Welding technology is an important technology that involves the joining of two or more pieces of metal or thermoplastics together in order to form a single piece. This technology is applied to many of processes in the manufacturing industries and their products, such as automobiles, vessels, ships, airplanes, bridges, pipelines, etc. All welding techniques are continuously growing and new welding methods, welding, and the characterization of new materials are being investigated in order to satisfy new demands and needs from customers. The welding industry is continuously looking for a way to increase and improve the welding method, process efficiency, and welded joint reliability. Thus, major producers, scientists, engineers, and researchers have gathered at the ICWET16 event (http://icwet16.gantep.edu.tr/) in order to share their preoccupations, challenges, and possible solutions. This 4th International Conference on Welding Technologies and Exhibition (ICWET16) is one of a series, held regularly, at two-years intervals. This Special Issue is set to publish selected works presented at the conference to share recent progress and new achievements in the welding technology field.
