Shielded metal arc welding (SMAW)
Also known as stick welding, shielded metal arc welding uses an electrode with flux around it, which protects the puddle. The electrode holder contains the electrode as it slowly melts away. Slag protects the weld puddle from atmospheric contamination.
Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW)
Gas tungsten arc welding, also known as TIG (tungsten inert gas), uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to produce the weld. The weld area is protected from atmospheric contamination by an inert shielding gas such as argon or helium.
Gas metal arc welding (GMAW)
Commonly referred to as MIG (metal inert gas), gas metal arc welding uses a wire-feeding gun that feeds the wire at an adjustable speed. It also flows an argon-based shielding gas or a mix of argon and carbon dioxide (CO2) over the weld puddle, protecting it from atmospheric contamination.
Flux-cored arc welding (FCAW)
Flux-cored arc welding is almost identical to MIG welding, except it uses a special, tubular wire that is filled with flux. This can be used with or without shielding gas, depending on the filler.
