Welding Position Beginner’s Note

Here I would like to offer a brief overview of the welding positions that are most often used in practice. I will give you some information and rules on this. The images below serve only to illustrate general concepts; to accept this is not as accurate versions of the position of the torch or the like.

Welding positions for fillet welds

Corner seams are welded seams very often. You do not need to make extensive joint training, it is relatively easy to weld.

Horizontal position

This is mainly to create a weld in this position, there is no need for any special knowledge or skills necessary to perform his operation professionally.

Shell position

This position is also quite easy to weld and, if possible, workpieces should be prepared so that you can ignore this welding position.

Ceiling position

This position is a little more demanding. It is absolutely necessary to have a good production experience, there is a great risk of injury due to welding spatter and droplets that are higher. In the same way, the most control burners over the head fall harder.

Vertical Weld Up

This is the pinnacle of fillet welds. You should not try to weld seams of this type without knowledge, since the sources of errors without special knowledge and guidance can be almost endless. Even trained welders sometimes get problems with this seam.

Descent Vertical Weld

This position is a simple weld. However, this is far from the same as one of the other compounds. Thus, you should never weld sheets more than 4 mm thick from thematic layers. Only sealing joints or visible joints cannot be welded in this position.

Butt weld positions

Butt welds are also very common in the daily life of the welder. However, they are not very easy to make, because the material must have access to the welder anywhere in the full section. For thinner sheets there is no need for welding preparation, only experience, a sense of material and air gap between the sheets for welding. For a welder, a thin sheet can sometimes lead to frustration when, once again, new penetrations are created on the sheet. In order to weld thick plates, chamfers necessary for welded edges, it is necessary to use multilayer welding, this work should be carried out in any case only by a professional.
