Flux-Cored Arc Welding Advantages

Flux cored arc welding has several advantages over other commonly used welding processes such as SMAW, GMAW, and GTAW. This article discusses a few of those advantages. At the end, a few disadvantages of this process have also been discussed. The main advantage of flux-cored arc welding process over GTAW and SMAW is its’ higher deposition rate. … Read more

Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW)

Flux-cored arc welding or tubular electrode welding is a variation of GMAW welding. It has some advantages over MIG welding such as improved arc action, improved weld metal properties, and a better weld appearance in general. In this process, the electrode is tubular in construction. The electrode is ‘cored’ with flux, hence the name flux-cored. FCAW, … Read more

Flux-Cored Arc Welding Equipment

Flux-cored arc welding or tubular electrode welding has evolved from the MIG welding process to improve arc action, metal transfer, weld metal properties, and weld appearance. It is an arc welding process in which the heat for welding is provided by an arc between a continuously fed tubular electrode wire and the workpiece. Shielding is obtained … Read more
