CHANTILLY, Va. - The Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors' National Association (SMACNA) has announced that the newly revised third edition of the Sheet Metal Welding Guide is now available.

According to SMACNA, this edition reflects the latest welding technology and methods. Designed to help contractors understand and manage their welding operation more profitably, it includes updated coverage of welding processes, flux cored wire guidelines, and the latest equipment. The safety chapter covers such items as health effects, hazard controls, and safety procedures. Other chapters include guidelines for developing welding procedures, controlling weld quality, estimating, hiring and training welders, and welder certification.

This new publication features updated figures and drawings of typical welded joint designs. New guidelines for developing welding procedures are provided in the chapter on standards, codes, and specifications. The estimating portion is expanded and provides both a short and long method of estimating welding costs with examples. Welder training is updated and covers the International Training Institute’s (ITI’s) welding program and welder qualification. Integration of metric units is incorporated into the text and tables using “soft” conversion methods.

Members may purchase the 174-page Sheet Metal Welding Guide (third edition, 2007) at the special member price of $17 for the book, $20 for the CD-ROM, $27 for the CD/book combo, and $17 for the PDF download.
