Concise yet thorough, Welding: A Management Primer and Employee Training Guide will aid those in welding management with supervision and control of their welding operations, while offering apprentices and industrial practitioners in-depth instruction on the basic manipulative welding and cutting processes. Extensively illustrated, this hands-on reference is organized in easy-to-understand user-specific sections. The first section presents managers and small shop owners with the technical background and practical expertise needed to implement and manage their specific welding operations. In the second section readers will find a complete curriculum for self or in-plant welder training. Easy t...
This publication is a comprehensive book on the welding of aluminium, aimed primarily at practising engineers and students of welding technology. After describing the properties of wrought and cast aluminium alloys, their applications, alloy designations and composition, both in heat-treatable and non heat-treatable alloys, it goes on to explain the process variables in weld metal transfer mechanisms, the ways of overcoming problems in GAS tungsten ARC welding, and distortion - also providing numerical methods of analysis. A thorough and timely guide to all aspects of aluminium welding.
Welding is a crucial manufacturing technique in creating countless numbers of commonly used items. From buildings to bridges and cars to computers, many of these items would be virtually impossible to produce without the use of welding. Welding Processes Handbook is a concise, explanatory guide to commonly used and commercially significant welding processes. It describes processes and equipment applicable to all instruction levels, and takes the novice or student through the individual steps involved in each process in a clear and comprehensible way. Topics such as welded joint design, quality assurance, and costing are all covered in detail. The handbook provides an up-to-date reference on the major applications of welding as they are used in industry. It is poised to become the leading guide to basic welding technologies for those new to the industry.
A standard reference for decades, this new edition of Pipe Welding Procedures continues to reinforce the welder's understanding of procedures. Drawing on his extensive practical and teaching experience in the field, the author describes in detail the manipulating procedures used to weld pipe joints. You will find useful information on heat input and distribution, essentials of shielded metal-arc technology, distortion, pipe welding defects, welding safety, essentials of welding metallurgy, and qualification of the welding procedure and the welder.
