What is Facing Surface in Welding?

The facing surface is the area of a material that will be in contact with another material during welding. This surface must be clean and smooth in order to create a strong weld. Facing surfaces can be cleaned using a variety of methods, including:

  • sanding,
  • grinding,
  • or chemical cleaning.

Advantages of Facing Surface

Facing surface provides many advantages during welding, including:

  • Creating a strong weld.
  • Preventing weld defects.
  • Allowing for proper heat transfer.
  • Ensuring the correct amount of filler material is used.
  • Reducing welding time and costs.

What is the root face of a weld?

The root face is the side of a weld where the filler material meets the base metal. This surface must be smooth in order to create a strong weld.

What are the 4 positions of welding?

The four positions of welding are:

  1. Flat position.
  2. Horizontal position.
  3. Vertical position.
  4. Overhead position.

Fillet weld

It can be made in all four positions, while groove welds are limited to the flat and horizontal positions.
