Submerged Arc Welding: Technology That Gets Better With Age

Manufacturing technology today is worlds away from the techniques and processes used in the early part of the 20th century. However, in the case of Submerged Arc Welding (SAW), a uniquely safe and consistent welding method that’s been in use since the 1930s, new technology hasn’t reduced its relevance to machined parts manufacturing. As a
