Just a tip to the rest of you: this is not necessarily true.

When you apply high temperatures to metal, as in welding, you affect the atomic structure of the metal and can actually weaken the metal surrounding the weld. Although the weld itself is quite strong, the Heat Affected Area can be considerably weaker.

Just a little FYI
