In these arc welding processes, consumable hardfacing wire is fed continuously from a spool through the welding torch into the arc, where it is melted and transferred to the workpiece
In MIG welding, or Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), the weld pool is protected from the atmosphere by a stream of shielding gas. The MIG process is very flexible — it can be partially or fully mechanized and is suitable for a wide range of applications.
Submerged Arc Welding
In the Submerged Arc Welding (SAW) process, a mineral-based fluxing powder flows around the consumable wire and is melted by the arc. It forms a gaseous shield around the arc and also forms a slag on top of the weld pool, shielding the cooling weld pool from the atmosphere.
