    Has one read the text?

    Start with the statement, "Electroslag welding is capable . . . ."

    How does that compare with capabilities of other processes?

    The main advantage is deposition rate (kg per hour / lb/h) & joint preparation is not as critical as say SubArc

    Application...... thick, big, heavy things.
