Cold and hot cracking in welded joints and avoid them: Basic inspection techniques avoid training in the HDT Berlin on the 17th February 2014 technically reliable and economic components can be produced frequently just as a welded construction. For the safety of these components already during the welding production (hot tear) as also delayed (cold crack) can happen can already while steels extensive cracking measures of welding processing. This must be clarified among others following questions: why does any hot cracking during welding and what countermeasures can be taken? What test techniques of cold – and hot crack security are there on the market? The date for the training seminar of cold and hot cracking in welded joints and their prevention”is the 17th February 2014 in Berlin (House of technology e.V. at the Alexanderplatz), followed by another at September 16 at the same location. Basics and detailed knowledge of the welding processing of modern steels are taught practical training participants.
The seminar informed them about the possible crack phenomena and causes. This applies to the individual factors of cold cracking and on the other the essential causes of hot cracking. An overview of the different testing methods for the identification and evaluation of cold – and hot cracking completes the expertise for the effective prevention of cracking measures.
