The most commonly used and Affordable welding is Stud Welding because it is cost-efficient.
The different types of Welding processes in steel structures are as follows:-
1. Stud Welding:- It involves the electric process of welding a fastener on a metal base by heating both the components with an arc.
2. Flux Core Welding:- this involves a consumable tubular electrode containing a flux and a constant voltage welding power supply. It’s A portable and fast welding process, and less-skilled workers can easily undergo this.
3. Shield metal arc welding (SMAW):- it involves a consumable fixed-length electrode covered with a flux, and an electric power source is used to weld two metals together. After the completion of this process, mineral coating flux Of electrode disintegrates and releases a gas Commonly known as Shielding gas, which saves joint from unfavorable atmospheric conditions.
