Taxonomy: Electric Arc Welding


Electric arc welding is a set of techniques for joining metal pieces together using the heat of an electrical arc.


Overview of Process

Electric arc welding is a set of processes which involve welding (joining two pieces of metal together with high heat) using the heat generated by an electrical arc between an electrode and the workpiece.


Additional Notes

This is a classification process, not a end-node process. Specifying the detailed end-node process required will produce a better RfD search result.
