The term Orbital-Welding is based on the Latin word ORBIS = circle. This has been adopted primarily by aerospace and used in terms of Orbit (n.) or Orbital (adj.) for the trajectory of a man-made or natural satellite or around a celestial body.
The combination Orbital and Welding specifies a process by which an arc travels circumferentially around a work piece (usually a tube or pipe).
The concept Orbital Welding is basically a loosely defined term that is usually used for processed only, where the arc is travels at least 360 degrees around the work piece without interruption.
Consequently, processes, which interrupt the full 360-weld sequence such as for better puddle control (often used for MIG/MAG welding, using the down-hand welding sequence in 2 half-circles), can not truly be called orbital welding.
