Welding Symbols (Part -1)

Welding symbols are a set of information conveyed by the design department to the welding Engineer and the welding operator. It contains all the necessary information viz. welding position, dimensions and geometry of the weld, details of groove/fillet, welding process etc. A basic weld symbol consists of three parts namely; Arrow Line Reference Line Tail These are shown in the diagram given below Arrow Line: Arrow indicates the position of….

Types of weld joints

The American Welding Society defines a joint as “the manner in which materials fit together.” there are five basic types of weld joints: • Butt joint. • T-joint. • Lap joint. • Corner joint. • Edge joint. 1. Butt joint: Butt joints are end to end joint, in which the parts lie in the same plane and are joined at the ends. 2. T-joint: In a T-joint (also called as….

TIG Welding (GTAW) Electrodes

In GTAW (Gas Tungsten Arc Welding) also known as TIG welding (Tungsten Inert Gas welding), a non consumable electrode (made up of Tungsten) is used. Tungsten is preferred due to high its high melting point (approximately 3,4100C) and high hardness. Either pure tungsten is used as electrode or it can be alloyed with other elements. These electrodes come in a variety of sizes and lengths. These electrodes are color coded….
