2020520&ensp·&enspShielded metal arc welding (SMAW), also known as manual metal arc welding (MMA or MMAW), flux shielded arc welding or informally as stick welding, is a manual arc welding process that uses a consumable electrode covered with a flux to lay the weld.. An electric current, in the form of either alternating current or direct current from a welding power supply, is used to form an electric arc

SCOPE At first glance, any repair, alteration or modification to an item of pressurised equipment that wassrcinally postweld heat treated after fabrication should be postweld heat treated again after repair.This is not always possible, and efforts over the past 20 years have been aimed at finding
Lack of fusion is the result of the weld metal failing to fuse completely to the base metal or to the preceding weld bead. Its caused primarily by improper welding gun angle or incorrect travel speed. Avoid this problem by maintaining a 0 to 15degree gun angle during welding and keeping the arc on the leading edge of the weld pool.
