Welding - Laser-arc hybrid welding of steels, nickel and nickel alloys - Quality levels for imperfections
|Publication Date:||15 June 2013|
|ICS Code (Welded joints and welds):||25.160.40|
This International Standard specifies quality levels of imperfections in laser-arc hybrid welded joints for all types of steel, nickel and its alloys. It applies to material thickness ≥0,5 mm.
Three quality levels are given in order to permit application for a wide range of welded fabrication. They are designated by B, C and D. Quality level B corresponds to the highest requirement on the finished weld. The quality levels refer to production quality and not to the fitness-for-purpose (see 3.3) of the product manufactured.
