What is the symbol for a spot weld?

The spot weld symbol is simply a circle that may be placed above, below, or centered on the reference line. When the symbol is centered on the reference line this indicates that there is no side significance.

How do you show welds on drawings?

Any symbol that is used to show a joint or weld type feature on the other side of the arrow line is always placed on a dotted line. BS 499 and AWS require symbols to be placed above the reference line (which indicate the other side) or below the reference line (indicating the arrow side of the joint).

Where do welding symbols go on drawings?

Each welding position has its own basic symbol, which is typically placed near the center of the reference line (and above or below it, depending on which side of the joint it’s on). The symbol is a small drawing that can usually be interpreted as a simplified cross-section of the weld.

Why is spot welding used?

Spot welding (also known as resistance spot welding) is a resistance welding process. This welding process is used primarily for welding two or more metal sheets together by applying pressure and heat from an electric current to the weld area.

What does weld all around symbol mean?

The weld-all-around symbol indicates that the weld continues completely around the perimeter of the joint, even for circular joint members. As a reference you can always take a look at figure 34A of AWS A2. 4:2012, Standard Symbols for Welding, Brazing, and Nondestructive Examinations.
