Sometimes less is more! Most butt welds are made using a 75 degree included angle V butt joint and the welder must fill the entire groove. By going to a narrow groove you drastically reduce weld volume, weld metal usage, and production time. Plus weld defect rates are typically measured as a percentage of feet of the weld. If you reduce weld length you reduce defects.
