Important Welding Definitions
Jul 26, 2016
  • Welding is a process that produces coalescence of materials by heating them to the welding temperature, with or without the application of pressure or by the application of pressure alone, and with or without the use of filler metal. Welding occurs when the temperature exceeds the melting temperature of the base metals.

  • Brazing is a group of joining processes that use a filler metal with a liquidus above 450°C (840°F) and below the solidus of the base material. When brazing, the base material is not melted.

  • Soldering is a group of joining processes that produces joining of base materials by heating to the soldering temperature and using a filler metal with a liquidus not exceeding 450°C (840°F) and below the solidus of the base materials. When soldering, the base material is not melted.

  • Manage to direct business. Manage things, lead people.

  • Management is a collective body of those who direct a business enterprise.

  • Welding Management addresses the application of knowledge in science, mathematics, physics, chemistry, metallurgy, and people in a business enterprise.

  • Welding Management directs commercial, welding business choices for quality, cost, throughput and safety.
