Abstract

This article analyzes influence of the height of the weld reinforcement on the cost of additional materials in the MAG welding process.For this purpose, a simple calculator was created based on which the welds were calculated in the quality levels B, C and D and the costs of additional materials for butt joints made of low-alloy and high-alloy steel and T-joints made of low-alloy steel. Considerations on this subject were carried out based on the PN-EN ISO 5817 standard defining quality levels according to welding nonconformities. The losses resulting from exceeding a given quality level are presented.
