Revision of B1001-17 Standard Specification for Copper Electrode Wire Used for Welding Seams of Steel Cans


5 years revision
Clean up redundancy in referenced documents as removing docs already referenced in B49 or removing withdrawn ones.
Insert additional good practices in workmanship.
Remove hard temper from welding wire options based on the fact that there is no can welding wire machine using hard wire to weld cans and soft wire is required within all can welding wire machine specifications.
Adjust the lower end of the wire size tolerances in usual range, also providing minimum required spread during wire flattening prior seam welding.
