Distortion control is not an exact science, and optimum results are obtained by trial and error, which can prove costly.
TWI’s welding engineer have experience in all major industry sectors and are supported by our design and structural engineers in finding solution to minimise distortion.
TWI’s expert advice can help predict and prevent distortion, hence minimising the time needed to develop appropriate welding procedures.
Mechanised techniques combining high deposition rates and high welding speeds have the greatest potential for preventing distortion. As the distortion is more consistent, simple techniques such as presetting are more effective in controlling angular distortion.
