What are the three common welding processes?
The three common welding processes are oxyfuel welding, arc welding, and resistance welding.
There are far more than 5 types or processes of welding. Currently the American Welding Society (AWS) states that there are more than 80 different welding and joining processes. However, some of the common welding processes include shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), gas metal arc welding (GMAW), gas tungsten arc welding (GTAW), flux cored arc welding (FCAW), and oxyfuel gas welding (OFW).
It can be. Basic welding techniques can get you started in the welding field. Stick welding in the flat position for example. The more experience you get usually translates to more money. Certain processes take more skill such as TIG or plasma welding as well as pipe welding and underwater welding. These are considered highly skilled.
