JOINING & ASSEMBLY PROCESSESFUNDAMENTALS OF WELDING
- welding, brazing, soldering, and adhesive bondingto form a permanent joint between parts
- mechanical methods (usually) of fastening parts together Some of these methods allow for easy disassembly.
– A joining process of two materials thatcoalesced at their contacting (faying) surfaces by theapplication of pressure and/or heat. – Weldment – The assemblage – Sometime a filler material to facilitate coalescence.•
: portable, permanent, stronger than theparent materials with a filler metal, the mosteconomical method to join in terms of material usageand fabrication costs .•
: Expensive manual Labor, highenergy and dangerous, does not allow disassembleand defects
