What is Welding?

What is Welding?

Welding is a process in which two or more metal, thermoplastic, or wood parts are attached to one another through the application of heat, pressure, or both. With some materials, a special process may be required in order to weld the components to become a parent component. Welding results in “fusion” bonds, different from those made from brazing and soldering, which do not melt the base metal.
