List some factors that have led to the increased use of FCA welding.

Expert Solution
To determine

Factors to increase use of FCA welding.

Explanation of Solution

FCA stands for flux cored arc welding. It consists of a consumable electrode. It is a semiautomatic or automatic arc welding. A flux coated consumable electrode is continuously feed with a constant voltage and constant current power supply. It has high welding speed and portability, less skilled welder is required.

Flux cored arc welding have led to used increased now a days. Following factors are considered for the increased use of FCA welding.

1) Diameter of the electrodes is less as compared to other welding process.

2) Equipments are more reliable than other welding processes.

3) Guns are better.

4) Electrode feed system is improved as it used continuous fed consumable tabular electrodes.

5) Better quality of flux is available.
