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 "Schwei├čnaht 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

Schwei├čnaht = 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.
