7 Ways To Control Distortion in Welding

Distortion is a nasty problem we experience in welding.  Understanding what causes distortion is important in order to be able to minimize or eliminate it completely.  There are physical and mechanical properties that affect distortion susceptibility of materials.  To learn more about this you can read 4 Material Properties That Affect Distortion. As fabricators we hardly […]

4 Material Properties That Affect Distortion

Welding can present many challenges, a common one being distortion.  The Procedure Handbook of Arc Welding defines distortion in a weldment as the result of the non-uniform expansion and contraction of the weld metal and adjacent weld metal during the heating and cooling cycle of the welding process.  It is extremely difficult to predict distortion […]
