ShoeRyan: Arc welding is an umbrella term. Almost all modern welding techniques use some type of an electrical arc. In the past, forge welding and other methods were used to join metal. Stick welding, known formally as 'shielded metal arc welding', was the first method of arc welding that was widespread and well-known. As a result, it ended up being associated with the name 'arc' welding. However, in today's plethora of available welding methods, it is an ignorant term. Other welding techniques common to the industry include: 'Gas metal arc welding' (Which is also broken into sub categories), 'Gas tungsten arc welding', 'Flux-cored arc welding', and 'Gas shielded flux-cored arc welding'. Notice the use of the word 'arc'?
