Gas metal arc welding

Gas met arc welding is a process that can be both automatic and semi-automatic, when using MIG welding you feed a continuous wire electrode and a shielding gas through a welding gun. This process is also known as wire welding, this is due to the electrode material is usually spools of wire.

Gas Tungsten Arc Welding

Gas Tungsten arc welding is a process which uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to create a weld. This weld has a protective gas layer made to protect it from oxidation or other atmospheric contamination, this is called a shielding gas, this gas is mainly argon or helium. When helium is used it’s mainly known as heliarc welding.

Shielded Metal Arc Welding

Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) is indeed a manual arc welding method that creates a weld by using a consumable electrode that is coated with flux. The workpiece and electrode fuse together for this process, producing a pool of molten metal that cools to form a connection. When the weld is completed, the flux coating disintegrates, emitting vapours that act as a shielding gas and adding a layer of slag to the weld.

Flux Cored Arc Welding

Flux Cored Arc Welding is a process where an electric arc is used to weld a continuous metal electrode with a base material. The metal wire electrode is fed through the centre of the welding gun automatically using the same type of equipment that is used IN THE MIG processes. After the welding process the shielding gas protects the weld from oxidation.
