What welding positions are required when making a 6G weld on pipe?

To determine

The welding positions required when making a 6G weld on pipe.


The welding done on a pipe at a fixed position when the pipe is tilted at an angle of 45o is termed as the 6G position. To weld in this position, a welder is supposed to have necessary skills to master 6G welding position.


Figure 1: The pipe is fixed at an inclination of 45o in 6G position welding.

In 6G position welding, the weld changes position from vertical position to horizontal position and from overhead to flat position. The contour of the weld changes.

The 6G position becomes relatively difficult due to combination of the compound angles required to consider during the welding process. The shape of bead can be seen in the figure below.
