What components make up a GMA welding system?

To determine

The components of GMA welding system.

Explanation

The basic components of a GMA welding system are listed below:

  • Electrode gun:

    It is a gun that is pointed over the weld cavity to weld the metal as the electrode is feed by the gun with a constant rate.

  • Electrode feeder unit:

    It is a unit used to feed the electrode at a constant rate so that uniform welding can be done.

  • Electrode supply:

    It is a unit which supplies the electrode to the wire feeder unit.

  • Shielding gas supply unit:

    Shielding gas is important part of a welding system as it prevents the weld from oxidation. Generally, the shielding gas unit contains cylinder and hoses.

  • Control circuit:

    It is used to control the feed rate, current for welding as well as the shielding gas for the weld...
