Resources on Magnetic Pulse

This Bulletin_81-MPW-Resources provides online resources to Magnetic Pulse Welding.

MPW was introduced in PWL#018 (7), PWL#046 (2) and in our website page on Magnetic Pulse Welding.

Here, in this Bulletin_81-MPW-Resources we introduce online resources on this important process, which enjoys remarkable successes in various industrial branches.

The purpose is to make available MPW-Resources to our interested readers, diversified information likely to provide ideas on problems solutions and possible new applications.

Some of the published online MPW-Resources referred here can be downloaded at no cost.

To benefit from the information made available, there are no shortcuts: one should dedicate to learning the necessary time.

The references published in this Bulletin_81-MPW-Resources are selected to provide useful knowledge to our readers.

Some of the sources are commercial companies, presenting their services or goods together with technical advice.

No endorsement or recommendations of such offers is intended.

Readers should check if such information meets their purposes and needs.

The addresses reported hereafter in this Bulletin_81-MPW-Resources,  were live and correct at the time of their publication.

There is no guarantee that they will always be so, because they are administered by the sources themselves and are under their control.

Note: References to articles or other documents (MPW-Resources) are given here in one of two forms. If the links are "live" (usually underlined or otherwise highlighted) they are operated with a click of the mouse.

If they are URL's (Uniform Resource Locator), which is the analogue of an address, they begin with "http://..." or "www.". These are not live and must be copied and pasted entirely into the browser (after having selected them with the mouse or otherwise).

If they are long they may be displayed in two or more lines. In that case one has to care that the URL be copied completely in a single line without any space, and Enter.

If the information is important to you, you may save the selected pages in a suitable folder on your Computer for easy reference.

You are welcome to forward this Bulletin_81-MPW-Resources page to those of your friends who may profit of this information.
