This technique has been used for centuries and has become integral to modern methods of construction (MMC).  There are currently over 30 welding types which can be divided into four main welding processes – Flux Cored Arc Welding (FCAW), Metal Active Gas (MAG) Welding (also known as Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW), Manual Arc Welding (MMA) and Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) Welding (or Gas Tungsten Arc Welding (GTAW).

Q. What are the most common welding joints?
