Types of Welding

Processes, Joints, Positions

gas metal arc welding

Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) - MIG

Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) commonly known as Metal Inert Gas (MIG) process. It forms an electric arc for working.

gas tungsten arc welding

Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) - TIG

Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) also known as Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding. It uses non-consumable tungsten electrodes.

flux cored arc welding

Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW)

Flux-cored Arc Welding (FCAW) also known as FCA. It is a semi-automatic or automatic arc welding process.

shielded metal arc welding

Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) - Stick

Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) also known as Stick welding. It uses a metallic consumable electrode for laying welds.

Metal Cored Arc Welding

Metal Core Arc Welding (MCAW)

Metal Core Arc Welding (MCAW) is a variant of the MIG welding process. It uses a DC electric arc generated heat to fuse the metals.

plasma arc welding

Plasma Arc Welding (PAW)

Plasma Arc Welding (PAW) is also an arc welding similar to TIG welding. It uses an electrode for laying welds.

atomic hydrogen welding

Atomic Hydrogen Welding (AHW)

Atomic hydrogen welding (AHW) is also an arc welding process. It uses an arc between two tungsten electrodes for welds.

Electron Beam Welding (EBW)

Electron Beam Welding (EBW) is a fusion welding process. It uses a high-velocity electrons beam to lay welds.
