MCAW Metal cored arc welding
Metal cored arc welding (MCAW) is a variant of the MIG/MAG welding process using a metal sheath and a core of various powdered Materials, producing silicate (slag) Islands on the face of a weld bead. External gas shielding is required.
What are the advantages of MCAW over MIG/MAG welding process?
- High deposition rate and deposition efficiency
- High welding speed and duty cycle
- High productivity and low heat input
- Low slag volume, low spatter levels
- Nice bead appearance
- Suitable for galvanized and aluminized materials
