Types of Welding

Welding process involves joining of two metals and sometimes non-metals such as plastic

There are many different types of weld, as below:

  1. Arc welding
  • Atomic Hydrogen Welding ( AHW)
  • Bare Metal Arc Welding (BMAW)
  • Carbon Arc Welding (CAW)

CAW-G—– Gas



  • Electro Gas Welding (EGW)
  • Electro Slag Welding (ESW)
  • Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW)
  • Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW)

GMAW-P—— Pulsed Arc

GMAW-S——Short Circuiting

  • Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW) or (TIG)


  • Plasma Arc Welding (PAW)
  • Shielded Metal Arc Welding (SMAW)
  • Stud Arc Welding (SW)
  • Submerged Arc Welding (SAW)


  • Friction Stir Welding
  • Laser Beam Welding
  • Electron Beam Welding

  EBW-HV ———High Vacuum

               EBW-MV ——–Medium Vacuum

               EBW-NV ———Non Vacuum

  • Thermit Welding
  • Oxy Fuel Gas Welding          

AAW – Air Acetylene Welding

                    OAW – Oxy Acetylene Welding

                    OHW – Oxy Hydrogen Welding

                     PGW – Pressure Gas Welding

  • Resistance Welding
    FW – Flash Welding 

           RPW – Projection Welding

           RSW – Resistance Spot Welding

           RSEW- Resistance Seam Welding

           PEW – Percussion Welding

           HFRW – High Frequency Resistance Welding

           UW – Upset Welding

  • Co-extrusion Welding
  • Diffusion Welding
  • Forge Welding
  • Explosion Welding
  • Hot Pressure Welding
  • Roll welding
  • Ultrasonic Welding ………. And more

Types of Brazing

Brazing is a process of joining dis-similar metals

The following are the different types of brazing methods

  1. Arc Brazing (AB)
  2. Block Brazing (BB)
  3. Diffusion Brazing (DB)
  4. Flow Brazing (FLB)
  5. Furnace Brazing (FB)
  6. Induction Brazing (IB)
  7. Infrared Brazing (IRB)
  8. Resistance Brazing (RB)
  9. Torch Brazing (TB)
  10. Twin Carbon Arc Brazing (TCAB)

Types of Soldering

The following are the different types of Soldering methods

  1. Dip Soldering ( DS )
  2. Furnace Soldering ( FS )
  3. Induction Soldering ( IS )
  4. Infrared Soldering ( IRS )
  5. Iron Soldering (INS)
  6. Resistance Soldering ( RS )
  7. Torch Soldering ( TS )
  8. Wave Soldering (WS )
