FCA Welding Machine: Its Purpose

This is an article for the willing persons who prefer learning about Fluxed Cored Arc Welding.

                      This welding process is very much similar to the other arc welding process. The basic difference is this doesn’t require a shielding gas, instead of that it uses fluxed electrode wire. So, in this welding metal pieces are joined by consuming that fluxed electrode.

Advantages of Arc Welding-

i.                    This process doesn’t all the time need gas to protect.

ii.                  It’s a process which can be learned in very short time, very easy for the beginners.

iii.                Fluxed electrode wire consumes itself and joins the metals.

Some Disadvantages of FCA welding-

i.                    Lustiest technique in the field of best multi-purpose welding machines. This finally lets the slags remain on the welded surface. It further requires more cleanliness, without cleaning the surface one cannot use the said material as it so much dirty.

ii.                  Spatter is remaining afterward so it also needs to be cleaned.


Otherwise, some accurate functioning of multi-purpose welding can be done by another method. Stick welding is one of the best in kind. Firstly it is easy to learn and easy to install. Then it comes to its perfection. The preciseness of this topic is very well touched. And no spatter and slags are to be cleaned after.

                      Any other welding like MIG and TIG uses shielding gasses. It’s not a easy technique to learn and apply. You have to have control on three elements all together; the source energy controller, trigger, and the electrode wire. And when it comes to the inert gas matter the required solo or mixed gas are to be shielded from the whole process. So, it takes time and basically, this is used for a heavy job in the factory purpose and manufacturing huge parts of machines.

Let the discussion start with some other details of welding and its purpose-

                      The basic question is why we need multi-purpose machines for welding? there must be several kinds of answers in the community but if I consider my view I will describe you why. The answer is, not only to join to metals is the purpose of welding, but also to prepare several parts to assemble a huge product as well as if a huge product is harmed, the part which is affected is to sort out and welding can cut out that from the main body as well as it can insert a good part back in the main body later, you can read more info in our forum.

                      There must be other questions like, what is meant to be some particular gases to work as a shield for some methods of welding? Here I can say that in those methods like TIG or MIG inert gases are vital. How? Let me tell you about the metals through which electric current is passed and at the same time a reactant wire heats up and melts to join the materials. In this whole scene, the metal gets oxidized and it is ready to react with respect to the environment itself. To stop that oxidation and put it down cool the inert gases are sprayed. This way these are called shielding gases.
