WELD Meaning and Definition

  1. Weld is a verb that refers to the process of joining two or more pieces of metal together by applying heat and pressure or by melting a filler material, forming a strong and permanent bond. It is a fundamental technique commonly used in metalworking and construction industries.

    The process of welding involves creating a localized intense heat that causes the metals to reach their melting point, often by using an electric arc or a gas flame. The molten metals then fuse together, and upon cooling, a solid, continuous joint is formed, providing strength and structural integrity to the previously separate pieces.

    Welding can be done using different methods, depending on the specific requirements of the project. It includes techniques such as arc welding, oxy-fuel welding, and spot welding, among others. Each method utilizes various equipment and processes, but all aim to achieve a secure and durable bond between the metals being joined.

    Welding finds extensive application in various industries, such as manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, and shipbuilding. It is essential for constructing metal structures, fabricating metal parts, repairing machinery or structures, and even artistic metalwork.

    Skill in welding requires knowledge of different welding techniques and the ability to interpret welding symbols and specifications. Safety precautions, including the use of protective gear and proper ventilation, are crucial due to the intense heat, bright light, and potential release of harmful fumes or sparks associated with the process.

  2. • To hammer together into one body when heated almost to melting, as two pieces of iron.
    • A plant used by dyers to give cloth a yellow colour.

Etymology of WELD

The word "weld" traces back to the Old English term wealdan, which means "to govern, control". In Middle English, the term evolved to welde, meaning "to wield or control" with the introduction of a "d" sound. Over time, the meaning of the word shifted specifically to the act of joining or controlling materials together by heating and hammering. Thus, the modern sense of "weld" as a verb referring to the process of joining metal or thermoplastic materials was derived.
