The Advancement of Perforation Techniques

The production of perforated metal has been an essential manufacturing and fabrication process since the mid-19th century when the mining industry employed a primitive version of the technique to produce screens used for filtration. The process has come a long way since the Industrial Revolution. These days, it is possible to generate a wide variety … Read more

Shielded Metal Arc Welding

Shielded metal arc welding, otherwise known as manual metal arc welding or flux shielded arc welding, is a process that uses a flux-coated electrode to form the weld. Its process doesn’t require much in the way of specialized equipment, making it very popular. How It Works As electricity passes through the electrode, the flux forms … Read more

Flux-Cored Arc Welding

Flux-core arc welding (FCAW) is a semi-automatic or automatic arc welding process with a very high production rate. The unique properties of FCAW give it a few advantages over other types of welding. It also contains its own shielding method and does not need an extra gas tank which results in increased mobility. How Does … Read more
