AWS Releases New Steel-Welding Specs

AWS Releases New Steel-Welding Specs

Thursday, October 17, 2002
 
The American Welding Society (AWS) has issued 13 revised Standard Welding Procedure Specifications (SWPS) for welding 10- through 18-gauge galvanized steel, carbon steel and austenitic stainless steel sheetmetal, in the as-welded condition, with or without backing. They outline variables for welding steel using semiautomatic gas-metal-arc welding, shielded-metal-arc welding or manual gas-tungsten welding. Also included are operating conditions necessary to fabricate the weldment. Each specification, 12 pages long, costs $180 for AWS members and $240 for nonmembers. To see a list of the new specifications or to order, visit www.aws.org.
