The article discusses the welding processes for connecting metal wires and rods to form different structures. Several welding methods are used to join wires, including lap, mash, butt and percussion welding. Mash and butt welding connect wires together by using heat and pressure, while percussion welding uses enough power supply to curved the two wires.
