ABSTRACT
The article offers information on making tack welds in various types of welding works. It notes that when welding a steel joint using tack welding, one must first consider if the two materials are compatible. It also states that steel welding can be done with flux-cored arc welding and submerged arc welding. In conclusion, it declares that tack welds must be given importance for it can be useful in welding endeavors.
