Being a welder is a great occupation What is welding, and how does it work? Not many people know what welding is or how it works. According to Mary Bonk“welding is the process of heating and melting metal parts to join them together” (Bonk,3). A welding machine uses electricity to melt the electrode, fusing one piece of metal to another. The welding machine uses a ground that connects to the surface that allows the welder to create a flowing currant passing through the electrode and...

Filler metals melt with joining materials and are consumed during the welding process. Flux is used to produce a gas shield around the weld pool and to prevent the oxidation of hot metal. It acts as a deoxidizer and prevents the formation of porosity in the weld pool. Flux does not form the final part of welding...
