Beginning Arc Welding (SMAW) – Teach

Introduction Basic welding skills can be utilized by everyone. I took a welding class this term to learn the basics about welding so that I could do it for recreational and hobby purposes whenever I needed to. So, knowing that teaching a lesson about a subject helps me retain the information better, I was inspired to create my lesson to not only help others but better my knowledge on the subject. This Lesson is directed to a person who has very little knowledge about welding but has a basic grasp of general welding and general terminology. It is important for anyone who wants to fix, repair, or construct anything from metal to be able to properly weld. Welding can be used for recreational purposes (like I do), or as a profession.

Introduction to Flux Cored Wires

Flux-cored arc welding (FCAW) wires are certainly an integral part of the welding process. They aren’t new in the industry but understanding them can be confusing in absence of the right data. A welder needs to be aware of the various applications of flux core wires and with adequate knowledge of the, someone can confidently use them for various welding applications. Flux-cored wires have been available in two main versions: gas-shielded and self-shielded. Flux core wires have been in the welding industry from the 1950s. Both types are made of an outer sheath and are filled with flux from the inside, a compound which is a mixture of alloys, which are necessary to protect the weld from unwanted substances. Application FCAW needs electricity, filler metal, and some way to protect th...
