process monitoring was initially introduced for welding beams with fixed optics.
It provides an excellent shielding of the molten weld
pool and also has a large influence on the proper arc ignition and relevant arc stability.
Sometimes, in-process weld
rework is limited or must be documented for the purposes of assuring surface and internal integrity correlating directly to the design intent for cyclic life, but with AMS 2175, this is an unnecessary "belt-plus-suspenders" precaution.

Good power supplies that offer enough amperage to weld
thick metal are expensive and the inert gas (usually Argon) that is required adds expense and inconvenience.
Ultrasonic welding joins the metal parts by applying the high frequency vibratory energy and moderate clamping pressure onto the interface area between the parts to be welded
. Since 1950s, it has been used in the manufacture of electronics, food packaging, electrical appliances, high-quality component sealants.
For comparison, finite element analyses were carried out in order to obtain the computational stress intensity factor solutions for the idealized weld
. A schematic of a two-dimensional finite element model of a weld
with idealized weld
geometry is shown in Figure 2(b).
A difference of about 300 MPa occurred in the analysis when less than half of the total number of weld
passes is grouped in the weld
As considering the results of the weld
strength of the nanoparticle reinforced POM, different results were observed compared with those from literatures about the vibration welding of nanocomposites.
When the gas flow rate was below 5 L/min, the weld
metal became oxidized and the protection effect was bad; when it was over 10 L/min, the surface of weld
appeared silvery white and the protective effectiveness was very good.
George Karr, a welding and technology instructor at Hollenstein Career and Tech Center in Fort Worth, Texas says, "teach WELD
has decreased our consumable and welding costs by about 70 percent for our program." This program has not only seen costs decrease by using this training tool, but has also seen students' technique and welding ability increase, allowing them to become proficient more quickly.
Repair by welding involving removal of defective areas and replacement by sound material can cost up to 10 times as much as depositing similar quantities of weld
metal correctly in the first place, however, repair welding of a part is the most economical way in comparison with replacement of that part, especially in a complex structure.
