Welding Processes

Using the very best of Miller’s welding equipment allows us to perform flawless welds in various welding processes and positions.

Welding processes used include:

Shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), known informally as stick welding, is a manual arc welding process that uses a consumable electrode covered with a flux to lay the weld.

Gas metal arc welding (GMAW), sometimes referred to by its subtype of metal inert gas (MIG) welding, is a welding process in which an electric arc forms between a consumable wire electrode and the workpiece metal(s), which heats the workpiece metal(s), causing them to melt and join.

Flux-cored arc welding (FCAW or FCA) is a semi-automatic or automatic arc welding process. FCAW requires a continuously-fed consumable tubular electrode containing a flux and a constant voltage.

Dual shield – An externally supplied shielding gas is sometimes used, but often the flux itself is relied upon to generate the necessary protection from the atmosphere, producing both gaseous protection and liquid slag protecting the weld.

Gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), also known as tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding, is an arc welding process that uses a non-consumable tungsten electrode to produce the weld.

Hard facing/Weld overlay is a welding process where one or more metals with specific characteristics are applied to a base metal to improve desirable properties or to restore the original dimension of the component. Weld overlay may also be referred to as cladding, hard facing, weld cladding or weld overlay cladding.

Our welding team is certified in-house using destructive bend welding test methods. Our quality control officer has over 20 years experience in the welding inspection industry.
