Foreword

o
International Standard
IS0 6947: 1993 Welds - Working positions - Definitions of angles of slope and rotation,
which was prepared by ISO/TC 44 ?Weldingand allied processes?of the International Organization for Standardization, has
been adopted by Technical Committee CEN/TC 121 ?Welding?,the Secretariat of which is held by DS, as a European
Standard.
The standard supersedes prEN 1157.
This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an identical text or by

.c
endorsement, and conflicting national standards withdrawn, by July 1997 at the latest.
In accordance with the CENKENELEC Internal Regulations, the national standards organizations of the following countries
are bound to implement this European Standard:
Austria, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, the
Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.

Endorsement notice
The text of the InternationalStandard I S 0 6947: 1993 was approved by CEN as a European Standard without any modification.

Introduction

xw
The main reasons for the revision of IS0 6947 : 1980 are given below.

The working positions should be valid for welds in plates and pipes.

The direction of welding is an essential parameter for determining the working posi-
zf
tion, e.g. up or down; however, in IS0 6947 : 1980, the working direction was not dealt
with.

l h e working position is not dependent on the geometrical arrangement of the joint,


e.g. butt or fillet joint, or that of the semi-finished product.

The limitations for slope (within Oo to No)and for rotation (up to a maximum of 18o),
as specified in IS0 6947 : 1980 (clockwiseor counter-clockwise),prevent the complete
specification of the weld and the direction of welding in space; it could not, therefore,
b
be applicable for automatic and robotic welding. It is intended in this second edition of
IS0 6947 that the whole sphere be included so that welds in all types and all directions
are covered.

To avoid any misunderstanding, the main positions have been given symbols which
can easily be used for designation purposes; these symbols were chosen independent-
ly of possible meaningful abbreviations, .e. they are not derived from any particular
language.
w.

The centreline is normally identical with the position of the stick electrode. The main
positions have been defined without any tolerances for slope and rotation. For some
stick electrodes, it may be useful to add the required tolerances as necessary for their
application. In such cases, the main position, e.g. flat position, can be supplemented
by specifying limits of slope and rotation.

2 Definitions Each particular cross-section has its own specific Co-ordinate
system.
For the purposes of this International Standard, the following
definitions apply. NOTE - For pipes with inclined axes, the slope is intrinsically
expressed by the welding direction (see 3.2).

of the weld in space and by the working direction. 2.3 rotation, R : The angle between the centreline of the

The viewing direction for the weld cross-section is directed towards the co-ordinate origin, .e. opposite to the working direction (see
figure 2).

co
In the case of slopes where S = Woor S = 270 (seefigure 11, it is not necessary to determine the rotation because all angles may
occur. Examples of how rotation is determined on symmetrical and asymmetrical butt and fillet welds are given in figures 3 to 5.

NOTES
1 The centreline usually coincides with the position of the filler material, e.g. covered electrode.
2 For pipes with inclined axes, the rotation is intrinsically expressed by the angle of inclination (see 3.3).

The main positions, defined by slope and rotation, are given in table 1and illustrated in figure 6. For the sake of clarity, symbols for the
main working positions are given from the co-ordinate origin; the working direction is outwards.
