussets to chromoly frame? ... 4130 and mild steel can be welded. I do not own a GMAW machine, so always use GTAW, using 70s2. I'm sure you can use a MIG using the ...

  3. How to Prepare for Welding 4140 Steel | Career Trend

    How to Prepare for Welding 4140 Steel. You typically weld 4140 steel with the direct current electrode negative, or DCEN, setting. Preheat 4140 steel. You generally need to preheat steel with a carbon content greater than 0.30 percent. Heat 4140 steel to 700 degrees Fahrenheit before you weld it.

  4. Welding mild steel to chromoly? - Miller Welding ...

    Actually I think the chromoly will crack before the mild steel. The moly is stronger but at the welded joint without pre and post heat can be verry brittle after welding. About 1/4" away from the weld will be the weakest spot. (assuming your using 1 1/2 tubing) Im sure theres alot of people on here that know much more about this than I do.

  5. Welding 4130N to Mild steel? - American Welding Society

    May 09, 2005 · 4130, being an HTLA steel product form, has high hardenability and is susceptible to hydrogen cracking in the weld metal and HAZ. Low-hydrogen welding procedures must be used with sufficient preheat and interpass temperatures to prevent hydrogen cracking. This is …

  6. Potential issues welding 4130 steel to 4140? : Welding

    All steel works like this- the first two numbers are the type, and the second is the carbon content percentage. You're using the exact same steel, 41xx, with .4% carbon instead of .3%. You're using the exact same steel, 41xx, with .4% carbon instead of .3%.

  7. Welding SAE 4130 Steel Tubing | Lincoln Electric

    What consumable can be used to weld on SAE 4130 steel tubing? On light chrome-moly tubing, mild steel electrodes are commonly used. There is enough pickup of alloy from the base material to give the required tensile strength in the as-welded condition.

  8. MIG Welding 4130 to Mild Steel???? - Weld Talk Message …

    know you cannot weld 4130 to mild steel. The main reason is that when you mig 4130 it superheats it and cools too fast and you get micro cracks that will get detected in the inspection process. Plus of course if you do have an unfortunate accident it will shear the chome …

  9. TIG Welding Chrome-Moly Tubing | Lincoln Electric

    Q. Can I weld 4130 using any other filler metals? A. Some fabricators prefer to use austenitic stainless steel fillers to weld 4130 tubing. This is acceptable provided 310 or 312 stainless steel fillers are used. Other stainless steel fillers can cause cracking. Stainless filler material is typically more expensive. Q.

  10. Mig welding 4130 tubing - Welding Tips and Tricks

    4130 Material by: Anonymous We weld 4130 material all the time in our shop, we preheat it to about 500 deg, then tig weld and stick to finish, then put in a hot box to cool down at a controlled rate. We are welding lubricators for wellheads, that have flanges on them. The welds are full penetration.

  11. Tig Welding Chromoly – Tips for Welding 4130 Tubing

    May 16, 2012 · Don’t weld where there is a breeze or draft that could speed up cooling of the weld… and never speed cool welds. Use a machine with high freq start capability to avoid those arc strikes. Use er70s-2 rod, not 4130 rod. It’s common practice in aviation to use a filler metal that is slightly undermatched to the parent metal. Taper amperage very slowly at the end of a weld to avoid crater …

  12. Differences in welding chromoly tubing with mig vs. tig

    Jul 24, 2008 · I have read that you do NOT want to weld chromoly tubing with a mig and I have read others say it is fine. I just read the NHRA rules on Roll cages and they make you use Tig ONLY on chromoly but let you use tig OR mig on mild steel. My question is is there that big of a difference in welding chromoly with tig vs mig as far as strength. When welding with tig do you actually use …

  13. Can I stick weld 4130? - Weld Talk Message Boards

    Oct 13, 2004 · Gas welding allows greater heat input, taking the stress out of the weld. Stick welding has what I call a chill factor, that really needs to be stress relieved after welding. TIG will give you a nicer more controllable weld. In the old days 4130 chromolly was always gas welded. TIG will give you a greater heat input than stick or MIG.
