What Are Welding Electrodes?

 If you're interested in a welding profession, you may have already looked to the welding tools and equipment which are utilized. Among the most indispensable welding gear is your welding gun or Plasma Arc Welding Machine that generates an electric current that melts and melts metal. Welding electrodes are crucial, and it's necessary that a welder knows which kind to use for various tasks.

An electrode is a coated metal wire. It is made of materials similar to the metal being welded. For starters, there are consumable and non-consumable electrodes.  In shield metal arc welding (SMAW) also known as stick, Welding Electrodes are consumable, which means that the electrode is consumed during its use and melts with the weld. In Tungsten Inert Gas welding (TIG) electrodes are non-consumable, so they don’t melt and become part of the weld. With Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) or MIG welding, electrodes are continuously fed wire.  Flux-cored arc welding requires a continuously fed consumable tubular electrode containing a flux.
