July 2017 ShapeCUT EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT BEVELLING 1 B E V E L L E N G T H Bevel length is important to ensure two main things: strength and easier downstream operation once welded. When it comes to efficient, high-quality welding, consistency is key. 3 H E A T It’s important to consider the tolerance level when addressing the bevel angle. As long as the angle falls within the tolerance parameters, you’re set for a solid bevel. Heat can critically change alloy composition, which creates problems as it alters the structure and strength of the metal. Carefully consider heating processes when planning a bevelling project. A N G L E D E G R E E WHAT IS BEVELLING? Bevelling is the process of creating an angled sloped edge on a piece of metal. This is formed in preparation for a welding seam and its uses are endless, ranging from minor steel projects such as cabinet creation to major civil infrastructure projects. The welding shapes that bevelling is purposed for are defined by a series of letters: Y, K, V, and VV. Bevelling can vary in how challenging it is, based on the metal used. While steel, stainless steel and aluminium are commonly used, a bevel may also be required on a more complex piece of metal, such as a curved piece of metal that requires a bevel on an inside diameter. When bevelling multiple pieces together, it’s critical to ensure that each shape configuration is accurate, so that the welding seams smoothly align.
