What is stick welding?


Stick welding is also known as shielded Metal Arc welding (SMAW) or manual metal arc welding(MMA) . Stick welding is an arc welding process in which coalescence of metals is produced by heat from an electric arc that is maintained between the tip of a consumable covered electrode and the surface of the base metal in the joint being welded.

Stick, the most basic of welding processes, offers the easiest option for joining steel and other metals. Stick welding power sources deliver inexpensive options for welding versatility, portability and reliability.

Stick welders are used in small welding shop, by the homeowner, by the farmer for repair of equipment – as well as industrial fabrication applications, structural steel erection and other commercial metals joining. All common materials can be welded with a stick machine, be sure to select the appropriate stick electrode for the material being welded.
