AWS ARE-04

AWS ARE-4 WELDING METALLURGY

Although metallurgy is a standard subject in general engineering. it doesnt provide the information that welding engineers need. This helpful chapter from the Welding Handbook. 9th Ed.. Vol. 1. starts with coverage of physical metallurgy. serving as a solid refresher or a clear introduction. Reviews alloys. phase transformations. phase diagrams. effects of deformation and heat treatment. cold working. austenitization caused by welding. weldability of commercial alloys. and corrosion in welds and brazed or soldered joints. Impressive bibliography and supplementary reading list.


AWS ARE-05

AWS ARE-5 DESIGN FOR WELDING

Designers of weldments must understand basic design principles and concepts. This full chapter from the Welding Handbook. 9th Ed.. Vol. 1. consolidates expert information from authorities such as AWS. AA. AISC. API. ASCE. ASTM. and ASME. Topics include mechanical and physical properties. program for welding design. decision factors. design of welded joints. selection of weld type. sizing of steel welds. tubular connections. and aluminum structures.


AWS ARE-6-all

AWS ARE-6 TEST METHODS FOR EVALUATING WELDED JOINTS

When selecting a test method. consider the tests purpose and weigh it against time and cost. This complete chapter from the Welding Handbook. 9th Ed.. Vol. 1. examines the methods available to evaluate the performance of welded and brazed joints and thermal spray applications. Engineers must design welded joints to meet the mechanical and physical properties required by the service application and environment. An excellent explanation of when to use what test method. this publication is an essential companion to AWS B4.0. Standard Methods for Mechanical Testing of Welds. which tells you how to conduct the tests.


AWS ARE-10-all

AWS ARE-10 MONITORING AND CONTROL OF WELDING AND JOINING PROCESSES

Demands for increased productivity and improved quality have been the impetus for realtime process monitoring and control. While a process monitor can be used to compare the output of the sensor to predefined parameter limits. process control goes a step beyond process monitoring by adjusting the welding process automatically. This chapter from the Welding Handbook. 9th Ed.. Vol. 1. discusses principles behind process sensing. monitoring. and control and describes the application of sensors. monitors. and process controls in sections covering the arc. resistance. laser beam. electron beam. friction welding. and brazing processes.


AWS ARE-11

AWS ARE-11 MECHANIZED. AUTOMATED AND ROBOTIC WELDING

A non-commercial look at the efficiencies of mechanized. automated. and robotic welding. this chapter from the Welding Handbook. Ninth Edition. Volume 1. was written by experts from some of the most successful welding equipment manufacturers and users: Tower Automotive. ABB Flexible Welding Control. KOHOL Systems. Fanuc Robotics-North America. Trek Bicycle Corp.. Johnson Controls. Detroit Center Tool. Panasonic Factory Automation. and The Lincoln Electric Co. Covers system components and operating characteristics for arc and resistance welding. Includes section on ôPlanning for Automated and Robotic Weldingö with emphasis on integration and a sample Gantt chart installation schedule
