Welding and allied processes - Symbolic representation on drawings - Welded joints (ISO 2553:2019)

This document defines the rules to be applied for symbolic representation of welded joints on technical drawings. This can include information about the geometry, manufacture, quality and testing of the welds. The principles of this document can also be applied to soldered and brazed joints.
It is recognized that there are two different approaches in the global market to designate the arrow side and other side on drawings. In this document:
— clauses, tables and figures which carry the suffix letter "A" are applicable only to the symbolic representation system based on a dual reference line;
— clauses, tables and figures which carry the suffix letter "B" are applicable only to the symbolic representation system based on a single reference line;
— clauses, tables and figures which do not have the suffix letter "A" or "B" are applicable to both systems.
The symbols shown in this document can be combined with other symbols used on technical drawings, for example to show surface finish requirements.
An alternative designation method is presented which can be used to represent welded joints on drawings by specifying essential design information such as weld dimensions, quality level, etc. The joint preparation and welding process(es) are then determined by the production unit in order to meet the specified requirements.
NOTE Examples given in this document, including dimensions, are illustrative only and are intended to demonstrate the proper application of principles.

Schweißen und verwandte Prozesse - Symbolische Darstellung in Zeichnungen - Schweißverbindungen (ISO 2553:2019)

Dieses Dokument legt die Regeln fest, die in technischen Zeichnungen für die symbolische Darstellung von Schweißnähten anzuwenden sind. Die Symbole können Angaben zur Geometrie, Herstellung, Qualität und Prüfung der Schweißnähte enthalten. Die Grundsätze dieses Dokuments können auch für weich- und hartgelötete Verbindungen verwendet werden.
Es wird die Tatsache berücksichtigt, dass es auf dem Weltmarkt zwei unterschiedliche Methoden gibt, um in Zeichnungen die Pfeilseite und die Gegenseite zu kennzeichnen. In diesem Dokument
- gelten Abschnitte, Tabellen und Bilder mit dem Suffix "A" nur für das System, bei dem in den Symbolen eine doppelte Bezugslinie verwendet wird,
- gelten Abschnitte, Tabellen und Bilder mit dem Suffix "B" nur für das System, bei dem in den Symbolen eine einfache Bezugslinie verwendet wird,
- gelten Abschnitte, Tabellen und Bilder, in denen weder der Suffix "A" noch der Suffix "B" angegeben ist, für beide Darstellungssysteme.
Die in diesem Dokument angegebenen Symbole können mit anderen Symbolen kombiniert werden, die in technischen Zeichnungen angewendet werden, z. B. um Anforderungen an die Oberflächenbeschaffenheit darzustellen.
Ein alternatives Bezeichnungsverfahren wird beschrieben, das angewendet werden kann, um Schweißverbindungen in Zeichnungen durch Festlegung der wichtigsten Konstruktionsangaben, z. B. Nahtmaße, Bewertungsgruppen usw., darzustellen Die Schweißnahtvorbereitung und der/die Schweißprozess(e) werden anschließend von dem Hersteller so festgelegt, dass die festgelegten Anforderungen erfüllt werden.
ANMERKUNG Die in diesem Dokument angegebenen Beispiele, einschließlich der Maße, dienen nur zur Veranschaulichung der korrekten Anwendung der Grundsätze.

Soudage et techniques connexes - Représentations symboliques sur les dessins - Assemblages soudés (ISO 2553:2019)

Le présent document définit les règles à suivre pour représenter symboliquement les joints soudés sur les dessins techniques. Cela peut inclure des informations sur la géométrie, la fabrication, la qualité et les essais des soudures. Les principes du présent document peuvent également être appliqués aux joints soudés et brasés.
Le présent document reconnaît qu'il existe deux méthodes différentes sur le marché mondial pour désigner le côté ligne repère et le côté opposé à la ligne repère sur les dessins. Il convient de noter que :
— les articles, tableaux et figures qui portent le suffixe «A» sont applicables uniquement au système de représentation symbolique fondé sur un double trait de référence;
— les articles, tableaux et figures qui portent le suffixe «B» sont applicables uniquement au système de représentation symbolique fondé sur un trait de référence simple;
— les articles, tableaux et figures qui ne portent ni le suffixe «A» ni le suffixe «B» sont applicables aux deux systèmes.
Les symboles donnés dans le présent document peuvent être combinés à d'autres symboles utilisés sur les dessins techniques, par exemple pour indiquer les exigences de finition de surface.
Une autre méthode de désignation est donnée. Elle peut être utilisée pour représenter des joints soudés sur les dessins en spécifiant les informations essentielles de conception, telles que les dimensions de la soudure, le niveau de qualité, etc. La préparation du joint et le(s) procédé(s) de soudage sont ensuite déterminés par l'unité de production afin de satisfaire aux exigences spécifiées.
NOTE Les exemples du présent document, y compris les dimensions, ne sont donnés qu'à titre d'illustration et sont destinés à montrer l'application appropriée des principes.

Varjenje in sorodni postopki - Prikazovanje s simboli na risbah - Varjeni spoji (ISO 2553:2019)

Ta dokument določa pravila za prikazovanje varjenih spojev na tehničnih risbah s simboli. To lahko vključuje podatke o geometriji, izdelavi, kakovosti in preskušanju zvarov. Načela tega dokumenta je mogoče uporabiti tudi pri spajkanih in trdo spajkanih spojih.
Na svetovnem trgu obstajata na risbah dva različna pristopa za označevanje na strani s puščico in na drugi strani. V tem dokumentu:
– točke, preglednice in številke s črko »A« se uporabljajo samo za sistem simboličnega predstavljanja, ki temelji na dvojni referenčni vrstici;
– točke, preglednice in številke s črko »B« se uporabljajo samo za sistem simboličnega predstavljanja, ki temelji na enojni referenčni vrstici;
– točke, preglednice in številke brez dodane črke »A« ali »B« se uporabljajo za oba sistema.
Simbole, prikazane v tem dokumentu, je mogoče kombinirati z drugimi simboli, ki se uporabljajo na tehničnih risbah, na primer za prikaz zahtev glede površinske obdelave.
Predstavljena je alternativna metoda označevanja, ki jo je mogoče uporabiti za predstavljanje varjenih spojev na risbah z navedbo bistvenih informacij o konstrukciji, kot so mere vara, raven kakovosti itd. Da so zahteve izpolnjene, poskrbi proizvodna enota, ki določi postopek izdelave in varjenja.
OPOMBA: Primeri v tem dokumentu, vključno z merami, so zgolj ilustrativni in namenjeni
ponazoritvi pravilne uporabe načel.

Foreword

ISO (the International Organization for Standardization) is a worldwide federation of national standards

bodies (ISO member bodies). The work of preparing International Standards is normally carried out

through ISO technical committees. Each member body interested in a subject for which a technical

committee has been established has the right to be represented on that committee. International

organizations, governmental and non-governmental, in liaison with ISO, also take part in the work.

ISO collaborates closely with the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) on all matters of

electrotechnical standardization.

The procedures used to develop this document and those intended for its further maintenance are

described in the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 1. In particular, the different approval criteria needed for the

different types of ISO documents should be noted. This document was drafted in accordance with the

editorial rules of the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 (see www .iso .org/directives).

Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this document may be the subject of

patent rights. ISO shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights. Details of

any patent rights identified during the development of the document will be in the Introduction and/or

on the ISO list of patent declarations received (see www .iso .org/patents).

Any trade name used in this document is information given for the convenience of users and does not

constitute an endorsement.

Introduction

The symbols given in this document can be used on technical drawings for welded components. Design-

related specifications, such as type, thickness, and length of weld, weld quality, surface treatment, filler

material and testing specifications, can be indicated directly at the weld by means of the symbols. The

principals of this document can be applied to brazed and soldered joints.

Clarity can be improved by references to collective information in the drawings or references to

additional design-related documents.

Preparation for production can require detailed welding-related planning. The type of representation

described in this document can be used for this purpose and complemented by additional production-

related information (e.g. welding position, welding process, WPS, joint preparation, preheating).

This information is often given in production-related documents, such as work schedules or welding

procedure specifications (WPS).

Technical drawings are intended to clearly and understandably illustrate design-related specifications.

Welding-related drawings are prepared and checked by specially trained personnel (see ISO 14731).

This document recognizes that there are two different approaches in the global market to designate the

arrow side and other side on drawings, and allows for either to be used in isolation, to suit a particular

market need. Application of either approach identifies a welding symbol in accordance with this

document. The approach in accordance with system A is based on ISO 2553:1992 . The approach in

accordance with system B is based upon standards used by Pacific Rim countries.

Welding and allied processes — Symbolic representation
on drawings — Welded joints
1 Scope

This document defines the rules to be applied for symbolic representation of welded joints on technical

drawings. This can include information about the geometry, manufacture, quality and testing of the

welds. The principles of this document can also be applied to soldered and brazed joints.

It is recognized that there are two different approaches in the global market to designate the arrow side

and other side on drawings. In this document:

— clauses, tables and figures which carry the suffix letter "A" are applicable only to the symbolic

representation system based on a dual reference line;

— clauses, tables and figures which carry the suffix letter "B" are applicable only to the symbolic

representation system based on a single reference line;

— clauses, tables and figures which do not have the suffix letter "A" or "B" are applicable to both

systems.

The symbols shown in this document can be combined with other symbols used on technical drawings,

for example to show surface finish requirements.

An alternative designation method is presented which can be used to represent welded joints on

drawings by specifying essential design information such as weld dimensions, quality level, etc. The

joint preparation and welding process(es) are then determined by the production unit in order to meet

the specified requirements.

NOTE Examples given in this document, including dimensions, are illustrative only and are intended to

demonstrate the proper application of principles.
