Up Topic Welding Industry / ASME Codes / Orbital welding for ASME IX

Hey all,

Was asked to qualify some orbital welding on stainless tubing and there isnt any essential variables listed for automatic welding or orbital per say.   The type of orbital I believe has the tungsten inside and is based on the GTAW concept.  Does anyone have any experience going about finding my essential variables for this? From what I gather it refers to anything in this area as hybrid welding and QW-221 are all that apply to the welding process?

Does that mean that the existing Orbital settings are it as far as any variations for the welding?  I can see that being the case seeing as an automatic weld being made is pretty specific but again I cant find much more on it.

Anything would be greatly appreciated.

Hi JM,
For procedure qualification if it is GTAW you go to Table QW-256 for variables. And for performance qualification QW-361.2 for machine welding should apply.

Somebody correct me if I'm worng but I belive "automatic" means a welding done by a robot welding arm with minimal human involvement such as a welding operator.
