Welding with electrodes course

Need a professional course in welding with electrodes? You’ve come to the right place with VCL. Our qualified instructors will show you the tricks of the trade.

Electrode welding

Shielded metal arc welding (SMAW for short) is also called stick welding in the trade. The principal is simple but very reliable. When welding, you strike an arc between a consumable electrode covered with flux, and the workpiece.

No shielding gas is required. This makes shielded metal arc welding particularly suitable for marine applications.

Coatings

Within SMAW there are three distinct coatings:

  • Rutile
  • Basic
  • Cellulose

Sectors

SMAW is predominantly found in:

  • Pipelines
  • Construction industry
  • Gas distribution networks
  • Maintenance and repairs
