Welding of Stainless Steels and Other Joining Methods

Designer Handbook

The purpose of this booklet is to help designers and
manufacturing engineers achieve a better understanding of the welding characteristics of stainless steels, so they may exercise better control over the finished products with respect to welding. In addition to welding, other ancillary joining
methods are discussed, including soldering and brazing.
