SHIELDING GAS ADVANTAGES

 

Some of the advantages of GMAW process as compared to other arc welding process are as follows:

  • It is a continuous welding process and can be mechanised.
  • Welding can be done in all positions.
  • Higher welding speed.
  • Deeper penetration is possible, which permits the use of smaller size fillet welds for the equivalent strength.
  • Open arc nature of the process aids monitoring and control of the arc during welding.
  • Higher metal deposition rate.
  • Less distortion due to higher welding speed.
  • Avoids the chore of cleaning a solidified slag from the surface of each weld pass.
