There are currently 4 technical terms in this directory beginning with the letter W.
weld

The weld means the ‘result of welding’. ‘The weld includes the weld metal and the heat-affected zone.’

[ISO/TR 25901-1:2016-03, Welding and allied processes — Vocabulary — Part 1: General terms]

The weld consists of the melted wire material, the melted workpiece material and the heat-affected zone in the workpiece. The heat-affected zone of our weld is very small due to the laser.
welding

Welding means a ‘joining process in which two or more parts are united producing a continuity in the nature of the workpiece material(s) by means of heat or pressure or both, and with or without the use of filler material’. ‘Welding processes may be used also for surfacing and remelting.’

[ISO/TR 25901-1:2016-03, Welding and allied processes — Vocabulary — Part 1: General terms]

We weld with a laser. This has the advantage that a small heat-affected zone is created during welding.
welding consumable

A welding consumable means a ‘material consumed in the making of a weld’. ‘The term includes filler material and auxiliary material.’

[ISO/TR 25901-1:2016-03, Welding and allied processes — Vocabulary — Part 1: General terms]

Our welding consumable is the filler material filler wire.
welding equipment

A welding equipment means an ‘individual apparatus used in welding’. ‘EXAMPLE Power source, wire feeder, etc.’

[ISO/TR 25901-1:2016-03, Welding and allied processes — Vocabulary — Part 1: General terms]

We are a manufacturer of laser welding heads and thus offer interchangeable welding equipment for laser processing machines. Our shielding gas chamber is not formally welding equipment, but a separate machinery component that nevertheless supports the welding process.
