Single-Bevel - 1/2" to 1/2" @ 20 ipm

Additional Information

This following single-pass weld was made using our hybrid plasma-GMAW process (SuperMIG®), in a single-bevel/tee-joint configuration (30° bevel w/4mm root face), in the 1G position, with zero root opening and at a travel speed of 20 in/min (508 mm/min). As per customer requirement, a minimum effective throat of 10mm was achieved (measured 12.5mm) with approximately 1.5mm of penetration beyond the root. This scenario utilized 80/20 (Argon/CO2) shielding gas and 0.052” ER70S-6 wire in a spray transfer (CV)

Where is this applicable?

Single bevel joints are commonly seen in the manufacturing of rail cars chassis, excavator and loaders arms, crane booms (4 plates design). Depending on the thickness, a small bevel is recommended, requiring 2 or 3 passes with conventional welding processes. SuperMIG® allows for the performance of such welds in a single pass up to 15 mm (5/8").
