This book has been edited, revised and expanded by The Aluminum Association and by member companies represented on the Aluminum Association's Technical Committee - Welding and Joining: AlcoTec Wire Corp., Lincoln Electric Co., ALCAN Intl. Ltd., Reynolds Metals, and ALCOA.
Covers properties, alloy and temper designations, metallurgy, metal preparation, health and safety, weld performance, weld quality, joint designs for welding and brazing, filler metal charts.
Specific welding/joining processes covered: Mig, TIG, Stick Arc, Stud, CD, Plasma and Plasma MIG, Arc-spot, Shielded Metal Arc, Oxygas, Electrogas, Electroslag, Electron Beam, Laser, Thermit, Resistance Spot, Roll Spot, Upset, Flash, HF Resistance, Explosion, Ultrasonic, Diffusion, Pressure (cold and hot), Friction, Brazing (Torch, Furnace, Induction, Dip, Vacuum), etc.... (The information we offer in our booklet on Aluminum Gas Welding is a little more comprehensive and detailed on that topic alone, but only because Kent buttonholed the authors of this big book for specific information and sources for that frequently-overlooked process.)
The best things are very often quietly tucked away from popular view. If you are serious about welding aluminum, and want only the best, most reliable information, this is the only book to buy (unless you are going to oxy-acetelyne weld).
Kent has met and spoken to each of the men who wrote this book, and they are tops in their fields: Bernie Altshuller, Paul Dickerson, Frank Armao, Eric Pickering, and Peter Pollack. A.J. Johnson should be included here as well; his expertise should not be overlooked.
“This is the finest, most accurate book on welding aluminum on the market today, bar none, even if you have never heard of it before.” - Kent
