Destructive Weld Bend Tests
So in order for us to tell how well a weld joint will hold up, sometimes a visual just isn’t enough. We need to do a destructive weld bend test to determine how well a weldment will hold up under certain types of pressures.
Here we have a student preparing his test pieces ( coupons) and placing them in the bender and witnessing the results. Everyone must do this at some point and nobody passes the first time so don’t get discouraged.
