ARC WELDING

Arc welding is the fusion of two pieces of metal by an electric arc between the pieces being joined – the work pieces – and an electrode that is guided along the joint between the pieces. The electrode is either a rod that simply carries current between the tip and the work, or a rod or wire that melts and supplies filler metal to the joint.


TYPES AND APPLICATION OF ELECTRODES

At Pawel, we manufacture 30 types of electrodes to serve various phases of industry:


Mild Steel Electrodes; to be used in structural work, ship-building, steel pipes, tanks and to weld low alloy mild steels.
Hard Facing Electrodes; to be used for surfacing of rails, repairing manganese steel castings, dredger bucket lips, excavator teeth, reinforcing pulverisers, etc.
Special Electrodes; for welding machinable deposits on cast iron, bronze copper, monel and stainless steel.
