Abstract

SINCE their introduction into this country a few years ago, the inert‐gas‐shielded welding processes have rapidly become preeminent in the light‐alloy field, where their advantages are well known. At the Luton Establishment of Messrs D. Napier and Son, Ltd., these processes have been the subject of intensive development during the last three years, and this work has made possible their current adoption in various forms as normal productive processes. Wherever possible, mechanization has been introduced for reasons discussed later, and components are being produced in a variety of light alloys. The majority of the applications are highly stressed fabrications whose physical soundness and dimensional accuracy require to be of a particularly high standard.
