Shielded Metal Arc Welding Robots
Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW) is a common and reliable manual welding process. SMAW robots produce high quality welds at a lower cost.
Sometimes referred to as stick welding or manual metal arc (MMA), SMAW creates an arc between a consumable electrode covered in flux and the material being welded. The weld is shielded from contamination by the flux. The protective shielding gives this arc welding method greater resistance to varying conditions such as wind.

The basics of shielded metal arc welding
Shielded metal arc welding is one of the many welding applications on the market today. Depending on your specific needs, the shielded metal arc welding uses a consumable electrode coated with flux. Once the weld is produced, the flux disintegrates and produces a vapor as a shielding.
