Quarter turn Vs "more than just a quarter"

jim said a long time ago to me that: welding pipe ought to be done with the pipe soft as possible.

and i begin thinking about how pipe is softer in the summer than in winter,

and how friction creates heat.

anyway before I go on too long with all the theorys.

wouldnt a full turn (or perhaps even more) be better "welding" than solely a quarter turn?

I dont think a quarter turn is enough friction to bind the two pieces into one (or atleast is inferior to a full turn, IMHO.
