SMAW, Stick Welding
Shielded metal arc welding (SMAW); it is also known as manual metal arc welding (MMA) or stick welding. The process is generally limited to welding ferrous materials, though special electrodes have made possible the welding of cast iron, nickel, aluminum, copper, and other metals. This is a good selection for outdoor or dirty environments.
GMAW, Mig welding
Gas metal arc welding (GMAW), also known as metal inert gas or MIG welding. Where the use of a wire feeder is incorporated. This type of welding uses an inert gas to shield the weld from contaminants. This is generally a clean process and is ideal for a variety of metals and thicknesses.
FCAW, Flux core welding
Flux-cored arc welding (FCAW) is the combination of the two above methods. We use a wire feeder but no shielding gas (except with Dual Shield wire). This provides fast weld speeds over a variety of metals, thicknesses and environments.
GTAW, Tig Welding
Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), or tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding. GTAW can be used on nearly all weldable metals, though it is most often applied to stainless steel and light metals. It is often used when quality welds are extremely important. Excellent for Aluminum and Stainless Steel.
