A pragmatic 'how to do it' booklet written with the layout and welding interface in brain. It informs designers not just of what they need to learn about welding but additionally, and most significantly, units out the data the fashion designer should still supply to the welding engineer or fabrication superintendent in order that the designer's goals will be completed, when it comes to engineering functionality, defense, reliability, fee and visual appeal

These developments mean that welded joints can be made in locations where a human or conventional machine welder could not reach. Nonetheless, designers should appreciate that the more accessible a welded joint, the more likely it is to be of good quality, and, of equal importance, accessible for inspection and, if necessary, repair. The last point is of some importance for if a defective weld is found on inspection it will have to be taken out and remade, a procedure which may not lend itself to robotics.
This can induce local concentrations of stress which will not be predicted by calculations which assume proper alignment. 45. In any application, the decision regarding acceptable weld defect levels has implications for product manufacturing costs and the liability of customers and users. It is therefore necessary that the matter be dealt with at the highest technical and commercial levels in a firm and not left to individual engineers or draughtsmen. 55 CHAPTER 11 Non-destructive testing This is a specialised activity with its own skills and technology.
Nonetheless, designers should appreciate that the more accessible a welded joint, the more likely it is to be of good quality, and, of equal importance, accessible for inspection and, if necessary, repair. The last point is of some importance for if a defective weld is found on inspection it will have to be taken out and remade, a procedure which may not lend itself to robotics. Naturally, there are methods of reaching points of limited access which are used when the situation demands it but the cost can be astronomical especially if the product is already in service.
