Types Of Joints In Welding
1. Tee Welding Joint:- Tee welding joints are formed when two members intersect at a 90° angle which makes the edges come together in the center of a plate or component.
2. Lap Welding Joint:- Lap welding joints are used most often to join two pieces with differing thicknesses together. Also considered a fillet type, the weld can be made on one or both sides.
3. Edge Welding Joint:- Edge welding Joints are often applied to sheet metal parts that have flanging edges or are placed at a location where a weld must be made to attach to adjacent pieces.
4. Corner Welding Joint:- Being one of the most popular welds in the sheet metal industry the Corner welding joint is used on the outer edge of the piece. This weld is a type of joint that comes together at right angles between two metal parts to form an L.
5. Butt Welding Joint:- Being the universally accepted method for attaching a pipe to itself it’s also used for valves, flanges, fittings, and other equipment. A butt welding joint is also known as a square grove weld.
6. Fillet Welding Joint:- Fillet Welded Joints are just another terminology for corner, lap, and tee joints. Fillet Welded Joints are the most common type of welding joint and account for nearly 75% of joints made with arc welding.
