Taxonomy: Shielded Metal Arc Welding
Shielded metal arc welding is a process for joining metallic workpieces together using a flux-covered electrode.
Overview of Process
Shielded metal arc welding is a welding (joining by melting) process. The heat required to melt the metal is generated by a flux-covered electrode, which not only creates high temperatures, but also vaporizes the flux, causing the joint to be protected while cooling.
There are currently no additional notes for this process.
