19. What are the types of welding rods?

Low carbon steel rod, mild steel rod, vanadium steel rod.

20. List the spot welding methods.

Direct, indirect, push pulls method.

application of resistance spot welding
application of resistance spot welding

21. What is seam welding?

It is the resistance welding process. The heat is produced due to resistance against current. It is also called stitch welding.

22. Define – Electro slag welding.

It is the welding process in which metal fused together by molten slag which melt the filler material and surface of the work to be welded.

23. What are the advantages of AC arc welding?

1. The transformer maintenance cost is less.
2. Efficiency is very high.
3. The power available is very less.

24. What is submerged arc welding?

The arc is produced between the electrode and the work piece. The arc, end of electrode, the molten pool is submerged in the molten pool.

25. What is the use of inert gases in TIG welding?

It is used to avoid atmospheric contamination of the weld pool. The gases used in the welding process are argon helium hydrogen.

26. What is the difference between TIG and MIG welding?

There is no filler material used in the MIG welding instead OF filler material some inert gases are used.

27. What are the equipments used in the TIG welding?

1. Electrode, filler material, FLUX
2. Welding power source
3. Inert gas cylinder
4. Pressure regulator.

28. What is the use of wire feed mechanism in MIG welding?

It is used to deliver electrode to the constant or varying speed.

29. List the types of arc used in the plasma arc welding?

1. Transferred arc
2. Non transferred arc.

30. What is Thermit welding?

It is the welding process employing chemical energy is used to produce high temperature.

31. What are the equipments used in Thermit welding?

1. Crucible
2. Mould
3. Supporting structure.

32. What is the principal of Electron beam welding?

The heat is generated from the kinetic energy of intense beam of high velocity electron.

33. What are the types of weld defects?

1. Dimensional defects – Warpage, incorrect joint preparation, size and profile.
2. Structural defects – porosity, non metallic inclusion, incomplete fusion, inadequate penetration.
3. Defective properties – low strength, toughness.

32. What is slag inclusion?

It is a defect in the welding process in which failure to remove the slag after each layer in a multilayer in the welding operation lead to slag inclusion.

33. What is the principle crack in the welding?

1. Hot cracking – It occurs at high temperature just below freezing point. Excessive sulpher and carbon content in promotes the cracking.
2. Cold cracking – It occurs at room temperature. It occurs due to change in volume at weld cool.

34. List the method involve in soldering.

2. Furnace and hot plate method
3. Soldering iron method
4. Induction method.

35. What is soldering?

Soldering is the metal joining process with the help of the low melting point metal by the use of filler material and heat. The melting point of filler metal is below 427°C.

36. What is brazing?

Brazing may be defined as the technique of joining two similar or dissimilar materials by the addition of filler material whose melting point is above 427°C.
