In the years that we have used different types of welding that are available in the industry, we have specialized in shielded metal arc welding or SMAW.
SMAW is a fusion arc welding process.
It is one of the oldest modern welding techniques that are still quite popular in the welding industry.
The main process that is followed in this welding technique involves these important steps:
The process of the shielded metal arc welding is shielded which means that the weld pool is protected from the atmosphere with the use of a flux that is coated directly onto the consumable stick electrode.
SMAW is one of the most commonly used types of welding processes which requires using an electrode and electric current to join two or more metals together.
It can be more cost-effective than other welding processes because it uses inexpensive equipment and does not require external shielding. It can also be carried out in all types of weather.
The cost of shielded arc welding would vary and depend on several factors like:
Considering all of the above factors, the average cost of a welding project is $475. Contact us today for a free estimate on your needed shielded arc welding service. We will be happy to discuss with you the process and how much it will cost you to get your welding project done.
There are a variety of applications where the shielded metal arc welding process can be used.
The metals where SMAW works best include:
We work on various thicknesses of recommended metals for SMAW. The most common applications where we use SMAW include heavy-duty work with industrial iron and steel, like carbon steel and cast iron, and also low- and high-alloy steel and nickel alloys.
We serve several industries with quality shielded metal arc welding services.
These industries include:
In every welding project using the SMAW process, the alternating current or direct current is used to form an arc between the electrode and the base metal. The low welding current is enough to create the required heat. More current or amperage may be needed for welding thicker metals.
SMAW remains to be one of the most popular and most convenient welding methods because of its many advantages which include:
Our skilled welders can carry out shielded metal arc welding projects with excellent workmanship and skill. You are assured that you will get your welding project done with precision and safety.
We use top-quality materials in our SMAW process. Included in the basic tools for a successful stick welding project are:
Our welding experts also make sure they use safety equipment like a helmet, gloves, and protective clothing.
The plasma arc welding process uses a non-consumable electrode composed of sintered tungsten within a copper nozzle which allows plasma gas to flow with concentrated heat, allowing the base metal to melt and create a weld.
The tungsten arc welding process is similar to the gas tungsten arc welding process but uses an electrode composed of non-consumable tungsten. Inert gases are sued to protect the weld.
In the gas metal arc welding process, we use an electric arc formed between a consumable MIG wire electrode and the base metal of the workpiece to melt and join the metal.
