DescriptionDesigned as a reference and background text for students in welding technology, this book would be a valuable volume to anyone making a career in welding. The text has been intentionally simplified to give it widespread application to anyone associated with welding as a production process. The intent is to give a broad perspective of the fusion processes by which metals are joined, without over elaboration on specific subjects.
Processes which have widespread applications such as shielded metal-arc and semiautomatic self-shielded and gas shielded electrodes are discussed in considerable detail. Plasma-arc welding is discussed only briefly. This weighting of the topics is based on current usage of the welding processes in industry, and thus the proportionate career opportunities.
This book draws heavily on The Procedure Handbook published by The Lincoln Electric Company. (We would not recommend purchase if you have that book.) It also draws from standardizing and code literature from the American Welding Society, American Society of Metals, AISC, ASTM, API, AISI, ASME, and others.
384 pages, 8" x 10-3/4", gold-embossed hard cover.
