Large-scale, one-side welding ( using copper backing ) was first adopted in Japan in 1961 at the Nagasaki Shipyard of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. Now several types of one-side welding have been developed and all the major Japanese yards have one-side submerged arc welding machines. In general there are three one-side, submerged-arc systems. Included are flux backing, copper backing and flux-copper backing systems. One-side welding of steel plate is done at a very early stage on the assembly line, prior to marking and cutting.
