The American Welding Society has just released the latest edition of Weldperfect: The Easy Guide to Perfect Welding by Darrel McGuire. Weldperfect was written to help give people practical knowledge of welding and simplify some of the technical language used by the profession. Color illustrations and charts are used to explain the variety of welding applications, and the book includes a chapter on the importance of welding safely. Other chapters include information on shielded metal arc welding, flux cored arc welding, gas metal arc welding, submerged arc welding, filler metals, and metallurgy, as well as useful appendices on common welding symbols and definitions of welding-related terminology.
Weldperfect author Darrel McGuire has had a long and distinguished career in the materials joining industry. McGuire began his welding career as the son of a contractor, working on construction sites as a teenager. Today, he is a Senior Welding Engineer for a Fortune 500 company in Wisconsin. McGuire wrote Weldperfect, with the idea to 'keep it simple.' In the book he shares his belief that 'welding is a great place for any young adult to start a career.' Regardless of education or background, everyone can learn something new and interesting from Weldperfect.
