Calculating the weight of weld metal requires that we consider the following items.
1. Area of the cross-section of the weld.
2. Length of the weld.

In the fillet weld shown below, the area of the cross-section (the triangle) is equal to one half the base times
the height, the volume of the weld is equal to the area times the length, and the weight of the weld then, is
the volume times the weight of the material (steel) per cubic inch.

This example is for a fillet weld with no reinforcement. Similar calculations can be made for butt or lap joints.

Deposition Efficiency
Cored
Wire
Products

The deposition efficiency of an electrode or welding wire indicates the portion of that product you can
expect to be deposited as weld metal. Losses due to slag, spatter, fume and in the case of semi automatic
or automatic welding processes, the ends cut before each weld and the wire left in the feed cable make no
process 100% efficient.

Weld Metal Cost Worksheet Instructions

Stainless
Steel
Products

To help you quantify your specific cost of weld metal deposited, ESAB has developed the weld metal cost
worksheet. Directions will assist you in calculating your specific cost to deposit weld metal while comparing
it to alternative methods or product.
1. Indicate the complete descriptions of the proposed and present products at (1) and (2).

Solid Wire
& Rod
Products

2. Secure the following information for the formulas (3), and write the data in the proper blanks in the
proposed method and present method columns (4).
A. Labor and Overhead

ESAB
TIG & MIG
Wires

Actual labor and overhead rate of your customer. If this figure is unknown, select a reasonable rate
for your area. This figure will be the same in the proposed and present method columns.
B. Deposition Rate in Pounds Per Hour

Cored
Wire
Products

The deposition rate is the actual weight of weld metal which can be deposited in one hour at a given
welding current at 100% operating factor. In other words, it is the amount of weld metal which could
be deposited in one hour if the welder could weld for a full hour without stopping.

C. Operating Factor

Conversion

Operating factor is the percentage of a welders working day that is actually spent welding. It is the
arc time divided by the total hours worked multiplied by 100 and expressed as a percentage. A 30%
(.30) operating factor means that only 30% of the welders day is actually spent welding. If the
customers operating factor is not known, assume a 30% operating factor for SMAW, and a 45%
operating factor for semi-automatic GMAW and FCAW. For automatic GMAW and FCAW, an
operating factor of 60% to 80% may be assumed.
D. Electrode Cost Per Pound
Select the quantity price bracket in which the customer now purchases his filler metal. If unknown,
select the price bracket you think applicable and use for both the present and proposed calculations.

E. Deposition Efficiency
The deposition efficiency is the relationship of the electrode used to the amount of the weld metal
deposited expressed in percent, or:

Stainless
Steel
Products

DE =

Weight of Weld Metal


Weight of Electrode Used.

Solid Wire
& Rod
Products

For instance, if it takes 4 lbs. of electrode to deposit


3 lbs. (1.4 kg) of weld metal, E = 3/4 = .75 or 75%.
F. Gas Flow Rate (Cubic Feet/Hour)

ESAB
TIG & MIG
Wires

For GMAW with solid wires use a shielding gas flow rate of 25 to 30 cubic feet per hour. For small
diameter flux cored electrodes (1/16 or 1.6 mm diameter and under) use 35 cubic feet per hour. For
large diameter flux cored electrodes (5/64 and over) use 40-45 cubic feet per hour.
G. Gas Cost Per Cubic Foot

Cored
Wire
Products

Gas cost per cubic foot will vary depending on the type of shielding gas being used and your location.
3. Complete the calculations in the Proposed Method and Present Method columns and record the
calculated costs in the blanks on the far right, (5) & (6) of each column.

4. Add the calculated cost and record the sums at the bottom, (7) & (8) of each column.
5. Subtract Present Method cost (6) from Proposed Method cost (5) for each of the sections titled Labor
& Overhead, Electrode, and Gas. Enter the differences in the blanks indicated at right (5 minus 6).
Negative numbers should be enclosed in parenthesis ( ).

6. In the Total Variable Cost/lb section, subtract Present Method cost (8) from Proposed Method cost
(7). Enter the difference in the blank indicated as Total. Negative numbers should be enclosed in
parenthesis ( ).

A (negative) number in Total represents the cost reduction you will realize as a
dollar saving per pound of weld metal deposited.
7. The bottom section of the form will be useful if you must buy new equipment to use the proposed
product. That part of the form is self-explanatory with the exception of the DEPOSITION FACTOR. The
deposition factor is simply the deposition rate multiplied by the operating factor and is already a part of
the calculation as shown at (9) in the labor and overhead formula for the proposed method.

1. Make a drawing of the cross-section of the joint to exact scale.


2. Divide the cross-section into right triangles, rectangles and
sketch in the desired reinforcement.
3. Dimension the thickness, angles angle leg lengths, root opening
and the length and height of the reinforcement.
4. Total the weight per meter of each of the elements from the
chart for the weight per meter of the weld.
