In the plastic welding, also called the pressure welding, the pieces of metal to be joined are heated to a plastic state and then forced together by external pressure whereas in fusion welding, also called the non- pressure welding, the material at the joint is heated to a molten state and allowed to solidify. Former one includes forge welding, resistance welding, thermit welding and gas welding the latter includes gas welding, arc welding and thermit welding without pressure.
