Hobart Brothers Explains AWS Classification System in New Poster

To help welders better assess the suitability of their tubular filler metal to their welding application and to enhance the overall understanding of tubular wires, Hobart Brothers Company is offering a poster explaining the AWS (American Welding Society) classification system for four types of tubular wire.

With explanations of the classification system for mild steel flux-cored wire, mild steel metal-cored wire, low alloy flux-cored wire and low alloy metal-cored wire, the poster is available free of charge. A smaller version of the poster can also be downloaded from the Hobart Brothers web site.

"Knowing the AWS classification for a type of filler metal can provide a wealth of information for the astute welder who knows the meaning of the characters in the AWS classification system," said a company spokesperson. "However, remembering the AWS classification systems can be confusing and difficult. This new poster provides a convenient resource for mastering the classification systems for these types of wires."

The AWS Classifications poster is the third in a series of free educational posters designed to increase welding knowledge and terms among students, hobbyists and professionals alike.
