Although when welding is mentioned, only the joining of parts comes to mind, there are actually different types of welding. It is possible to list these types basically as follows:

  • Stick Electrode Art Welding
  • Arc Welding with Flux-Cored Wire
  • Gas Welding
  • TIG Welding
  • Electric Resistance Welding
  • Oxy-Acetylene Welding

Stick Electrode Arc Welding

Covered electrode arc welding, which is among the manual welding types, is a method that can be applied both in open and closed areas. The joining process is achieved with the help of an arc created by high heat at the junction points of the materials to be joined. Electrodes are used for this arc forming process. Due to its simplicity of application and high durability, it stands out as the most frequently used type of welding in joining metals.

Arc Welding with Flux-Cored Wire

There is a great similarity between this method and coated electric arc welding in terms of application. In the flux-cored wire arc welding method, electrodes are used for the welding process. The welding process is completed with an arc created from the junction points of two metal parts. The wires inside the electrode decompose due to heat and gases are released. These resulting gases are protected at the junction, thus ensuring the durability of the weld.
