[SOLVED] Odd question

Forgive me, i don't know a lot about Physics...

What effect does an Elect. Magnet have on a Weldment...

IE., Does molten metal contain magnetic propertes...

See I'm wondering about the effects of Electric magnets on Welding. would a magnet produce an alligned weld... Aside from Arc Blow...

Probably not, no. Iron is an example of a ferromagnet. These loose their magnetism when heated above the Curie Temperature. This is typically lower than the melting point. So an arcwelder will destroy any magnetism in the material.

Magnetism is a function of the crystaline structure of metals.

In liquid form, there are no crystals.
