Welding types

Metal welding and types of welding for every need

Welding includes different types of processes and there is no absolute best process. Knowing the differences is fundamental in order to choose the most suitable type for the work to be carried out.

People often do not know the real potential of their welding machine, from the point of view of both mechanical strength and aesthetics. They risk using it far below its capabilities.

On the other hand, an incorrect type of welding or an error in the choice of machine can lead to below par quality of work or inefficiencies impacting the production process.


We can group welding into two macro areas to simplify the concept:

Welding with material input

  • With use of inert gas
    • TIG welding
    • MIG welding
  • Without the use of gas: electrode welding only
    • MAG Welding

Welding without material input

  • Resistance welding
  • Laser welding
