Drawing translation

Drawing translation

Drawing translation

I'm working on a German to English engineering documentation translation project and have come across a welding note I'm not sure how to translate. The note reads "Schweißnaht mit R2 bearbeiten" which seems to translate to something like "weld with R2 process". I'm not sure what R2 process is. It is attached to a square groove weld symbol. Any ideas?

RE: Drawing translation

Schweißnaht = weld seam

mit R2 bearbeiten = machined to 2 mm radius (I assume mm for units)

RE: Drawing translation

Thanks. Are you sure it is specifically referring to machining and not a generic "process"? Translated to "PROCESS WELD SEAM WITH 2MM RADIUS"

RE: Drawing translation

I am sure that the English word machining is translated to the German words Bearbeiten or Bearbeitung. For the case of a weld, I suspect the machining is actually grinding.
