 Welding Positions

  • Flat - 1G - Welding flat on the bench
  • Horizontal 2G - Welding plates horizontally as at eye-level
  • Vertical Up - 3G Welding vertically from lowest position to highest
  • Overhead - 4G Welding 180 deg. above the flat position

When the candidate passes the most difficult position, the lessor positions are granted as of right for no extra cost

Stainless Steel TiG Welding AS/NZS2980 Procedures: 



This test replaces the former 4703 welding procedure.

  • It is a 6G purge butt welded stainless steel tube in the 45 deg position.
  • It is welded non rotationally with a weld incorporating both vertical up and down with 2 x stop/starts. Simply expressed the test piece is clamped at 45 deg. in a holder with purge hose attached and welding may begin at the bottom (or top) and weld down (or up) 180 deg.
  • The candidate starts from this point and welds vertically back up or down to the top, whereby all the conditions described above are satisfied.
  • The 2 test pieces must be at least 125 mm in length and 1.5 mm thick, which will qualify the candidate for tube welds of up to 3mm thick.
  • The diameter of the test piece determines the diameter of tube the candidate is qualified to weld adopting a simple equation which is 2 x d and 1/2 x d.
  • So that assuming the candidate achieves AS/NZS2980 in 50mm S/S tube this will cover the welder for S/S tube from 100mm dia down to 25mm dia.

The final condition to be satisfied is the examination length of the weld which must not be less than 150 mm, so that the smaller the diameter of the tube welded the more individual test pieces must be macro tested. So in the case of a 12.5mm dia test, to achieve an examination weld length of 150 mm 4 separate test pieces would have to be submitted. (3.142 x 12.5 = 39.27 mm x 4 = 157mm; well within a 150 mm examination weld length)

Given the complexities of the AS/NZ 2980 welding test this explanation can only cover the broad scope of the procedure. We encourage all prospective candidates to visit our Academy to see what we do and talk to our tutor prior to undertaking a welding test.

COST FOR CERTIFICATION:        $590.00 (incl GST) 

An additional cost of $55.00 an hour applies for all Tig training aside from the 2 hours allocated for testing.
