• OxyFuel Welding Steel OxyFuel Welding Steel The term “steel” may be applied to many ferrous metals which differ greatly in both chemical and physical properties. In general, they may be divided into plain carbon and alloy groups. By following the proper procedures, most steels can be successfully welded. However, parts fabricated by welding... Read more >>
  • OxyFuel Backhand Welding In the OxyFuel backhand welding method, the torch precedes the welding rod, as shown in figure 11-5. The torch is held at approximately a 45 degree angle from the vertical away from the direction of welding, with the flame directed at the molten puddle. The welding rod is between the... Read more >>
  • Oxy-Fuel Welding : Vertical Position Oxy-fuel welding in the vertical position requires a technique in order to keep the molten metal from running downward. In vertical position welding, the axis of the weld is approximately vertical. When welding is done on a vertical surface, the molten metal has a tendency to run downward and pile up. A...
