Description / Abstract:

INTRODUCTION

The methods of applying the various welding processes are categorized according to the degree of operator involvement in the performance of welding operations. In manual welding, defined in the American National Standard Standard Welding Terms and Definitions, AWS A3.0:2001, as “welding with a torch, gun, or electrode holder held and manipulated by hand,”1, 2 the welder performs the welding function and maintains continuous control of the welding operations by hand. In semiautomatic welding, defined as “manual welding with equipment that automatically controls one or more of the welding conditions,”3 the welder manipulates the welding gun to create the weld while the electrode is automatically fed to the arc.
