Abstract

Plasma gas metal arc welding (GMAW) is a process that can be defined as a combination of plasma arc welding (PAW) and GMAW within a single torch, where a filler wire is fed through the plasma nozzle orifice. Although originally referred to as plasma-MIG welding, the preferred term is plasma-GMAW. This article provides a detailed discussion on the operating procedures, advantages, disadvantages, and applications of GMAW and describes the equipment used in the plasma-GMAW.
