Similar to MIG welding, SAW involves the formation of an arc between a continuously-fed bare wire electrode and the workpiece. The process uses a flux to generate protective gases and slag, and to add alloying elements to the weld pool. A shielding gas is not required.

This type of welding process is used where high chances of corrosion is there, like welding on ship, in chemical factories etc.
