Common Mistakes to Avoid When Working with IS 2062 E250 BR Plate

IS 2062 E250 BR plate is a carbon steel plate widely utilise in various industries due to its outstanding mechanical properties, high tensile strength, good weldability, and formability. However, working with this plate requires careful handling and attention to detail. 

In this blog, we will discuss common mistakes to avoid when working with IS 2062 E250 BR plate.

Mistake 1: Not Using Proper Tools and Techniques

For Cutting and Machining IS 2062 E250 BR plate requires the use of proper tools and techniques to prevent damage to the material. Using the wrong tools or techniques can produce more heat, leading to material warping or cracking. It is necessary to follow the recommended guidelines for cutting and machining, including using suitable cutting speeds, feeds, and coolants.

Mistake 2: Neglecting Preheat 

The importance of preheating the plate before welding is necessary to prevent the formation of cold cracks in the welds. Ignoring preheat the plate can result in poor weld quality and reduce the overall strength of the welded joint. Preheating helps to reduce the thermal shock that occurs during welding, minimizing the risk of cracking.

Mistake 3: Not Cleaning Before Welding

Not cleaning the plate fully before welding on a dirty plate can result in poor weld quality, leading to the formation of faults such as sponginess or addition. It is important to clean the plate completely before welding. Remove any dirt, rust, or oil that may be present on the surface. Using proper cleaning methods, such as degreasing or grinding, can help the welding process is successful.

Mistake 4: Avoiding Post-Welding Treatment

Ignoring the post-weld heat treatment (PWHT) is important to ease residual stress and improve the final strength and flexibility of the welded joint. Failure to perform PWHT can result in poor weld quality and reduce the complete stability of the welded joint. It is important to follow the suggested PWHT method for the specific steel type. To make sure that the welded joint meets the required quality standards.

Mistake 5: Not Handling With Care

Not storing the plate properly in storage can result in material damage, and lower its final strength and quality. The plate should be store in a dry and well-air-condition area, away from any moisture or heat sources. Holding the container flat is important to prevent bend or deformation.

In conclusion, while working with IS 2062 E250 BR plate requires careful handling and attention to detail. Avoiding the common mistakes discussed in this blog. It can help secure that the material is utilise safely and successfully, meeting the require quality standards. Following the recommended guidelines for cutting and machining, preheating, cleaning, post-weld heat treatment, and storage. It can help stop any material damage or fault, resulting in a high-quality end product.
