ISO/TC 44/SC 14 "Welding and brazing in aerospace" has just approved a new series : ISO/AWI 17927, Welding for aerospace applications - Fusion welding of metallic components, Part 1: Process specification and Part 2: Acceptance criteria.
Since fusion welding is a widely used joining procedure within the aerospace industry, ISO/TC 44/SC 14 proposed the creation of an international standard for fusion welding in aerospace which is mainly based AWS D 17.1 and DIN 29595.
Although established internal company specifications are established, ISO/TC 44/SC 14 agreed that the development of an International Standard specifically designed for fusion welding of metallic components would give the wider aerospace industry the opportunity to utilise the guidelines identified within this proposed standard and thus, establish a minimum level of prerequisite for fusion welding of metallic components used in the manufacture of aerospace components.
The series should be published in 2021.
