Spanish term or phrase: "aguas" de soldadura
In a document from Spain for translation to British English, dealing with pipework construction in shipbuilding, specifically completion of welded joints:

"Una vez soldado se pasa a la zona de esmerilado en donde se retiran las posibles proyecciones, mordeduras, etc., nunca afectando a las “aguas” y cordones de soldadura."

Reference information:

Speed OK
The bead is fairly consistent. The ridges in the weld are semi-circular.
Speed Too Fast
Excessive speed results in a thin, weak bead. The ridges in the weld are elongated and triangular. Had the current been increased to compensate for the speed the ridges would still remain elongated.

agree  neilmac: Looks like "bead" could be a contender… and "ridges" could be "cordones". Vete a saber :-)

presentará, siempre que se use corriente pulsada, las marcas onduladas que
muestran el avance del arco en cada pulso (“las aguas de la soldadura”).
