The important difference is that the former uses consumable electrodes whereas the latter uses a non-consumable electrode. In SMAW welding the electrode is typically made of the same material as that the base metal. Whereas in TIG welding the non-consumable electrode is used is made up of tungsten. Hope this will help you. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
