Popular Types of Arc Welding

Welding is a process of joining or bonding similar materials (e.g., metals, glass, and plastics) together using fusion. Fusion, on the other hand, is achieved by melting the base materials to be joined. Moreover, a filler material is typically added to the molten materials (weld pools) during the welding process, and these weld pools cool …

Shielded Metal Arc Welding

Shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) is arguably the most popular type of arc welding process that is presently utilized. SMAW is known by many other names such as manual metal arc welding (MMA or MMAW), or flux shielded arc welding (FSAW). Moreover, SMAW is more commonly known as “stick” welding due to its use of …

Welding Rod Chart & Classification

Welding is the process of fusing two pieces of metals (also called workpiece) together. This is accomplished by passing electric current from the welding electrode to the workpiece that creates an electric arc. The electric arc heats and melts the two metals together, which in turn, fuses the two metals together resulting in a stronger …
