Welding Overview


During 2010 - 2011 I was working as quality manager on a refinery project in Thessaloniki. On a daily basis I had to deal with hundreds pipe welds, as well as with its discontinuities. Since I had no previous experience from the particular field, I had to learn quick a lot of new stuff. Fortunately, I found a lot of useful information on the internet and my colleagues also help me to adapt to the new environment. In order to remember some main points regarding welding I have prepared a presentation (37 slides) in which I include some basic information.

The presentation is divided into six parts:
  • Common welding processes (focusing on SMAW, GMAW and GTAW)
  • Joint configuration
  • Welding symbols
  • Welding terminology
  • Welder related and
  • Welding safety
You shouldn't expect a very deep analysis. However, the main points I believe that are outlined sufficiently.
