Based on the previous data, the Q690 steel was overlay welded through the FCAW technology under two common parameters for industry in this work.
FCAW (Flux Cored Arc Welding) is the more common of the welding types because it combines the simplicity of Arc welding with MIG's ease of use.
The current trend is toward the use of semi-automatic and automatic welding processes using FCAW and GMAW, which are about equal in terms of popularity.
