AWS - Welding Handbook; where the best technical skills come together!
Welding Processes, Volume 2, Part 1 is the second of the five volumes of the 9th edition of the Welding Handbook. The 15 chapters of this volume provide updated information on the arc welding and cutting processes, oxyfuel gas welding and cutting, brazing and soldering.
Chapter 1 of Welding Processes, Part 1 is a compilation of information on arc welding power sources. Subsequent chapters present specific information on shielded metal arc welding, gas tungsten arc welding, gas metal arc welding, flux cored arc welding, submerged arc welding, plasma arc welding, electrogas welding, arc stud welding, electroslag welding, oxyfuel gas welding, brazing, soldering, oxygen cutting, and arc cutting and gouging.
Appendix A and B address safety issues. Appendix A reproduces the American Welding Society Lens Shade Selector. Appendix B is a list of national and international safety standards applicable to welding, cutting and allied processes.
Although each chapter in this volume has a section on safe practices as they pertain to the specific process, readers should refer to Chapter 17, “Safe Practices,” of Volume 1 and to the appropriate standards listed in Appendix B. Appendix C is a list of American Welding Society filler metal specifications and related documents.
These volumes represent the practical application of the principles discussed in the chapters of Volume 1, Welding Science and Technology, published in 2001.
