CS weld repair - FCAW

CS weld repair - FCAW

What is the guidance we performing a weld metal build up of CS on CS with FCAW. The current thickness is around an inch, however, with the higher heat input of FWCA distortion might be a concern.

RE: CS weld repair - FCAW

I've used FCAW in similar repairs in the past and did not experience undue distortion. I have no way of telling whether it will work for you. I have used FCAW to make welds where distortion had to be minimized and with proper technique and supervision of welders, I was always able to meet the goals.

RE: CS weld repair - FCAW

Heat input is 100% dependent upon the user and the WPS. It is not based upon the process.

Distortion minimization techniques should include welding sequencing along with clamping and cool down times.

The devil is in the details; she also wears prada.
