Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW)

An arc welding process which melts and joins metals by heating them with an arc between a continuous, consumable electrode wire and the work.  Shielding is obtained from a flux contained within the electrode core.  Depending upon the type of flux-cored wire, added shielding may or may not be provided from externally supplied gas or gas mixture.
