WPS for Stainless Steel Sheet Metal

WPS for Stainless Steel Sheet Metal

WPS for Stainless Steel Sheet Metal

I am trying to see if anyone can guide me in the right direction in regards to AWS standards. I am looking to see if there is any WPS for spot, stud, and weld neck welding. Anything helps! Thanks in advance.

RE: WPS for Stainless Steel Sheet Metal

If your application is structural, you'll want to work out of AWS D1.6.
If your material is true sheet (< ~1/4") and not structural (architectural, HVAC, etc) you might try AWS D1.9 which is base-metal agnostic and covers all kinds of welds.

RE: WPS for Stainless Steel Sheet Metal

D1.9 is for structural titanium.

Material is 18ga. I do not believe it is structural if it is for an enclosure.

Please forgive the lack of information, I am new to this industry so it will take me a while to get used to it.

RE: WPS for Stainless Steel Sheet Metal

Sorry gtaw, I meant D9.1, not 1.9.

RE: WPS for Stainless Steel Sheet Metal

Thank you for the input guys. As soon as I can get my hands on this then I can post an update. I appreciate the help!
