REPORT SCOPE

INTRODUCTION

Welding, the fusing of the surfaces of two workpieces is a precise, reliable and cost-effective method for joining materials. No other technique is as widely used by manufacturers to join metals and alloys efficiently and to add value to their products. Welding is used as a fabrication process in every industry large or small and is a principal means of fabricating and repairing metal products. The process is an efficient, economical and dependable means of joining metals. Welding has been used in space. The process also finds applications in air and underwater. Most of the familiar objects in modern society, from buildings and bridges, to vehicles, computers, and medical devices, could not be produced without the use of welding. Welding goes well beyond the bounds of its simple description. Welding today is applied to a wide variety of materials and products, using such advanced technologies as lasers and plasma arcs. The future of welding holds even greater promise as methods are devised for joining dissimilar and nonmetallic materials, and for creating products of innovative shapes and designs.

The welding industry consists of the users of welding techniques as well as the companies and other organizations that provide the equipment, materials, processes, and support services for welding. The true impact of welding on the metalworking industry can be gauged by the total value of the parts produced by welding; the money saved by using welding over other metal fabrication processes such as soldering, brazing, and so forth; and the value of products made possible by welding.

Welding finds application in the automobile industry, and in the construction of buildings; bridges; ships; submarines; pressure vessels; offshore structures; storage tanks; oil, gas and water pipelines; girders; press frames; and water turbines. A major contribution that welding has made to society is the manufacture of household products such as refrigerators, kitchen cabinets, dishwashers, and other similar products.

The various welding technologies available allow a great deal of flexibility in the design of the components to be welded. Welding and joining technologies are pervasive in commercial and defense manufacturing, and are a significant value-added source in the manufacturing process. The role of welding and joining in the repair and life extension of manufactured products is even more critical since these processes are frequently used to repair structures and components that were not originally welded.

STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVES

The welding industry constitutes the workforce that uses welding technologies to perform welding operations; the welding supply industry that provides the equipment, products, consumables, and services needed by the workforce; and the end users in the larger national and international industrial sector who rely on welding and joining processes to manufacture their products. This report concentrates on the manufacturers and end users of various types of welding equipment and consumables.

Machinery, filler materials, and accessories for the various welding processes are manufactured and supplied by a few large companies whose sales exceed $100 million. Several hundred much smaller companies specialize in items such as welding torches, welders' helmets, hammers, marking equipment, welding screens, special fluxes, and so forth.

The value of shipments at the manufacturing level fluctuates with the volume of metals consumed in the global industry, and there have been pronounced upward and downward movements in these figures over the years. This report will discuss the sales figures of major manufacturers, their respective positions in the market, competition involved in the field, and the future outlook for these companies. The report will concentrate on the various types of welding applications in various industries and the future prospects of these welding technologies in these industries, considering the fact that new technologies and methods are being introduced in the market at a very fast rate.

Manufacturers have requirements in at least three areas: meeting the changing demands of their customers, competing with other manufacturers, and complying with government regulations. This means they continually concentrate on developing a new generation of improved, high-value-added products. Joining technologies that have evolved to meet new industrial needs include specific arc welding techniques for the shipbuilding, aerospace, and oil and gas industries, and advanced resistance welding, which has been driven by the automotive and appliance industries. This report will concentrate on the research and development by various manufacturers toward improving welding technologies and relevant consumables. The report will also discuss the technology life-cycle costs of various technologies involved as well as the product life cycle of equipment and consumables involved in the processes.

Materials of the future will be designed to be capable of welding as part of the total integration of welding into the manufacturing cycle. The materials must be energy-efficient, environmentally benign, and help reprocessing at any point in the life cycle of the component. Welding technologies will be developed along with these new materials so that practical fabrication methods are available for all engineering applications.

Other areas in need of further research are the joining of dissimilar materials by welding, polymer joining by welding, and joining of coated high-strength steels. This report will evaluate foreseeable future developments in the above fields and the research and development programs of various manufacturers and organizations in this regard.
