Welding Terms and Welder Terminology

Tuesday, February 2, 2010
Welder World has just released a new section of their website that has all of the most common Terminology associated with Welding, Welders, and the various types of Welding. This is part of a new community website that is all about the Welding Terms and definitions. Members and non-members can visit this Welding Terminology page on the Welder World website for free at: http://www.welderworld.com/.

Here is an excerpt from the new Welding Terminology information webpage:

“BACK FIRE -- this is the popping sound that you hear when you turn on the acetylene torch when you connect it with fire. It is created because the flame turns back into the tip for a moment and then comes back out of the torch as a flame.

BACKHAND WELDING -- this is a special welding technique where you point the flame at the weld that is already completed.

BACKING STRIP -- this is a strip of material that you will use when you need to keep metal that is melted at the bottom of the weld. You may also use this strip to add strength to the thermal load of a joint so you can stop the base of the metal from warping too much.

BASE METAL -- this is what you call the metal that you are going to weld or that you are going to cut. If this is an alloy, it will be the metal that you have in the highest amount.

BRAZING -- this is actually several welding processes. You will use this when you have a groove, fillet, lap or flange joint that you need to bond. This will require a nonferrous filler metal that has a melting point higher than 800 degrees F (427 degrees C) but less then your base metals. Then, the filler metal will be distributed throughout the joint using capillary attraction.

DIRECT CURRENT (DC) -- a current that only flows in one direction -- forward.
- Flows in one direction and does not reverse its direction of flow.”

There is plenty of more information on the new Terminology of Welding website that can be found by visiting: http://www.welderworld.com/. There is also a special going on now that allows members to gain access to free ebooks and other free materials just for signing up as a member of the welding website for free at: http://www.welderworld.com/ Users should check back often to the Welding general page as more information will be added as the website expands and grows.
