SMAW is effective when welding 316L stainless steel sheet thick parts outdoors. Indoor, SMAW or MIG. For MIG, make sure you have the correct filler wire and shielding gas to achieve the required weld profile and penetration.

 

For thinner plates, tubes and tubes, it is recommended to use suitable filler rods and shielding gas for TIG welding. If there is a proper barrier, TIG welding can be performed indoors or outdoors to minimize the influence of wind and other factors on the shielding gas around the arc.
