The action or process of welding:
present participle of solder
joining two materials (especially two metals) together by applying heat, pressure and filler, either separately or in any combination, or
A method of joining two metallic surfaces by melting an alloy between them.
binding together inseparably; uniting closely or intimately.
An instance of soldering.
fastening two pieces of metal together by softening with heat and applying pressure
A soldered joint.
Welding is a fabrication process that joins materials, usually metals or thermoplastics, by using high heat to melt the parts together and allowing them to cool, causing fusion. Welding is distinct from lower temperature metal-joining techniques such as brazing and soldering, which do not melt the base metal.
a. & n. from Solder, v. t.
fastening firmly together
Soldering (AmE: , BrE: ) is a process in which two or more items are joined together by melting and putting a filler metal (solder) into the joint, the filler metal having a lower melting point than the adjoining metal. Unlike welding, soldering does not involve melting the work pieces.
