Welding Processes, Part 1
Gain a comprehensive overview of the latest scientific and technological developments in welding! This peer-reviewed volume represents a tremendous leap forward in welding technology. The precise control of welding parameters, advanced techniques, complex applications, and new materials discussed in this updated volume are dramatically changed from those described in previous editions. Detailed information on the following welding processes:
- Shielded metal arc
- Gas tungsten
- Gas metal arc
- Flux cored arc
- Submerged arc
- Plasma arc
- Plus chapters on electroslag, stud, and oxyfuel gas welding; brazing, soldering, oxygen cutting; and arc cutting and gouging.
- Background information on arc welding power sources enhanced with schematics of equipment, wiring diagrams, and tables
- Information on the digital or computerized control of welding parameters, advanced techniques, and complex applications applied to new materials and equipment
- Safe practices sections in each chapter
The fifteen chapters of this volume provide updated information on the arc welding and cutting processes, oxyfuel gas welding and cutting, brazing, and soldering.
This peer-reviewed volume represents a tremendous leap forward in welding technology. While many of the basics of the welding process have remained substantially the same, the precise control of welding parameters, advanced techniques, complex applications and new materials discussed in this updated volume are dramatically changed from those described in previous editions. In particular, advancements in digital or computerized control of welding parameters have resulted in consistently high weld quality for manual and mechanized welding and the repeatability necessary for successful automated operations.
Chapter 1 is a compilation of information on arc welding power sources. Subsequent chapters present specific information on shielded metal arc welding, gas tungsten arc welding, gas metal arc welding, flux cored arc welding, submerged arc welding, plasma arc welding, electrogas welding, arc stud welding, electroslag welding, oxyfuel gas welding, brazing, soldering, oxygen cutting, and arc cutting and gouging.
Appendices A and B address safety issues. Appendix A reproduces the American Welding Society Lens Shade Selector. Appendix B is a list of national and international safety standards applicable to welding, cutting, and allied processes. Appendix C lists AWS filler metal specifications and related documents.
This volume, like the others preceding it, is a voluntary effort by the members of the Welding Handbook Committee, The Welding Handbook Volume 2 Committee, and the Chapter Committees. An important contribution is the review of each chapter provided by AWS’s Technical Activities Committee and other specialists. (ISBN 0-87171-729-8)
