How Underwater Welding Is Performed

Underwater welding is a process that is primarily used to make repairs on ships, pipelines and offshore oil platforms.  Welding techniques are hazardous when performed on dry land, adding water only increases the amount of risk the welder experiences every time they dive.  There are

How to Read Welding Blueprints

Architects and drafters commonly include welding instructions in their designs.  This ensures that the welder will know exactly how the architect wanted the welding to be performed.  These instructions often include which type of weld to be used, the size of the weld, how many

The Process of Ultrasonic Welding

Ultrasonic welding is an industrial welding process that uses high-frequency ultrasonic acoustic vibrations which are locally applied to the pieces being joined.  The pieces that are being welded together are typically held in place using pressure which creates a solid state weld.  This welding technique
