Title: Unique applications of personal computers in the welding environment

Abstract

The personal computer was found to be useful in supporting a variety of welding applications: 3-D representation of crack propagation using CADD software, storage and retrieval of photographic data using an image capture board, automated positioning of the welding electrode for GTA welding, interactive computer based voice communication for welding operations, surface temperature measurements of welded structures, and inventory control of weld material through use of bar codes.
