This Technical Note was originally published as TN-560-b1. In cold-formed steel construction, welding is a viable connection method. Of the various forms of welding, arc is most commonly used to join both cold-formed steel members and hardware components. Prefabrication of roof trusses, panelized of walls, and hardware connections are all ideal applications where welding may be the preferred joining method. This Tech Note provides information on the applicable codes processes, procedures, design considerations, fabrication and inspection.
