Submerged arc welding or saw is a form of welding that takes place underneath a layer of flux material. This material could be any of a variety of different compounds. The flux material acts as a guard against contamination in the weld, also creates sparks to shield the arc.
Why do we need Submerged Arc Welding?
Today, many factories have high demand for products that require welding. Submerged arc welding allows for those to be carried out quickly and consistently. Submerged arc welding is also a much safer way of performing welds using arc welding.
There is a variety of saw equipment available, including welding tractors that are used to automatically weld a seam, and flux recovery units, that use a vacuum to "hoover"up excess flux from the weld.
Often used alongside positioning equipment, like column and booms and pipe rotators, sub arc equipment is used in pipe and vessel fabrication within a variety of fabrication industries.
