High Strength Steels: optimizing mechanical & impact properties

High strength steels continue to be popular for fabrication and manufacturing applications that require materials with less weight and thinner sections — without sacrificing strength. These include the building of cranes, Offshore Jack-up legs, heavy equipment, pressure vessels, bridges and more…

P 52T – The Red Tack Welding

Tack welding not only holds the assembled components in place and establishes their mutual location but also ensures their alignment.

Factors for Selecting the Right Stick Electrode

Stick welding is a skill that takes much practice to master, and selecting the correct electrode for the job can be equally challenging. Stick electrodes are available in a wide range of types, each of which provides different mechanical properties and operates with a specific type of welding power source…

Stainless steels in Cryogenic Applications

The most important material property is good toughness at low temperatures. Weld metal properties are often the limiting factor…

Types and properties of stainless steels

Welding of stainless steel requires knowledge about the material as well as welding methods and products to maintain the material’s stainless properties.

Structure of Stainless Steels

Stainless steel is not a specific material, but a common term for a group of corrosion-resistant steel types. Stainless steels are steels which normally have a chromium content of at least 10.5%.
