AN ANALYSIS OF MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF ALUMINIUM WELDMENTS

Johny Purnomo

Abstract


ABSTRACT - One of the main problems faced in the process of aluminum welding is a selection of the appropriate combination of inputs to achieve the required quality. In this paper work, different size of filler wire and current settings will be used to clarify the mechanical properties of the aluminum weldment. Total of specimens to be carried out are 40 types. Butt joint is selected as a joining for this experiment. It will divide into two types, V-groove and Straight groove. Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) is used as a welding process in this experiment. All of the specimen will be tested using strength test. The result of the test was evaluated and compared to determine the appropriate settings for aluminum weldment. The result shows that the best parameter for V – groove joining is 3 mm with 100 ampere of current setting. For the S – groove, the best parameter joining is 1 mm of filler wire with 100 ampere of current setting where it gave a strong joint between two plat of aluminium.
