Weld Bead Length Per Charge Test

We welded almost 10 feet of 1/4" penetration bead into 3/4" plate steel on a single charge. Every welder I know said "That's a lot of welding!"

Face Bend and Root Bends AWS D1.1 Structural Weld Test

They welded two pieces of 3/8" steel together with the Tactical Welder. Then they grind the welds flat so it looks like one piece of steel. After ultrasound and X ray imaging, they cut the piece in half and bend one half 180 degrees in one direction (face bend) and the other half 180 degrees in the other direction (root bend). No cracks, no voids...it passed AWS D1.1 Structural Weld Test!
