This paper describesthe basics of modern MAG-STT welding process and its advantages for root pass welding of construction steels in oil and gas industry. MAG-STT welding process was compared with competitive arc welding processes (SMAW and TIG), which are also used for root pass welding on pipes and plates. After experimental tests, the obtained results are analyzed and presented in this paper


Keywords – MAG, STT, welding, root pass
