Welding is a type of process that uses heat or pressure to melt parts and attach two or more materials together. It is used for permanently joining parts and these parts are called as a weldment. Welding process can be categorized into two types of solid-state welding and fusion welding. In solid-state welding, pressure or combination of heat and pressure are used for joining parts without the requirement of any type of filler material. Solid-state welding can be future divided into ultrasonic welding, friction welding, and diffusion welding. In fusion welding, using heat base metal is melted. The filler material is added in order to make welding easier and offer strength to the joint.  Fusion welding is commonly divided into resistance welding, electron beam welding, oxyfuel welding, laser beam welding, and arc welding.

There are various types of tools used for welding. Welding machine or power supply provides electrical current for the process. The electrode in the welding gun uses electricity in order to create an arc between metal and itself. An electric arc is used for fusing two metals together. Depending on the type of welding materials are selected. Welding is affordable and requires less equipment. Welding equipment is portable and even works on dirty metals. It also improves productivity and flexibility. Welding reduces energy consumption, weld distortion, as well as production cost. It also improves safety. These are some of the factors supporting growth in demand for welding equipment among end users. However, less availability of skilled workers could affect their growth.
