CLASSIFICATION OF WELDING AND ALLIED PROCESSES

ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF WELDING

There are different welding, brazing and soldering methods are being used in industries today. There are various ways of classifying the welding and allied processes. For example, they may be classified on the basis of source of heat, i.e., blacksmith fire, flame, arc, etc. and the type of interaction i.e., liquid / liquid (fusion welding) or solid/solid (solid state welding). Welding processes may also be classified in two categories namely plastic (forge) and fusion. However, the general classification of welding and allied processes is given as under
