This chapter introduces the conventional and more widely known joining, cutting, and thermal spraying processes. The distinguishing features of the various processes are summarized and compared to one another. Among the joining processes reviewed are the arc, resistance, and solid-state welding processes as well as brazing, soldering, and adhesive bonding. The cutting processes examined include thermal and nonthermal methods. The thermal spraying processes considered include flame and plasma arc spraying as well as arc and detonation flame spraying. With respect to process selection, as several processes may be applicable for a particular job, the challenge lies in selecting the process that is most suitable in terms of fitness for service and cost.
As this chapter is intended to serve merely as a survey of the most common joining, cutting, and thermal spraying processes,1 the reader is encouraged to conduct a thorough investigation of the processes that appear to have the best potential for the intended applications. Additional sources of information about the joining, cutting, and allied processes are listed in the Bibliography and Supplementary Reading List at the end of this chapter.
For further information on the categorization of the welding, joining, cutting, and allied processes, see Appendix A.
At the time of the preparation of this chapter, the referenced codes and other standards were valid. If a code or other standard is cited without a date of publication, it is understood that the latest edition of the document referred to applies. If a code or other standard is cited with the date of publication, the citation refers to that edition only, and it is understood that any future revisions or amendments to the code or standard are not included; however, as codes and standards undergo frequent revision, the reader is encouraged to consult the most recent edition.
The goal of the joining processes is to cause diverse pieces of material to become a unified whole. In the case of two pieces of metal, when the atoms at the edge of one piece come close enough to the atoms at the edge of another piece for interatomic attraction to develop, the two pieces become one. Although this concept is easy to describe, it is not simple to effect.
Surface roughness, impurities, fitting imperfections, and the varied properties of the materials being joined complicate the joining process. Welding processes and procedures have been developed to overcome these difficulties by incorporating the use of heat or pressure, or both.
Though portions of this description do not apply to brazing, soldering, and adhesive bonding, an explanation will be given when these processes are described later in the chapter. Barring a few exceptions, most welding processes apply significant heat to the base material.
This heat is only a means to bring the atoms at the edge of one piece of material close enough to the atoms of another piece for interatomic attraction. However, this heat is detrimental to the microstructure of the materials being joined. As hot metal tends to oxidize, sufficient protection from oxidation must be provided by the welding process to prevent this detrimental reaction with ambient oxygen. Some metals are far more sensitive than others, in which case protection from oxidation becomes more demanding.
Thus, while examining each welding process, the reader should consider whether heat is produced by the process and, if so, the manner in which it is produced. The means by which sufficient protection against oxidation is provided by the process should then be identified. American Welding Society. Safety in Welding.
