What are Welding Symbols? Why are They Important?

Becoming a skilled welder means more than just having the ability to join metal parts. A welder must also have the ability to read welding prints effectively. A welding print may call for different welding processes, so being able to comprehend and interpret the different symbols and abbreviations associated with these processes is essential for producing designs correctly.

Welding symbols communicate all of the necessary information from the designer to the welder through a standardized system of symbols. Along with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the American Welding Society (AWS) sets the standards in the United States for these symbols.
