Abstract

This article describes the basics of network technology and how networks are being applied to commercial welding applications. The goal is to help non-computer-expert weld technology users to decide where products that use networks may be beneficial, and to identify their potential advantages and disadvantages. It will hopefully prepare network newcomers enough for them to follow up with more in-depth reading and investigations. The topics are: What Is Networking Technology? How Are Networks Implemented? Where Can Networks Be Used? (And Why Is the Use of Networks Increasing?) What Welding Applications May Benefit From Network Technology? A List of References for Learning More. Discussion Questions.
