Weld Quality Prediction for Resistance Microwelding of Fine Cu Wire Based on the Back-Propagation Neural Network
A neural network model is established to predict the joint quality in resistance microwelding (RMW) of fine Cu wire and stainless steel thin sheet. The preheat current, welding current, weld time and electrode force are selected as the input parameters and the tensile strength as the output parameter in the model. The prediction program is compiled in MATLAB through the detailed designing of hidden layer and the selection of the transfer function. The network performance is verified by experiment, and its accuracy meets the production requirements in the actual welding.
