Description
Welding Print Reading is a write-in text that teaches the symbols and notations students need to understand to be successful. Besides aspiring welders who want to learn to interpret prints and drawings, the content is appropriate for students wanting to pursue careers in engineering and drafting. The text starts by reviewing the basics, including welding processes, and then progresses to more specialized topics, such as prints for pipe welding and brazed joints.
  • In addition to adhering to the most recent AWS and ANSI standards, the text also exposes students to actual industry prints that may contain variations, creating a realistic experience.
  • Additional prints and questions are included in an end-of-text unit to provide students with more practice opportunities.
  • Measurement and math reviews at the beginning of the text prepare students for the calculations they will need to be successful in class and on the job.
