Taxonomy: Carbon Arc Welding

Description

Carbon arc welding is a form of welding (joining two metallic workpieces together by melting) that uses a carbon arc torch.

 

Overview of Process

Carbon arc welding is a process that welds two metal workpieces together using a carbon arc torch. Welding creates a joint between two metallic workpieces by melting the adjoining borders, and as the metal cools, it forms a joint. A carbon arc torch works by creating a spark between a carbon electrode and the metal.
