Paper Title:
Experimental Study on GMAW with Strip Electrode
  Abstract

GMAW with strip electrode is a new method, which uses the flat wire with a rectangular cross-section to replace the conventional round wire as consumable electrode. In the present study, the welding system was established. Then the typical arc behavior and metal transfer were analyzed. After that, high-speed-high-current welding experiment was carried out in both GMAW with strip electrode and conventional round wire. The results show that, Compared with the conventional GMAW with round wire, the welding arc of GMAW with strip electrode has much lower arc pressure, and the impact of the droplet on the weld pool is weakened remarkably. These two characteristics make GMAW with strip electrode suitable for high efficiency welding on the basis of maintaining the original advantages of GMAW.
