weld process control book provides in-depth weld data on setting traditional,
optimum Manual MIG and " Gas Shielded Flux Cored"
No more "playing around" with the MIG
and flux cored weld data. MIG and flux cored manual weld parameter selection is
made simple with Ed's unique "Weld Clock Control Method". The weld data
provided applies for all manual carbon steels, low alloy steels and stainless
provided flux cored training (using the easy to remember clock
for Canada's largest Oil / pipe line company and several ship yards.
I am a welder living and working in Australia. I found your web site
and am very interested in your books. "Manual "Gas Metal Arc & Flux
Cored Welding Parameters". I am currently undertaking a diploma course in
welding technology and while I can learn untold amounts about welding theory and
how the materials change etc., I have yet to find any instructor
or welder in the industry that knows how to simply set up a GMAW machine properly.
Most people I have met just play around with with their MIG or flux cored
weld settings and focus on the skills required. For many weld personnel, if the
weld looks good, that's enough, however it's not good enough for me. I want to
know the optimum weld settings for any application and I certainly don't want
to play around with weld controls.
I C Ormrod
and Flux Cored are the two most utilized weld processes, yet, for over 30 years,
lack of focus on process control training has retarded the growth of these two
important weld processes and contributed to a global industry in which too many
weld personnel "play around" with their weld controls. The general lack
of process expertise and extensive reliance on sales advice, daily impacts both
MIG and flux cored weld quality and costs. Unnecessary poor weld quality, unnecessary
weld rework, unnecessary low weld deposition rates, a general lack of understanding
of real world weld costs and the purchase of incorrect weld equipment and consumables
are common in many weld shops.
