Arc/Resistance Welding Process
Flux Core Arc Welding (FCAW): This process uses similar equipment as GMAW but in place of standard solid wire uses wire consisting of a steel electrode surrounding a powder fill material.
Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW): Also known as metal inert gas or MIG welding.
Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW ): Also known as Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding. This process uses a nonconsumable tungsten electrode, an inert gas, and a separate filler material. This process is sometimes mistakenly referred to as Heliarc welding.
Metal Inert Gas (MIG) welding, also referred to as Gas Metal Arc Welding.
Plasma: Plasma arc welding uses a tungsten electrode combined with plasma gas to make the arc.
Spot: Spot welding is a form of resistance welding used to join overlapping metal sheets. Two electrodes are used to clamp the sheets together and pass the current between them.
Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) welding. Also referred to as Gas Tungsten Arc Welding.
