Russell G. Smith Australian Institute of Criminology
Paper presented at the conference: Internet Crime held in Melbourne, 16-17 February 1998, by the Australian Institute of Criminology
Introduction This paper considers the opportunities which the Internet creates for individuals to steal funds which are transferred electronically across its networks, and other forms of fraud in connection with on-line commercial transactions. It also examines a variety of strategies designed to prevent such illegality from taking place. The Internet is, arguably, at the moment an expansive advertising medium in which information as well as goods and services are made available to users throughout the world.

StatweldPlasma Transferred Arc
The STARWELD Plasma Transferred Arc (PTA) Hardfacing System produces arcurately controlled, high quality, wear and corrosion resistant deposits on a wide variety of materials and parts. The process is particularly suited for high-speed production where a uniform deposit is required. Plasma transferred arc utilizes a tungsten arc as the energy source. The surfacing material is added as a metal powder. Plasma transferred arc surfacing is a true welding process, not a metal spray process. PTA deposits are homogeneous and fuse to the work piece forming a metallurgical bond. Argon gas forms the plasma, transports the metal powder and shields both the overlay and adjacent base metal from oxidation and harmful gas pickup during deposition. The process is characterized by high ...
