Welding Parameters on TIG Welding of Aluminium Plate
To improve welding quality of Aluminum (Al) plate an automated TIG welding system has been developed, by which welding speed can be control during welding process. Welding of Al plate has been performed in two phases. During 1st phase of welding, single side welding performed over Al plate and during 2nd phase both side welding performed for Al plate by changing different welding parameters. Effect of welding speed and welding current on the tensile strength of the weld joint has been investigated for both type of weld joint. Optical microscopic analysis has been done on the weld zone to evaluate the effect of welding parameters on welding quality. Micro-hardness value of the welded zone has been measured at the cross section to understand the change in mechanical property of the welded zone.
