sandvik welding handbook

Sandvik Welding Handbook is a unique piece of writing. It provides up to date information on the applications and working principles of existing welding processes. The author, Berthold Lundqvist, explains the transformation of soldering, forging and brazing techniques into modern welding processes. The blacksmiths used to employ these processes in their primitive ways of fusing and making things. A new chapter in the history of welding started before the end of the 19th century due to discoveries and fundamental inventions. Further, the author says, the book can serve as a guide for the solution of practical problems in the welding industry. The handbook can be used for educational purposes as well.
