Generally known as stick or arc welding. Arc welding is the most basic of all welding types, is easy to master in a home welding situation. Can be used for manufacturing, construction and repairs, very much well suited for heavy metal size 4 millimetres upwards. 

GMAW (Gas Metal Arc Welding) NU0032
More commonly called MIG welding this welding type is the most widely used and perhaps the most easily mastered type of welding for industry and home use. The GMAW process is suitable for fusing mild steel, stainless-steel as well as aluminium.

GTAW (Tungsten Inert Gas) NU0033
