Crucial Connections - Welding Wire

Welding, the process in which two metals are strongly joined, is an essential part of countless industries. Using a strong and durable welding wire is vital to this process and can make the difference between structural success and failure.

Forge welding, accomplished by heating and hammering, existed from as early as the Bronze Age. This process remained relatively unchanged for millennia and it was not until the end of the 19th century that other methods, such as arc and oxyfuel welding, began to develop. Electric resistance welding was developed just in time to be used in various applications during World War I which, along with World War II some years later, increased demand for the provision of low-cost, reliable metal joining methods. By the time World War II had ended, a variety of new welding techniques had been extensively developed.
