This is the process where you use direct electrical heating on the ends of the pieces to be welded and then forge them together. This type of welding process comes under the category of resistance welding and this process is commonly known as FLASH BUTT WELDING.By this process material are joined axially.the two workpieces to be joined are placed end to end on a same axis . a small gap is maintained between the workpiece and a very high current(100000A) is passed through the workpiece. once the gap between the two material reaches a critical value the air present between workpiece ionizes with a FLASH. this flash removes the oxide layer ( due to this oxide layer its difficult to weld) from the material surface and also makes the material little soft near the ends. Once the material becomes sufficiently soft AXIAL PRESSURE is increased to make a joint.
This process is used to weld sometimes railway tracks(Delhi metro track),automobile axle,joining blades of a band saw etc.
VOLTAGE <10volts , CURRENT = 100000amp , POWER = 200kva
seam welding has to be performed from one end to the other. flash welding can do the entire seam at once.
Flash butt welding, a technique for joining segments of metal rail or pipe in which segments aligned end to end are electronically charged, producing an electric arc that melts and welds the ends of the segments, yielding an exceptionally strong and smooth joint. Also called flash welding.

writing a paper and was wanting info
Yes, the procedure and specifications are covered in the AREMA (American Railway Engineering and Maintenance Association) manual Chapter 4.
An arc flash is the dome shaped blue light over a welding spot and is very dangerous. You will not forget the first arc flash that you see properly as it feels like sand in the eyes.
Yes- IF the flash suppressor is permanently attached by welding or hard (silver) solder, and is not readily removable.
When you wear safety glasses or any lenses (not contacts) you will drastically reduce the risk of "welders flash". Its almost safe to say you cannot get a true case (wearing safety glasses) unless your really being foolish and welding without an appropriate welding shaded lens. -RedSeal Welder
There is, Gas welding, Stick or Arc welding, Mig welding, Tig welding,
TIG welding,MIG welding,plasma arc welding, ARC welding & laser welding
The three common welding processes are oxyfuel welding, arc welding, and resistance welding.
There are many MANY types of welding processes, but the most common for metal are: Gas-Torch welding, TIG welding, MIG welding, Flux wire welding, and Stick welding.
There are many different types of specialized welding. Mig welding and Tig welding are only a few. More specialized welding, such as underwater welding, are the highest paying welding jobs.
One type of welding is tube welding. Another type if mig welding.
SAW welding is a type of arc welding while ERW welding is spot or seam welding. SAW stand for submerged arc welding while ERW stands for electric resistance welding.
You welding by gettinging a weldering and welding too thingings togetherings.
smaw welding is sheilded metal arc welding
I asked you why was welding important
what is the difference between ultrasonic welding & radiographic welding
Mainly In spot welding & resistance welding two type welding machines are used :- 1. Air Cooled & 2. water Cooled.
seam welding is same as of spot welding.' Difference is that in case of seam welding the rotating wheel is used.....nd it is the fast process than spot welding.....
The art of welding has many shapes and forms. There is gas welding, stick welding, tig welding and mig welding. Each has its atvantages in working with various materials. It depends upon what you are welding and what you want to accomplish. For instance, welding rusty metal is usually welded with stick welding as the stick penetrates and burns up rust better than other methods. As far as I know, plasma is only for cutting and not welding. Tig welding is better for intricate welds and visual appeal.
CS Welding is known as Carbon Steel welding that is more beneficial and easy to use for welding purpose.
