Workshop on Welding & Brazing in Pune & Chennai


5 - 6 October 2015
9 - 10 October 2015


The automotive industry is in a new era of greater to sustain its leadership and to sustain growth and capacity management. There is a need to adapt to the changing environment. As the market demands superior performance, higher speed, low fuel consumption, more comfort, more safety and improved aesthetics, designers are looking for new lighter materials with better weight to strength ratios with ease to fabricate. The automotive manufacturers have started to use thinner grades of various Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS), Ultra High Strength Steel (UHSS) grades, Dual Phase (DP) steels, TRIP (Transformation Induced Plasticity) steel and so on. HSLA (High Strength Low Alloy) steel offers a combination of high strength and good weldability.
Besides, changes in the auto body structure design are also promising; typical examples of such promising measures are the use of tailored blank (TB) and hydro-forming (HF) components. As these efforts advance, the hurdles that welding has to overcome are increasingly higher and new technologies for joining them are being developed. Both car weight reduction and enhanced collision safety can only be achieved through improved reliability of weld joints, by optimising the chemistry and metallographic structure of high strength sheets and developing new welding processes (power supply and work methods). Welding methods for automotive industry must be able to achieve high production rates, provide superior quality weldments, be easily mechanised with short set-up times, have the flexibility to accommodate design changes and maintain acceptable working environment standards. The excellent physical material characteristics of these latest generation steels are derived from heat treatment processes. It follows that the steels are more easily affected by heat, hence they cannot be readily MIG welded, and spot welding is possible. Hence, Resistance welding and MIG brazing are gaining momentum as candidate processes for joining thin sheets. The trends in welding technology both in the existing and new processes that are gaining entry into production of automotive industry are to be taken to production shops for achieving sustained quality and enhanced productivity, especially in the context of India, where almost all automotive manufacturers in the world have set their base. The workshop is intended to serve this purpose of taking the technologies to the shop floors effectively.

Almost all variants of Resistance Welding (RW) processes are widely used in the high-volume manufacture of sheet metal products and the automotive industry has relied on RW as a principal joining method for many decades. A typical car contains at least 2000 to 3000 Resistance Spot Welds (RSW). The advantages of RSW in high volume automotive manufacturing include less expense (per-weld cost), speedy process (< 1 second per weld), easy automation (flexible process), no per-weld consumables (i.e. no issues of piece-cost, inventory, additional weight or recycling difficulties) and low training costs (as in manual operations).
In the recent past, a host of developments are taking place in the RW processes viz., MFDC, Robotic RW, Deformation RW, Modified Projection Welding, to name a few. The use of robotic spot welding is increasingly being used in automotive industry extensively. The speed, precision, efficiency, and the resulting cost reductions afforded by automated resistance spot welding are well documented and accepted, particularly in the automotive industry. However, industry requires that even the most mature solutions continue to evolve. Robotic welding plays a key role in enabling car companies to keep pace with demand for new, more technologically advanced, higher quality products. Automakers are looking for robots with greater repeatability and weld requirements down to ± 2 mm.
As the demands on spot welding applications increase during the manufacture of automobiles, end-users exploring all of the new technologies to help make better products for their customers. Advancements in both AC and DC (inverter-type) weld controllers and the coming of servo gun technology will all help expand welding applications for difficult materials, such as thin or exotic metals. These new technologies are much more capable of dealing with those materials.
The use of single-source control for multiple robots is also emerging. Capabilities have been developed to control up to four robots from a single controller and teach pendant. This lets the robots work closely together without concerns about them colliding. It also provides a safer work environment with all robots under the sole control of a single pendant.
The concept of using a robot to manipulate parts for pedestal-type welding machines has been widely used by many of the Japanese automotive parts suppliers. Once a part is tack welded in a fixture, it can be "passed" between stations by multiple robots.
Resistance spot welding systems which are based on medium-frequency inverters are recently gaining in importance and are being used for welding of steel sheets. The energy can be effectively utilized for spot welds at lower current levels with desired nugget size in Medium Frequency Direct Current (MFDC). With the established parameters for weld lobe, current is the most influencing factor in achieving the wider welding window in MFDC. In general, MFDC process saves 20% of the total energy. MFDC can be the adaptive welding technology for welding of thin sheets in RSW process. Medium Frequency Direct Current (MFDC) technique offers automatic load distribution in which 3 phase current drawn from the capacitor that are used in the system and also from the mains, thus reducing the peak current.

Welding Processes of GI sheet Welding is a fabrication or sculptural process that joins materials, usually metals or thermoplastics, by causing fusion, which is distinct from lower temperature metal-joining techniques such as brazing and soldering, which do not melt the base metal. In addition to melting the base metal, a filler material is often added to the joint to form a pool of molten material (the weld pool) that cools to form a joint that can be as strong as the base material. Pressure may also be used in conjunction with heat, or by itself, to produce a weld.
Welding of galvanized steel is done almost exactly the same way as welding of the bare steel of the same composition; the same welding processes, volts, amps, travel speed, etc. can be used with little modification when the switch is made from uncoated steel to galvanized steel - unless the zinc coating is unusually thick.

An extension of the GMA process, GMA braze welding utilises a filler metal with a lower melting point than the parent metal. The joint relies neither on capillary action nor on intentional melting of the parent metal. Shielding gases of argon / oxygen type are the most suitable, the low oxygen level being sufficient to permit excellent edge wash and a flat weld without causing surface oxidation. The low heat input minimises damage to the coating on the underside of the parent plate, enables the corrosion resistant bronze filler to cover any of the coating damaged by the arc, and minimises the level of distortion when welding sheet metal components. Finishing costs of sheet metal components such as automotive panels can therefore be reduced substantially.
Cold Metal Transfer (CMT) is a welding process developed by Fronius Welding, Austria. The process is based upon conventional Dip Transfer MIG welding where material deposition is initiated at the point of short circuit of the wire electrode into the molten weld pool. However, whereas traditional welding processes are controlled electrically CMT employs an innovative wire feed system, integrated to a high speed digital control which controls material transfer and the amount of thermal input to the work piece.
CMT is characterised by an arcing period during which both the work surface and the wire electrode are heated. The molten electrode is then fed forward to make contact with the work surface. At the point of short circuit the welding current is cut practically extinguishing the welding arc and hence limiting the amount of heat transferred to the work piece. After a defined short circuit duration the electrode is mechanically retracted pinching the molten droplet from the end of the electrode. The arc is then re - ignited and the process repeats. This hot cold, arc on arc off cycle is repeated up to 70 times per second depending on welding parameters employed. When compared to conventional MIG welding processes, CMT exhibits a high wire melting coefficient requiring in the region of 20 – 30% less thermal energy for welding. Although suited to a range of welding applications, notably thin aluminium, when considering arc brazing the process offers single sided access, with reduced part distortion - due to low thermal input, minimal weld spatter - greatly reducing the requirement for rework, and good gap bridging capabilities.

WELDING RESEARCH INSTITUTE (WRI), Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (BHEL), and INDIAN WELDING SOCIETY (IWS) are jointly organising this series of two-day Workshops on “RESISTANCE WELDING – EMERGING LEARNING” (REWEEL 15) with the theme Emerging Learning in Thin Sheet Joining – Resistance Welding and MIG Brazing at Pune and Chennai.

This course is designed to provide practitioners, engineers, all levels of management details on the control of corrosion. It is assumed that the participants will be conversant with principles of electrochemistry and the general forms of corrosion, such as crevice, pitting, dealloying and inter-granular corrosion. The course is an educational one in which the participants will be given information which can then be applied to their own specific problems. Due to the wide ranging topic, industry specific guidelines can only be discussed in general terms. However the students will be better prepared to understand why they have corrosion problems and how to approach an industry specific solution.

The course is delivered as a series of 10 - 60 minute modules across two days of instruction, with time between modules for assimilation and discussion of the content. The delivery is highly interactive, and participants are encouraged to ask questions.


This course is designed to help corrosion professionals understand better the root causes of many of the common corrosion problems. The course covers the electrochemistry of corrosion, looking at electrode kinetics and then applies this understanding to specific industry challenges, such as pipelines, corrosion under insulation, splash zone corrosion, sour service and concrete degradation. There are 10 modules in the course, delivered over two days. In each module the problem is described and causes discussed, as well as appropriate mitigation strategies which can be adopted.
Supplementary materials are also provided. It is expected that each student should bring one challenge that they face so that they can work on the development of a solution to their problem.


This course is specifically designed to increase awareness in the control of corrosion for
following personals . Pipeline expertise - Managers, Engineers, Production, Projects & Maintenance, Asset Management, Project Reliability, R&D, EHS, Corrosion Engineers & Specialists, Inspection Engineers & specialists, Operations Engineers, Designers .

Food processing steel, Engineering & Heavy Engineering, Sugar, Automobile Industry.

Corrosion is an never-ending challenge where prevention and control play a vital role. A different approach to corrosion management at the design stage, material control etc can make the job of the
operations corrosion engineer easier. Yet there are challenges well beyond control design life, life extension . Corrosion control, it means prediction and diagnostics, and early corrosion detection is the easiest way to avoid costly material damage and failures.

Here is an analysis corrosion that can account to 60% of all maintenance and repair costs, economic factors must be considered as the most important constraint affecting both prevention and control.
A right strategy adopted with real protection and prevention can definitely be solution to this on going process.

Corrosion is the chemical or electrochemical reaction between materials, usually a metal, and its environment that result in deterioration of the material and its properties. Corrosion is generally initiated when atmospheric moisture (humidity)settels in metals. This moisture will act as a conductor.

Enabling the flow of electrons between high-energy areas (Cathodes) and low-energy areas (anodes) on metal Surfaces.

This electrochemical process results in the visible oxidation referred to as rust (iron, steel) white rust (galvanized steel) and some terms of corrosion are tarnish, pitting, flaking and spalling.


  • No understanding of why their structures fail.
  • More failures.
  • More shutdowns.
  • Losses in expenses leading to a bad reputation.
  • Case studies are many and varied used to illustrate each point in corrosion.
 Day - 1

Module 1
Review of electrochemistry and Evans diagrams
Since corrosion is electrochemical, it is vitally important that students get a good grounding in
the fundamentals. This module is a summary of the material covered in the basic corrosion course, and is primarily a refresher/ introduction to electrode kinetics, primarily the Evans Diagram.

Module 2
Corrosion Measurement Techniques
How is the rate of corrosion determined? There are several techniques, such as the use of coupons
periodic inspection, linear polarization and pigging. These techniques are discussed in detail in this

Module 3
Pipeline Corrosion Control
Pipelines are used extensively and face many different corrosive threats. In this module we
discuss pigging and how to control corrosion, both the internal and external threats, as well as advice
on pipeline design and how to remediate old  pipelines

Module 4
Splash Zone Corrosion
Marine structure shave many corrosive threats, primarily due to immersion service and chlorides,
yet the hardest to control is corrosion in the splash zone. We discuss the causes and remediation
techniques which can control this.
Day 1 Exercises
Illustrative examples and calculations to reinforce the day's activities

Module 5
Acid Gas Corrosion
Some of the most difficult to control corrosion comes from the acid gases, carbon dioxide and
hydrogen sulphide. We look at CO Mesa corrosion 2 as well as the damage hydrogen sulphide can
cause, primarily the cracking of susceptible steels, a review of NACE MR0175 is included in this

Day - 2
Module 6
Concrete Corrosion
Concrete reinforcement bars (rebar) provides tensile strength to concrete structures. However rebar is not immune to corrosion and a major determinant of the life of a concrete rebar structure is the specifications in the design phase. We show how simple corrosion control techniques can dramatically increase the design life of structures.

Module 7
Corrosion Under Insulation
This is a very common problem, and yet once the mechanism is understood, you can make simple
changes to your system which will eliminate the problem completely.

Module 8
Corrosion Inhibitors
One of the simplest ways of increasing asset life is by reducing corrosion rates such that the life of the remaining corrosion allowance in your structure can be dramatically extended. Inhibitors make this possible. In this module we discuss what inhibitors are, how they work and how you can implement them to your system

Module 9
Cathodic protection
You can spend weeks understanding how cathodic protection works. In this module we discuss the
principles of how it works, as well as looking at the common problems it can cause.

Module 10
It is estimated that 70% of the cost of corrosion is due to the costs associated with applying protective
coatings. In this module we discuss the different types of coatings, how coatings work and most
importantly how to ensure effective coatings systems.
