For most people, the very mention of the word welding brings to his/her mind the image of a person wrapped in mysterious looking clothes, with a protective shield on his face, and holding a hot rod emitting light and heat. Well, this is true to date, and this most basic form of electric welding is still used in smaller works. But in most of the industries welding is just not the same.
There are so many types of welding that it is not possible to describe every type in detail in a single article, but still I will try to paint a vivid picture of the latest trends. Firstly where do you think will you find the latest technology out of these locations – a small workshop, a DIY amateur welder, or in the aerospace industry? Well, I am sure this question does not require much thought to answer.
Since machinery such as aircraft, helicopters, submarines, and spacecraft are the ones which require the most sophisticated technology, one would certainly expect to find the latest techniques and technology in these sectors.
