They wouldn’t say “in position” for welding in the flat. They’d say downhand. Welding In position means positional welding, vertical/ overhead/horizontal.Never heard of them... doesn't mean they aren't used in some weld shops though.
J prep refers to a special bevel for butt welding on pipe, usually. Not sure what I prep is, it can't be very common.
Pre-turn for welding - could be specific vernacular for welding in-position - that is, all the welds carried out on flat position which is much easier to get right. Most people would just say in-position.
normal enough to me.Aah, I thought downhand referred to direction of welding; whether from left to right - or right to left.
As someone that's right-handed, I TIG weld from right to left in the flat position - and the same for MIG as it gives me better visibility of the corner root, etc. But I get the impression that this is unconventional..?
yeah... I believe it's technically right, I'm only exposed to a few welding shops around our way so not sure what everyone else calls it... to be honest I thought downhand was another term for downhill welding on pipe which was wrong, but never bothered to check because it's not something I come across at work at all, lolso do you call it an out of positional weld then?
