STICK Welders (SMAW)
Longevity offers a wide variety of Stick Welding Equipment also known as ARC Welding, Arc Welders, and/or Stick Welders. Shielded metal arc welding (SMAW), also known as manual metal arc welding (MMA or MMAW), flux shielded arc welding or informally as stick welding, is a manual arc welding process that uses a consumable electrode covered with a flux to lay the weld.
As an electric current, in the form of either alternating current or direct current from a welding power supply, is used to form an electric arc between the electrode and the metals to be joined. The workpiece and the electrode melts forming a pool of molten metal (weld pool) that cools to form a joint. As the weld is laid, the flux coating of the electrode disintegrates, giving off vapors that serve as a shielding gas and providing a layer of slag, both of which protect the weld area from atmospheric contamination.
Because of the versatility of the process and the simplicity of its equipment and operation, shielded metal arc welding is one of the world's first and most popular welding processes. It dominates other welding processes in the maintenance and repair industry, and though flux-cored arc welding is growing in popularity, SMAW continues to be used extensively in the construction of heavy steel structures and in industrial fabrication. The process is used primarily to weld iron and steels (including stainless steel) but aluminum, nickel and copper alloys can also be welded with this method.
Whether you are an enthusiast or a professional, Longevity offers a wide variety of Stick Welding machines. Our most popular Stick Welder is the STICKWELD 140, which is portable, yet powerful with a high duty cycle. However, we have a variety of other machines that are more powerful and capable of welding all popular electrodes including 6010, 6011, 6013, and 7018.
