Commonly joining parts can be done by fasten them with rivets or bolts, solder or weld them together.
Welding is a process that creates a continuous joint upon large materials surfaces. This advantage of
welding used to make boilers or other enclosed containers.
Welding is a fabrication that joins materials by causing fusion, which usually melts the base material.
In addition, filler materials are typically added to the joint. The joint is created in the process of cooling
the pool of those molten materials. As a rule, a base material is not as strong as a joint. In addition,
welded parts can be pressurized.
The most widely used materials in welded constructions are carbon and low-alloy steels. The
weldability of steels varies depending on a carbon content and total alloying content. Another good
weldable material is Aluminium and its alloys. Despite the high thermal conductivity that makes its
welding difficult, copper and its alloys are also well weldable. As a rule, you can easily weld plastic
or glass. They usually welded by heating to melting range and by simply pressing surfaces together.
Sometimes best plasma cutter welder combo is effective decision.
A proper weld joint can be prevented by dirt, rust, grease, and oxidation. Hot metal requires protection
and all weld processes use one of two protection methods: flux or shielding gas. Welding flux is used
in solid, paste or liquid form. When evaporated, it creates a small pocket of gas. This prevents
oxidation. After welding the layer of solid flux must be removed. Shielding gas protects weld directly
by surrounding it.
The fusion technique was developed when mankind discovered the iron forging. The process of
joining small pieces of iron to larger ones was through heating to welding temperature and hammering
or pressing together. Oxyacetylene welding, arc welding, friction welding, electron-beam welding,
laser welding, resistance and other welding are the most common up-to-date techniques. The largest
total volume of welding is shielded metal-arc welding. In this process, an electric arc is used to melt
the electrode’s metal and transfer it to the joint. Oxyacetylene (or gas) welding is another common
technique. The source of heat in this process is acetylene burned in the atmosphere of oxygen. For the
resistance welding, the main source of heat is the electrical resistance of the joint. Such welds are
made using low-voltage and high current power source with pressure applied. A dense stream of highvelocity electrons bombarding the joint is a source of heat for electron-beam welding. If you use the
friction of moving parts, this is called the friction welding. Laser welding is accomplished when
materials are fused together by heat generated from a laser source.
The design of joint, filler, base material and flux influence the quality of the weld. The strength of
material and weld depends on the welding method and concentration of energy input, type of the flux
and filler, and weldability of the base material. The weld quality also much depends on the heataffected zone. Usually, one of the destructive or nondestructive methods is used to test the quality of
the weld. Gas and non-metallic inclusions, cracks, incomplete penetration, distortions, lack of fusion
and lamellar tearing are common defects of welds.
