Parametric Optimization of MIG Welding for Dissimilar Metals Using Taguchi Design Method

Authors(2) :-Kamaleshwar Dhar Dwivedi, Anurag Srivastava

The present work deals with optimization of welding process variables by using Metal inert gas welding.The aim of my work is to study the hardness that affect the welding joint of dissimilar metals. Stainless Steel 304 was welded to C-25 carbon steel using a metal inert gas welding which also known as gas metal arc is welding with the help of filler wire of stainless steel and 0.8 mm diameter. Argon gas was used as shielding gas in this process. Dissimilar metals welding have great scope in advanced technology now a days owing to their high strenght, hardness, and corrosion resistance properties. The combination of midium carbon steel and austenitic stainless steel has got large number of application in industry such as tublar product, building and costruction, nuclear plant, and heat exchanger assembly etc. Due to the fact that low cost of C-25 carbon steel and corrosion resistance property of stainless steel. All these applications are require welding of the two which can perform the desired service requirement of the industry. In this experiment we got that the hardness depend on the variable parameter and wire feed rate is the main effective parameter.
