The influence of kind and type of electrode wire, characteristics of its melting, as well as composition of shielding gas, on welding-technological properties and technological quality of welds in joints of low-alloyed steels of increased and high strength is considered. The ways and means of achieving a consistently high technological quality of welds, increasing the efficiency of the process and reducing the level of gross evolutions of welding fumes are noted. 14 Ref., 4 Figures.
