Welding is used for making permanent joints. It is used in the manufacture of automobile bodies, aircraft frames, railway wagons, machine frames, structural works, tanks, furniture, boilers, general repair work and ship building. WELDING TYPES : TYPES Plastic Welding or Pressure Welding The piece of metal to be joined are heated to a plastic state and forced together by external pressure (Ex) Resistance welding Fusion Welding or Non-Pressure Welding The material at the joint is heated to a molten state and allowed to solidify (Ex) Gas welding, Arc welding Classification of welding processes: : Classification of welding processes: (i). Arc welding Carbon arc Metal arc Metal inert gas Tungsten inert gas Plasma arc Submerged arc Electro-slag (ii). Gas Welding Oxy-acetylene Air-acetylene Oxy-hydrogen (iii). Resistance Welding Butt Spot Seam Projection Percussion (iv)Thermit Welding (v)Solid State Welding Friction Ultrasonic Diffusion Explosive (vi)Newer Welding Electron-beam Laser (vii)Related Process Oxy-acetylene cutting Arc cutting Hard facing Brazing Soldering Arc welding : Arc welding Equipments: A welding generator (D.C.) or Transformer (A.C.) Two cables- one for work and one for electrode Electrode holder Electrode Protective shield Gloves Wire brush Chipping hammer Goggles Arc Welding Equipments : Arc Welding Equipments Metal arc welding : Metal arc welding Arc Welding : Arc Welding Uses an electric arc to coalesce metals Arc welding is the most common method of welding metals Electricity travels from electrode to base metal to ground Carbon Arc Welding : Carbon Arc Welding Arc welding : Arc welding Advantages Most efficient way to join metals Lowest-cost joining method Affords lighter weight through better utilization of materials Joins all commercial metals Provides design flexibility Limitations Manually applied, therefore high labor cost. Need high energy causing danger Not convenient for disassembly. Defects are hard to detect at joints. Comparison of A.C. and D.C. arc welding : Comparison of A.C. and D.C. arc welding Alternating Current (from Transformer) More efficiency Power consumption less Cost of equipment is less Higher voltage – hence not safe Not suitable for welding non ferrous metals Not preferred for welding thin sections Any terminal can be connected to the work or electrode Comparison of A.C. and D.C. arc welding : Comparison of A.C. and D.C. arc welding Direct Current (from Generator) Less efficiency Power consumption more Cost of equipment is more Low voltage – safer operation suitable for both ferrous non ferrous metals preferred for welding thin sections Positive terminal connected to the work Negative terminal connected to the electrode GAS WELDING : GAS WELDING Sound weld is obtained by selecting proper size of flame, filler material and method of moving torch The temperature generated during the process is 33000c When the metal is fused, oxygen from the atmosphere and the torch combines with molten metal and forms oxides, results defective weld Fluxes are added to the welded metal to remove oxides Common fluxes used are made of sodium, potassium. Lithium and borax. Flux can be applied as paste, powder,liquid.solid coating or gas. GAS WELDING EQUIPMENT... : GAS WELDING EQUIPMENT... 1. Gas Cylinders Pressure Oxygen – 125 kg/cm2 Acetylene – 16 kg/cm2 2. Regulators Working pressure of oxygen 1 kg/cm2 Working pressure of acetylene 0.15 kg/cm2 Working pressure varies depends upon the thickness of the work pieces welded. 3. Pressure Gauges 4. Hoses 5.

Slide 17: Three basic types of oxyacetylene flames used in oxyfuel-gas welding and cutting operations: (a) neutral flame; (b) oxidizing flame; (c) carburizing, or reducing flame. GAS CUTTING : Ferrous metal is heated in to red hot condition and a jet of pure oxygen is projected onto the surface, which rapidly oxidizes Oxides having lower melting point than the metal, melt and are blown away by the force of the jet, to make a cut Fast and efficient method of cutting steel to a high degree of accuracy Torch is different from welding Cutting torch has preheat orifice and one central orifice for oxygen jet PIERCING and GOUGING are two important operations Piercing, used to cut a hole at the centre of the plate or away from the edge of the plate Gouging, to cut a groove into the steel surface GAS CUTTING GAS CUTTING… : GAS CUTTING… Automatic Gas Cutting Manual Gas Cutting Weld joints : Weld joints Brazing and Soldering : Brazing and Soldering Brazing It is a low temperature joining process. It is performed at temperatures above 840º F and it generally affords strengths comparable to those of the metal which it joins. It is low temperature in that it is done below the melting point of the base metal. It is achieved by diffusion without fusion (melting) of the base Brazing can be classified as Torch brazing Dip brazing Furnace brazing Induction brazing Brazing : Brazing Advantages & Disadvantages : Advantages & Disadvantages Advantages Dissimilar metals which canot be welded can be joined by brazing Very thin metals can be joined Metals with different thickness can be joined easily In brazing thermal stresses are not produced in the work piece. Hence there is no distortion Using this process, carbides tips are brazed on the steel tool holders Disadvantages Brazed joints have lesser strength compared to welding Joint preparation cost is more Can be used for thin sheet metal sections Soldering : Soldering It is a low temperature joining process. It is performed at temperatures below 840ºF for joining. Soldering is used for, Sealing, as in automotive radiators or tin cans Electrical Connections Joining thermally sensitive components Joining dissimilar metals You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
