Why use Stick Welding?

  • Stick Welding is an extremely versatile process with respect to location and environment of the operation. Welding can be done inside, outside, on a production line, a ship, a bridge, an oil refinery, a cross country pipeline, or similar types of locations. Gas and water hoses are not needed, and welding cables extend significantly beyond the power source. In remote areas, gasoline or diesel-powered units can be used
  • Equipment is relatively simple, inexpensive and portable
  • Auxiliary gas shielding or granular flux are not required
  • The process is less sensitive to wind and draft than gas-shielded arc welding processes
  • It can be used in areas where access is limited
  • The process is suitable for most of the commonly used metals and alloys
