What is Welding?
Welding is a process for joining similar metals. It basically joins metals by melting and fusing the metals being joined and the filler metal applied. Welding is a localized heat input and involves ferrous and non-ferrous based metals such as steel, stainless steel, and aluminum. Welding covers a wide temperature range that can reach up to 1649ºC.
TYPE OF WELDINGS:
Gas welding, Arc welding (TIG Welding and MIG Welding), Resistance welding (Spot Welding), Solid state welding, Radiant energy welding, Thermo-chemical welding.
BENEFITS OF WELDING:
- Proper weld joints can be stronger or as strong as the base metals being joined.
- The welding joint boundaries more or less disappear at the weld
- A wide range of metals and its alloy or dissimilar metals can be joined by welding process.
- Welding joining of metals are performed in any position, so its no need any kind of special construction
APPLICATIONS OF WELDING:
A form of welding is used in a majority of items you use and depend on in your day to day life. It ranges from the car you drive to the chair you sit on in your home.
