Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW)
Mag Welding (SMAW)
Shielded metal arc welding (SMAW) is likewise alluded to as arc or stick welding.
The procedure includes the warming of the base metal to combination or welding temperature by an electric circular segment that is started when the covered electrode is tapped or scratch began the base metal. The covering or motion covering on the electrode provides both flux and protecting gas for the molten weld (the puddle). The flux separates to make protecting gas to keep the barometrical air away from the molten weld pool, and it usually makes a defensive slag that structures over the highest point of the weld to ensure it as it hardens or cools. The anodes come in 9-to 15-inch straight lengths, in the scope of wire thickness from 1⁄16 inch to 3⁄8 inch, thus the name stuck.
