 The Skill of Welding

"WELDING" may be defined as: "A metal - joining - process by the use of heat to cause coalescence between two or more pieces of metal. It may be performed with or without the use of a filler metal and with or without the application of pressure."

A WELD is a homogeneous bond between two or more pieces of metal, wherein, the strength of the welded joint equals or exceeds the strength of the original base metal * *; this is accomplished in part by controlling the Welding Process Variables and the elimination of welding defects.

THE WELDMENT

Base plate - Face plate - Tacked - The weld - Weldment

 

Welding is a job skill used within many trades to manufacture, construct, produce, fabricate and / or repair objects of metal. Welding is not a trade! it is a skill. Basically, there are three levels:
Semi-Skilled --- Skilled --- Highly Skilled

or

Entry Level Welder --- Advanced Level Welder --- Expert Level Welder

These can be attained by completing an intensive training and certification program.

Today, The skill of welding * is vital in the areas of Commerce, National Defense , Aerospace Video, Shipbuilding, Transportation, Building and Bridge Construction, Commercial Equipment, Industrial Apparatus and Ornamental Iron & Fabrication Shops.

From its ancient roots until today, the science and art of welding has served well both the artisan who mastered the skill and the culture in which the craftsman practiced and applied this skills.

 

PARTS OF THE WELD

Root - Throat - Leg - Toe - Face

 

The skill of welding is very diverse and covers a wide range of competency types and skill levels such as entry-level, apprentice, journeymen, welding technician, certified welder, production welder, fabricator, welder fitter, pipe fitter / steam fitter, welding educator, non-traditional, { see: DOT OOH O*NET }

 

WELD JOINTS

Butt - Corner - Edge - Lap - Tee

WELD TYPES

Bead- Fillet - Groove - Bevel - Plug - Spot

 

WELD POSITIONS

FlatFlat - Horizontal - Vertical - Overhead - 5G horiz. fixed - 6G 45 deg.

 

The skill of welding is principally learned through welder training and certification programs run by Vocational Technical High Schools - Private Trade Schools - Community Colleges - Career & Technical Centers - The Military - Company Training Programs and Trade Union or Apprenticeship Programs.

 

WELDING SYMBOL

 WELDING, an Ancient Craft (Gen.4:22). Through historical artifacts, the science and art of welding can be traced back a very long way. The tools, techniques the applications and methods have changed tremendously, however, the purposeful function has basically remained the same.

 

METAL ALLOY

Aluminum - Copper - Cast iron - Steel

 

It is believed, by some, that welding was successfully applied by the ancient metallurgist to first craft jewelry and utensils. The applications was later extended to become a major factor in the manufacture, production and repair of tools and weapons. Today, welding is a critical force in our Nations defense Video A and commerce.

 

STRUCTURAL SHAPES

Sheet - Pipe - Angle - Beam - Tube - Plate

The skill of welding, over the centuries, has evolved from the basic forge welding process to encompass over 80 different welding processes including plasma, electron-beam and state of the art lasers. although the definitation and purpose for welding has remained the same, the equipment, the configuration, the methods, techniques and procedures has changed tremendously. These welding processes range from simple to complex. Even the application of many of these welding process range from: Manual to Semi-Automatic, Automatic, Automated, Computerized and so on. However, the successful application of any given welding operation depends mainly on the welding operators understanding and command of the PROCESS VARIABLES.
