Welding has been for many year from the middle ages. In the middle ages welding was known as blacksmithing. Blacksmithing is the technique of forging wrought iron and steel. Blacksmiths made horseshoes, weapons, and repair armor. Blacksmith get there name because they were smith and worked with black metals like tin, silver, and gold. With the work they do they need shatterproof hammers and handles because most of their work is forging metals with these hammers. In the middle ages blacksmiths made armor and weapons that were for the nights. They heated a steal till it melted and pour it into a rock with the design of the weapon or armor. Once it takes form the picket up with some players and start hammering it down to the shape they want. …show more content…
England has credit for the discovery of the acetylene. This was made arc between two carbon electrodes that use a battery. Voltaic cell was discovered by Allesandro Volta. This technique is were two different metals can connect and can become a conductor when wet. Sponge platinum is type when you cold press and then hammer when. This technique was used to build walls metal plates and more. There was a new welding discovery but was used in the 1900. This welding was called acetylene and was discovered by Edmund Davy in 1836. Later on in 1841 air hydrogen blowpipes were invented by a German named H. Rossier. In 1846 one man named James Nasmyth discovered that if you preparing weld surfaces with a slightly convex surface that it squeezes out the joints. This helps improve the strength in the joints. In the 19 century there was an improvement from …show more content…
The process he outlined is popular today.
1909:
The plasma arc system using gas vortex to stabilize the arc is invented by Schonner while working as BASF.
The Quasi-arc electrode is invented which is wrapped with an asbestos yarn by A.P. Strohmenger.
1910:
Patent issued to Charles Hyde for brazing steel tubes.
1911:
First pipeline created using oxyacetylene welding. Occurs outside of Philadelphia.
Matters develops the plasma arc torch for heating a metal fusing furnace.

1912:
Kjellberg received a second patent for an electrode with a heavier coating of asbestos and a binder made out of sodium silicate.
Lincoln Electric introduces first commercial welding machines
First auto body is welded by E.G. Budd using spot welding
Coated metal electrodes introduced by A.P. Strohmenger. Coatings were made from Clay or Lime. Also awarded a patent for an electrode coated with blue asbestos and a sodium silicate binder. First time an electrode produced a impurity free weld.
1919:
Alternating current welding was invented by C.J. Holslag, but did not become popular for another decade. Electric arc welding was the method used in the United States until 1920. The problem with the method was that the welding arc was unstable and the welds were not as strong as the metal being
