DECREASING THE COSTS IN HEAVY FABRICATION

With manual arc welding the cost per pound of deposit is the important factor. Cost per pound goes down as electrode diameter and welding amperage go up. With submerged arc welding, deposition rate was increased by 15% by decreasing specified wire diameter and using d.c. positive. Semiautomatic welding offers the advantages of higher duty cycles, high deposition, high current capacity.
