  • Identify supplementary symbols
  • Describe the purpose of the tail
  • Interpret additional information on a welding print

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.

Comprehensive Training on Symbols Used on Blueprints

Using Amatrol’s world-class eLearning curriculum, students will go in-depth in studying symbols used on blueprints. Learners will start the course by understanding the importance of symbols before diving into the eight elements used most commonly. From there, the curriculum will explain the difference between Groove Welds and Non-Groove Welds, as well as how welds are dimensioned. Finally, the unit ends with looking into supplementary weld symbols, specifically on identifying and interpreting common types.
