What is capping in SMAW?

Cap – The final weld bead in a weld joint. It may be completed in the form of a stringer bead or by a weaving motion back and forth. Fisheye – Refers to the shape of the puddle while welding. It is sometimes also used to describe the shape of the crater at the end of the weld.

What is a cap weld?

Cap welding is the common term used for the projection spot welding of the caps (or lids) on electronic packages. The process seems to be fairly straightforward: place components in a metal package and seal.

What is 6G welding certification?

The 6G pipe weld is one of the most difficult weld certification tests to pass because the pipe is at a 45-degree angle and immovable. Welders performing the 6G certification test must weld in all positions including horizontal, vertical and overhead, and may have to weld both right-handed and left-handed.

What does capping mean urban?

Per Urban Dictionary, no cap “usually means no lie,” so it often follows an unbelievable statement or serious question. If you’re “capping,” they say, it means you’re lying.

What is 6G welding position?

6G Position In the 6G welding position, the pipe slopes at approximately 45° from the horizontal (X) axis or 45° from the vertical (Y) axis. The pipe is in a fixed position, so the welder must move around the pipe to perform the welding.

What is SMAW 6g?

The 6G position is a combination of all of the structural and pipe welding positions, with a full transition between them all, plus a hard side and easy side, depending on if you are left handed or right! Since pipe welders can (some not all) earn a doctor’s salary this is the most wanted welding certification!

Why 6g is the most difficult welding position?

This is because the molten filling metal flows downwards during the welding process, pulled by gravity into the joint cavity. This presents a very challenging position for a welder, who uses all his skills and a variety of body positions to accomplish the most difficult weld in the 6G join: the overhead weld.
