Welding and Joining Technology

Welding and Joining Technology

Welding is the most common way of permanently joining metal parts. In this process, heat is applied to metal pieces, melting and fusing them to form a permanent bond. Welders work in a variety of industries, from car racing to manufacturing. The difficulty of the weld is determined by its position-horizontal, vertical, overhead, or 6G, circular, as in large pipes, and by the type of metals to be used. Welders and cutters may work outdoors, often in inclement weather, or indoors, sometimes in a confined are designed to contain sparks and glare. About 50% of welders, solderers, and brazers work 40 hours a week, overtime is common, and about 1 out of every 5 welders work 50 or more hours per week.
