Other welding and joining technologies with which he has experience include resistance spot welding, inertia welding, and projection welding.
Because we have in-house forging capability we can internal-upset our tube bodies prior to inertia welding. For high-end oilfield tubulars this has always been considered mandatory, unfortunately it is not a practice that has found its way into the manufacture of HDD tubulars for small to medium-sized rigs.
