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
